Fizzy amber pour. Quickly becomes a still beverage. No head, no lacing, no bubbles. Looks like a glass of iced tea. A roasty malty aroma with a tinge of a sourness. Bitter, malty, a bit carbonic, and dry. Boozy after a few sips, but well hidden. Nekk (8) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2012 does not count

After two horrible lagers I needed to remind the palate what good beer tastes like. This was lurking in the back of the cellar calling for attention. A solid Belgian that I could drink all night long it comes in as a reasonably affordable option. If it weren’t for the difficulty in tracking this down in Ohio I would restock once the cellar was thinned out.
Aroma / Appearance - The gushing tower of foam was a little bit of a surprise. Once it settled I was left with a rich ebony brown base and papery white head. Caramel, candy sugar, and sourdough bread mix effortlessly. It feels like a warm piece of toast with generous layers of Nutella.
Flavor / Palate - Creamy and sweet the palate is sparked after a first sip. Like the center of a Twix the sweet chocolate feel grows until it coats the tongue with a candy feel. Caramel, whipped cream, and ethanol are the general drivers of a solid but not overly complex Belgian. If I had to do it over I would have drank this a long time ago; despite being 9% it does not feel like it has much aging potential.
Light brown and hazy. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Sweet aroma, burnt sugars, yeasty, bread, dried fruits. Flavor is heavy sweet, more burnt sugars and yeast, moderate bitter finish. Creamy texture and soft carbonation. Notes of alcohol. Zita (6331) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011

From bottle into tulip. Light Amber with a crisp white head and slight lacing. Cranberry aroma with a little tart cherry. Bitter cherry with slight orange, and malt. Fairly oily on the tongue but has enough carbonation to make it work. Overall a decent beer, deanso (10282) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - OCT 20, 2011
