3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz bottle, very cool new label. Nose is malty and has definite Belgian yeast, also a touch meaty and with light levels of toast/roast. Some sugary candis and dark stone fruit, darker swaths of caramel/toffee. Pours dark amber-brown with a large and dense rocky beige head. Taste is watered-down Dubbel with a very airy, expansive fizzy body; strong mineral character and light-medium bitterness, but almost no sweetness at all. Very faint tang. Fully attenuated and faintly warming, the fruit and malt characters fade relatively quickly and cede dominance to lasting yeasty character, again very airy and Belgian. OK for slow-going, but not revelatory.

Pas de corps, beaucoup de mousse...rien de spécial. L’étiquette est très captivante par contre.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 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.

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.
