Wow now this is a nice dark stong Belgian ale. Chocolate, raisin, banana, plum and vanilla notes. Taste is impressive as well, just the right amount of sweetness thrown in. Very tasty.

Bottle at Eulogy. Very dark brown/black pour with a solid showing of foamy lace. Delicate dark brown fruit. Rehydrated prunes and raisins. Molasses candies. Peat. Burnt caramels. Vanilla smoke. Root beer. Pleasant aroma. Thick flavors though the body reads a bit watery. Nice dark sugary beer that still finishes mostly dry.

Bardzo ładny, brunatny kolor, wysoka piana. Mocno słodowe, alkohol ładnie wyeksponowany. Jednak nie moja bajka. Zbyt słodkie jak na mój gust.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle, served in Trappist glass. Pours brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, fruits, licorice and toasty notes. The flavour is like eating cake, but that doesn’t mean it is too sweet. Apparently there’s no bitterness, but that’s not a problem to still find this brew balanced. Medium body, good carbonation. Something everyone can enjoy drinking.

One of those beers that you can just sit and nurse because it is just so good to drink. Heavier and with more malt than expected (should have looked a little harder at the label)
