3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Murky reddish brown pour with a large off-white head. Nose of malt and sweet fruits. Tastes of sweet fruits, caramel, and malts. Just a subtle hint of spice. Very smooth and drinkable with a balanced amount of carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a whitish head. Nice aroma with some fruit and maybe malt. Taste of caramel, hay, malt and mabe, maybe some chocolate? A bit dry. Medium body. I poored it in my Westmalle glass and much of the carbondioxide went away. If you use a glass with smaller "mouth" you might get it too much carbonated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown with a little clinging head. Malty nose on a fizzy high carbonated body. Same malt flavor but a rough finish. I think this bottle had spent too much time on a shelf.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a slight reddish tint with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty and on the sweet side. Flavor is full of the malt, with some yeast - definitely on the sweet side, but nicely balanced. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Red-brown with nice tan head. Loads of sediment. Fruity aroma... Dry, fruity, and lightly sweet. Doesn’t seem as polished as ales from Rochefort. I’d prefer it will a little less carbonation. Even so, still a very good beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can’t say enough about this one. Love it! Rust pour with tan creamy lasting head, nice lacing, large particles/muce sediment, brown sugar smell, creamy texture, soft carbonation, sweet with some fruity tang hints of orange, smooth. I have a slight bias, one of my favorites.
