It is a dark, sweet beer. Not something I might drink on a hot afternoon. However in the evening, this is my favorite beer. Heavy, filling, unique. I have never had a beer quite like this one. This beer is like "Port" is to Wine. It is a beer with a different, unique flavor, that is great to finish off an evening with. Belgium classic.

Very strong deep dark, brown ale. Creamy, soft, dry taste. The head is full and light brown.caramel, coffee, chocolate,
The bitters embrace the sweetness. This is a perfect beer for a dark winter

330ml bottle at Corner Bar, Beijing. Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of Begian yeast with fruit and malt. Very sweet taste like flat coke. Sweet finish.

-hard on the edge between very sweet and too sweet
-brown sugar and toffee notes dominating
-slight dark fruit and Banana notes
-clear toasted malt character on the backend
-slightly boozy as it warms up
-toasty and slightly alcoholic finish
good, but the sweetness almost kills it for me

Al-coca-cola. Looks like coke, tastes like coke and vodka mix. The mouth feel is totally at vàrience with an all malt beer. Sugar based sweetness suffuses the flavour and mouth feel. It is an appalling, tooth rotting beer.

Butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem, na szybko: bardzo fajny, zlozony aromat - z przodu owoce (zarowno swieze - wisnie glownie, jak i suszone - troche delikatniej - sliwki, rodzynki), jakies delikatniejsze czekoladowo-kawowe nuty, alkohol a la porto, lekka przyprawowosc, lekkie slodycze a la czekoladki z marcepanem. w smaku juz tak bogato nie jest - jest slodycz, jest kwaskowatosc (odrobine moze nawet za wysoka), troszke malo ciala, faktury jakiejs jak na styl. lekka goryczka, lekkie rozgrzewanie alkoholem (tym razem a la czerwone wino), fajne, slodkawe, karmelowe posmaki, klasa.

Pours a coppery brown color, topped with a medium sized but quickly disappearing tan colord head. Aroma of some dry fruits, a bit yeasty and some caramel presence as well. Taste is sweet and somewhat fruity, yeasty presence and a bit bready. Alcohol is quite hidden. Malty. Not what I like really.

BOD 2/6/13. Pours a dark garnet that is almost black unless held to light. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention...considering it’s 11% ABV.
Outstanding rich nose of plum, raisin and fig over a solid caramel malt base. Light alcohol notes are present.
Light medium body with a smooth texture. Light carbonation with just a touch of effervescence in the middle and finish.
The flavor profile is almost world class. Reasonable intensity, quite complex and very well balanced. The only flaws are the body is a bit light and the alcohol is not quite covered. The fruits of the nose predominate with sweetness upfront that flows through plum, fig and raisin. The middle brings an alcohol note that intensifies into the finish and also provides a bit of heat. The flavor shifts from the sweet dark fruits noted earlier into a prune that is slightly astringent. Prune and alcohol linger.

Bottle at home. Taste sweet. Caramel, raisin, banana and cinnamon. Interesting and complex. Warming. Not bad at all.

Drank this at a bar in Den Bosch, really sweet taste, too sweet if you ask me, the high percentage (11%) doesn?t really come back.I?m not a really huge fan of dark beers but maybe this can change my mind. Love the glass by the way, there?s really a castle at the bottom of it.
