3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cherry wood brown with huge 2 finger lite tan head. Sticky lacing lingers for a long time. A little cloudy from a crappy pour.
Initial aroma reminds me a very watered down Supplication. Next is dry slightly floral and pungent ... Nuttiness fades to an almost dry amaretto aroma. Pepper low coriander and finishes with an unexpected Belgian yeast spiceness and maybe a little bit of tartness. Very unique and flowing flavors .... spices and fruit meld to yeast fruitiness ending with a dry tart finish.

Bottle at Poechenellekelder. Rich plum character with a jam feel, some porto wine quality, great finish. Definitely a classic with a dangerously hidden abv.

Color tonaca di frate, con ampia schiuma beige compatta e di buona persistenza. Al naso il malto risalta insieme alle spezie, note di frutta secca e dark fruits. Eccellente la bevuta, piena, dolce con una bella speziatura. Alcol che sostiene la bevuta fino alla fine alla perfezione. Buona anche una leggera amarezza finale. Carbonazione medio alta. Una grande strong ale.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. It’s been quite some time since I last had it. Nose is yeast, cherry, dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, plums, fig, spice, bread. Taste is dark chocolate, cherry, hint of cola, caramel, dark fruits, vinous, cinamon, dry licorice, slight sour note, a dry herbal hop note in the finish with heavy spices. Mouthfeel is rich.
An outstanding big Belgian, which pulls off the trick of being full bodied, full flavoured, but not overly sweet. The hints of sour with a the dry finish lift the beer from great to outstanding.
