4.65/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a chimay goblet.

A: Dark, a rich black colour with a head that fades slowly to a small layer of foam.

S: A very fresh smell, reminding me of summer, but with the addition of rich dark fruits.

T: I get malts first that quickly start to compete with a hoppy taste which adds some bitterness and the whole thing mellows out as you swallow. A salty cheese and onion flavour emerges and puzzles me before I realise I have dropped a crisp into the glass...

Overall a very good brew, mellow yet complex and a pleasure to drink. Addition of cheese and onion crisp not recommended.
