JorisPPattyn (9473) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2011
Draught Deep chestnut colour under an ultra-dense coffeecream head. Vinous, liqueurish nose, and very sticky-smelling caramel, like molten cassonade sugar. Fruity, yet hoppy-bitterish main taste; but the caramel lurks at the horizon. Alcohol remains formidably hidden in the mouth, beer seems only medium bodied, but very slick. Talk about a beer hiding its strength.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2010
