NikkTwist (2049) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy dark orange amber pour with a large lasting creamy head. Modestly full distinctive Belium caramel bread flavors up front that finish ridiculously smooth. The 11% ABV is extremely well hidden. Feels like a ghost at the end - until minutes later when the alcohol gently numbs the tongue. Simple notes extraordinarily executed.

TheCametron (2116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 14, 2015
Tasted alongside the other housebeers at Waterhuis in Ghent. This one fell short for me. Pours murky Amber with a cream head. Quite a lot of sweetness and booze. Didn’t work for me. Usually I like my Belgian beers to pack a punch but this didn’t really come together. IT did have some fairly dramatic competition though.

Rammer (361) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 28, 2015
Draft at Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant. Lovely strong ale! Very sweet, almost honey, amber color, light aroma and a pleasant warmth in the finish. 1 of the best in style!

Bill_Beach (1) - FRANCE - DEC 26, 2014 does not count
My favorite beer, tried it bottled and on draft at Waterhuis an der beer kant. I prefer it on draft, easy to drink, a bit like a cocktail or a good rhum, even goes well with cigars, a bit upsetting to some because it does not follow regular paterns, it to ligth colored compared to most "real belgium beer" with an high ABV, its to dark to be just another "high alcohol beer". The taste does not stay very long but that just makes you want to have more.....

kermis (7224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
Draft at Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant. Pours pinkish amber brown with an off white head. Aroma of malt, dough, caramel, toffee and some overripe dark fruit. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Too strong and too sweet.
