3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a very dark amber color and formed a nice very light tan bubbly head that subsided quickly and left some lace. The aroma was of malt and fruit, very sweet. The flavor was of malt, fruit and some spice. The body was a medium and the finish had elements of both the fruit and the spice. The alcohol was detectable, but not distracting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Alcohol is the first smell so only light tones of plums, dates and syrup are recognicable. Amber, more reddish, little head. Warming alcohol taste, plums are the main taste. A bit thin but fullmouth. Nice stone bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Spicy, syrupy nose, dark clear amber color, and a low tight head. Brown sugar and cinnamon tastes with a touch of fruit - dates. Medium body and a thick palette that leaves a sweetness on your lips. Very nice and a good balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very solid dubbel style belgian. Sweet malt? check, caramel sweetness? check, nice yeastiness? check. Not loaded with complexity, but defectless and very solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not bad but too expensive for this beer. Nice head, good flavor. $8.00+ for this bottle. The empty will be a fixture on my bar.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Round, clean rum-like nose. Clean, yet unaggressive aroma of peach, coarse hop, almond extract, sharp alcohol (as it warms) candyish malts, alongside cotton candy. Superly dense, creamy foam with attractive lacework. Medium-light texture. Semi-complexity with marshamallow cream-like, touch of fresh hop finish, and cardboard. Slight brash dryness. The hops and malts are of the highest quality here. Refined, yet restrained in all aspects.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Faint hazy dark red/amber with huge ice creamy tan head. Doughy yeast, fruity malt and hops aroma. Medium smooth body. Gentle bitter start meandering to sweeter malty flavours eventually to a light sweet dry finish. Relaxed and relaxing is how I would describe it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark and cloudy. Belgian fizz and head. Spicy and complex, but not as overwhelming as other belgians. Cool bottle. Would buy again if not so expensive.
