Dark brown with huge white head. Plums, yeast, spices. Heavy sweetness and medium bitterness. Very strong and complex with lots of warming properties.

Bottle. Dark black quad looking pour. Nice frothy head, that hovers just above the surface. Aroma is raisins, spices, brown sugar, and sweet malts. Taste, wow, sweet, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel, lots of spices, some wine like undertones, finishes semi dry. Very nice Belgian ale!

1973 bottle...Thanks Jef! Pours a clear amber color with a hint of carbonation. The smell is big caramel, rich fruit, cherries, mederia notes. The taste is on par with the nose... some oxidation. Medium body without much carbonation which is to be expected. A nice treat!

33cl served in a Gouden Carolus glass. Pours a dark brown almost treacly colour with an impressive white head. Aroma is typical Belgian Abbey beer turned up to 11. Hugely rich taste bursting with juicy fruits along with dried front and very malt dominated. Not actually inferior in any way to the Van Der Kaizer Blauw. Wonderful.

beautiful mahogany color, smallish beige head. Dades, spices, raisins, something vegetal, and a bit of candy. Taste is sweet, with herbal bitter. Medium bodied, average carbonation, slick texture and quite boozy. Nice beer, but there’s better.

Bottle, nice head, very nice deep red colour.
Taste is really original to me, malt, bitter and toffee finish, but there is this red fruit like taste, indeed some similarity to wine.
A very interesting beeer, I got this one through a christmas package with 4 different beers from this brewery. I will certainly look out to buy more of this particular brew.
