3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 1/27/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle from the Rare Beer Club. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a very thick beige head that slowly recedes to super thick and rocky lace. The nose is malty but dry with cocoa nibs, some chocolate, cola, and vanilla. The flavor is the same, very dry with the cola notes up front, moving to the toasted cocoa nibs and a nice dose of roasted bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long cola and bitter roasted finish.

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

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! ;)
