Dark red pour with a bit of lacing head. Very fruity estery aroma dominated with dark fruits and a bit of spice. The taste was sweet but with more bitterness than I had expected. Overall made for a great beer though

Bottled 0,7 liter. Appearance - thick light brown, also long lasting head, color - brown red. Slightly visible fizz. Smells like roasted, caramel, a little bit fruity. Taste is like a crust of a bread, medium sweet and later bitter, alcohol is felt, too. Palate is soft and felt tickling on the roof of the mouth. Aftertaste: bitter, long lasting.

Paladares (69) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 6, 2015
Botella. Color marrón turbio. Dos dedos de espuma, manteniendo una fina capa. Aroma a vainilla, chocolate y recuerdo a pasas. En boca resulta densa. Muy compleja en sabor. Se encuentra la madera. Muy licorada. Tiene un regusto muy alcohólico y con final amargo. No es mi estilo preferido aunque cumple.

It pours amber with a full head and plenty of lacing. It has aromas of yeast, a bit of leather, and floral elements. It has flavors that are sweet with yeast, leather, and spicy notes. It has a bitter finish with warming.

sweetstuff (3) - Piqua, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015 does not count
Best before date 05/2011. Lot 1892 07 37. An ’8’ per the label, but no pabv listed there. Brewed and bottled by Duvel Moorgaat NV, Puurs, Belgium. On opening there is a delicate sweet white bread/orange spray, with mild caramel backing, pouring dark, with a higher head than some other Belgian Abbey Ales I could name. There is a roast coffee/anise entry, with what may be leather and a little staleness midpalate, but wait and see. Full bitter.burnt chocolate finish. Sort of a triangle--starts fine, and ends broad, perhaps a tad clunky. Malt seems scorched and the sweetness tails off; if it weren’t so bitter, I’d think it’d be short on the finish. Score is as is, at 4 plus years of age, perhaps 6. Needs to be revisited with a fresh bottle.
