crazy_cat_lady (108) - - FEB 3, 2014
January 4, 2014. 330mL bottle from LCBO some time ago, pulled from our ’cellar’. Not much aroma. Cinnamon and raisin flavour. Nice mouthfeel. Not much head (may have been served too cold). Touch of sourness.

freretoc (574) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 1, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur brune cuivrée avec une mousse qui monte vite, en bouche les notes grillées du caramel et du café arrivent et enfin une amertume forte.

Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a dark brown colour with a off-white lacing. Aroma has caramel, malts and alcohol. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet. Overall, a bit too sweet for me.

Buongiorgio00 (725) - - JAN 28, 2014
Buona belgian strong ale dal carattere elegante, con un gusto interessante di note di caramello e frutta scura che sfuma in un sottofonde dolce e piacevole. Leggermente presenti sentori alcolici.

Sten (617) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2014
Brown-blackish beer with a nice beige head. Aroma is malty, spicy and yeasty. Flavour is malty, yeasty and a bit acidic due to the carbonation. (Bottle 33cl, 9% alcohol in my version)

Ruben1977 (15) - SPAIN - JAN 26, 2014
Botella de 33. Color marron rojizo con buena espuma en inicio dejando una buena corona en el tiempo. En boca complicada con un lijero amargor al inicio que se torna a dulces carmelo, un toque frutal que la hace pasar por distintas fases. De cuerpo medio y con un retrogusto que me deja una sensacion compleja con una muy buena integracion de alcohol. Carbobatacion correcta para mi gusto en esta strong ale, en resumen muy recomendable.

angel77 (787) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 26, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Botella y caña en el lúpulo. La primera en mayo de 2011 ---la segunda en 25-01_2014. color caoba con toques rojizos, espuma beige poco persistente. Aromas dulces de caramelo y algo especiados. Cuerpo medio bastante fácil de beber. Sabores bastante dulces algo especiados con ligeros toques finales de madera regaliz y muy ligera acidez. Bastante buena como la recordaba cuando tome la botella.

ABT_S54 (124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
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 a very rewarding unusual choice.

Mörkbrun med ljusbrunt litet skum! Doftar sött av malt och lite russin och kryddor! samma i smaken! Ok öl

A strong dark belgian beer. Tons of dark fruit, lots of mellow spicing. Potent amount of alcohol.
