4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 A cornucopia of sweetness, fruits and malts are obvious right from the start of the aroma with this beer. Despite of the maltyness continuing in the taste, the beer remains refreshing. It has malts, chocolate and riped fruits as the most dominant flavors, but the taste is all in all unbelievable complex taste, and nearly impossible to describe in detalis. Perfectly balanced hoppy aftertaste. This beer must not be served too cold, then it will loose a lot of it’s special elements, and the alcohol will be to obvious. The beer is neither watery, nor too sturdy for its style; it has the perfect body. Amazing beer.

This is a damn good double. Pours a rich reddish brown...very fizzy head. Aroma is big rich spice and fruit...chocolate, and candi. Flavor is much more mild than expected from the aroma, but still very balanced and tasty with the fruits and rich spices coming through. Mouthfeel is quite light.

Pretty dark reddish color with a khaki head. Aroma was sweet, smooth, with hints of dates, figs and sugarcane.
Flavor smooth, clean, much lighter body than your usual Belgian, which makes it very drinkable.

Similar to a Chimay or Ommegang. The aroma was good. Flavor of fig, raisin, and apple. As it warmed, it had a nice alcohol burn but was really silky and easy to drink.
