Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, clove, some licorice, Belgian yeast. Taste lives up to the aroma with a nice complement of bitterness on the finish. Great beer.

Flavor of rich, roasted malts, sweet and alcoholic in the mouth, although a little thin. Finish is slightly bitter with a hoppy note. Very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Very deep red, large self-supporting beige head, some sinky bits. Plenty of CO2 in the aroma due to the high carbonation. Aroma like a
belgian bruin. Quite refreshing palate, lively carbonation. Not a big taste at all, again like a belgian bruin, but slightly watered down, and not at all sticky. Pleasant rubbery burnt corner to the taste. Fairly spicy too, cloves, a touch fruity, and some sticky raw hops,
Has a slightly tingly hoppy finish. Very refreshing, I prefer this
to many bruins despite the fact that the flavour profile is very
similar. No hint of 6.5%, drink this by the pint.

750 ml, bb 21/06/12. Translucent mahogany with a lasting half-inch of cream that completely ices the glass. Aromas of unsweetened molasses, wheat, clove, cocoa and light toffee. Flavors are the same, plus some light citrus and cardboard bitterness. Medium body is smooth, dry on the finish and slightly watery. Tastes like a dunkelweizen with a Belgian yeast.
