Bière tres foncée, belle mousse, au nez, ca sent le sucre. Au goût, le sucre revient, et le caramel aussi.. Se boit doucement, tranquillement, c est pas une bière de soif du tout... Agréablement surpris, car l étiquette ne m inspirais pas du tout...

Rich and tasty beer. Yeasty and malty of course, with lots of dark fruit and herbs. Belgian craftmanship.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared a 33cl bottle from Delhaize (Luxembourg). Pours a hazy brownish copper colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is floral, caramel and a bit grassy. Average carbonation and medium oily body. Taste is medium bitter and light to medium sweet. Alcohol not noticeable, for this ABV is a feature. Overall, a well balanced beer kind of digestive.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Drinking date: 16 March 2014) A nice aroma. You smell alcohol, sweetness, chocolate, raisins and also a bit of fresh hops. Very dark brown, clear beer with a big layer of beige foam, which reduces quickly. Very lovely sweet, warm taste, with a small bitterness in it to compensate the sweetness. But most of all a sweet beer. You also taste a bit of chocolate malts. The alcohol leaves a warm, burning feeling in the mouth and throath. Sweet aftertaste. The mouthfeel is soft, but also with a good carbonation. Love it. Overall, I am really enjoying this beer. I didn?t have high expectations of this beer honestly, but I really really love it. Nice sweet, soft beer, with a lovely aroma and taste. That?s why I give it the total score of 4.2!

33 cl bottle. Dark with little carbonation. Aroma: sweet fruit, raisins and alcohol. Taste: sweet. Palate: a little bitter aftertaste, overall wekk balanced. I like it but would like a little more carbonation and frothy head.

Bottle, poured dark brown, cloudy with a huge beige head that dissipates quickly leaving a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is mostly dark fruit and alcohol. Taste is sweet, raisins, dates some spices and lots of booze. Enjoyable beer, not bad at all.

Mahogany. Beige had that diminishes quickly. Good lacing. Sweet and vineous aroma. Blackcurrant, red wine, dates and dark caramel. Sweet in taste with full mothfeel. Rhum rasins, red wine and caramel. Aftertaste sweet aftertaste of rasins and the finest port. No evidence of the high alcohol neither in aroma or taste.

Compared to other strong belgian beers this one is very spicy and boozy (too much) sweet taste with honey. Finishes with an odd bitter taste. Will not buy this one again although price is ridiculous
