Bottle - Dark brown with little head. Aroma of cream and chocolate and berries, unexpected and nice. Flavor is a tad sour and bitter, with notes of chocolate, yeast and toasted grain. Mouthfeel is nice with good carbonation.

On tap at wine 101. Nice white lace easy drinking brown. Belgium taste is upfront (with almost a bubble gum flavor) easy drinking and enjoyable.

Sdaniel90 (333) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. Clear ruby/chesnut with a thick tan head and epic lacing. Deep fruity aroma, with strong hints of roasted caramel and sour cherries, as well as fig, firewood and alcohol. Heavy and robust, with moderate to high carbonation. Light sweetness and bitterness, with a subtle but strong alcohol finish. Rich and warming, yet somewhat monotonic and overly carbonated.

Percy0103 (126) - MEXICO - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. A dark chestnut beer with a big foamy head and beautiful lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, alcohol, caramel and maybe a hint of red fruits. Taste is bitter with a slightly alcoholic finish. Medium to high carbonatation and some astringency. The strongest part of this beer is the beginning and then it loses some strength, but not completely.
