a sim rate:
Licquoricey and subte fruit aroma. The dark reddish appearance is alluring and similar to Westvleteren 12. Licquorice flavour becomes even more apparent in the aftertaste. Tasty and quite fruity for a brune and though it’s quite high in alcohol, it doesn’t knock you out!

Plums and apricots in the nose with a bit of roasted toffee. Caramelized candy sugars and dark fruits on the palate with a clean mouthfeel. Vanilla flavors come in more prominently as it warms with a bit of nuts and bread. Very nice clean malty finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Not much to look at, a muddy brown in color and clarity, but the tan head is nice. For a while. Nice sweet malt aroma with juicy fruits, cherries and plums. The alcohol is barely detectable in the malty taste, but the fruits come through along with some vanilla and sweet spices. The finish is dry and clean. Nice dubbel.

Beautiful portwine ruby (after adding all extra yeast, almost brown), big brown fluffy head, lace. Aroma has plums, hops, alcohol and hints of rye bread mixed with sugar. Medium-bodied. Tasty, nutty palate. Figs and plums. In the middle alcohol carries a bit harder and metallic flavor, finishing to oaky notes. Dry aftertaste. Excellent dubbel.

I sampled all three Bon Secours beers over te Christmas holiday, and they all impressed me greatly. This one pours dark brown with a malt, toffee, fruity, aroma. Malty, extremely fruity taste, with a firm palate. Tons of fruit, and silky smooth. Get ya some.
