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.

A very nice and easy drinking Belgian. This would be a great intro to Belgian beers for novice drinkers. Dark amber pour with a foam head, decent lacing. Flavours of toffee, brown sugar, yeast, spices, malts, etc with a mild bitterness at the end of the palate.

De couleur noire avec un léger reflets rubis la mousse est assez tenace et est de couleur blanc cassé Au nez Elle va être herbacée avec des notes de chocolat noir. En bouche on va sentir des saveurs de noix noisettes chocolat noirElle va être aussi légèrement aigre . Elle est aussi assez gazeuse Je l'ai aussi fait vieillir pendant deux ans:au niveau de l'aspect la seule différence est que la mousse tient un peu Embouches par contre on va sentir des note aigre ,Porto ,cacao, xérès est légèrement boisé Embouche on va sentir des saveurs de chocolat fruits secs .Elle va se trouver beaucoup moins allègre est beaucoup plus sucré que la version non vieilli . En fait elle se bonifie complètement avec l'âge !!!

Bottle. Poured dark, reddish brown; huge tan head and tons of lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite fruity, some malts and some hints of alcohol. Taste is consistent, fruity (dark fruits), some malts, brown sugar and some yeast flavors. Very good beer, easy to drink and certainly quite enjoyable.
