Very good composite yellow-cream head, fast goen over very carbonated, clear red-chestnut beer. Estery, hot-aromatic nose; rainwater small. Grapes or raisins, bit sweet. Thin, and yet bit cloying, somewhat caramel-estery flavour. Some citrus notes, not hoppy. Marzipan-retronasal. Not really well-bodied, thinnish finish. Not undeserving, but it is equally bit lame. Good point: very drinkable for an 8 % beer.

Mild flavor, slightly sweet, very much belgian though not that distinguishable in therms of what it actually tastes like. Was basically sweet, mild beer. Slightly fruity, i guess, but nothing really stood out.

Hybrid can/bottle. Thanks Randall! Amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, raisins, malt/caramel and fruits. Taste is moderately sweet and about the same as aroma. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Average Belgian Strong Ale.

Pours deep brown or deep read with little head. Nose is spices and strong esters with evident nose of dark caramel malt sugars nuts and figs. Flavor is sweet caramel malts and esters but finishes moderately dry. Kinda boring and lacking complexity. This wasn’t too impressive. I taste the same caramel malt in this beer that I did their wee muckle. meh

Old Tick, to me it seemed like a strong brown ale with belgian yeast, really nothign distinct.
