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.

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.

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.
