pretty good, seems a little thin as the flavours disappear quicker than they should but as long as they are there they’re nice enough - typical dark fruit/currants and yeast.

puboflyons (2783) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 24, 2015
From the 750 ml. corked, caged bottle. Brown, heady pour with reddish hues and moderate clarity. Consistent carbonation. The aroma has a sweet malt note to it along with plums, prunes, and raisins. Touch of booze. The body is medium. The taste brings out the same malt sweetness but there is a bitter bite coming up at the end and lingering. Dry finish.

Valt nog mee, weinig of geen schuimkraag, een donkere kleur. Goed te drinken.

rikstar (1759) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
0,33l fles gedeeld bij lion. Bruin met een net niet witte schuimkraag. Parfum, caramel en alcohol voeren de boventoon. Afdronk wat metalig.

aenima (323) - Askim, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
Belgian fruity aroma. Taste is also fruity. Not many flavours and aroma. Good but a little plain and boring.

huineman (471) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2015
Pours cloudy ruby with thick tan head. High aroma is berries (raspberry and strawberry); liqueur, a hint of liquorice. Also chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla. Very powerful but so well balanced it feels fresh. Full body.

rdb84 (447) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Cola pour with a generous mocha colored foam head. Aroma holds the middle between Speciale Belge and an abbey double. Prune, dried apricots, pepper. Licorice permeates. First sip is very metallic, copper. Subsequent sips remind of a stout, but a little fruitier (apricots, mocha, hint of coffee). Bitter, creamy development. Aftertaste is stout, prune. Ok.
