Naka (717) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Pours brown with a creamy off-white. Deep molassas sweet and caramel. Flavor is a deep sweet almost burnt bitterness with some dark fruit flavor. Maybe currant or prune? Not a huge mouthfeel, but pretty nice. Tasty.

alteregoo (357) - POLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Pana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, po kilku minutach opada do nieregularnej pierzynki. Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, opalizująca, piwo ładnie pracuje w szkle. Zapach dość słodki - charakterystyczny belgijski zapach kandyzowanych owoców, miodu spadziowego, syropu klonowego i suszonych gruszek oraz przypraw korzennych i głogu. Jest też jakaś niepokojąca nuta orientalnej mieszanki ziół... W smaku dość słodkie i pikantne, estry i fenole oczywiście grają tu główne skrzypce podobnie jak w aromacie, suszona gruszka, figi i daktyle połączone z suszoną brzoskwinią, czerwonym i czarnym pieprzem, imbirem oraz sianem. Goryczka piołunowo-pestkowa, nieduża ale długa, podtrzymywana przez likierowy alkohol, niedrażniący, aczkolwiek podbijający pikantność w afterteasie. Wbrew pozorom piwo nie jest lepkie ani gęste, przeciwnie - sprawia wrażenie lekkiego, gładkiego, a zarazem bogatego. Średnio nagazowane. Ciekawe piwo - szeroko rozumiane Belgian Strong Ale, nieco przypominające Dubbla i piwa świąteczne. Słodkie i jednocześnie dość lekkie w odbiorze.

SamTheBarrel (651) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
750ml brown paper wrapped bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy dark copper colored with a medium sized frothy beige head, that reduced quickly. Aroma of pears, brown sugar and a hint of banana. Flavor of brown sugar, raisins, caramel, prunes, spices and bread. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Glazen Toren Cuvée Angélique is tasty, complex flavour but a little too sweet.

czar (5843) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
pours hazy dark golden with a bubbly white head, reviving and leaving some lacing. nutty earthy caramel, sweetish golden raisins, some earthy coffee grinds, yeasty-plenty - very fruity with some red miscellaneous fruitiness but also peaches in their syrup, including that touch of sweetness backed by leafy-earthy bitter hops. almost foamy carbonation, medium body; slightly harsh caramel-earthy-leafy finish. tad scattered but some a nice fruity caramel feature.

Erasmus_ro (1924) - Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Large bottle. Starts to push out as is opened. Pours a dirty, hazy amber with a fairly large, ugly, broken dark beige head. Aroma is berries, caramel, ripe fruits, yeast, apricot. Taste is dark ripe fruits, quite dry, light berries, dries up on finish. Complex. Could be fuller.

Bottle (750 ml). Split 2-ways.

Appearance: Hazy dark amber with a medium off-white head, low retention and little lacing.

Aroma: Toffee forward with strong earthy notes, moderate spiciness, Belgian yeast and light to moderate fruitiness.

Taste: Medium sweetness with toffee, brown sugar, earthy presence, moderate spiciness, moderate fruitiness and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Toffee finish with light warmth from the spices and the alcohol. Sticky toffee.

Overall: Tasty Belgian Strong Ale with a decent balance despite the sweetness. It packs a lot of flavors. Ok drinkability.
