Taste: full body with sweet caramel malt backbone well balanced with fruity and coffee notes. Good attenuation and well balanced. Really drinkable. Aftertaste: caramel and coffee, sweet malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dark red hazy colour, whith thin head. Aroma is dominated of belgian yeasty, vanilla, caramelly, dry fruits, iron and sweet maltynes. Flavor had a sitric sparkling mouth feeling of dry fruits, caramelly, flowery, choclate. Medium body, medium fruity sweet malty, bitter finish.
A bit to thin body for a beer who has 9% alcy!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @Bir&Fud (Rome). Bruna, intensa, schiuma bianco sporca abbondante e molto persistente. Al naso sentori di caffé, caramello, fichi secchi, prugne mature, zucchero di canna. In bocca è molto dolce, con leggero amaro finale, zucchero di canna, caffè. Corpo medio, inferiore alle attese, carbonazione medio-bassa. Il naso non è male, ma in bocca si perde un po’, risultando poco equilibrata e con un corpo troppo esile. Inconsistente.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Bagsværd Vinhandel. High and lasting white head. Hazy dark brown body. Relatively sweet smooth and creamy roasted malt bread straw coffee caramel aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness but with just a hint of spices. Low carbonation, long sweet finish. Well balanced with an alcohol level that is nicely hidden.
