On tap at Lost Abbey. Pours brown-black with thick off white head that leaves plenty of lace. Root beer and licorice on the nose. Root beer! Thick full-bodied palate. Well balanced sweetness with a spicy undertone. They say there are raisins in there and I can believe it but it is subtle. Awesome Belgian-Style dark farmhouse beer.

Vighals (1001) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2014
Uklar mørk brun med høyt lys brunt skum som forsvinner fort. Rosiner, mørke modne stenfrukter og rødvinseddik. Kraftig smak sylig eddik sherry, noe mørk kaffebitterhet og sødme fra de mørke modne fruktene kommer også i bakgrunnen. Lite kullsyre

Mørk brunsvart farge med beige skum. Lukter mørk stenfrukt, alkohol. Soft og medium fylde. Jeg får litt sherryfeeling. Smaker sødme og rosiner og noe alkohol. Sødme og noe bitter avslutning.

Uau! A strong complex quadrupel, this brewery knows well how to brew big beers. Caramel, toffee, plum, dried fruits, candy sugar, brown sugar...

Dark velvety brownish red. Light velvety raisin smells. Smooth sweet but finishes quite dry. The dryness balances the sweet.

Barwa: ciemna, pod światło rubinowa, klarowna niemal do końca. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i długo utrzymująca się. [5/5] Aromat: zdecydowanie alkoholowy, jednak wsparty przez całą gamę innych akcentów - rodzynki, kwiaty, drożdże, ciemne owoce, cukierki karmelizowane, czekolada, melanoidyny. Niezwykle interesujący. Smak: pełny, słodowy, słodki. Czekolada, miód, ciemne owoce, cukierki. Zaznaczona goryczka oraz alkoholowa i nieco kwaskowa końcówka. Fantastyczne piwo, do nabycia którego skłoniła mnie jego obecność w książce "1001 piw, które warto spróbować" . Po degustacji trudno dziwić się, że zostało w niej umieszczone. Jest pełne i konkretne, a zarazem delikatne. Pełne owoców i czekolady, doskonale zbalansowane według najlepszych belgijskich wzorców. Być może zawdzięcza to zastosowanym dodatkom (karmelizowane rodzynki, miód, rozmaryn), a być może dodanym do refermentacji drożdżom Brettanomyces. Zdecydowanie polecam, bo choć cena nie niska to warto odżałować taki wydatek.

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2014
Une bière plutôt intéressante. On sent bien les raisins et le miel, c’est un peu moins évident pour le romarin (sauf quand on le sait, vu que c’est signalé sur la bouteille ^^). Une première bouche très puissante, presque fumée sur la durée, mais qui, en disparaissant, emporte pas mal de ses saveurs avec elle. A nouveau, intéressant, mais ils auraient pu travailler la chose différamment, l’équilibrer un peu mieux

Cloudy brown-red, tan head. Spice, honey, deep earthy tones. Predominated by sour and some sweeter notes. Long finish, mostly sour. Changes throughout the entire finish. Medium body, oily. Interesting beer, quite complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deekyn (1125) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 14, 2014
A- pours a hazy mahogany brown with a solid finger light tan head with good retention. Decent lacing. S- raisins and honey are obvious. Banana esters and bubble gum are pungent. Some astringent, 7up, figs, overripe apple and zinc. Rosemary comes through too. Brown sugar and molasses in the back. M- medium oily body that is also lightly tacky with a medium astringent palate. Good carbonation. T- astringent, Belgium yeast, sour oak and raisins all come through at first. The mid palate has mineral water and zinc with some honey, nutmeg, rosemary and muddled spices. Ending is dry. Lots more yeast, honey, figs, wood, bubble gum and sugar.

mgajdaczewa (448) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bardzo dobry belg. W aromacie przeważa ziołowość, z wyraźnym akcentem rozmarynu, podczas ogrzania piwo staje się coraz bardziej czekoladowe, wyraźne nuty winne, śliwkowe, czerwone owoce. W smaku bardzo podobnie, uderza rozmaryn, lekka czekoladowość, suszone owoce. Pełnia średnia, doskonale zamaskowany alkohol, niezła pijalność. Lekki kwasek od brettów.
