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

Pored into a pint glass from a 750ml bottle, corked.

A: This beer pored a dark brown with a slight ruby look.

S: No doubt that this is a Belgium strong ale. The beer smelt semi-sweet. There were also distinctive yeast, fruit and baked bread notes.

T: This beer was very sweet. There was a fruity and yeasty taste. It was bitter on the back of the tongue.

M: light to medium bodied beer.

O: This is a great beer. Noting else to it, cant wait to try Local 1.

Poured from a 750ml corked bottle into a pint glass (I was on a train so this was my only glass option).

The cork flew out with avengeance and hit the carriage roof and was recovered a few seats away (be warned!!!).

Pours a ruby red to dirty orange/brown with a frothy off-white/tan head.

On the nose, yeast, bread, orange, clove and a little - but not too much spice.

On the palate pretty much all the flavours described on the nose and in addition maybe a touch of alcohol, vanilla, sweet molasses and honey.

Medium in body moving slightly towards full with just the right level of carbonation ie - not too much!

Overall a good Belgian style beer and would definately have it again, although from memory I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Local 1 which I had a few months previously.
