Very pleasant with no aftertaste. The beer was almost sweet. The draft beer created a tingly sensation. Iím not a major drink enthusiast but this kind of beer is making me one.

Served on tap at Belgian Beer Cafe, Canberra. Bloody delicious drop. Had one a couple weeks back and was in the neighborhood today so I had to drop in for another. Itís a bit sweeter than I remember, almost (but not quite) too sweet... It would be perfect if it was just a tad drier. The complex malt flavours are delightful. Very slight hint of sourness is interesting and complimentary. Lovely full body and mouthfeel is balanced by the brightness of high carbonation. Head didnít last long in my glass, which tends to be a negative point for me especially in a dark and full bodied beer. The dark mahogany look is very attractive in the bulbous glass. I wish I could make a Belgian beer taste like that. Mmm, Mmm...

Bottle. Great amount of good malts in taste. Also some fruity hints. A lot of sweetness, not annoying. Not a bad beer.

Pours chestnut brown with a small light brown, quickly dissipating head. Malty, maybe a bit fruity aroma. Sweet, full malty taste, hints of hazlenut.. Slightly bitter finish.

Nice brown color with a stable airy head. Well carbonated and true to its style this beer is enjoyable top to bottom. Tastes of nuts, sweet potato, and quality malts. This beer starts and finishes sweet and is well balanced for even flavors throughout. Bottoms Up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rich and creamy brew with mild, well-balanced flavors. Notable dark malts, pronounced yeast presence and slight alcohol sting.

superspak (2630) - Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/28/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, banana, clove, chocolate, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, fig, banana, clove, chocolate, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, banana, clove, chocolate, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
