3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours nearly clear darkish copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, with notes of herbs and yeast and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit, complemented by bitter notes of hops and estery touches. Hints of roast. Bittersweet aftertaste. Lively carbonation. Decent, well-balanced but not mind-blowing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
’Massieve ale’ commemorating the Battle of Waterloo en served in stone jars. Yellowish white head, clear bronze colour (I insisted to taste this from a transparent recipient, obviously). Weakish aroma, caramel, walnuts, red berries, chocolate bars. Mild caramelly malt taste, subdued sweetness with candi-ish and honeyish sweetness, fruity, slick mouthfeel, chocolatey malts in the end with rather weak hops. A bit one-dimensional and lacking body for this style of ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drank with Bram and Marijn 30-10-2014 for Brams birthday. Brown, clear and transparent beer. The beer has a ’warm’ taste. The taste is compelling, really nice for a double. Tastes similar to a good bokbier, reminded me of zeeburg dubbelbock. Bad characteristic of the beer is that it has too many carbonation, the beer stings in your mouth.
