Derek881 (996) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Poured the beer from a large bottle into a trappist-style glass to drink. The appearance was a mostly-cloudy dirty brown color with a slight deep amber hue and an average-sized foamy and creamy off-white head with modest retention, good lacing, and light cling. Its aroma featured dark fruits, including raisins and prunes, and lighter floral and earthy notes, along with a touch of caramel. The taste had a slightly sweet earthy-floral effect with a touch of sour grain and some light caramel malt, but was under-developed overall. Its body had low-to-average carbonation and fizz with a somewhat flat and wet mouthfeel with low density.

You could just assume by the name, that this was going to be a dark gold pour, and you would be right. The head, a soft beige, billowed out of the top of the glass before I could catch it. The aroma spilled with it, an almost metallic, burnt caramel with yeast lingering in the afterward. The carbonation is just comfortable; not too fizzy, just right to carry the flavors forward. All in all, this is extremely drinkable. if I didn’t have available one of my regular go tos, this would definitely be my next best bet.

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, serveringstemp. 13C. Søt alkoholaroma mens jeg sjenker i litt Duvel-glass, med højt storboblet skum og ny aroma av molasse og kirsebær. Diskret humle balanserer elegant sødmen, og den overrakende slanke munnfylden (for denne vinkelhastigheten) gjør den eminent drikkbar. En fin øl til bruk i godstolen sammen med lørdagsavisene.

Buongiorgio00 (718) - - JAN 24, 2014
Birra belga scura dal carattere particolare, decisamente dolce, con note di frutta scura, tostate, con un individuabile sentore alcolico. Ricorda in qualche modo la forte emotività e le tinte pittoresche e scure dei quadri di Brouwer, e penso che a lui, da bravo fiammingo, sarebbe piaciuta!
