Délicieuse encore meilleur en brune que en blonde, miel dosé à la perfection.

Mousse fugasse...ne laissant aucune trace sur mon verre...mais bon belles arômes de bière belge...l’orange domine (presque grand marnier) ainsi que le caramel. en bouche l’alcool nous réchauffe...le goût coule au palet...et est très persistant. J’aime!

Pours a dark brown with an ample offwhite (chamois even) head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is mostly of honey but there is also a definite fruity character to it. Taste is of raisins, plums and honey. It isn’t really sweet per se, though, just really malty. Honey isn’t big and bold here, it’s more of a background thing. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Alcohol is well hidden. A fair BSDA.

RaduLuchian (39) - München, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
A dark-red coloured bock with subtle honey, fruity aromas and caramel taste. Thick body with brownish head and a slightly bitter-sweet aftertaste. I would definitely recommend this this beer to bock enthusiasts.

På flaska från Belgien. Kaffefärgad med en hög beige skumkrona. Luktar kalt kaffe. Först har den an svag smak av kaffe som följs av en syrlig citrussmak.

allmyvinyl (3371) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2014
330ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pours dark brown, thick, but short-lived, beige head. Aromas mostly dark sugars and light herbs. Taste dominated by the candi sugar though. Sweet finish as well. OK, but I prefer beers to be less sweet.

androman (397) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Dark reddish-brown color, strong brownish head. Aroma fruit, caramel, honey, licorice notes, cinnamon notes, slightly roasty, malty. Alcohol is slightly present. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness, salty notes. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, medium bittersweet finish with soft honeyish sidetaste. Honey is not as much present as in the general Barbar beer, this one is closer to an average belgian strong ale. Good but not that exciting.

Beerhunter111 (7445) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, alkoholisch, belgische Hefe. Geschmack sehr malzig alkoholisch, fruchtig, würzig

Donker bruin bier. Smaak is licht zoet, framboos en niet hoppig. Smaak bljift niet lang hangen.
