UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015 Very pleasant beer for occasional drinking, as Iím not too fond of dark beers. Probably goes great with food (a good steak comes to mind). Very drinkable for rookies like me. Nice overall taste.

ordybill (334) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Poured from a 33cl bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A great smell of malt with maybe some spice tossed in. Appearance. Pours dark brown with an off-white colored head. Taste- Has a great sweet malt flavor that builds with each sip. Palate- this is a full bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- An outstanding beer, I would drink this again and again

Bottle, with date 4 II 2016. Brown with ruby reflexes, clear. Slightly brown head with small/medium bubbles, starts with thick layer, but dropping to minimum (but not disappearing entirely) and leaving some lacing. Aromas: fenols and spices, some milk chocolate. High carbonation, rather light bodied. In taste: little yeasty sour at beginning, leaving some earthy bitterness behind. A regular belgium dark ale - decent one (especially that itís a large scale product), but not something extraordinary.

EdKing (2029) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle in Glasgow. Opaque dark brown beer with a beige head. Nose is roasted grain, sugar, lactic, slight malt, dark chocolate, fruity esters, candy sugar. Taste is lactic, milky chocolate, stout flavours, candy sugar, roasted malt, dark fruit esters, prune, raisin. Really surprised by how good this is, considering it is produced on a large scale.

Fresh & effervescent to start followed by some big Christmas cake flavours. A lighter example of Belgium ale. Not much yeastyness. Rated by BrewTom

Pours a deep red brown with rocky head. Aroma is peppery, dried fruits. High carbonation but very smooth, not overly sweet, really pleasant.

#100 :-)
Bottle 0,33l; clear dark ruby body, light brown head. Aroma like wheat beer - sour yeasty, but when is head gone, is nice fruity - plums, dark berries, dark cherries, red currant . Taste is sweet with dark fruits, nuts, chocolate, grains, caramel, dark malts, hints of alcohol, some herbs. Sweet aftertaste. Soft carbonation, smooth oily texture on the mouthfeel.
Delicious, I enjoied it!
