Bottle from Drinkshop. Very clean and tasty brew. Dark brown colour. Overfoamed a bit at higher temperature but nothing tragic. Sweet but not out of balance. Full malty flavour with notes of caramel, toffee, honey, biscuity. Very good. Light dried fruits. Easy drinking with alcohol hidden well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, 25cL. @bar La Tireuse, Toulouse. Old memories there during my veterinary studies in "La Ville Rose". A beautiful red brown clear sparkling beer ; medium off-white head ; medium retention. Caramel, roast, herbs, sugar. Medium sweet, sugary, light to medium dry bitter. Just a little windy. Medium body, thin oily, average carbonation, short sweet herbal toffee finish. Overall, Ok amber belgian ale ; hoppy aroma, bitterness drown in heavy sweetness. I will taste the bottle version.

Bottle at home. Aroma of dark malt, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, brown sugar, some roasted notes, some chocolate. Flavour is sweet with a light bitterness in the finish. Body is medium. Rich and sweet, pretty enjoyable. More or less seems to be a stronger version of the Dubbel, which I had before this one.
