Very sweet brew. Malty toffee in the aroma. A little thin texture. Smooth feeling. Nice delicious caramelly toffee and chocolate flavor. Too sweet in the end, though. Finishes with a strong filthy heavy feeling of malt and toffee.

Nice red color. More hops in the nose than I expected - slight spice to it. Not bad, pretty drinkable Belgian.

This is not a bad Belgian Ale. Malt, fruit and toffee flavors. Finish is crisp, clean, and dry.

Caramel, toffee nose, hazy brownish red, has a small toffee head. Treacle, candied malt flavours, good bitter finish. Very pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber-burgundy colour. Aroma is light, with treacle notes and a slight peach fruitiness. The body is light, but offers a vibrant character. Toffee and light orange notes abound, but are drowned out by too much alcohol in the finish.

Awsome clear red color. Very fruity nose...like sticking your head in a basket of dried fruit. Carmel sweet malt, and maybe a bit too much sweetness. Very fruity flavor as well. Not bad. A possible lay-away.
