3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Fruity and roasty aroma, with candy sugar and a hint of bourbon. The flavor has roasted malts, a touch of ash, dark fruits, grains, and molasses. Unique in a very good way. I wish I could try all of these Bodegal beers.

Dark opaque brown color, small steady brown head. Berries, some malt vinegar in the nose. Medium-bodied. A bit tart, berryish (cranberries), some sweet notes, vinegar, coffee, caramel. Strange brew like Bogedals often are, but this is tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Birch. Reddish brown. Comes across with an almost sour attribute, a musty flavor to be sure, seemingly Flemish. After some masterpieces, this comes across as thin and not-quite-ish. Super potential that doesn’t come thru all the way. (#4465, 2/4/2012)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma had caramel malts, herbal spices, fruits and cork. The flavor opens with caramel malts and ripe fruits. Midway I get some wood that becomes more like cork. The herbal spices remain through the finish. There is an earthy bitterness toward the finish. This was a strange beer, almost like a Fantome light.
