Sampled at Kroegske in Izegem. Appearance: Reddish brown, clear, decent head. Aroma: Malty sweet, some spiciness, some brett. Flavor: Definite brett "horsiness", some sourness, some malty sweetness. Finish is very drinkable, with a nice brett/sweet balance.

This beer perhaps looked the best of the 3 that Gaverhopke brew, and offered a lot of potential as such. However, it was really let down by its lack of any depth of character. Perhaps we drank this beer too young?!. Dark, black looking beer, which reminded me of a Barleywine. Poured with a deep brown head, which soon disappeared though. Quite flat, little carbonation present. Nose was of very burnt malts and coffee, almost stoutish, but the sweetness soon kicked in the middle with a very warming effect when swallowed. Not much of an aftertaste, mainly a sweetness that dissipates as soon as the warm sensation does. Reminded me of a strong but rather bland Old Ale from England. Disappointing. I intend on reviewing all the Gaverhopke beers again next Easter if I get chance.
