3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
275ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Week 2008)
Dark brown, ruby glints, healthy tight beige head. Cocoa powder and liquorice aroma, a little creamy. Taste has similar profile, but also a burn that’s not alcohol, not chilli, and on the whole not bad, but definitely quite spikey. The general direction is towards burntness, and the astringent character does build. Still a fairly tasty brew.

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.
