Bottle. Not bad, it’s getting some poor rating, but I enjoyed it.
Definite notes of bread, dark fruits such as rasins and prune. Toffee sweet finish with honey, I do detect that meattalic taste that others are complaining about. For me, that is the only downside.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 330 ml bottle.
Clear, sparkling, orange-red brown with an enormous head if cream-colored, creamy foam that settles slowly to leave very nice lacing.
Aroma of dark bread malt, yeast, toffee, honey, grape, plum and raisin.
Taste of sweet dark malt, molasses, toffee, prunes, red wine grapes, tropical fruit and a touch of clove. Sweet, fruity and malty, but with enough complexity to keep your interest.
Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of cereal and milk chocolate, light to moderate herbs and cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with hints of raisin, port wine and cola. Head is large, fizzy, light brown, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear dark mahogany. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter and moderately acidic. Palate is medium, oily with a fizzy carbonation. A nice malt presence with good hop and yeast aromas makes this a pretty good Belgian Strong Ale.
