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.

I think the alcohol shows up way too much in this beer. Not enough flavour or even body for such a high ABV beer. A bit too sweet for me.

33CL bottle: Pours a hazy brown-ruby color with a nice light brown head. Sweet sugary aroma, tastes sweet and of light fruits. The sweetness gets to be a bit much as the glass goes on. Like all the other beers these guys make, I won’t be having this one again.

Brown with big head. Liquorice and fruits in the aroma. Much liquorice in the flavour. The finish is slightly thin and alcoholic with some sourness.

Jfishback13 (275) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Well, the bottle is cool as all hell. I’ll certainly give it that... a nice painted bottle. Other than that, it’s a sweet, but not simple Belgian. A bit too sweet for my liking.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2004
Dark brown beer with red shine and fluffy ivory colored head. Aroma’s of expresso coffee, dried fruits, chesnuts, and a little hint of fresh fennel. Round malty taste with again coffee hints and touches of dried fruits that ends with a and herbal accents. Afthertaste ends with a sweet-bitterness of burned malts.
