loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Ambrée foncée, sur les tons orange foncé. Belle mousse crémeuse beige claire. Petite couche persistante avec dépôts assez importants. Aromatique très fruitée et sucrée. Sur les fruits rouges et le caramel. Très légère acidité. Levures belges bien présentes. Plutôt maltée et sucrée en entrée de bouche, sur le caramel. Fruitée. Petite amertume. Belgian Strong Ale bien balancée sur le sucré-amère, un peu plus sur le sucré tout de même. Surtout en fin de bouche. Carbonatation moyenne. Bonne belge, malgré un poil trop sucrée en fin de bouche.

Blastomorpha (15) - - NOV 7, 2014
Out of the 33cl bottle, the appearence is inviting with its dark amber color and light yellow head. I really like the strong caramel aroma which fortunately does not turn into a too sweet taste. On the contrary, the beer leaves me with a nice bitter end in mouth.

Rich71 (35) - Rijnsburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
Deze recensie is zoals ik mij het bier herinner. Lichtbruine/amber kleur. Wat vettige/dikke schuimkraag. Lichtzoete droge smaak. Licht bittere nasmaak. Jammer dat het bier zo slecht verkrijgbaar is.

cervmagpt (317) - PORTUGAL - OCT 27, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 49 03:05 AROMA: sweet malty and caramely background with peppey alcohols. Some faint dried fruits (raisins and some plums). no hop aromas or other additions. APPEARANCE: deep amber color and translucent. large and dense moussy head with ivory color. average retention with some lacing. TASTE: sweet malty profile without much complexity. some bread notes and medium-low bitterness. finishes medium-dry. PALATE: medium-low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: yet another average Belgian Strong Ale that faces tough competition.
