Bought at Beer Planet in Brussels. Drinking from standard glass.

A: Medium-large head that dissipated quickly (before drinking any of the beer). Light copper color, opaque.

S: Apples, pears, spices.

T: It definitely has that signature A Vapeur taste (as the smell would imply). It also seems to have a couple of interesting, subtle notes - maybe just a barely-perceptable hint of roastiness in the finish, and some bitterness that wants to come out but cannot.

M: Medium body and carbonation - not really a session beer.

O: Another enjoyable beer from A Vapeur. I don't think I've seen it anywhere outside of Beer Planet, though - even at the brewery.

BB 04-07. Litle white head and a clear deep golden with amber shine beer. Nose is strongly alcoholic, some hoparome even after half a year, vanilla, oaky note and good maltyness. Taste is full and again very alcoholic with lots of liqorice, pepper and candysweetness and maltyness followed by a good but not to high bitterness.
Litle too alcoholic and spiced in mouthfeel but further quiet plesant. Well drinkable and IMO enjoyable brew that maybe is even better when it's fresh..
