Another deplorable t Smitje brew. Burnt cardboard and rotten vegetables abound in every facet of this brew. Drainpour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Talk about from one extreme to another - the beer before was a tropical piss and now this. Age a small wedge of world champion aged gouda to set my mouth up. Yum! Worked perfect. Poured with a tan head. No lace. Hazy brown color. Odd mix of aromas: dark, ripe fruits, dark malts, a hint of wet cardboard, fudge, nuts, and and cocoa. Flavor was a little lighter. More of the dark, ripe fruits, some yeast, and honey. Soft body with a bit of tang from carbonation. Not much apparent alcohol surprisingly. Not the heavy hitter I wouldíve expected either. Great beer though. Could get to thinking this is a session beer only to get carried out or stumble to bed.

7/14/10. On tap, very last draw from the keg. Yeasty aroma with plenty of Belgian fruitiness. The flavor is crazy Belgian with huge bitterness and plenty of fruitiness, even a touch of alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml Bottle: Aroma of Belgian yeast, malt, slight caramel, and slight dark ripe fruit. Poured a muddy brown color with a small, off-white/tan, fizzy, head that disappeared except for around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Opaque. Full of small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, Belgian yeast, slight hops, slight raisin, light caramel, slight fig, and a hint of toffee. Medium to full body. Smooth, slick, then slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, malt, Belgian yeast, light caramel, and slight dark ripe fruit finish is lightly dry. 12%ABV is amazingly hidden throughout. Almost too drinkable for oneís own good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a clear ruby brown color with orange highlights. The head was off white and reduced to a lasting film relatively quickly. Distinct raisin and molasses aromas. There was also a faint whiff of milk chocolate and some alcohol. A bit rum-like. Medium bodied and sweet with moderate to high carbonation. Caramel dominated the flavor, but didnít mask the molasses, milk chocolate, or raisin. There was also some clove. A cornucopia of dark fruit flavors accompanied the sugary sweetness at the end. There was a warming alcohol effect, particularly in the stomach. Very nice beer.
