chimaybier (50) - Redding, California, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Was given an 11.2 oz. bottle- and it’s a Friday! The pour: rich, head collapses quickly due to it’s high alochol content. The color: deep, dark, almost stoutish in color. The bouquet: very ripe plums, baker’s dark chocolate, with nice roasted malt subtleties. The palate: toasty, malty, a rich creaminess and pepperiness at the same time. (Not easy to achieve in a beer!) The finish: wonderful lingering malt finish. This is a wonderful beer. I have had their tripel, and it was fantastic as well!

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 (185) - 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.
