Much better than your standard brown. Carmel malts, hints of raisons, cinnamon and vanilla. Smooth and not too sweet in the finish. Great label.

Belo creme denso e castanho. Pouca duração.
Liquido opaco, marrom intenso.
Aroma caramelado, alcoólico, canela. Pungente.
Bom sabor. Suave. Malte torrado. Alcoólica. Breve duração. Mesmo...
Retrogosto de pouca intensidade, opaco até eu diria.
Não valeu a pena...

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. 330 mL bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is a brownish ruby with a minimal white head and some sporadic lacing. The aroma is surprisingly sour (perhaps the beer has skunked) And there is a little more of a booziness to the sour on the back of the aroma. The flavor is definitely a bit more nutty than I thought it would be, but it was nicely received. The mouth feel is definitely thin, but the medium carbonation does help out a little. The aftertaste is quick and painless, and a little watery. I wish this thing had a little more of the nuttiness that the flavor delivered

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes od raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a very good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Belgian brown ale. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
