F: huge lasting, off-white. C: dark reddish to dark. A: quite vinous at the beginning, malty, dark fruity, some chocolate, toffee, hint of hops/yeast. T: very lively carbonation, malty, fruity sweet, sweet plums, alcohol warming, chocolate, hint of coffee, molasses, some spicy, peppery notes, hint of decent bitterness, very good but not as complex as I expected, worth to try.

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Dark, almost toffee pour. Big off white head. Little bit of lacing. Aroma of slight roasted grain. Though very subdued. Some dark fruit. Taste is a sweet dry version of the same.

BBE F03/11 Pours dark brown with a hint of garnet. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Rich nose of dark fruit (figs, plum), chocolate and cherries. Medium body with a creamy texture. Perfect carbonation with just enough effervescence in the middle to cut the creamy texture and a finely bubbled prickly finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. Intensity is reasonable, rather complex and perfectly balanced. The 12% alcohol is completely covered, which few beers accomplish. It begins with a slightly bitter dark chocolate note that gains sweetness. Chocolate yields to dark fruit as the middle approaches with fig and plum slowly taking on a cherry note. As the fruit fades, a very mild bitterness emerges along with a light prune coupled with a hint of oak. As it warms, a slightly tannic aspect is evident. The finish is a slow fade that begins as chocolate and ends as prune.

750ml bottle, 2012. Deep dark garnet brown color with a very long lasting beige head. Overripe fruits, prune, sherry, chocolate, and Belgium. The flavor makes it clear that this is a Belgium. Sweet dark malts, chocolatey and fruity, lots of raisin and prune. Some warmth on the palate with full body and lively carbonation. Overall an enjoyable Belgium!

Bottle poured at Seattle IBF. 5 oz pour, which was plenty. Pours a dark reddish brown color with with a short bubble head. Dark fruit, raisin aroma. Thick body, dark fruit, raisin and leather flavor. A little strange on the flavor, but itís not bad by any means. Drinks as heavy as advertised. Good stuff.

visionthing (4778) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2015
75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours dark brown with a modest, tanned head. Malty aroma with chocolate, dark fruits, notes of raisins, yeast and hints of liqueur. Fairy sweet with medium flavour intensity, some chocolate and a light acidity and bitterness. Tasty and quite drinkable, but hardly exceptional.
