thebhoy (61) - Ontario, - FEB 1, 2013
A really solid and balanced Belgian Strong Ale. Pours a deep, brownish ruby red with a thin tan head. Aroma is of dark fruits, doughy yeast, and some sweet notes. Hides its 9.5% ABV well, a rather full buddy with light carbonation. Fairly long finish, lots of different flavours going on--mostly sweet fruits, some dark fruits and caramel malt in there as well, also bubblegum just slightly on the tongue. A strong beer, no the best example of a Belgian Strong Ale, but overall I quite enjoyed it.

tomekk1978 (1249) - 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 (39) - 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 (45) - - 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 (275) - 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.
