Bottled. 13.11.10 0730310. Beer is clear, dark brown. Head is initially large, off-white, frothy. Quickly and totally disappears. The aroma is malty with heavy notes of roasted grain, sugary caramel, lesser notes of biscuit and raw sugar; Light/moderately yeasty basement note; Light notes of floral/herbal hop, iced tea, light note of tea; Moderate hot and spicy alcohol note. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly/moderately bitter, lightly acidic with a long, moderately sweet, lightly/moderately bitter finish. The body is full, the texture is syrupy and the carbonation is average.

patricks110 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours a dark, amber with a hazy, cloudy body and a huge foamy mess of off yellow head. The aroma is rich with toffee and caramel malts, raisin and prune notes and Belgian esters. Nice light candy sweetness up front with the dark, dried fruit. The finish is heavy and warm with booze. A good quad overall with tons of sediment and yeast flavour.

Bottle from Del Haize, Anspachlaan, Brussels. Previously I tasted it in Poechenellekelder, it’s a pub across to Manneken Pis in Brussels. very brown dark beer. Nice aroma. Won World’s bed dark beer in 2014 and I guess even in 2013.

Fredd_an (58) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2014
Doften är ganska vek, men känner en jästig ton av choklad & bröd i smaken. Även i doften lite vagt. Sötma av malten & alkoholen sticker igenom. Men på ett väldigt fint & balanserat sätt. Inte så det jävlas på nåt sätt. Riktigt bra öl med andra ord! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seynie (187) - Tienen, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
Dark brown with a foamy head. Red fruit, bitters, tannins and cask, wood, raisins, alcohol. Great beer with a full body and long dry finish like a good red wine. Excellent beer

barbillon (5) - Pesaro, ITALY - DEC 6, 2014 does not count
A mio parere un prodotto di alto prestigio, assimilabile alle birre trappiste. Di colore scuro ha una bella schiuma beige, con un sapore di caramello e frutta rossa e un finale amarognolo molto piacevole.

Flesje 33cl op 10 graden C tht jan 2016. Heel donkerbruin met een mooie stevige schuimkraag. Aroma geeft veel suikers wat gist en een vleugje alcohol. Veel smaken oa van suikers, zoethout en pruim. Goed in balans. Afdronk is complex en rijk met een bittere hoofdtoon

Pours clear mahogany with massive rocky off white head; plums and raisins and licorice on the nose; off dry palate with medium carbonated mouth feel ; cross between aby 12 and la trappe quad. Hides the 12% unbelievably well!
