3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, spice and toffee. Flavor is a nice heavy molasses with some dark fruit and spice. Spice lingers on the tounge after the swallow. This was tasty and probably the spicest Belgian beer I’ve had in a while. The 12% was not to be found.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012.08.05 - 11.2oz bottle in tulip glass. Pours medium orange/brown. Exceptionally carbonated and the head was easily 1/3 to 1/2 the glass and subsided slowly. Aroma has a bit of caramel note to it. Taste is very good, bit of a tangy taste envelops the tongue then gives way to sweetness and spices, and just a tad of alcohol burn. Very drinkable for a 12%.

Flaske 0,33l spandert av og delt med Rune under ratesammenkomst hos ham 21 Jun 12. Gjørmebrun på farge. OK kremaktig skum som fester seg litt til glasset. God søt fruktig aroma. Søte plommer. Lite kullsyre. Smaken svakt fruktig. Litt syrlig. Alkoholen godt integrert som et svakt søtt bakteppe.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle bought at Bacchus Cornelius in Brugge more than a year ago. Pours brown muddy waters. Beige head, spotty lacing. Sweet brown caramel malts to the nose. The flavour is made up by sweet spiced malts, dried fruity notes and sugar. Sweet ending with alcohol warmth. Full bodied. Ok, a bit unvaried, though. Shared with Finn (Tromsø, 21.06.2012).

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours orangeish with a large head that quickly disappears. Smells very sweet and medicinal with some fruity and spicy notes too. Taste is very similar to the nose - a bit strange. Medium to light mouthfeel. Unique beer for sure, but don’t think I’d drink it again. Unless it was free of course...

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
What the hell, maybe this was a bad bottle. Dark amber/hazy orange beer with a tan head. Aromas of earthy funk, and leather. Tastes of sour milk, dirt, molasses, butterscotch candy, and some lurking terrible element. Dirty water aftertaste. Bittersweet mess of a beer, I might need to try this again to see if the bottle I had was bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Muddy beer from the first glass, looks like muddy water which destroys the beer. Heater all the way down, sweet and strong.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure about the date, nothing to find at the bottle. Orange-brown coloured beer, head should hold a bit longer. Smell of fruits and spices. A bit of a metallic taste, fruits, caramel and slightly some earth.
