Piero1987 (681) - Iglesias, ITALY - JUN 4, 2014
Brown color with big head. Nice old fruit and ripe fruit aroma mixed with caramel malt. Light sweet and smooth, but too drinkable.

Pours very dark brown with a large tan head. Lot of bubbles in this one. Thats about the only negative. Very strong aroma, dark and light fruits and alcohol. Taste is much the same. Excellent representation of the style.

venom666 (345) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2014
Dark brown color with a creamy beige foam. Sweet scents of ripe fruit, especially plums and cherries and apple. Malty taste, with ripe fruits, plums, cherries, apricots and caramel.

pras (464) - Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Clear brown appearance. Aroma of raisins and prunes. Flavor is raisin and prune, and sweet. Slightly warming. Pretty spot on for the style. I think I just don’t like the style.

DwarfeD (938) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
33cl at home. Clearish dark amber brown with a medium off-white head which didn’t last too long. Medium to full body with ditto carbonation. Sweet with spices and some hoppy tones. Caramel, brown sugar, bread, grain, herbs and spices. A nice full flavoured dark Belgian brew.

lux_edwards (104) - - MAY 24, 2014
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.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
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.

nlc (90) - Amsterdam & Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Old school classic belgian brown beer. Yummi. Nice dark roasty caramel flavoura. Not to sweet, nice dark head. Don’t drink it to cold.

Bue en bouteille de 33 cl. Ensemble moyen. Alcool trop présent. Notes de raisin et de fruits rouges.
