2006 bottle from my cellar shared with 4 friends. An excellent beer. It was a bit lively (after a long cycle ride). Great taste

VincentDamon (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Bière achetée à Los Angeles. Brun foncé, opaque, avec des reflets rouges, avec une mousse crémeuse immense. Nez complexe de levures, de sucre brun, de bananes. En bouche, c’est puissant, capiteux! Notes de caramel et de levures. Bière puissante, désaltérante quand même, sans aucun doute à partager. Cheers!

Bule (690) - California, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a dark reddy brown color with a bit of rad that dissipates quickly. Caramel, belgian yeast and a slight hop bitterness.

visionthing (2578) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2014
33cl bottle from La Maison Belge, Puerto de la Cruz. Pours slighty hazy dark brown to amber, with a rather small, tan head. Malty aroma with dark fruits, sugar, caramel, alcohol and hints of spices. Sweet and malty with warming alcohol. Full body with carbonation more on the soft side. Too sweet, but certainly pleasant.

fantti (676) - FINLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin syvän tummanpunaisena ja reunoilta valoa läpäisevänä, 3 sormen paksuisella paksulla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on huomattavan paljon sokerista ja soijamaista makeutta, muita löytyviä vivahteita ovat kuivatut hedelmät ja päärynä. Hunajakin tulee mieleen ja kokonaisuutena viinikumit hedelmäisyyden ja sokerisuuden yhdistelmänä. Maku on myös hyvin, hyvin makea, sokeriruoko on ensimmäinen mielleyhtymä. Alla on kuivattua hedelmää ja jonkinlaista yrttistä mausteisuutta. Alkoholikin iskee lopussa läpi ja kaiken kaikkiaan jää hyvin liköörimäinen mielikuva. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen ja makea ennen kuin alkoholi alkaa polttaa ja täyttää suun. Jätti kyllä pettyneen mielen, sokerisuus ja alkoholi ovat vain liian vahvasti esillä. Yksiulotteinen ja viinainen belgiale. Tuskimpa paranisi edes kypsytyksellä.

uckelman (232) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2014
Pours opaque dark brown. Long-lasting pillowy tan head. Aroma is alcohol, caramel, and treacle---a bit like a rum cake. Huge alcohol on the front blows away a lot of the other flavors. Quite a bit of burn, which makes sense for a 12% beer. Not sweet. Somewhat bitter. Beautify silky mouthfeel. Very pleasant.

venom666 (298) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2014
Dark brown with creamy durable beige foam. Full-bodied. Sweet caramel aroma, although a bit alcoholic. Taste of caramel, sweet sugar, cherry and a little bit of coffee. Smooth and sweet finish. Impressive!

beerman33190 (42) - FRANCE - MAY 29, 2014
Pours rich dark amber with stiff beige head. Fruity banana, boiled sweets in the aroma. This is reproduced in the taste with some bitterness thrown in. Palate is very, very silky and not too thick with medium carbo. Alcohol is stunningly well hidden. Solid beer.

Aroma: caramel, bread and cereal malts, molasses. Appearance: dark brown, medium beige frothy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets expanding, some bitter notes coming up, caramel. Overall: nice Belgian Strong Ale. Bottle at Charlie Rockets, Bruges.

Bosbouw (1048) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
Cola-achtig uiterlijk met een volle blijvende crèmekleur kraag. Ruikt zoetig, gebrande mout, beetje chocolade en kers. Smaakt zoetig, gebrand, herfstfruit, kruidnagel. Zoete en alcohol nasmaak.
