Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée foncée, mousse abondante, tenue moyenne. Arômes de pruneaux et fruits secs, alcool assez prononcé qui pique un peu. Carbonnation un peu faible. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

rikstar (655) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2014
0,33l beugel bij de slijterij in Opmeer vandaan. Kleur van het bier houdt het midden tussen Amber en robijnrood met een mooie fijne schuimkraag. Aangenaam aroma met chocolade, donker volkoren brood, gist en ook gedroogd fruit. Smaak is ook mooi complex begint vol zoet daarna een zuurtje als appelstroop met een mooie afdronk met gistbitter, hop en alcoholwarmte. Zeer aangenaam en complex bier, blij verrast!

Okay beer. Looks copper dark. No special mouthfeel. Tastes explodes at the aftertaste with hints of huney, sour, spice and alcohol.

Renobob (564) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2013
Une belle découverte au Cambrinus de Bruges. Bière typiquement belge, bien équilibrée, tout ce qu'on aime.

CapFlu (4461) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
33cl bottle. Courtesy of Olivier. Overflowing frothy white head atop a deep brown colour. Malted fig aroma with a creamed, salted, red wine cask flavour. Mild palate, hides the alcohol well.

MarcoDL (1985) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Ordinary Belgian blond beer. Bit fruity, bit hoppy and quite sweet. Nice beer, but a little high on the CO2.

cmc619 (386) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
From 33cl cage & cork into Duvel glass. Second of "The Old Lawyer" beers sampled (apparently brewed by De Proef). Dark brown, aroma like a dubbel (dark fruit and grains). Palate stays pretty light and almost creamy, which is great. Booze just hits in the back of the throat - definitely plays under its ABV. Maybe still a bit too sticky/palate-heavy, but overall a pretty nice beer.
