Piair (2) - BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2014 does not count
La robe est d’un brun sombre, la mousse fragile, le nez acide. Je ne comprends pas que l’on puisse si bien coter cette biere qui manque cruellement de personnalité. Ok on ressent des notes de caramel et de candi, mais cela ma que cruellement de subtilité et de caractère! Peut mieux faire...

Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur noire, mousse noire, effervescence moyenne, une bière avec une attaque sur le réglisse et le malt un peu café, trop sucrée.

mutz (638) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Van de tap @ de klep. Donkerbruin, kraag blijft niet lang. Ruikt een beetje zurig, smaakt naar rozijnen, beetje snoep. Weinig vol. Niet zo heel goed, middle of the road.

didierlewallon (141) - ponferrada, SPAIN - NOV 21, 2014
Cerveza de color negro profundo, espuma de color marrón. Aroma a Anís, regaliz, malta tostada y café. Sabor a café, a cacao, a malta tostada, cerveza vigorosa y entrañable, tiene un grado de alcohol medio, un final largo un poco ácido. Cerveza confusa pero muy agradable, me gusto, buena cerveza.

dnicolaescu (938) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 7, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: clear dark ruby-brown, small beige head with decent retention. Aroma: intense dried fig with a nice dry nuttiness notes and light toasty notes. Taste: quite sweet and rich, dried fruit, some warming alcohol at the beginning, light roasty bitterness. An excellent rich beer.

UXO (398) - CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours clear amber-brown with cola red highlights, a short and short-lived light tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is brown sugar and boozy dark fruit, mild spice. Taste is moderate candi sugar sweetness, apple fruitiness and fruitcake spices, slight sour/tart. Medium body, prickly sustained carbonation, with an off-dry mild bitter lingering finish. Probably the best of the Floreffe offerings I’ve tried. I’m not going to break my neck trying to get any more, you understand - this is just the best of a fairly mediocre bunch. Kind of a boozy medium-dark fruitcake, that somebody got confused while marking, and added apples. (What is it with Floreffe and apples? Every one of those beers tastes like apples. Must be their house yeast.) It’s very, very similar to the Dubbel, except with a little more pronounced nose and a much more noticeable booziness. Definitely falls short of greatness, and there are definitely many better examples of the style to be had.
