Apr. 29, 2014. Bottle from LCBO. Very dark reddish brown. Off-white head. Toffee and raisins and a very sweet nose. Bit too sweet for my taste, but still quite nice.

Drank with Thomas 14/5/2014. Nice beer. Nice and sweet. Salmiac-like but not too strong. Tastes really grabs you. Like this beer.

330ml bottle from the lcbo. A sweet dark Belgian ale. Very simple and typical of the style. I used to love beers like this but to be honest I had a tough time finishing this. Too sweet.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl, flaske, 11,0 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 10. maj 2014.
Mahogni- med brune nuancer-farvet Strong Belgian Ale med minimal offwhite skumtop, ca. 5 mm.
Tydelig duft af frugt og hedvin. Figen, sveske, blomme, rosin. Desuden belgisk gær. Nærmest noget engelsk plumcake. Lidt portvin.
Meget rig smag, men også meget sød. Bevares, der er også bitterhed, men balancen er skæv.
Dog kan øllet udmærket bruges som erstatning for dessertvinen, da vi nærmest er ovre hedvinsgenren, sødmemæssigt.
Kulsyreindholdet er fint afstemt med øltypen.
Fin øl, men for sød IMO.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle, home. Pours dark, almost black, but it’s clear with a tan head. The aroma of caramel, brown sugar, some fruits and toasted malts makes a sweet, full taste, nicely carbonated with a creamy texture.
One of my favourite beers on a sunny day in the autumn.

2014/05/04 - Pours an opaque dark brown-cola colour with a thin, creamy, khaki head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is dark fruits, brown sugar and caramel malts. Taste is caramel, brown sugar, molasses and alcohol. Sweet from beginning to end. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with low, smooth carbonation and a sweet, warming, mildly boozy finish. Much too sweet for my taste...and I typically don't mind sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear reddish/brown in colour with a tan head that doesn’t last very long. Typical belgian strong aroma, vanilla, banana, dark fruit and a hint of brown sugar. On the palate it is sweet with a medium body and a fairly fast fruity finish. Sports flavours of caramel and vanilla with a boozy heat and fruity esters. Decent stuff but i’m not blown away as I thought I would be.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear dark reddish brown with a tiny tan head that is gone very quickly. Nose is toffee and vanilla with light yeast, banana and dark fruit. Very sweet molasses and dried fruit which barely manages to hide the alcohol. Heavy slick mouth with soft carbonation. Definitely needs to be savoured slowly.

11%, man those Belgians love their sugar. And I’m all right with that. Pours black, but clear (no lees on this one) with a half a finger of tan head. The nose is booze, brown sugar, toasted malts. First taste surprisingly sweet (how much booze would this thing have if left to it’s own devices? Whew!) also booze, but not rough, dried fruits, caramel malts. A little on the sweeter end than I usually like but overall a good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours like a coca-cola doppelgänger into the glass. I’m drinking this to celebrate what is hopefully the beginning of the end for my bumbling crack smoking mayor’s disgraceful time in office. Sweet on the nose with a slight pennies in water coppery twang. Flavour is a bundle: I get raisens, too much sugar, caramel & something oddly metallic. Enjoyable if not a little over rated on this site. Cheers.
