4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really nice strong belgian ale. Dark amber color with thick white head. A really nice and complex suttle aroma of dough and banana among many other things. Yummy taste with plenty of sweetness but a great deal of bitterness and sourness to ballance it out. Lots of taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a rosy deep brown with medium off-white head. Sweet candi sugar aroma. Taste is slick, beautiful Tsjeeses, nicely balanced with a rich fruitiness but kinda hard to get much port influence. Disappointing in that regard but still a great beer.
