3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl bottle: poured clear light brown with a medium sized light brown head. Dark fruit in the aroma-prunes, raisins, a hint of banana. Nice aroma actually. The taste is fruity with raisins dominating. Fairly dry to me. I thought there would be more sweetness in it. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 250ml bottle (BelgianShop)
Deep reddy brown, small persistent head. Sweet subtle spicy aroma, fruity, banana. Pleasant carbonation, succulent in the mouth. Very sweet fruity, spicy, almost cakey initial taste, some brandy vanilla cream. Upon
swallowing, the maltiness fills out a little, and some burnt corners poke through the sweetness. A little sticky, but that’s its only flaw. Covers
7.5% very well.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 7.5%. Fruity aroma, hint of brown sugar. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Big, stable, creamy, rocky tan head, leaving nice lace. The flavour is quite malty, a little sweet, some roasted malt notes and a little alcohol. All in good balance. The roasted notes are the best part of this beer, quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar with some dry fruits and some spicy yeast. Taste is also dominated by some candi sugar and spicy yeast with a nice enough malt backbone. Carbonation is great with a slightly thin body for the style and no apparent alcohol.
