look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

330 ml poured into chalice March 21, 2017

A- Brownish red with 1 1/2 finger head, not as much retention as I would have liked.

S- Belgian yeast, malt, chocolate and apples

T- Lemon, chocolate, bread

M- Very smooth and enjoyable to sip, can swirl this beer in my mouth forever

O- High alcohol content is deceptive, sneaks up on you, hidden in other tastes. # 6 seems a little more complex. Prefer over the Chimay Blue by far.

1.19/5  rDev -72.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.25

APPEARANCE: Many ivory durable foam. It is a layer of thick middle finger permanently and brands of foam from the maximum height reached to serve. Dark brown and very watery black between. / AROMA: In the first instant of pouring it into the glass, the smell is rum. Almost immediately after the aroma is strange, as spoiled rum, if such a thing could occur. Maybe that smell comes from alcohol. Unpleasant. Prefer not go nosing. / Taste: Creamy. Intense roasted flavors. In the back of the palate and throat leaves a permanent taste a little aggressive. Taste very conflicted: have to like it a lot or you dislike. Definitely something burning, as if I had grabbed the stew at the bottom of the pot and also, for some mysterious reason, that stew had spoiled bitter. Salted. There is a beer that fit off the middle ground. / GENERAL ASSESSMENT: Not as good as they say. Pretty bad. 2.50 euros. / January 2013
