3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown body with airy, light caramel brown head. Clovy nose heightend by acidic vinegar nose and whiffs of Brett and a whisper of chocolate. Body is smooth, not much carbonation despite the full head. Liquid Bread Belgian yeast, with touches of chocolate and sourdough, spiced by clove. Fairly complex and actually somewhat reminiscent of Fantome.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Compared with the 2011 version, 2012 is simply over spicy and lacks a complexity to add variety to your sips. It possesses a wonderful aroma of Belgian species, but this beer is not particularly enjoyable to drink, although it delivers on all the aesthetic elements.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a deep black brown from the bottle with bubbly tan head and little to no lacing. Aroma of belgian yeasty esters that lead to dark fruits, taste follows with a sweet malty finish. Meh, the 2010 and 2011 were better.

Bottle shared at RBWG, poured an amber brown color with aromas of malt, brown sugar, and light tartness. Flavors are the same, candi sugar in aftertaste. Thanks to whoever brought this one.

Bottle. Pours dark. Aroma is belgian yeast and malt with a similar flavor. Not a fan, too yeasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown pour with frothy tan head. Brown sugar and a bito funk like dried paper. Sweet malt but the same funky spice flavor as before. Medium bodied and fizzy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a extremely small sized head of brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a hazy ruby red brown colored body and a oily lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
