4/5 rDev +6.1%
$ 2.59/11.2 oz bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle marked 11:19 K26F12 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of malt and yeast phenolics
Head average (4 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to irregular layer
Lacing OK – partial rings and stalactites of mostly small bubbles
Body dark brown with reddish cast
Flavor begins sweet and malty; fades to just sweetness; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation
A very pleasant brown ale, better (IMHO) bottled than on tap, at least here in the US.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes od raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a very good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice Belgian brown ale. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
