3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost black body, mahogany/cherry color against light. Nice beige head. Also nice malty aroma, with caramel and herbal dominant notes. Dry. Noticeable roasted malt and cognac aroma in background. Taste is good, starts with swetness but evolving to dry and bitter finish. Cognac, caramel and herbal notes are dominant. Quite high carbonation. [Bottle]

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 08/11/2014. Blackish, very dark mahogany brown, little beige head. Smell is sweet, cocoa and chocolate milk powder, herbs and roots, light roast, chicory coffee, light liquorish,… Taste is bitter herbs, liquorish, leaves, sweet chicory coffee, cocoa and chocolate milk, light roots, hazelnuts, touch dark fruits, light caramel, light bark, sweet,… Higher carbonation. Really surprised, way nicer and better than I expected. Way better than their stout. Excellent brew. A nice regular stout made be an ordinary Belgian brewery? Well I be damned.

Zaskoczyła mnie tak słaba ocenia tego piwa. Spróbujcie jeszcze raz. Jest palony słód, jest karmel, są śliwki, suszone owoce, dym i popiół... Wszystko jest. Chaos, ale jakże przyjemny! Jedyną wadą (!?) tego piwa może być to, że jest absolutnie nieokiełznane.

Unique. Pours very dark brown, big seafoam head. Aroma applejuicey. Palate interesting - chalky almost in a good way. Flavor is pretty light - maybe subtle chocolate. Overall pretty nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl Bottle as Buffalo Anno 1907 Ale. Dark brown colour, light-beige head. Aroma of raisins, dark malts, dark fruits, some yeast, caramel, grain, some pumpernickel. Flavour is sweet, malty, dark fruits, raisin, touch of smoke, caramel, sweet fruity finish with a hint of alcohol. Light to medium-bodied, overcarbonated. Not a fan of this, it’s too sweet for me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amber pour with very small off white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, hay, floral and hops. Taste of yeast, caramel, slight fruits, hint of citrus and slightly hoppy finish. Very thin mouthfeel and lower carbonation. A little dissapointing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber body, pillowy nice stable beige head. Fruity aroma with freash yeast, red berries, classic hops, caramel malts, a very decently made brew. Light yet flavourful taste, starts medium bitter and ends m=with a pronouned yet never cloying fruity sweetness. Only the aftertaste is a bit, well, dusty or cheesy or something. Drinks easy enough. Good brew, bit like the Belgian ’Scotch Ale’ style. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs, labelled Buffala Anno 1907 Ale))

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: dark brown with red highlights and a large off-whiye head. Aroma is caramel and malt with a hint of cocoa powder. Flavor is sweet with toffee, a pinch of cocoa, and some mild yeasty spice. Palate is rather thin in the mouth with high carbonation and a candy sweetness throughout. Decent Belgian ale, but many more flavorsome choice out there.
