3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer looks nice. The color of the brew is a reddish amber, with a red glow. The beer pours a decent layer of rough white foam. The bulk collapses only to leave a thin drape. The beer is has some cloudiness. The smell of the beer is nice. I smell a nice sweet and slightly sour yeasty aroma, maybe it has hints of raisins. There is a small fresh hop aroma. The majority of the smell consists of a bittersweet almondy alcohol aroma. The other aromas are quite mild. This almondy thing is also quite present in the taste. Almost the whole taste consists of almondy alcohol. There are some fresh hoppy tones in the beer as well. There is a tiny coffee flavor in the far away distance. All in all the beer is quite nice. It just needs a bit more bit more variety in the flavor.

Bottle at home, picked up at Van Alsem. Clear dark amber, off-white head. Sweet roasted malts, caramel, sugarcane, chestnut, some spices, fruity notes, gumball. Over moderate sweet with fruity (light)bitterness. Body is medium, mouthfeel is good, with nice carbonation. A lot of bock-like characteristics but without the typical dry finish and leaflike bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 Amber brownish hazy , some sediment in the bottle, orange, perhaps slightly too sweet for the overall brew, oily feel and full body. A lovely experience that is noticeably unique.

Bottle. Pours dark, rather clear brown. Small white head. Smell is sweet, not really intense. Taste is bit bitter, thin, some malty base that is a bit metallic. Mild aromatic side, my guess is hops, but its really hidden. very blank. Not convinced

Thanks to Rian for sharing. Malty dark nose. The beer starts sugary sweetish. Not too deep. Easy to drink but even no bitterness in the end. Malty-sweetish. Sticky with hints of dark candy sugar.

0,33 litre bottle. Brown with a red glow. Spicey taste with a nice sweetness. Some light alcoholy warmth. Would define it as an winter beer but it definitely is a nice beer.
