Colour of dark tea, cloudy, with a beautiful foam. Aroma of herbs, flowers, tobacco and spices. Few flavour, light bitternesss, quite long herbal aftertaste. It has an interesting aroma but an unpleasant bitterness.

Getting some clove, nutmeg, caramel, and toffee - but light in bod and not at all too sweet. Very balanced in terms of spice. Boyfriend disagrees with my love of this...I suppose this beer is divisive (66 overall in July 2017), but I’m a fangirl.

AshtonMcCobb (6590) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep amber to brown with a nice lacy head. Nose - toffee with a yeasty tang. Taste - more of the same. Some Jamaica cake. Palate - close to medium bodied with a swetvyet tangy texture. The finish is dry and tangy. Overall - solid berr. Would’ve said this was either an Abbey Dubbel or a Biere de Garde in style.

3.8
Lore (2738) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 29, 2016
dark brown colour, moderate sized creamy beige head; aroma of dried cherry, chocolate, leather and earthy notes, some peach, hints of smoke and maybe banana; taste is the same with mild lactic acid, sweetened cocoa powder and bread yeast notes; quite unique Belgian strong ale

3.5
Maakun (5548) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Dark brown with nice creamy beige head. Lots of cloves, caramel, allspice, banana bread, raisins, cinnamon, overripe fruits, light cocoa, bakers yeast. It’s actually quite bready but with lots of dark malts and spices too. Soft dried flowers in the finish and on the nose. Over medium sweet and medium bodied. Feels a bit sugary, but not too full bodied, still quite drinkable. Decent beer but lots of spices in here...

3.6
adamnowek (2709) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2016
Deep brown with a tiny mocha head. Aroma is vinegar and fermented fruit. Taste is lots of cinnamon, allspice, and caramel with a light sour finish. A bit thin.
