Big beige and very stable head on top of a deep dark-brown beer. Chocolate and coffee/mocha fill the nose and dominate flavourwise, along with some smooth and rounded bitterness, vanilla, nuts. Aftertaste?s a little bit dry. Medium-full bodied, creamy texture, low carbonated. Nice brew.

Courtesey & thanks to Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle sampled. GUSHER, all over the place. Pours a dark brown, faint red hue, little head. Smells sour, lactic, chocolate, tart, sour milk, coffee grounds,… Tastes of minerals, sour milk and sour coffee grounds, tart, spoiled cream, chocolate, chocolate malts,… Higher carbonation, infection style. To me this tasted like infected, whatever it was, it was a drain pour.

From the $1 bin at Hop City (from old phone notes). Had to spell out the name in the phone to remember. Poured with crazy head and ample lace. Head literally lasted minutes. Smell is candied sugar, super sweet, little spice. Taste is little cardboard, cola, ripe fruits, little spice, candied sugar, toffee. Understand why this was only a dollar. Past its prime and light struck or poorly kept. Oh well still worth the dollar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Beerhive.
Appearance - total gusher to start with so lost a third I’d guess Then opaque black with a generous creamy head.
Nose - nutty with an elegant sweet toffee thing going on.
Taste - definite boozey note initially then it opens oit into more sweet toffee.
Palate - initially medium bodied then the sweetness kicks in. The finish could be fresher but the richness becomes accustomed to.
Overall - yes very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Dark brown body with a medium beige head that holds well. Excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, salt and milk chocolate. Flavour of raisins, nuts and toffee. Full body with a foamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation. A decent but unspectacular Belgian Ale.

Neus heel rokerig met beetje metaal, donker bruine body met mooie bruine kraag. Opnieuw rokerige afdronk, vrij kort af. Wat bitterheid in de nasmaak maar al bij al vrij vlak
