Likely several years old, found on clearance at the local shop.

Great caramel malt and melanoidin character in the aroma complement the Belgian yeast ester notes of pear and bruised apple well. Flavor is mostly pear skin, apple, and caramel malt, slightly nutty at the finish. Not offensive, but not particularly characterful.

Clear dark amber colour, nice big head. Some caramel, hint of prunes in the nose. Tastes a bit bland, some cola flavours, some caramel, a bit of tart. A bit flat for my taste. Really average strong brown beer.
