33 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown with minimal head. Aroma of brown sugar, malts and chocolate. Taste is sweet but not overly. Palate is very smooth with a lasting warming sensation. Overall is good, I will buy again to see if I can experience the full head others describe.

Aroma met rozijnen, pruim, chocolade en rijpe peer. Smaak is kruidiger, met likeur bonbons, gluhwein en een nasmaak wat zacht bitter zoet is. Plakkerige kraag van beige op zwartbruin. Koolzuur in balans.

Old school classic belgian brown beer. Yummi. Nice dark roasty caramel flavoura. Not to sweet, nice dark head. Don’t drink it to cold.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks Mike. The aroma is hot, plum, raisin. The flavor is toffee, caramel, slight fusel, very dry finish. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/28/2015. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red color with a 2 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, caramel, toast, biscuit, candi sugar, light chocolate, bubblegum, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark malt notes; with great strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, apple, fig, banana, caramel, toast, biscuit, candi sugar, light chocolate, light bubblegum, pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, pear, apple, fig, banana, caramel, toast, biscuit, light chocolate, candi sugar, light bubblegum, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly slick/pricky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a excellent Belgian strong dark ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It has a smell of liquorice (typically Dutch/Belgian), the aroma of resin and caramal. Apperance is extremely cloudy with brown firm foam head that lasts (a bit like Guinness), a bit fizzy at the top. The taste is slightly salty in the finish, but sweet overall. The palate: a full syrupy body, moderately alcoholic.

33cl bottle served in a Trappist glass. Pours a deep, dark brown colour with a moderate head. Tastes rich and elegant with hints of toffee and dried dark fruits. Mounthfeel is nicely balanced with the sweetish palate without any cloying stickiness. Overall very nice.
