mkel07 (5228) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2016
Bottle from Beer Cartel 290616. Wow this is a really good beer, especially on a cool night. Dark cola colour with a modest had of foam. The flavour is big and fills the mouth and leaves a rich almost creamy aftertaste. Not sure even Nostradamus could have predicted how good this beer is.

JDBaker11058 (1963) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2016
appearance: dark cola-brown, with significant floaties and a finger of creamy tan head. aroma: expansively sweet, with candi sugar, molasses, raisin toast, figs and prunes. taste: candi sugar, slightly burnt, with caramel, molasses, raisins, prunes, and figs; some cherry and dark raspberry, maybe old peaches; there’s a bourbon note as well. finish: very sweet finish, though with a bit of alcohol heat to dry things out. notes: Tastes like a dubbel, feels like a strong ale. Very sweet, so was glad to share the 750. Bottle courtesy of Zoltan.

tomekk1978 (1314) - Z±bki, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Aromat: estry, zioła, lekkie utlenienie, karmel, alkohol. W sumie belgijski. Wygląd: barwa ciemno czerwona, zamglona. Piana beżowa, obfita i długo utrzymująca się, ale piwo wydaje się przebazowane. Smak: słodycz, złamana kwaskowoscią, karmel, owoce, melano, alkohol. Goryczka niewielka, nie drażni. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i kwaskowo- alkoholowy finisz. Nieźle, choć mogło by być świeższe.

ozzatoadisback (93) - ITALY - MAY 7, 2016
Dark brown, possibily hazy, off-white moderate head, decent persistence, little lacing. Aroma has an intense and warming liquorous wine character, with notes of caramel and dark fruits. Taste opens sweet with caramel, dark fruits and a pleasant warming feel, alcohol is nicely hidden tough. Finish has a hint of bitterness and is suprisingly dry for the style. Medium body (actually quite light per style), smooth and clean but still warming palate. Overall it’s a clean and well done but not particularly exciting beer

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.
