3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel chalice. A: Very dark mahogany, opaque, one fat finger head, very good retention and lacing. S: Raspberry, malt, molasses. T: Brown sugar, malt raspberry, molasses, hints of yeast and cork,booze well hidden. M: Smooth and crisp. Light body for the high abv, moderate carbonation. O: Fairly typical dark beer from the Du Boca line up, for some reason there seemed to be less going on than with lower strength beers from the same brewery, by no means a bad beer but unexciting.

Bonne bière brune à 8,5%. Assez légère mais tape un peu la tête. Pas trop forte en bouche
