No lacing, slightly syrupy and fruity body. Big fig, clove and raisiny sweetness and spice. The alcohol is masked very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (3509) - Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/2016. Pours hazy/cloudy dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, cherry, red grape, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, pepper, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, red grape, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, pepper, clove, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, cherry, red grape, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, pepper, clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian strong dark ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

mutz (715) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2015
Donkerbruin van kleur, ruikt een beetje melig zoetrottig. Smaakt veel te zoet, beetje metalig, weeïg,wat bitterzuur. Geen diepte, eigenlijk een beetje bagger.

libertine (287) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2015
pours a cloudy brown with a lot of sediment floating. Thin white head. Aroma is sweet and boozy. Notes of raisins, plum and dark cherries. Flavor is also sweet and boozy. Raisins, plums, and a slight tartness. alcohol is very present. Full bodied. low/medium carbonation. slick mouth feel finishes dry and the alcohol becomes a little more intense. This is definitely a sipper but I am drinking it real fast. Damn good quad. \

KoNrRiI (793) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
0.33 bottle. Dark brown color with a crimson tinge and a small, off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, port wine, some flowers, and delicate malts with yeasts. Taste is sour-sweet; both sweetness and sourness take their point of origin in fruits. Generally the beer is rather estery, does not contain that much malts, caramel, and sugars but neither is it dry. Full body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is quite vinous as well although not what one would call long. Overall a very nice brew, does a great job at hiding its alcohol content and is certainly one of those session beers which one could enjoy while reading a book by a fireplace.
