3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown, muddy look with beige head. Aroma is intense, with lots of brown sugar but also somehow fresh. Taste is balanced at first, with some spices, dark sugar taste but without the sweetness. It slowly builds up to a bittersweet finish. Quite easy to drink for 10% ABV but the alcohol is a bit present in the taste. Carbonation is on the high side, something I don’t really enjoy for high ABV beers. Overall it’s a good representation of the style but not really my type of beer.

Excellent Belgian. Dark, nut brown pour with a foamy off white head. Nice head retention and lacing. Flavours of yeasts, brown sugar, caramel, burnt sugars, etc. Really nice natural, bubbly carbonation as well.

Huge off-white/tan head, fades very quickly. Rich ruby brown colour. First pour is fairly clear, second half is much more murky with yeast sediment. Aroma of plum, dried fruit, raisin, Flavours match but very rich, nice sweetness amplifies the plum, dried fruit, cherry. Slight alcohol in after-taste. Med body, dry finish. Complex and very nice.

Real dense and toasty with some nutty character. Complex fruits in aroma and taste. For how thick it was the carbonation and palate were great, well balanced.
