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.

Deep fruits, yeast, oats and biscuit malts on the nose. Dark amber/brown with a massive foam. Big alcohol presence with pleasant caramel, oat, barley and fresh hop notes that dance around the palate. Big complexity with some hidden undertones of herbs, belgian candi syrup, roasted molasses and mocha. Overall, this is really strong, full-bodied, and complex. I’d give this an A+ rating.

Malty, strong and a really nice dark brown color. Fruity yet gentle. Something special!

Bottle from Carrefour, Evere, Brussels, Belgium. Dark brown red. Feels bitter and sour. Frankly not one of the best Be.gian Strong Ale (but Delirium Tremens still one of my favorite)

King_Alex_II (106) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2014
5+ years old. Has an old taste, that is hard to describe. The taste is partly sour with a sufficient heavy malt body with a chocolately aftertaste. The sourness fit surprisingly well.

SinH4 (251) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Best before February 2012. Let’s see how well this one aged. Brown-amber color with medium beige head. Dry fruits, chocolate, definitely old. Taste is juicy-sirupy, tart, heavy and with the typical vintage note. Thick texture, lots of carbonation. Complex, quite good. Very different than I have the normal one in my head. Aged quite fine.

GuideDogSaint (481) - Xiamen, CHINA - DEC 7, 2014
330ml bottle from BePLUS, Xiamen. Pours dark ruby red with a thin off white head. Aroma of berries and a little chocolate malt. Sweet finish. A little metallic. Doesn’t quite work for me.

- Alcoholpercentage van 8,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
