COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours very lively from the bottle. Dark brown with a pillowy head. Roasted beans, some coffee, a hint of red fruits in the distance. Towards the end some alcohol. Medium finish with caramel, moccha, coffee beans, alcohol. Less body than a Rochefort or St-Bernardus, but very enjoyable nontheless.

AbbeyRoade (282) - Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2014
Sweet yeasty aroma. Boozy flavor and aroma. Not bad but not great either. I wish the alcohol didn’t dominate the flavor, but then again it is a Belgian strong ale..

Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of earth and fruit. The palate is a bit thin, but nicely carbonated. Tastes sweet with a bit of a sour finish. Overall, a good dark Belgium, although the viscosity leaves me wanting.

High carbonation gives it an interesting mouthfeel. Taste and aroma is somewhat skunky.
