3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From slightly aged bottle. Brownish ruby appearance. Slight but pleasant aromas. Nothing strong or unpleasant in the taste, but it’s not particularly strong either. I wouldn’t call this a "strong" belgian so much as a typical but solid entry into the belgian category. Taste it if you have the rare opportunity. Thanks for the trade, Doug.
Sweet toasted aroma. Metallic flavour. Some sweets. Head disappears quickly. Drunk from a porcelain helmet. ruigo (3000) - PORTUGAL - FEB 14, 2017

T: malt, caramel, dark bread, hint of coffee, grassy, cardboard, quite watery, lemon, hint of plums, medium body, low to medium carbonation, it´s controversial beer there are good tones mixed with bad, so for me light above average, 0,33l bottle from Spar supermarket in Oostende.

Bottle 33cl bought at De Bierboom in Brugge last year. Pours dark brown with a big beige head leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Nose: chocolate, roasted malts, dried fruit, caramel. Taste: medium carbonation. Little bit of the same: chocolate, some dried fruits, roasted malts and caramel. In the end bitter hints.

Sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015 as "Airborne Christmas (Lamborelle) 8%". -- Clear amber brown color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sweetish, some caramel but decently balanced actually. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad.

Clear, dark copper colour with dense head. Syrup aroma with some sourness. Roasted malt taste. Rather sweet, light body. strap (915) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2015
Served in a replica WWII helmet. Pours light brown. Smooth drinking with a little brown sugar. Decent Dubbel. Not the best, but a novelty brew kraddel (8145) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2015
Pours unclear , amber/brown/very light milkchocolate colored . Rather small white head that fades fast . Smell is sweet , some caramel . Taste is grainy-bitter, sweetness ( caramel aspects ) . Very thin mouthfeel ( of you look from the top of the beer to the side it even seems to be rather clear ) , so I’m guessing ( ! ) a watered down intense brew . Which would be a shame, cause I feel like this ’pure’ versio would have been better . And if I am wrong, well , I’d still love for it to have more body and intensity . Good carbonation . Some yeast fruityness in the back . BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
33cl bottle purchased and drank in De Bierboom (Brugge) on 5th Feb 2015. Overall a little disappointing but I might be being unkind. It poured out fine, a dark brown body with full and lasting beige topping. Malty molasses rule the nose and flavour yet it seemed weak and thin even with the liquorice and spice feel the taste gave after the initial semi-sweet molasses had calmed down in the mouth. The beer just seemed unbalanced and untidy. EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2015
Brune foncée, effervescence moyenne-faible, col beige moyen. Principalement maltée, caramel qui tend un peu vers le café, un peu aqueuse. A very boring beer, à peut-être regoûter dans 3-4 ans (qui sait?)!
