Pours amber brown, small head. Nice aromas of dried fruits, nuts, some chocolate. In the mouth sweet-bitter, with chocolate, hazelnut, toffe and dried frut. Good concentration with lots of nice bubbles. A nicely put together abbey style brew.

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear brown body with a big, stable foamy tan head. Nice aroma of malt, dry fruit, spices and some warming alcohol. Flavor is sweet, rich malty, dry fruit, spices and warming alcohol. Feels hot, but in a nice way, not sticky and boozy. Fine body and good aftertaste. This is a nice and well-made Belgium ale for sipping or good cheese.

Very carbonated for a quad. Great head. Sweet raisin and chocolate aroma and taste. Dry finish, very little molasses that sticks.

Desverger (1283) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Fish and Beer, CPH, shared with Niller - dark brown pour with a medium beige head. Aroma and taste of dark malts, caramel, light choc, brown sugar, nutty, yeasty, spices, dark dried and some ripe fruit. The 12% abv is very well hidden, nice mouthfeel, and comes round really well as it warms up. Very good this.

Trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig süß, überreife Früchte, hefig, würzig. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, reife Früchte, leicht alkoholisch, würzig.

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.

ruigo (857) - PORTUGAL - MAR 18, 2014
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.

SimonBeer (63) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
(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.
