2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
18th February 2009
Hazy dark brown beer. Good off white head. Quite crisp for a porter, good sharp carbonation. Not bitterness or smokyness, just good smooth malt with a vague streak of marmite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl ceramic. It pours a clear, dark brown body under a big beige head. It’s fruity and sweet on the nose, in that belgo-style way. Some cellar and dried fruits too. Belgo-fruity and sweet flavor, dried fruits, dark sugars and some cellar too. Full-bodied, effervescent and quite dry on the palate. Dry, fruity, caramel finish. A nice beer with a misleading name. 100331

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut colour with a light tan head. Aroma shows toffee, caramel, nuts. Lean toffeeish malt notes in the body. Light walnut, almond hints as well. Sweetish and pleasant, but does not capture my imagination.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of dark malt and arguably citrus hop. A huge frothy tan head on top of a ruby mahogany beautiful color. Although strong light is required to penetrate the ale. Full bodied, creamy carbonation. Some citrus sour, some coffee, arguably anise, could be prune or plum. The finish is fairly dry, lightly bitter, again some anise, and mostly just wonderful. Way underrated. Truly.
