COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ispirata alla scuola belga delle Strong Ale, con il suo elevato tenore alcolico si presta a tenere compagnia in serate solitarie in poltrona in cui riflettere sul senso della vita, ma anche ad accompagnare sostanziosi banchetti. Dal colore piuttosto scuro con riflessi color rubino e un bel cappello di schiuma, seduce con un naso ricco e complesso in cui le note etiliche sono addolcite dai sentori di frutta secca. Al palato è dolce, rotonda, di buon corpo ma piacevole da bere.Molto lunga, offre un bel percorso suadente verso un finale di cacao e note tostate.

vonpolski (32) - Borup, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2016
Nice Deep-deepbrown beer with a nice foam, which dissolves to quickly. Good smell of dried fruit and raisin. There is lot of Belgian beer over it, but too weak. A nice beer to drink with a light dinner or sharing with friends or in my case with my wife.

Beggard (60) - - JUN 26, 2016
0,75l bottle, Beerlovers Vienna. Malty and honey aroma. Malty, caramel, bourbon, nut and sweet taste. Lasting aftertaste. A bit light for a strong ale.

bartlebier (3390) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2016
Grande bottiglia (66cl) shared with impuritylaw@ArtJamming Freiburg, post Emma Kuckucksrot tasting, nice find and closer. Bref: aspired to be a bodacious Belgian and lands at well-made dry dark ale with grapey sugars. - Pours a lightweight velvet purple brown. Virtually odourless even near room temperature, save some yeast pillow proteins, powder grape sugar vanillas, diciamo. Drinks like an anaemic Gulden Draak, very well and even pleasantly thinned out to its bare bone grape sugar essence, with dry Porto notes. Short finish. Odd superficial, almost postmodernly surface-level cover of a Dark Belgian.

willisread (2454) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle from Foodshow in Shibuya on sale for ¥400. Pours a deep brown with a small half finger beige head. Caramel, prune, Christmas cake, raisin and oak on the nose with some funky-lite yeast and vinous notes. Taste is slightly sweet with a light yeasty, funk finish. Some floral notes as well. Very vinous and dry finish as it warms. Starts off with a slight cola-like carbonation and mouthfeel.

HerrBierkoenig (1150) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 7, 2015
From 0,75l bottle, BBD: 01 2017 Pours deep hazy brown to red liquid, big frothy tan head, Aroma: malty, caramel, Belgian phenol notes, yeasty, Taste: light to medium sweet, light to medium bitter, light to medium sour, yeasty, caramel, toffee, yeasty, phenol notes, spicy, Palate: light body, slick to creamy texture, soft to average carbonation, long caramel yeasty finish, Overall: fine, but not such good, would describe this rather as a dubbel than Belgian Strong ale, quite watery, not much intensive, drunk it, but not realy enjoyed.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Fruity smell with raisins and roasted sugar. Similar taste. Light and very drinkable, not overly sweet.

Samuel214 (554) - SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Doft av torkat frukt, vörtbröd, russin. Luktar och smakar som en belgare som jämnat till sig. Lite för snäll i smaken, näst intill lite blaskig. Ändå helt OK.

sonotono (248) - torino, ITALY - MAR 20, 2015
Core marrone, schiuma non abbondante. Corpo pieno, frizzantezza moderata. Odore dolce, caramelloso, fruttato. Sapore dolce predominante, malto e caramello, ma non stucchevole. Alcool abbastanza ben nascosto.

stomper (9) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 31, 2014 does not count

fiammanghilla (956) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl @ exultate. Scura con schiuma nn troppo persistente. Tirata fuori da un surgelatore più che da un frigo, quindi recensione un po' falsata dalla temperatura. Birra forte belga senza troppe pretese. Maltata ma comunque bevibile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
