Pour is dark brown with some red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is huge brown sugar, candied sugar, hazelnut, and a pinch of Belgian yeast. Flavor is quite cloying, but for some reason it works (maybe because of the name?). Heavy brown sugar, some dried fruit, and a finish of yeast and alcohol. Medium bodied.

Draught. Man I don’t even know what to say about this. Poured dark, raisin rum aroma, same taste with molasses etc. Good but maybe too syrupy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled @ home. Clear reddish brown color, short head. Aroma of rich sugar, some ripe fruit, caramel malts, raisin. Only slight spicy from the yeast. Taste is quite sweet, bit dry, slight nutty. The belgian yeast is obvious, but not overwhelming and lets the sugary notes shine, the way they probably intended to be. Carbonation is quite low for a belgian style, which is perfect for me, coz usually they blow up in your stomach. Despite the sticky tooth, reasonably easy drinkable that way. Im not a fan of pretty sweet beers, but Im enjoying this one!

Botte 50 cl. Courtesy of Meilby. Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel, overripe fruit and Belgian yeast. Solid body, carbonation is a little low, brown sugars, overripe plummy fruit and a subtle yeastiness. Warming alcohol in the finish. Very pleasant Belgian style ale - almost a mini-Quad. 131011

The aroma has a lot of sweet malts with raisin and caramel. Dark red-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, has sugar, caramel and raisin. Bit one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and OleR. Pours a near clear nutty-brown body with a small sidesticking bubbly head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel and heavy ripe banana. Also some hints of pure alcohol. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a sticky and syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor-wise this is really sweet with enormous amounts of banana - a bit to much perhaps? -, some plums and almost no bitterness. Like drinking fermented liquid banana-concentrate topped with caramel, brown sugar and ripe strawberries. Nice warming aftertaste. All that being said, it was not any bad flavors but one glass is enough..
