slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2010
bottled. Lively mouth-feel of brown ale w/ slight silver head. Smells of yeast, spice, & malty alcohol. Taste is sweet malts laced w/ lots of alcohol. A sweet bread Belgian. Hints of orange citrus, coriander, and other spices. Gets extra points for being this dark, having these flavors, and not being too sweet w/ candi sugars. A very good Belgian. Int. Beer of the Month Club.

Served in chalice at 3•. Pours very dark brown with a big crisp white head which lasts all the way to the bottom. Smell is underwhelming, not really of anything. Taste is sweet with subtle honey and malty undertones. Alcohol content is not readily apparent but builds in the aftertaste. A very enjoyable drink which I shall certainly have again.

Fules (309) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 9, 2016
Gyenge gyümölcsös, halvány karamelles beütésű illat. Gyümölcsös, nagyon picit citromos jelleg, kevés karamell íz is felfedezhető, és persze a háttérben folyamatosan ott lebeg a méz. Nagyon enyhén keserű. Szinte semmi utóíz. Kifejezetten testes sör.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a small lighter head. Caramel aroma with raisins and honey. Taste adds a mild spicy edge, presumably yeast esters, with chocolate and red fruit. Malty finish, with a bit short aftertaste.

ardeo (94) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2016
Bičre brune foncée en 33cl produisant peu de mousse. Les arômes sont agréables avec des notes de speculoos, café, d’autres. La bouche est sucrée, douce avec le miel en saveur de fond et encore le speculoos ;-)
