2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big fluffy vast creamy light tan head changes slowly into a vast and thicker lacing on top of a hazy deep dark ruby colored beer.
Smell barley malts, toast, chalk, wood, brown sugars, cinnamon, toffee, darker herbs, autumnal herbs and a slight hint of liquorice.
Taste is a very nice mix of barley malts, liquorice wood, chalk, roasted wood, some toasted/light roasted brown sugars, raisins, bitter, darker herbs, hops and a slight hint of yeast.
Aftertaste has lot of malts with barleys, bitters, herby grass, light dry and some barley and liquorice wood toast.
Medium carbo, soft bit blown mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy texture. Nice beer, pretty dark!
