11th commandment: thou shalt not make a beer that is a dead ringer for martini rosso. Took me a few drinks to place it but when I did, it was over. Is there an annual bianco clone for summer? Misguided. Tastes like some impromptu homebrew recipe. Disappointed

mariuspoenari (425) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Pour is dark, almost opaque with a thick head that gives way to a creamy lacing. You can tell from the smell that this is a Belgian dark ale, with a strong strawberry smell, rich caramel and a hint of alcohol. Rosemary is also present in the nose, with a hint of pine. Light carbonation with a very complex flavour - the raisins give the drink a very wine-like taste, but with alcohol spiciness, caramel sweetness and a powerful rosemary taste that I found a bit too overwhelming. Medium-dry finish. A very complex beer, that’s interesting right from the start, but becomes a bit too overwhelming as you go.

George999 (315) - Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2015
From the bottle the color is dark brown with very little color permeating the beer, the head is thick and carmel colored, the aroma is a little sour and smells barrel aged, the taste is sour, malty and charcoal notes, but there is a fruity sour note. The carbonation is mild almost not existent. The finish I am getting rosemary.

Bottle from Beergium. Dark brown color, beige head. Bitter taste with earthy notes, nuts, roasted malts, dark fruits, raisins and a bit of alcohol. Bitter finish with toffee, roasted malts, peppers, nuts, dark fruits and earthy notes. Very nice Belgian strong, but not as great as I expected.

A great Belgian Strong Ale. Dark and Complex, rich spices and roasting, caramel and nuts, a little funk and earthiness. Very satisfying ale.
