3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark hazy brown with a small head. A bit malty aroma, some hints of spices and rye. Very acidic on the tongue, dry finish. Big on the palate. Not that much rye but very very good. Would like to try this on a cold winter night instead of in a blazing 32° celcius and sunshine!

Clear dark brown with a filmy off-white head which vanishes quickly. Nose consists of caramel, spices, rye, toffee, and chocolate. Flavor is mainly caramel, rye, coffee, chocolate and a slight malty sweetness. Body is pretty light and the carbonation is mild. Pretty good rye beer and the flavor improves if you let it warm up just a little bit.

Bottle at the brewpub. Cola colored pour with a small head. Toffee sweetness and a bunch of spicy rye on the aroma. Maybe some prune/grape as well. This is yummy - I’m digging it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy brown with minimal lacing brown head. Aromas of spice, chocolate, rye, and malt backbone. Taste is sweet with a boozy oily finish. A medium body overall. A bit less of the belgian flavor than I would have wanted. Does remind me of christmas in Denmark

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Old rating rerated 28.06.2013, tap @ Tørst:
Nice creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, sour-ish rye bread, hay, burnt caramel, dark sugar, coffee. Taste is slightly fruity sour-ish, dark malts, dark sugar, burnt caramel, grass, sour-ish rye bread, paint, almond essence. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, but I can’t really say I understand what people see in this one that’s so fantastic.
