JorisPPattyn (8228) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2014
Dark rusty-brown head, rather stable over deep-brown opaque beer. Chocolate immediately striking from the glass, bit of parsley. Caramel, toffee, roasted notes; Generally sweet nose with a roasted-woody touch. Bitter, very roasted-burnt, as meatparticles too long in the frying pan and cooled down. Scorched dark chocolate. Warming up, the harsh burnt bitterness is toned down,, letting some restsugars peeping through, but the damage is done for my, flavourwise. Well-bodied, without being really viscous/thick. Faint alcohol impression, well-hidden, soft to medium carbonation. Long lasting sweetish burnt aftertaste. Not my kind of sin, obviously.

maley1 (869) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
Dark brown pour with small beige head. Amazing aroma of ripe fruits, bready, yeast, caramel. Taste of ripe fruits, plums, figs, raisins, blackberry caramel, toffee, molasses, bready, yeast. Lots going on in this one. Lower carbonation, full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. This is one delicious beer! Only thing wrong is it is slightly too sweet or it would have even scored higher in my books. Absolutely brilliant beer!!

joeneugs (3817) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 13, 2013
On tap at The Olde Depot in Oakland. It pours a very dark brown/black color with a khaki head. The aroma is super fruity with plums, fig, blackberries and hard fruit candy. The flavor is divine with ultra ripe dark fruit, dates, fig, plum, blackberries, rich bread, and hard candy. Very sweet and full bodied, but with a great bready malt background that lends a lot of substance. Thick but not syrupy. Sweet yet substantial… this is the beer I imagine the monks drinking while fasting. So good! This reestablishes my faith in Belgian beers. More please.

77ships (4775) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2013
33 cl. bottle split by 3 @ ’t Rusteel. Ruby black with a tanned head. Nose is big on sweet spices but not as heavy as the two others I tried from the series, red grapes, sugar & thick liquorish. Taste is sweet cocoa, blue + blackberries, chocolate, slight bitter chocolate, lots of berries & liquorish with some bitter herbs in the back, thick malts & solid body. Pretty interesting & solid brew.
