vipinvelp (3824) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2016
Clear dark ruby, big lasting, lacing tanned foam head. Light caramel tones, strong beer in drinking. Not sweet, OK. (Velp 201608)

Ysok02 (995) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2016
Robe brune, mousse crémeuse. Nez à la fois élégant et puissant sur des notes de chocolat fondant, de pruneau confit, de figue. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, fine bulle peu persistante, rétro de figue et longue finale tendue. Une bière puissante plus agréable au nez qu’en bouche

susonagger (196) - spain, - JUL 25, 2016
Esta cerveza se presenta con un color ámbar oscuro y una espuma blanquecina pero poco persistente. Nos trae todo el sabor de Bélgica. Su aroma es dulce, con notas afrutadas, a levadura y especias. El sabor es acaramelado, con notas a pasas, ciruela y especias.

martin00sr (2745) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2016 Red brown, clear. Big light beige head. Aroma has malt and dark sugar. Complex flavour of malt, dark sugar, dried fruit, notes of yeasty spice and warming alcohol. Perhaps a little licorice. Nice one.

Steverus0 (262) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Burnished brown in the glass with some particulates and a light, lingering head. Belgian yeast and brown sugar on the palate with high effervescence and a mild sour kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mkel07 (5145) - 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 (1935) - 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 (1307) - 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 (85) - 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
