3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At draught at the Gentse Stadsbrouwerij. Chocolatey brown with a yellowy brown head, served in its own flute shaped glass. Tastes nice, sweet and spiced. Not much of an aroma. Lacks body.
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 A very distinctive Ghent beer. Most telling on the palate, but generally satisfying. Ghent is a magnificent city and in the old town this is a fine libation. Would I drink it again, probably no. But in the Dulle Griet it is marvellous and worth the appreciation of professional beer samplers or liquid explorers.

23-07-17 // bottle shared at home. Deep brown beer with a creamy beige head. Malt forward taste, sweet caramel, mild boozy dark fruits, raisin. JaKeAFC (1292) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2017
Sample at the brewery. Light brown color, thin creamy head somehow persistent. Aroma of sweet roasted malta, caramel, cherries, candy sugar. No hops, as they don’t use it, some bittering herbs instead. Taste sweet, smooth sweet finish. Bontus (805) - Flanders, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2017
Bottle 33cl from Dranken Geers. Nose of sweet malts, munich malt, dark bread, slight fruity. Aroma of raisins, chocolate, sweet cream, capuccino even. Taste is rather sweet, lots of residual sugar. Not really sticky, the palate is smooth and velvety. Surprisingly rich but maybe a bit too sweet. rand (1860) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2017

DijkBier (596) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Hazy brown with quickly vanished beige head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, caramel, red fruits, plums, raisins, cherry, and indeed some nuts. Taste is quite sweet and quite much cherry and other red fruit; too much for me, and somewhat flat. Quite low carbonised. This beer is not well in balance to me; and not my taste... satanas147 (22) - FRANCE - SEP 21, 2016
Fairly average. Roasted grain, bit of spice, hints of bread and dark fruits and maybe some raisin . Dark amber color, very few foam.
Zlotta (3984) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Hazy, brownish amber with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity and a bit spicy aroma of caramel, brown sugar, some nuts and slight hints of dark fruits. Sweetish-malty, moderately yeasty-spicy and minimally fruity taste of caramel, nuts, some honey, clove and some dark fruits, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, smooth and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice! KoNrRiI (1657) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

A very hazy, brown color with a small, off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, sugar, and vanilla as well as some sweet dough. Taste of malts, caramel, sugar, dark fruits, and some notes I cannot distinguish from the mix yet feel their impact. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is sweet, medium long, and emphasizes the caramel. Overall, not bad.
@Fête de la Bière 2016, Vevey - hazy and quite dark brown beer with a good head retention; toasted aroma of caramel and biscuit, light spicy; full-bodied, pretty sweet with a chewy spicy, malty and sweeties-like finish
