FlemishChar (224) - Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Dark chocolate brown color. Huge rocky head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor is sharply sweet, with lots of malt, but with a slight, pleasant acidity. Very nice. A friend brought me this bottle straight from Brussels.

KoNrRiI (1154) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A very dark brown color with a small, hilly, off-white head. Aroma of bananas, citruses, yeasts, and surprisingly some smoke. Taste is sweet, yeasty, and malty; sugar, caramel, and fruits are the most prominent - quite complex. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long with a sugary character - quite ok. All in all the beer is tasty but by no means awesome or anything like that.

Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Brown and cloudy with big head. The beer has a medium intensive but deep aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, clove, cherry coke, some vanilla, brown cake. Oily and creamy texture with medium thick body. Medium sweet with dried fruits and cake notes. Finish is more dried fruits and earthy spices. Aftertaste is medium long. OK.

Brewhemia (163) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2016
Really nice belgian strong ale. Raisins and black pepper in the aroma. Tastes of prunes and raisins with some acidity in the aftertaste. Low but some bitterness. A really good beer resembling the best of the trappists.

Nagy, tartós hab, sötétbarna szín. Pörkölt malátás, karamelles illat. Karamelles, kissé alkoholos ízek, testét a kissé édeskés pörkölt maláta adja. Enyhe keserű, komoly szénsav.
