beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice dark copper color with a frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma is of banana, lighter fruits, spice like allspice, pepper and coriander, along with some honey notes. The flavor is again of spice notes like coriander, clove and pepper, along with the lighter fruits and banana, along honey, caramel and some breadiness. The body is light to medium with a chalky and dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid Belgian Strong Dark Ale, I would love to go visit the Heeren van Liederkercke resturant sometime.

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Würziger, hefig-schokoladiger Antrunk. Dieser ist ein guter Einstieg, das Bier wird später nämlich noch würziger und intensiver, wenn auch nicht so stark, wie es der Antrunk vermittelt. Ausgewogen, eine leichte Herbe bringt frische in das sonst festgefahren malzige Bier. Der Alkohol versteckt sich nicht, stört aber zu keiner Zeit und symbolisiert einfach und schlicht seiner Anwesenheit in einem schweren Abgang. Zudem hefig, nussig, abgerundet. Genussbier! 9/12/12/13/12/12

mjs (6292) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2010
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at De Heeren van Liedekercke) I had this beer with food that was prepared with the same beer. This dark brown beer was quite complex. Aroma had fruitiness, spiciness, hops, chocolate and malts. Palate was full bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, aniseed, spiciness, fruitiness, hops, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste had aniseed and malts. Rarely have I had beer with so many flavours that still match. I enjoyed drinking this.

On tap at the De Heeren van Liedekerke beerfest. Pours a dark red color with a medium white head. The aroma is malty and spicy. A nice flavor of smooth malts, some nutty elements, lots of dry yeast and brown sugar. Very nice.

JAXSON (535) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Bottle as a gift from Joost. Medium chestnut brown, nice white head. A bit of brown sugar, nice malts, some Christmas kind of spices. Cloves come to mind. Kind of Chimay Blue-like, nothing crazy but understated and well done.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Bottle, graciously gifted to me by the folks at De Heeren Van Liedekercke. Pours a hazy caramel brown hue with a tall column of frothy tan foam. The aroma shows a nice brown sugar and caramel malt base, with hints of root beer, vanilla, and perhaps a dash of earthy chicory spice. Flavors follow suit, deliciously sweet with root beer-like caramel sugars, hints of dates, and figs, with notes of balancing cocoa roast and a finishing spice profile of orange zest and earth. The palate is substantial and creamy, showing smooth up front and intensifying with fizz on the finish. This brew would be a great accompaniment to a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Tasty, tasty stuff.
