330ml brown bottle. Surprisingly great mix of aromas in this one - tea, floral hop, bitter chocolate and fruit. Thick creamy off white head, tight beads. Leaves amazing streaky lacing in the Affligem glass. Beer is reddish brown and hazy. Caramel/dark malts up front, hops arrive mid way through and carry into the finish. Some yeasty aftertastes, and at times it seemed a bit to carbonated, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Poured clear reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, sweet malt and mint. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, bittersweet finish.

chromeotaphor (22) - Grevenbicht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2014
Pittig kruidig fruitig aroma. Mooie crème achtige schuimlaag. Smaakt vrij vlak, koolzuur lijkt wel crème achtig, in het begin maar ontwikkeld zich in de afdronk kruidig. Apart.

ttoadee (616) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Deep brown pour, small but steady toffee head. Nose is Belgian yeast and cherries. Bittersweet. Middle is plums and brown bread drizzled with molasses. Finish dries somewhat, but there is still a dark fruit sweetness there.

Birra classica belga. Buon sapore e retrogusto persistente. Troppo gassata per i miei gusti ma passabile.

Holmen2 (702) - NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Muddy dark amber. Even beige head and lacing. Herbal aroma. Malt and bitterness in taste, and an almost herbal aftertaste like cough medicine.

Tsekouratos (189) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUL 3, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark ruby color with a huge frothy white head. Aromas of sugar and caramel. Pretty much similar taste with notes of spices and liquorice. Mild aftertaste, low to medium body, medium carbonation.
