KajII (770) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a small (less than 1 finger) off white fizzy head that dissipated rapidly leaving behind a very thin film and small collar which did allow for some fair spotty streaks of lacing. The aroma was of a dark bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, honey, dark fruit (plums and raisins) and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was sweet and malty with hints of toffee and honey from the start with the finish being about the same but with a touch of dark fruit, a strong yeast presence and a moderate dose of alcohol at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a nice fruity sweetness left on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just short of medium in body with a mild syrupy texture and a nice strong carbonation. Overall a really nice tasting Strong Ale with a superb drinkability...

Holmen1 (2003) - 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.

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!

Silvan7 (567) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle @ home. Schiuma beige fine e persistente birra di colore ramato carico, riflessi aranciati. Aroma complesso, fruttato, frutti di bosco, liquirizia, tostatura liquore (sherry). Gusto dolce abboccato, poco amaro, retrolfattivo di liquirizia e noce. Abbastanza corposa, poco carbonata, rotonda e calda. equilibrata ed armonica.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
Nix "Dark Gold", sondern mittel- bis dunkelbraun, reichlich Schaum. Hefig-würziges Aroma, leicht säuerlich nach Sekt, etwas nach Trockenobst. Brotig, Karamellmalzig, leicht spritig, prickelnd-säuerlicher, minimal bitter werdender Nachgeschmack. Insgesamt mehr Schein als Sein, ein Belgier ohne echte Vorzüge!

Pours a light reddish brown with thin head. Nice heady aroma with dried fruits predominant. Thinner texture than normal and a very effervescent carbonation. Taste the dried fruits, cherries mostly, light caramel and then a little sourness, but not overdone. Refreshing and light for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
