jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2014
2007 bottle. Pours a hazy brown with minimal head or lacing. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruits, caramel sweetness. Taste is a big sweet malt bomb, caramel and chocolate, barely any yeast esters remain. Warmth in your throat and all the way down to your belly, big and sweet, but nice.

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
350 mL bottle. Dark - looks like a dubel. lovely aroma - lots of dates. Reminiscent of Abbaye des Rocs, but more one dimensional. The flavour is good, but not as appealing as the aroma. There is an interesting note of spice on the top of the mouth at the end. Alcohol is very (too?) well hidden. Nice beer.

Abijen (1469) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a dark orange beer with a good tan head. Smells sweet, fruity, malts and herbs. Tastes licorice, malts, dried fruits. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

fkoolen (281) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
Deep dark brown, big beige head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is nicely bitter and spicy, on a roasted and sweet malty bed. High alcohol grade is well disguised. Medium carbonation, medium body.

RW80 (600) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
330 ml bottle nicely printed , Appearance: deep red brown with quite clear body, with a 3 fingers sized head, with low retention and leaving light lacing on the glass Aroma of caramel,, fruit cake, syrup, light nuts. Taste is sweet, (allthough slightly less as the aroma.), taste palate follows the sweet aroma and there is some spicyness trying to get through. In the finish there is luckilly some bitternesh, but also a bit harshboozyness (Not burning alcohol), but the alcohol boosts the sweetness too much. Above average syrupy bodr, good carbonation, sticky palate. Too sweet and sugary for me I had a had time finishing this.

Erzengel (2604) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2014
Sehr schön dunkel-braun und leicht rötlich-trüb mit beigem Schaum. Der Geruch ist leicht süßlich alkoholisch-schwer. Im Antrunk ist das Bier sehr schön mild-vollmundig. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine weiche und angenehme Süße hinzu, die sich aber doch relativ stark im Hintergrund hält. In den Vordergrund dringt eine sehr interessante Note von schönem dunklen Malz mit einem angenehm lakritzig-verbrannten Ton, aber auch was blumiges – meine erste Assoziation sind Crysanthemen. Auf jeden Fall Blumen. Vor allem im Nachgeschmack kommt diese Blumen-Note noch einmal deutlich zum Vorschein und hält sich mit der verbrannten Lakritze lange auf der Zunge. Eine Herbe ist nur ganz leicht in Ansätzen zum Ende hin spürbar, die 9,5% merkt man kaum, auf jeden Fall fällt keine alkoholische Note auf. Insgesamt ist das Bier schwer und ein Bisschen dickflüssig wirkend. Sehr interessante Kombination von Aromen, sehr mild und nicht zu süß.
→ Gefällt mir sehr gut! 14+12+13+14

Ambrée foncée opaque, effervescence moyenne-faible, col beige moyen nuageux et aérien. Malts torréfiés, caramel, maitrank léger, amertume un rien réglissée, on sent bien la chaleur de l’alcool.

This is in my Top 5 of all time..Tip buy a case and let it age for a year... Taste is amazing. You know it is ready to drink when syrup is coming out at the end. Requires patience though.
