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.

Espuma beige tirando a marrón claro muy permanente, color marrón oscuro muy opaco, aroma dulzón en nariz, sabor potente que pasa de matices dulces al principio tornandose en notas amargas que terminan en un regusto muy agradable

En något medioker öl, men som har en god smak. Avslutningen är intressant och jag kan definitivt tänka mig att dricka den igen.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Syfher (269) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. We’re in front of a better beer than his sister (Delirium Tremens). Good colour and nice aroma of yeast and dark-brown sugar. The taste is sweet, with an aftertaste of yeast. Try it.

jamesie1857 (1865) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
330ml bottle at De Oude Jan, Delft - Clear, reddish brown body with a huge beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, overripe fruit, yeast, coriander and alcohol. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, caramel and roasted malts, yeast, spice, ending with a dry, slightly tart, warming alcohol finish. Winter warmer in the rain.

Lilja (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2016
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, belgisk jäst, karamell, torkad frukt, örter, plommon, vita russin och aprikosmarmelad. Rund och len, stor sötma, en aning mycket alkohol som slår igenom, fin beska.

Matwill (86) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
En fût au Vestiaire. Ale foncée peu mousseuse, qui nous indique via ses flaveurs son origine belge, en plus d’insister sur le côté sucré de la bière. Au goût, ça reste bien balancé, le sucré ne prenant pas toute la place. Ça en fait une bière savoureuse.
