Kirkas, keskiruskea olut vaahtoaa alussa kohtalaisesti, mutta vaahto katoaa aika nopeasti kokonaan. Maltaisen makea, sokerinen ja pehme, hieman luumuinen tuoksu. Maku samoin maltaisen ja pehmen makea sek aavistuksen luumuinen. Ihan nautittava olut ja belgialainen ei pet, mutta eihn tss kieltmtt mitn erityist ole. J kauas parhaista belgiveljistn.

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Pours a hazy red-amber colour with a beige fizzy head that disappears rather quickly leaving no lace. Nutty nose with dark fruit aromas and some brown sugars. Raisins, dates flavours with some nuttiness in the middle and pretty solid bitterness in the finish. Lingering roastiness and hints of caramel. A good Belgian strong brown beer.
