clear brown with ruby highlights, sweet spicy aroma that quickly fades, light malt flavor with lots of spices in the finish leaving a bitter impression

the malt has ripened into some nice rich fruit, light bitterness that is well balanced now

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Noel poured a deep brown body with an heavy off white cap which left decent lace on my glass. Aroma of candied plums, raisins, and spices. flavor was similar to the aroma with caramel hints showing up. Nice and smooth, good mouthfeel. Overall it was better than i thought it would be, a pretty good beer thats worth a try. Originally rated on 11/24/08

CaptainTilven (161) - Nancy, FRANCE - APR 15, 2016
On tap. 2015 version. Limpid amber body headed by a fine and persistent foam. Aroma of candi, prune, clove. Taste is similar in addition to malt; fine, balanced, round but nos heavy; not very strong bitterness; quite light; coffee in the end. Matches well main courses a bit spicy as well as a waffer with toffee apples. Fairly classical and well done.

daje (3999) - NORWAY - MAR 18, 2016
On tap at De Heeren Van Liedekercke, march 12th 2015. Hazy brown body with a lively beige head. Aroma strikes as a punch of dark fruits, toffee, clove. Taste of caramel, raisin, spicy yeast, mild banana. Medium sweet palate with a nice aftertaste of prunes and apricot. Nice!

danielemolino (106) - torino, ITALY - FEB 16, 2016
Bevuta alla spina alla rock house a torino. Malti molto presenti. Perfettamente in stile. Buona per le birre del genere. Finale scintigrafico.

Silvan7 (1097) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 9, 2016
On tap @ Campiglio. Ramata carica limpida. Schiuma beige fine e persistente. Aroma intenso speziato di zenzero e coriandolo, caramello, lievito belga, crosta di pane. Lievissimo aroma erbaceo. Gusto dolce amabile, lievemente tostato, caramellato, zucchero di canna frutta candita. Amaro solo da tostatura. Equilibrata, rotonda, piena. Poco corposa, calda non molto carbonata. Armonica ed equilibrata

cheap (5307) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Looks like its vintage 2013. Wired champagne bottle but no way can this resemble champagne. Brownish darker ale. Sweeter mild aroma. Taste is malty alky bomb. Old aged lager feel to this one. Spices are not overwhelming but it is quite medicinal in the feel. Yes, now I think I feel a little dizzy about the whole situation. Would be rude if not for the aroma or the alky content. Nice package though.

Tognetta (717) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 26, 2015
Avermelhada, espuma bege de média formação e persistência. Aroma caramelizado, adocicado intenso, toffe, leve amadeirado. Paladar transparece o malte, intenso, adocicado, sem amargor. Álcool perceptível, aveludada, corpo médio, sem carbonatação. Aftertaste persistente, adocicado. Em geral boa, bem ao estilo belga.

Bule (1836) - California, USA - APR 10, 2015
750ml bottle pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Mild spice that overpowers the rest of the beer.
