Koelschtrinker (15557) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 5, 2016
Süßer Kaugummigeruch. Der süße Malzbeginn ist weniger schlecht als der Geruch es darstellt. Kräutrige Noten, wässrig, gleichzeitig zu süß. Noch okay. 10/7/9/7/6/7

Pours a dark brown glass of beer. Nice aroma of caramel and raisins. I rather enjoyed it.

33 cl bottle. Deep red-brown color. Big beige/mocha head, rocky, uneven, good retention. Aroma’s: sweet, brown sugar, red fruit. Retronasal it’s sweet malts, fruit candies. Flavor is sweet, malty, sweet fruit. Alcohol is warming. Medium bodied. Not much going on in the finish. Well made, but pretty standard sweet strong Belgian.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2016
Not something that I will remind in some time. Nothing special, just some plain brew with a good dryness inside. Ok for one.

Can't taste the 8.5 ABV. Taste of dry fruits and an alcoholic flavour. Good to chocolate Desserts

ferrinche (63) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - FEB 6, 2016
Muy buena Ale belga, muy equilibrada, sin rastro de sabor alcohólico, muy al estilo de la Rochefort 8, con la graduación alcohólica perfecta para que uno note todos los matices apreciables. La verdad muy recomendable.

imdownthepub (12585) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottled at La Fleur en Papier Doré, Brussels. Dark brown with cream head. Sweetish, fruity, malty beer, fairly rich with a sultana / raisin note. Quite smooth and easy on the palate but not as complex as the deScription would suggest. It’s fine.

vincentvega72 (280) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2016
Roodbruin helder bier met plakkerige witte schuimkraag. Zoet aroma van kersen, caramel, siroop, beetje likeurachtig. Smaakt ook zoet, beetje plakkerig. Doet me in de verte wat denken aan de Urthel Samaranth. Warme afdronk. Beetje te zoet voor mij persoonlijk maar voor de rest prima bier.
