3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Raisin, dark fruit, candi sugar aromas. Hazy, effervescent copper with a long lasting brownish head and some floaties moving around. Very sweet, almost cloyingly so. Tastes like brown sugar, with some dark fruit. Short and hot finish, some dark fruit lingers. Light/medium bodied, highly carbonated. Not really what i’m looking for in a belgian strong, but decent.

330ml lcbo bottle. A good but not great strong Belgian ale. Not cloyingly sweet which is a plus but not a lot of fruity esters and next to no hops. Decent but not my fav.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy amber with a moderate beige head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a trace of fine lace. The nose has notes of caramel, raisins and dates, along with a slight spiciness. The flavour is quite sweet throughout with malty notes of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, raisins and perhaps caramelized banana. Belgian yeast comes through as well. The finish is long and malty with just a hint of spice. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, not the most complex, but a nice malty strong ale with elegant caramelized notes and Belgian yeast. 2014-05-09

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A sparkling copper-colored with many yeast sediments (ugly!). Creamy off-white head. Good persistence. Caramel smoky aroma with prune, spices and gingerbread. Heavy sugar sweet, medium bitter. Full body, oily texture, average carbonation, long bittersweet finish with a light warming note. Overall, a bit too sweet for me. The first two sips were terrible, after I felt more bitterness, but still... I will have to drink that one again !
