look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass. Yes, a pint glass.

A- hazy medium-dark brown color with a mega head that melts down to a nice thin mocha cream layer with a bit of lacing. This beer can be called many a different color when moved about in the lighting.

S-like a loaf of freshly baked bread, very malty with a hint of fruit and alcohol.

T-for all that malt aroma, there is flavor from some dark fruits and a slight hop bitterness to balance those malts nicely.

M-body galore, it tingles the lip and tongue right away. The carbonation is visibly disguised by the beer's appearance yet easily detectable upon drinking.

O-I can't identify the dark fruits that I taste but I know that i like them. This is one real beer. Smooth and flavorful @7.5% is no easy task.

330ml bottle poured into a goblet.

A:
Slight hazy brown with an orange amber hue, one finger of light off-white head quickly vanishes to some foamy films on top. There is not much lace. Carbonation is actively high.

S:
Some dark fruits, mild phenol, floral, malty like dark bread, candy sugar like caramel, there is also a hint of slight roasted.

T:
Leading by fruity ester, sugary and malty sweet, grip of phenol reveals afterwards along with pleasant hop bitterness and somewhat burnt.

M:
Light to medium body, velvety smooth with fine amount of crisp and carbonation wrap up the palate, rather dry finish.

O:
Harmoniously well round balance, lively but not too harsh, very drinkable of course.

My reward after a weekend of chores around the house!

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a goblet. Pours an opaque, silty brown, with a starter head of tan bubbles that quickly fizz off, leaving a few islands of thin wispy head.

Has a rich, complex aroma, with buttery toffee/buttercotch, hints of alcohol, dried figs and dates, and a slight tanginess.

Quite tasty, this ale starts with a warm toffee/scotch flavor, followed by banana, sweet fig, and a tanginess that is hard to tell if it is the taste, or an effect of the feel of this beer. Finishes smooth, leaving an aftertaste of an echo of grapes.

Medium bodied, with a softer feel contrasted against a tangy, carbonated feel that hits mid-tongue. The finish is a bit dry.

A very nice tasting beer, it has lived up to its hype. One I will definitely be having again.

Bottle dated 280114. Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a chalice. It pours hazy brown due to sediment with a frothy white head. The head quickly dissipates and leaves a little bit of white head on the top. Bubbles can be seen meeting the head, indicating high carbonation. The aromas of caramel, fig, roasted malt, and Belgian yeast hit the nose. I can also detect a small amount of alcohol. The taste is sweet, but not too sweet. The flavors of caramel and fig go a long way towards covering up the alcohol content, but the faint taste of alcohol is there. The mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation and a dry finish. The carbonation prepares you for the next drink. This is very easy to drink. Overall, this is an outstanding beer.

Enjoyed this 11.2oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pour a very hazy brown hue with a thick, frothy, 2-finger, whitish head that slowly dissipates in to a wispy lace.

S: Scents of caramel and dark fruits. Belgian yeast aroma in the background.

T: More fruity than expected – mostly dark fruits with a nice alcoholic twang.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Another excellent brew – all three I tried, 6, 8,10 were exceptionally. Really enjoyed drinking these brews.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a goblet, bottle date of 080915. This pours a hazy tea color with a massive fizzy head which dissipates faster than I can type this sentence. The smells are wonderful, very fruity, lots of dark fruit, a little belgian yeast esters, some brown sugar and alcohol. The feel is medium, high carbonation. The taste is wonderful, a little fruity, some peach, strawberries, apricot, lots of dark fruit and some brown sugar, very nice.
