3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
30 cL bottle, thanks to Grovlam. Pours amber with a lacing light brown head. Herbal and berry fruity aroma, slight alcohol note. Sweet and alcohol flavour, slight herbal too. Ends slight malty, alcohol warming. Slight acidic to citric fruityness. Wins something for every sip but is still slightly too alcoholic for my liking.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Dark ruby brown with a small, but lasting off-white head. Dried fruits and port in a quite oxidized aroma. Dry and fruity flavour with some alcohol.
1993 bottle: More or less the same. Some oxidation, lots of desert wine notes, and a slightly tart fruity finish. Well done!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Odense Tasting: Dark amber with creamy brown head & good lacings. Sweet aroma of dark fruits & sugar. Reminds me of la trappe quadrupel. Roasted malts. Dark complex flavour - sweet dried fruits. Alchohol warmth. Smooth, sticky & oily. Great!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ ChristianScheffel tasting. [thank you BeerBiker]
Now this was (surprisingly) nice! Pours is deep brown, rather muddy. Medium head that disappears quickly. Aroma is very complex and very ’Belgian’. Sugar, dried fruits (mostly raisins), some barn, rye bread. Nice creamy palate. Flavour is nice and sweet as well - very well balanced with som viniousness mixed in the roasted, chocolate and fruityness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Paid 93 eurocents for a single in a supermarket, fair enough! Strong and heady nose reminiscent of stronger beers from the Leffe brand. Its mellow alcohol and fair clovey, bready, soft yeastiness all feel Belgian enough, not too far from some of the least interesting Unibroue actually. Gentle orange tea flavours. Smooth medium body. Yeast focus all throughout. A competent if undistinguished strong ale: floral, citrusy and exotic (apricot, pineapple) all the while warming its drinker who feels satisfied for as far as price vs. quality goes.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Large creamy beige head that really lasted. Good display of lacework. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of bread, grain, hay, caramel, roasted malt, dried fruit and some brown sugar. Full bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes. Fruity sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby-red colour, almost no head. Lots of alcohol in the aroma, together with some fruits and caramel. Flavour is of alcohol, caramel, and dark fruits. Quite drinkable, despite the 10% ABV.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, vanilla-fruity, cakey aroma with some bourbon notes. Good label and cap. Medium dark brown, fluffy head which didn’t pile up too tall. Generally a nice balance, but boozy and leaning towards alcohol bitterness. A few musky undertones. Medium-heavy body, and the finish floundered a bit giving an overbrewed and pasty impression over a syrupy aftertaste..
