Sampled on tap at La Trappe. I really enjoyed this brew. Has a light malty flavor and a beautiful color and a clean on the palate.

Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with small sturdy head. Aroma is heavy and sweet. Chemical? Taste has something I can’t decipher completely. Sweetness, bitterness, but there’s also a strange aftertaste. I remembered this as a great beer, but somehow it disappoints me now.

BOTTLE 33CL from dcmchew. Thanks! Look: clear mahogany, beige frothy head. Aroma: quite simple, malty, brown sugar, very little fruitiness (pear?), no spice or hops. Taste: malty, quite sweet actually, light bitter herbal finish.

At first sight a bit dull. But after a few minutes it’s getting better. Roast, bit smokey, sweet honey notes, dark brown. A fine belgian style brown beer. But i wouldn’t drink so much of it that i would bite a pillar
