Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-brown with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar and light fruit. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, candy sugar and a light citrussy bitterness. Ordinary IMO.

Thanks to bu11zeye for the 16oz bottle of this Belgian. Pours a murky dark brown with a burgundy tint. Thick beige head and nice lacing. The aroma is malty and nutty, but has some characteristics of a Flemish Sour too. Medium-bodied and smooth with flavors of burnt malt, raisin, sour fruit and yeast. The finish is on the thin side and is rather fruity. All in all this is a decent Belgian. At times it is well balanced and at others it is not, but more often than not it is pretty good.

very dark brown. Smell of toffee and roast and alcohol. A hint of sourness and dryness and sweetness, yet none of the above. Complex in every sip, yet simple and very drinkable. Very much liked.A surprise at Volo Cafe.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at kerenmk’s place. Dark brown a big bubbly beige head. Malty aroma with a bit of fruity esters, a bit perfumy, yeasty spiciness, caramel, a bit of licorice and a bit of alcohol notes. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, some fruitiness, light toastiness, a faint chocolate note, a bit of licorice and a drier finish, a bit bitter, slightly spicy and slightly alcoholic. Medium-bodied and over-carbonated. OK.

Looks very good - dark with an off-white head. Aromas are earthy, coffee, sweet and bready yeast. Flavours are sweet malts with roast coffee. Some spices on the palate with more bready yeast following. Not bad - even though it is a little simplistic. The faux stone bottle looks great on the mantle piece (if I had one - I have radiators).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml ceramic bottle. Pretty swish looking packaging. Dark brown orange-tan beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is of brown sugar, honey, toasted rye bread. Fairly simple, light spiciness but the yeast is generally subdued. Light plumminess but also some metallic flavours. Some rumminess as well. Body is a bit thin and it’s fairly bitter for the style. OK, but not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark clear brown. Smells and drinks like an English brown. Vanilla, maple, wood, sweat socks in the aroma and flavor. Somewhat syrupy, and a little bitter. Chemicaly-woody finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Super Saver. I’m pretty stoked about this one. The pour emerges a deep brown/ruby through light, with a 2-finger, uniform khaki head. Nice look. The aroma is of corn flakes, cabernet grapes, some brown sugar, hazelnuts, and very slight aroused female taint. The flavor is malty, with solid almond, caramel, red grape, apple, and cherry hints. Very crisp taste and smooth finish. This one is very good, but steep at 6-7 bucks a bottle. That said, this bottle will rpoudly sit in my bottle collection, as it is a great speckled brown pop-cap ceramic bottle.
