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.

kingaugusta (17) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours medium brown with a big light brown head that lingers. Nose is brown sugar, a touch of hops, caramel, and a little alcohol. The flavor opens up these same notes and adds a bit of yeast. Backside is dry. Not particularly exceptional as per the style but a very solid Belgian Strong and a great slow-drinking beer overall.

Aunque no esta mala, no se acerca ni de lejos a la delirium tremens. Demasiado flojita.

chinchill (2721) - South Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2015
About 10 oz serving in a snifter (from notes). Appearance: Nearly clear dark red mahogany; thin tan head; good lacing. Smell: malt; dark fruits; a little yeasty Taste: Fruity and creamy; in combination, more so than any beer I can remember. A tad spicy. Chocolate? Slight sourness in finish, especially after warming. M - smooth and very creamy; Medium-body. Excellent complexity and dynamic variation in flavor from start to aftertaste.

Old rating. Dark red brown. Candy sugar, plums, toffee, giant sweetness and heavy mouthful. Sipper, but nice complex taste.
