3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Promising sour taste. Blackish color with little foam. The taste is balanced and sour and with something i can’t put my finger on. Most certainly a beautiful beer, but it doesn’t work for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark-brown/amber color with small head. Spicy aroma, with berries and some sort of souress. Taste Spicy and full-bodied, a bit tart. Flanders-style I?d say. Very well-balanced and gentle, but still powerfull. The ABV are not noticeable at all. Superb!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle of 33cl, in a Tumbler glass; room temperature.
Woaw ! So we’re in front of a beer with a nice and powerful aroma of spices, enhanced by that great taste. It says Belgian strong Ale, but I would say that she’s more like an red/brown beer ! A little bit of a sticky palate.
One of the greatest I’ve tasted so far ! Go go go !

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Finally rating this. had this a lot of times, but this time it’s the 2013 in a head-to-head with westy and rochefort 33cl bottle. Pours an almost pitch black with almost no head. Aroma has lots of sweet, yeasty esters with prunes, dates, prunes and stuff, but compared to the other beers, this one has american stout-like notes, like sweet tobacco, some cinnamon, slight roast, anis, licorice and caramel malts. Both lots of candy, but also pretty different with the licorice and the tobacco notes. Taste again is sweet, but with lots of exotic dry and almost bitter notes, like again the roast and the tobacco. Low carbonation and nice, full body.

Bottle at home. Aged for almost one year. Pours dark brown, almost black with almost no head. Smells of dried fruits, spices and coffee. Taste is lean, spicy. Low carbonation. I find this beer very pleasant!

Black color, minimal head. Aroma is very complex with notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts, banana, vanilla, wood. Same in the taste with a predominent sweetness first, counterbalanced by a nice bitterness. Low carbonatioon and oily texture. Definitely one of my top 3 beers!
