joechristenson (146) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Subtle aroma - got some apricot, orangle peel, but less of the spices - the anis promised by the bottle was virtually undetectable (to me, anyway). Fine looking beer, had a nice burnt orange translucence to it. Tastes of toffee and orange fruits, more mellow and subtle than I expected. Certainly quaffable. Definite yeast, the orange peel and coriander come through more as it warms. Not bad.

Alengrin (975) - BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
The heaviest and most interesting of the Floreffe range, with thick, yellow beige, moussy head and very dark brown colour, almost blackish, with wine-red hue. Malty and fruity aroma with spices, impressions of chocolate, caramel, banana, apple, passion fruit, coffee grounds, coriander, cloves, cinnamon, orange peel, port wine, hazelnut paste, honey, marzipan, cream. Full malty taste with dry coriander effect that will accompany the entire palate, finish a chicory kind of bitterishness, bit roasted, as well as warming, gin-like alcohol. Scotch-style ale.

Pours a dark brown body with a medium head. Aroma of syrup. Rich taste with tones of bread and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De lekkerste van de floreffe-bieren, een aanrader voor mensen die van een donker bier met een heel complexe volle smaak houden

pumpkinhead2 (325) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Bière brune foncée aux reflets rouge, plutôt limpide quoique quelques toutes petites particules en suspension soient visibles, très bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un large col moka, dense et mousseux, qui se réduit doucement en laissant une certaine dentelle sur les parois du verre. Arômes de caramel et de fruits foncés bien mûrs voire confits (raisin, cerise noire, datte, figue, prune/pruneau…), avec du pain grillé, céréale rôtie, pâtisserie, gâteau aux dattes, abondantes épices (clou de girofle, muscade, piment de la Jamaïque…), et subtiles notes de chocolat, de noisette, de fumée et de vanille. Excellente nez! Très agréable, complexité très élevée, très bonne intensité. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, breuvage plutôt mousseux, onctuosité moyenne au palais, légèrement moelleuse et veloutée. Au goût, pain grillé, céréale rôtie, fruits foncés bien mûrs voire confits, léger caramel, léger chocolat. Pas aussi sucré qu’anticipé, présence d’une légère acidité, épices présentes mais beaucoup plus subtiles qu’au nez, finale légèrement amère, pointe d’alcool. Moins intéressante, complexe et intense en bouche qu’au nez. Ça reste néanmoins très bon comme bière, définitivement la meilleure de la série Floreffe (elle porte bien son nom!). On pourrait aisément la qualifier de «Quadrupel Light».

Niksko (322) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours dark brown with loads of pillowy beige head. Nose is banana, clove, slightly dusty, dark fruits, toffee. Flavor is dark fruit, strong raisin, clove, vinious red wine character, toasted nut character on the finish. Fairly heavy mouthfeel, slight warming alcohol. Good.

Sdaniel90 (355) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. An opaque dark brown with a ruby hue and a velvety tan head. Intense aroma of dry fruits, toffee, dark chocolate and alcohol. Heavy and robust, with a strong roasted backbone and a subtle alcohol finish. Rich, warming and very pleasant.

Percy0103 (158) - MEXICO - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle, 750ml. A dark beer with a reddish hue at the bottom and a big foamy head with beautiful lacing. Aroma is very complex, mainly of pecan nuts, spices, alcohol, caramel and toasted malt. Taste is bitter and goes slightly sour at the end. Very rich and robust with a considerable amount of carbonation and astringency. Overall a great beer and definitely one I would always try to keep in my cellar.

BenOver (65) - SLOVENIA - JUL 24, 2014
Aroma is strong and resembles roasted coffe. Sweetness in the aroma is evident. Pours with a lot of head! and is roasted black in appearance. The beer has a lot of character, a lot of different, sweet notes. Great body. A very good beer! Sweet aftertaste.
