ogivlado (7033) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottled 750ml. -from Mercator Brežice. Dark amber coloured, medium sized beige head, pleasant nutty chocolate nose. Moderate sweet malty, caramel, yeast and spices with mild nutty notes in the finish. Pretty dry finish also with a whiff of chocolate, overall very good beer. Much better and almost 2.50€ cheaper (8.79€/10.99€) than their "white brothers" (Blonde and Belle d’Ete).

CanCrusher (854) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle 0,75L bought at local supermarket. Clear, dark amber color with lively visible carbonation and small, frothy, light brown head, that almost dissipate in a minute. Poor aroma of cocoa, caramel and malt. Taste is light bitter with a hint of chocolate, nuts and dried fruits. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Decent Belgian brew.

75cl bottle. Reddish dark brown colour with a thin off-white head. Roasted malts, berries, raisins, dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is more sweet with some bitter coffee notes. Overall, a nice beer.

Swaroga (1954) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2015
Intensive aroma and flavor. One of the best among other La Trouffette brand. Still has this quite strange funky wood and juniper like taste behind. Apart that dominating aromas are chocolate and dried fruits with a decent flowery hop bite. Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden.

Aroma: bit sweet, caramel, dried fruits, some milk chocolate. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: little sour, caramel, lots of chocolate, some mocha, dried fruits. Aftertaste: bit sweet, lots of chocolate, bit hoppy, caramel, not too sweet. Very decent stuff!!!

Alengrin (4163) - BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2014
Bastogne’s second, with yellowish white head and rusty brown colour. Aroma of overripe fruits, cocoa powder, leather, nuts, coffee grounds; earthy taste, candied fruits with spicy accents on a caramelly and somewhat nutty malt base, drying and becoming more yeasty towards the finish with a bitterish tail.

mikske79 (1397) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Een donker bier waar veel te weinig smaak aan is, normaal zijn de donkere bieren goed en vol van smaak, deze niet.

Bonne brune, presque 7 degrés qu’on sent pas. Brasserie de Bastogne est une très bonne brasserie.
