3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Bottle from Beermerchants. Deep ruby with a fine cappuccino collar going the distance. Deep enticingly Belgian aroma; mouldering plum, dark mushy grape skins, orange liqueur stirred with a Twiglet, star anise, maybe some spiced green tea...not to mention a hearty dose of booze. Hot, yeasty and slick with an instant burn in the throat; wheat and orange peel tang, squashy stone fruits not quite dried, aniseed, finishing alcohol. Hard work at first, especially if its the first beer of the night, but opens up with a certain Belgian..something. A sharer, even in a 330ml bottle.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 12/2013
Sweetish aroma has some solvent and plastic glue, pear and alcohol. Sweet flavour contains solvent, alcohol, raisins and wood. Warming and drinkable quad, but not very nice due to the sharp alcohol in taste.
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 05/2014
Aroma has raisins, ripe fruits and some sugary tones. Flavour has ripe fruits, some gluey tones, raisins and alcohol. Also some whisky-like wiidy notes. Very foamy palate. Interesting, there is still alcohol and glue present but somehow I like this more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Yard House - CIncinnati. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spots of film. Notes of figs, pepper, caramel, brown sugar, toast, sweet bread, cake, earth, and dates. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet and actually kind of toasty mouthfeel. Rich and tasty. ABV is pretty much masked. Good quad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked and caged 75cl bottle pours out a nice deep mahogany with short lived tan head. Boozy head initially greets the nose followed by prunes, raisins, some caramel and spicy yeasty notes. The taste enters pretty smooth yet on the thin side offering up prunes, raisins and a thin ring of dates covered with caramel. The finish has mild notes of pure booze coming to the surface to close out the experience a bit on the rough side.

Pours a mahogany colour with a beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, solvent and some malts. Flavour of raisins, sweet dried fruits, bready malts, wood and alcohol. Dry, sticky mouthfeel without carbonation. Warming finish of alcohol, raisins and some wood. Needs aging as the alcohol comes through way too much.
