1st had this beer in De Bierboom (Brugge) and bought this 33cl bottle (Euro 1.60) to review at home. Best before 09-2013 and poured into a Westmalle chalice on a quiet Saturday night in (4th June 2011).
Looks the part, mini haze in the hazel-nut reddy/brown body, a thin but complete off-white foaming head sat on top. Bubbles rising to the surface throughout the tasting. The head also prouced some good heavy lacing.
Toffee in the nose, and the sweeter end of the malt table, no burnt or toasted bread or chocolate, just a pleasant toffee aroma.
The taste is a lovely blend of toffee flavours and understated hops, which give the beer a slight bitterness towards the end of the mouthfeel. The alcohol contend is well hidden and this is so easy to drink you could forget it has an ABV of 7.5%.
