4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours an opaque coffee brown with frothy light tan tinged head. Aroma is a mix of mild raisin notes, almond, roasted grains, multigrain bread. Flavor is a very mild note of scotch, some brown sugar but the sweetness is awesomely balanced. Nice notes of freshly baked bread with notes of sugar. Body is balanced, light and creamy with high carbonation - just like a belgian beer should have :-) lovely

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost opaque dark brown color with a nice copper hue and low activity. Foamy and frothy light brown 3-4 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of caramel, molasses, dark berries, dark roasted grains, soft chocolate, vanilla, banana yeast, clove, walnuts, herbal spices. Malty banana bread feel, with sugary toffee, and sharp spices. Slightly creamy and oily medium body with prickly carbonation. Medium to strong finish of good length, not dry and ends clean, burnt malts and toffee, kind of a ginger red ale pumpkin feel, lots of fruity esters, properly spiced with crispy Belgian yeast. Fresh, well intensified, good accessibility. A bit too oily but still pleasant. Filling and warming. Higher ABV alcohol sensation. Very tasty and good balance. Overall excellent quality craft.

Dark brown no head. Roasted malt, tobbaco aroma. Bran bread, brown sugar, roasted malt, earthy wood taste. Not bitter at all however not sweet either, rather a balanced malty brune. Sticky sugary mildly sweet finish. Easy drinking.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is strong yeast, burnt wood and spice.
Appearance is clear dark brown with a tan head.
Taste is woody, treacle, currants and licorice.
Palate is rough, drying, very fine and high carbonation.
Overall a dark Belgian, sweet and fruity but too woody and drying for me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear dark brown with a red hue and a rocky off-white head. The aroma contains malt, chocolate, sugar, caramel, yeast, and, just like in the Blonde version, some iron. It tastes medium sweet and light bitter. Short finish, slick texture, average carbonation. Too one-sided and sweet, but more likeable than the Blonde.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahagoni with brown head. Aroma is chestnut, butter, phenols, more nuts, slight roast, slight syrup, some earthy notes, maybe christmas spices. Taste is bitter nuts with lots of syrupy sweetness, some dried fruits (figs?) present, slight carbonation sourness. More nuts in the finish. A bit spiky on the tongue. Nevertheless pleasant on the tongue and full bodied. For the amount of alcohol quite interesting and multidimensional.
