Derek881 (1187) - 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.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2015
This dark ale pours with a great frothy head and a perfect dark brown colour. It has a sweet aroma but a bitter taste to the tongue and a lingering pleasent after taste.
