3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Batch 008. Opened with a decent pop, releasing a plummy cloud of vapor. Pours copper with a 4 finger frothy head. Aroma is something like plum, raisin cake and treacle. Med body. Flavor is treacle, raisin, plum/prune and a hint of chocolate. Certainly not dry, but itís within a tolerable range of treacle. Iím of two minds about it, but it makes me eager to try something like a tripel. Likin this!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smell is raisins and light malt. Taste is thin, refreshing light rasiny malt. Not really sweet, which is nice. Thin and while on the lighter side flavorwise, it makes it drinkable for me since Iím not a huge fan of the style.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Boring appearance: zero head/lace. Medicinal aroma coupled with failed sour grain. Belgiany, funky, spicy, so much malt. Bleh; not for me.

Taste is very malty with fruit, berries, and drired fruit. High carbonation, medium body. Somewhat barley wine-like, and not really a dubbel.
