3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Occasional ’witch beer’ for the Heksenfeesten of Nieuwpoort. Thinnish but stable, creamy, yellowish white head, pure bronze ’autumn’ colour. Gentle aroma of white port wine, liquorice, toasted bread, caramel sauce, cocoa powder, coriander, coffee, redcurrant, wodka. Delicate candi sweetness, candied fruits, caramel, toffee, resinous mouthfeel with ’dusty’ yeastiness and some warming, liqueurish alcohol, some cloying sweetness in the finish too with coffee powder-like roasted bitterishness and medium long leafy hop bitter. Again a Scotch-style ale in disguise.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely clear deep amber color with a fine tan head that last and makes a fine lacing. Looks really great. Powerful and yet mellow aroma. Fruity, vinous, caramel and bready. Really delicious and inviting. Un expecting high carbonation. A bit fizzy mouth feeling. Medium to full body. On the sweet side and a moderate bitterness. Also an oily texture. Complex and tasty stuff. Changes a lot from the first to the last sip. Very vinous. Fruity and toffee. Bready and some spices. Nice evening sipper!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dutch’s, rated from memory. Keg arrived "aged" thanks to the importer. Reddish color, with a good khaki head. Smooth, lighter carbonation, medium to bigger body. Kind of a light tart taste, lightly spicy. Some toasty, earthy, spicy aromas. Not bad.
