3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The taste starts out sweet with flavours of brown sugar, dark fruit, caramel and some spice. There’s a malt character and a Belgian yeast backbone. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance.

Roasted aroma, lacks the strong dominating scent of the Vicaris Winter (which is a positive thing) but still retains the flavour.

bottle picked up at pivni rozmanitost in prague. very excitable bottle - plenty of froth ended up on the floor, what ended up in the glass was light brown with a reddish tinge. plenty of stonefruit in the aroma along with cocoa powder; hints of candi sugar and earthy spice, finishing quite dry

This Belgian Ale pours a dark brown with a perfect white head. Don’t over refrigerate this beer otherwise you will be left with no scent and very little flavor. I should go to a real beer bar next time! ;)
