Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

É uma boa cerveja belga, mas fica devendo para as trapistas tradicionais. Paladar acodicado um pouco acima da média, aftertaste saboroso e duradouro.

This is pretty good. Lots of carbonation. It bites fruity. Not as well rounded as I would have hoped. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slight aftertaste of smoked meats. Really good tho. Not too fullbodied, allowing for large sips. Smells like gym socks.

Butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. Ladna piana, kremowa, nie za szybko redukujaca sie do cienkiej warstewki. Ciemno wisniowo-czarne, przejrzyste. Aromaty estrowych, ciemnych owocow, rodzynek, kandyzowanych fig, przyprawowosci, karmelu, w tle troche czekolady, zwlaszcza po ogrzaniu. W smaku slodkawo, karmelowo, owocowo, przyprawowo, w posmakach czuc bardzo mocno kolendre - zabijalo mi to duza czesc przyjemnosci z picia. Po ogrzaniu silnym przyprawowosc zanikala, wiecej bylo karmelowo-owocowej nuty. Mile w ustach. Gdyby nie te zbyt zagluszajace inne posmaki i aromaty nuty kolendrowe, byloby wyrazniej fajniej, a tak, jak dla mnie, nie do powtarzania. NIemniej... zakladam, ze dla wiekszosci osob ktorym ta konkretna przyprawa nie wadzi to piwo musi byc naprawde dobre.

On tap at Frites, Wanchai, Hong Kong. Pours dark, red-brown with a single finger off white head. Aroma is sweet, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, mocha, chocolate. Taste of initial dark fruits with some caramel from the malts, lightly syrupy, with almost christmas fruity cake, lemon, cherry, some zestiness too. A Fantastic beer!

Pours a nice dark brown/amber with plenty of head. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, with some apple, pear and spices. Flavor has dark fruits, loads of dark fruits. Raisin, prune. Spicy. It's also kinda alcoholic and boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
