DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, shared with my wife. Medium chestnut brown colour, medium beige head. This beer presents a decent malt structure, but is overpowered by a black licorice presnce. If the body was bigger, then maybe th licorice thing would wok better, but s it I, the beer came across as unbalanced and a tad thin (yes, even at 8%).

Franckg (654) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
Bouteille expirant le 16/03/17. Robe brune foncée presque opaque surmonté d’un beau col de mousse blanchâtre et crémeux. Dentelle epaisse et collante. Arômes de dattes, levures belges, pruneaux, chocolat noir, cerises, anis, citron. Légères pointes poivrées. En bouche, mûres, cerise, pruneaux, dattes et chocolat noir. Belle transition où les levures s’affirment. Saveurs de pain rôtis, légères épices ainsi que du citron. Finale épicée, anis, café moka, peut-être un peu trop citronnée. Texture moyennement mince. Effervescence un peu trop intense. Bonne brune, bel équilibre, complexité à revoir. Haut taux d’alcool bien caché.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2015 God og spændende belgisk strong ale. Tilpas sød smag. Flot farve på både øl og skum.

altonbrownd (4600) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2015
11/21/2006 1:28:13 AM Bottle at home. A really amazing ale. Burgundy color. Thick, syrupy with tastes of licorice, oatmeal, berries. Incredibly smooth, with alcohol content totally hidden. Perhaps too sweet?

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 From a bottle. Not a light beer at all, this is a serious undertaking be well worth it, rich flavours with a yeastie finish.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Boisson brune assez foncée et opaque, mousse durable mais rare à la surface. Nez de raisins rouges, de cerises au marasquin, et de sucre d’orge. La bouche est douce, forte en sucres mais assez soyeuse, avec des prunes et des dattes qui ressortent en avant-plan. Ressemble à la double de la même brasserie, mais avec un peu plus de torque et d’intensité. Une excellente bière dans son genre, mais qui ne détient pas vraiment de longueur d’avance sur ses concurrentes.

SkillsFactory (280) - ITALY - AUG 8, 2015
Tonaca di frate scuro con riflessi giallastri, schiuma beige abbastanza fine molto persistente. Aroma di anice, prugna e altri frutti scuri che prevalgono su tutto il resto, leggera liquirizia e leggero tostato. Al palato si ripresenta la prugna mista a zucchero caramellato, molto dolce, sul finale note tostate, leggero cacao, seguite da un lieve amaro erbaceo. Corpo pieno, mediamente carbonata.

inbirraveritas (1394) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2015
Fliptop bottled, 33 cl. Unclear dark brown colour, medium sized beige head. Nose and aroma ruled by dried fruits underpainted by brown sugar, alcohol and mild licorice. Dry, somewhat boozy finish with earth and licorice. Nice.
