COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Kitty på hytta kvelden før avreise til Belgia: en perfekt opptakt til turnen, her er masser av aroma og smak i form av sviskeplommer, rosiner og alt som godt er av tørkede frukter. Alt er klart, inkl. nødvendig faglitteratur som Around Brussels og Around Brugge in 80 Beers!

AlainG (1175) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Une bière brune avec plusieurs sédiments en suspension, ayant une mousse dense, qui se résorbe lentement en un mince col. Un nez fruité , de figues fraîches, de pommes de saison ou encore de raisin vert. Un goût très appréciable de fruits secs, d’épices , de marmelade et d’alcool. Un bel amalgame.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a trappist goblet. Pours a chunky brown to amber with a thick, beige head of velvety, fluffy foam. Nice retention. The aroma is fairly complex with notes of raisin, plums, clove, wood, banana. Taste is everything that the aroma indicated. All those complexities meld together so well. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. That raisin and wood really stick with you on your tongue. This is a really nice Belgian Strong. Well deserving of it’s rating.

mathieuc (1229) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle thanks to czar, thanks a lot! Pours somehow clear brown at first and then murky and full of yeast floaters. Aroma is spicy, malty with a strong candi sugar presence. Taste is quite sweet but balanced by some kind of bitterness. Flavors are raisins, malt, cloves and a little cardamom. Mouthfeel is comforting with soft carbonation and a full body. A grand beer!

Dark red appearance. Sweetness of banana and prunes? Nicely complex, tasting like a dubbel to me. The abv is well masked and it is syrupy on the tongue.

Chuny brew with a red colour. Burnt caramel, lemon merengue pie aroma mixed with cider and cherry notes. There is something grassy in there as well. Sweet pie flavours and cherry notes mixed with chocolate and roast. very nice stuff that grows as it opens up. Great beer!

750ml bottle that expired 02/13. Deep mahogany pour with a ton of chunks floating around. Nose of slightly burnt lemon meringue. Great beer but not that complex.
