Pours a nice amber with a good one finger head. The taste is fruity with some carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Overall pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice pour .... leaving a deep cherry colored clear brew topped by a very shortlasting off white head. Only a little lacing suprisingly. Smell is big Belgian yeast .... sugar and fruit. Booze soaked cherries, berries and peaches. No hops to speak of. Flavor is off the charts, I am not saying it is hugely complex, but it leaves nothing to hide. Creamy carbonation.... I like alot. Quite a bit of alcohol but ties perfectly to the fruity cherry overtones and the Yeasty spiciness.

Night_Cap (81) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a hazy copper. Head is large, foamy, off white and lasts well in the glass. Aroma is spicy with strong notes of fresh coriander, pepper, brown bread, barley, Belgian candy sugar, dried currants, dark plums, dried apples (light) and hints of gingerbread men. Flavour is spicy with a light bitterness, strong notes of brown bread, dark grapes, dried currants, dried apple, coriander seeds and a peppery finish. Full bodied with lively carbonation an oily texture and a decent length, dry finish.

mice (781) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Kirkas, rusehtavanpunainen olut runsaalla höttöisellä ja melko pitkäkestoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu marjainen ja maltainen. Hieman alkoholinen aavistuksen mausteinen. Maku maltainen, marjainen ja jouluisan mausteinen sekä hieman alkoholinen. Melko täyteläinen ja runsashiilihappoinen suutuntuma. Hieno ja jouluinen, mutta aavistuksen yksipuolinen laadukas belgiale jouluun.

heavy (2736) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 14, 2016
Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a hazy golden body with a frothy, short living although a big head. Sweetish aroma, fruity, a bit roasted malty and yeasty, touched with alcohol. Flavor was bitter, caramel, fruity and light vanilla spiced. Overcarbonated palate on medium to full body. Long finish, lightly bitter alcholic. Quite simple and unrefined, expected more, although it was okay anyway. Just that.

Sparf (226) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2016
Skummar kraftigt redan vid öppning. Färgen är mörk bärnsten och skummet halverar snabbt och lämnar en mycket tunn hinna. Doftar sött av torkad, mörk frukt. Därtill lime och lätta aromer av jäst och kryddor. Halvt vinös och där alkoholen känns en aning. Ölen har en bred men inte så kraftig smakpalett där fruktiga bärtoner harmonierar med karamellsötma. Som en vinös kombination av en dubbel- och trippeltrappist. Kroppen är bara halvfyllig och ölen skummar för mycket i munnen för min smak. Alkoholen känns utan att störa. Torr avslutning med kort beska och därefter en lång, behaglig eftersmak.

Fules (725) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2016
Hosszan tartó nagy hab, finom fűszeres, komlós illat, erős karamelles beütéssel. Íze erősen komlós, karamelles, határozott gyümölcsös érzettel. Az alkoholt igencsak érezni, utóíze enyhén kesernyés, citrusos, és hosszan megmarad. Testes sör.

Westkyoto77 (620) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle to Belgian glass. Rich deep brown, creamy head. Heady aromas of caramel, spice. Boozy, but not over-rich. Supple and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Espuma beige que se va disipando pero permanece como una fina capa, color marrón achocolatado y opaco, el aroma en nariz es ligero, sabor potente con regusto donde se aprecian sus 10º
