3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Clear deep ruby, thin tan head. Slightly malty sourness on the aroma. It’s a bit like a fruity brune. Some ok fruit, some drinkability, some fruitiness. Bit of sourness, which comes from the plum and dark cherry like fruit. It’s pretty decent if not quite at the level of repeat buying

Bottle, 25cl at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. It has a dark brown, almost clear pour, with a nice beige head. Chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and dried fruits fills the nose when sniffing it. The flavor has chocolate, roast, malt, fresh and dried fruits as well as a little bitterness. Full body, and a long, sweet caramel finish. Yet another nice one from van den Bossche. (080410)

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours cola color with a low off-white head. Aroma of dark roasted caramel. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is a bit overroasted caramel. Heading for porter almost. Flavor seems a bit citric. It’s not sweet to me. Finishes rather dark, but not extremely dry. Leaves dark roasted malt taste behind.
