cervmagpt (622) - PORTUGAL - MAY 3, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 (style 26D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: medium-high caramelized fruit aroma with notes of pear drops, complemented by a perfumy flower-like alcohol presence. very faint toasty malt presence. APPEARANCE: deep amber color with a reddish hue and clear. large and dense, tanned head with good retention and lace formation. TASTE: similar to the aroma with moderate pear drop flavor, rose-like alcohol and a cramelized malt background. medium-low bitterness with an almost dry finish. malt balanced. PALATE: medium-high carbonation with medium body. OVERALL: a dark belgian strong ale with a nice and different character.

erickok (5099) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Mahogany coloured. Toasted, toffee, brown sugar. Bitter for the style, but also quite clean. Alcohol warms up and enriches, which is good because the crisp carbonation doesn’t help.

Koelschtrinker (16284) - 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
