a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - JAN 27, 2013
Dark beer, almost black, very thin off white head; aroma of yeast and sweet dark fruit; well carbonated; thick, slightly oily mouthfeel; spicy, treacly, sweet, cherries and raisins; alcohol always present - tastes super strength; the honey smack can be felt in the finish; the big flavours here are enjoyable, but they sure aren’t subtle.

lello4ever (194) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
La belga Lefebvre produce questa birra aromatizzata al miele. E’ la sorella maggiore della equivalente bionda che ho già provato in passato. Si presenta scurissima, marrone, quasi nera e con poca schiuma. Molto dolce al naso e naturalmente anche al palato, sapore dolce di caramello e il miele si avverte ma solo in un secondo momento. Carbonazione elevata, mentre l’alcool si nota senza eccedere.

Percy0103 (241) - MEXICO - FEB 11, 2015
Reviewed on 07/02/15. Bottle, 330ml. A dark beer with a red hue and sediments at the bottom and a medium brown head. Aroma is of spices, caramel, roasted malt, honey and alcohol. Taste is bitter with an alcoholic finish. Medium bodied with considerable carbonation and some astringency. I expected this beer to be sweet, but it wasn’t. Roasted malt character with a bitter alcoholic finish.
