4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown and clear beer with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of tootsie roll and roasted coffee. Starts off with a coffee/chocolate/tootsie roll flavor. Acidity and sweetness follows transitioning into a dry finish with lingering roast coffee. Medium-full body with low carbonation and a lingering alcohol heat.
Overall: I’m not a huge fan of coffee beers, but this one is exceptionally balanced and a great flavored winter sipping beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, very thin tan lacing. Very pleasing aroma of dark fruits, chocolate, and toffee. Very sweet taste, chocolate flavor comes through quite prominently. Medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation but not over-carbonated. Finishes with a nice warming sensation, and tootsie roll flavor as advertised. Very enjoyable and unique Belgian strong ale.

This is great stuff. I had it on the Kerst- en Winterbierenfestival at De Kleine Deugniet (Alkmaar, NL) and it was the revelation of that festival. Coffee, caramel, chocolate. "Haagse Hopjes", for the Dutch readers. Perfect beer for winter evenings.

Bottle of 75cl, in a Kasteel glass; from the fridge.
Good aroma and taste of coffee, chocolate and tofee, but it’s so fake... You know, like candies... But appart of that, it’s a great beer, nice deep brown colour, hot palate.
She’s a good one if you like coffee/candy beer, but too sweet for me...
Try it !
