Bebum (688) - - APR 10, 2016
Hazy copper color, tall tan head. Intense rusty nose. Full body, bright mouthfeel, moderate but adequately strong flavor, heat and carbonation, great balance, lingering palate with a delucious finish. Moderately sweet, enough bitterness and acidity to reach a perfect balance. Roasty, coffee, malty, yeasty, creme brulé, earthy. Considering that the sample I tasted was 4 years beyond its Drink By date, its an exceptional beer. Very easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pitch992 (84) - SLOVENIA - APR 2, 2016
Aroma: caramel, toast, gentle roasty, toffee, dough, very gentle herbs, some esters (surprising), raisins. Interesting, well balanced. brown, hazy, white foam, good retention. light sweetness, lightly bitter, raisins, roast, caramel, toffee, again some esters. Well balanced, but expected more depth. medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, short sweetish finish. Overall nicely balanced and quite pleasant, but could use a little less sweetness and more depth.

Samuel214 (349) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Gravöl med kusin Mattias. Mörkbrun med beiget skum. Lite smörig popcorn-doft som känns typiskt för belgisk klosteröl. Torr, lätt söt och något brända toner. Känns rätt medioker.
