This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar.

ABT_S54 (303) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
33cl bottle served in a De Dolle glass. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a slightly off white head which last quite well. Aroma is dusty spices with the taste being more of the same. Alcohol is reasonably present with a warming glow. Quite a flavourful and characterful Belgian. More of a winter warmer than the style would suggest.

OntBeerDrinker (511) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
7.5% on my bottle: dark amber red with a little carbination and a little laceing. Smell is like yeast, grape, promagaranet, yesty wine and sweet malt smell Taste a little wet a little dry some warmth a grap pomegranet like taste with some typical Belgium ale taste and wine. Ive had better btw. Not horrible or 100% gross. Good moments bad monets. Finish it ends fruity sweet and heavy.

Buona birra un po’ come tutta l’abbazia de rocs ci ha abituato. Non speciale come la "brune" ma di qualità anche questa.
