2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark mahogany color; persistent thin head. The aroma is a bit vinous, but also smells like rotten grapes. The flavor is smooth, with some sweetness, and just a touch of woody complexity, not enough, no fruitness nor sourness. Not my kind.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very dark brown with a thick, but short lived, off-white head. There was plenty of carbonation to start but this died away quickly. Aroma of caramel & dark fruits with roasted notes. Flavour started sweet before an earthy, dry finish with warming alcohol. Unusual and enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl bottle: Pours a very dark ruby with chestnut edges. Modest cappucino head. This beers exudes brown sugar, fudge, toffee, and chocolate. Very sweet on the nose. Slight green apple note in the back. Taste is slightly less sweet than the smell leads you to believe. Medium to light bodied. Flavors of prunes and rich malt. Toasty notes that play well with the lively carbonation. Many flavors reminiscent of the bigger bolder belgians but without the head-ache. Worth a try and I am sure I will come back for a visit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle form Uto. This beer has a smart appearance, sort of regal. Not exactly what you expect from a bottle with Buffalo Bill on the label. Burnt mohogany in colour with a creamy mocha head. Spotty lacing. Nose of roasted malts, toffee, caramel, maple syrup, banana and coffee with a hint of berries. Taste to match with the addition of brown sugar. Sweet and spicy. Not too much, not too little.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown reby red coloured with a small and diminishing off-white head. Roasted malty aroma, very fruity with some yeasty and herby notes. Full palate. Finish is sweet-bitter, light roasted, with a rather short ending. Very drinkable, but this is no stout.
