4.19/5 rDev +10.3%
Poured from 33 cl bottle into a Corendonk snifter.
A: Pours dark reddish-brown with 1/2 inch light tan head. Excellent retention and a nice coat of lacing left on the glass with each tip.
S: Lightly sweet and very fruity with some bready malt.
T: Flavorful with sweet and bitter in about equal measure. Nicely fruity with dark fruit (raisins, figs), plums, caramel, dark bread, molasses, and light spices.
M: Medium-full body. Very smooth. Soft, medium carbonation.
O: Excellent but short of world class.

3.26/5 rDev -14.2%
A: Brilliant orange and light brown color. Quite impressive. The head came and went so quick, it was off white.
S: Great roasted caramel scent. Slight alcohol spiciness. Dark fruits, plum and raisin.
T: metallic, roasted caramel malt. Again for only 7%, the alcohol is prevalent.
M: watery, slight hop bitterness. For me the metallic flavor lingers to long and the beer leaves me wanting more dried fruit and malt.
O: nothing I would club baby seals to find again. Glad I tried it, but it was not amazing.

3.45/5 rDev -9.2%
Beer poured from a bottle.
Beer poured a murky brown colour. Very light aroma of chocolate malt and slightly figgy. Tasted sweet belgian yeasts with a little malt. Not bad, but not much to it. Very drinkable, especially for an 8% abv.
Would I buy this beer again? Probably not, but maybe...

4.09/5 rDev +7.6%
Poured from 33 cL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a coppery-brown with 1/2 inch light tan head. Decent retention. Faint lacing.
S: Sweet caramel malt, figs (and other dark dried fruit), clove, cinnamon, bready yeast, and a hint of cola.
T: Nice strong dark dried fruit (raisins, figs), caramel malt backbone, molasses, hint of heavy cream, and fairly predominant spices (clove, cinnamon).
M: Sweet with a strong body. ABV lends itself to fortifying the body and yet the beer ends up drinking easier than the 7% would suggest.
D: A nice drinking brew. Solid for style.
