2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a brown color with little head. Sour cherry and plum aroma almost like a Dr. Pepper. Taste was not as sour as it smells. Kind of watery flavor and palate but lots of carbonation like flavored seltzer water.
Dark brown, with a bit of light tan foam. Nose has dark sugars, watered down molasses, caramel cream, Belgian chocolate malt, light earthy spices. The taste isn’t as sweet as expected, but quite earthy and spicy from the start, with grassy notes, crushed peppercorn, clove, faint cardamom and even some light tannins. Some toast and light caramel, some faint apple mash, and then a light bitterness in the finish. Dusty, earthy aftertaste, somewhat dry, too. Medium body, rather high carbonation. A nice enough Belgian dark, a bit rustic, authentic-feeling. I like this style. Zilverenmaan (200) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2017
Aroma not bad but faint: candi sugar, alcoholic sweetness, butterscotch, some plums. Taste creamy, sweet butterscotch, a little burnt maybe, some caramel, not bad but very thirteen in a dozen. tricksta_p (4664) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, dried fruits, raisins, spicy notes, yeast. Flavour is above medium sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is medium and a bit creamy. Not really my kind of beer, but it has some pleasant easy smoothness and slightly creamy body. Not bad. ruigo (3009) - PORTUGAL - FEB 8, 2017
