Beggard (60) - - MAR 22, 2016
Aroma of an serious beer, very intensive, deep, yeast and malt very well balanced, dark red to brown with a lasting foam. Lasting taste of a roasted coffee/malt but not to dominant, nothing like a porter. Satisfying palate. Overall a very good strong Belgian dark ale.

beerplace (419) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
Small bottle bought in BC Liquor store. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a slightly tan head. Complex aroma is dark fruits, toffy, similar to Belgian Quads. Carbonation is quite high. Taste is malty, dark fruits, caramel and notes of roasted malt. Some notes of iron in the aftertaste, unfortunately. Good one.

Aroma - figs, raisins, and carmalized sugars. Appearance - dark burgundy body, with a beige head. The head starts at about 1". The head slowly settles and is a bit frothy in that foam. Some minor lacing. Taste - is rich with raisin, fig, and some caramelized sugars. Palate - body is somewhere between medium and full, the texture sticky, the carbonation approaching lively, the finish is rich and full of caramelized sugar alcohol.

PlutonowyMan (399) - POLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Kolor: ciemno bordowy, burgundowy, na szczycie ogromna be?owa piana. Aromat: ?liwy s?odkie i sma?one, wi?nie w s?odkiej zalewie, karmel. Smak: jest troch? delikatniej ni? w aromacie, cho? bardzo podobnie. Lekka kwasno?? wi?ni, popió?, pieczone ?liwki i ponownie karmel tym razem nieco przypalony. Ca?o?? jest idealnie u?o?ona, nic nie przeszkadza, niczego nie jest za du?o ani za ma?o. Goryczka: tylko na finiszu, lekko pikantna. Wysycenie: ?rednie, wed?ug mnie pasuje. Alkohol nieznacznie zaznacza swoj? obecno??, nie przeszkadza.

rarbring (2181) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2015
Aroma: Smell of sweet fruity marmalade and some overtones of sherry.
Appearance: Light amber, nearly orange clear fluid. A rather strong foam that recedes into a fine lacing. Small bubbles.
Taste: The taste is very sweet, and dominated by fruits, like orange, but also some sherry tones both in taste and alcoholic presence.
Palate: The beer is pleasant to drink, nicely carbonated.
Overall: Goes very well with a strong cheddar I dare say.
Note: bottle Reviewed 2009-12-18.

Delft 23-11-2015 (drankgigant) Ouderwets etiket. Kastanje bruine kleur met mooie schuimkraag. Hele verassende smaak. Had een wat standaard bruin bier verwacht maar is vrij uniek. Ruikt lekker zoet, smaakt fruitig en neigt zelfs een beetje naar wijn. Perfect voor de donkere wintermaanden! Top!
