Mousse puissante formant un grand collet beige. Liquide d’un beau brun limpide. Belle effervescence. Arômes de caramel et de fruits séchés. En bouche, l’amertume et le côté poivré agresse le palet.

superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 8/2014. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, toast, brown bread, molasses, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness/tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dubbel style. All around nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Rugamu (103) - SPAIN - JUL 5, 2014
Magnífica cerveza, con tonos afrutados, un color oscuro intenso y un aroma muy penetrante. En boca entra muy suave, dejando un sabor intenso por mucho tiempo. En resumen, gran cerveza que repetiré las veces que sean necesarias.

sinte (315) - Udine, ITALY - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle 0.33L. Slightly hazy, brown body with reddish nuances; large, frothy, tan head, fully lasting with nice lacing. Moderate malty (caramel, light roasted) aroma, with notes of red fruits (cherry), spices, alcohol, light coffee and licorice. Moderate-to-heavy sweet flavour, with light bitterness in the finish. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation; light alcoholic warming in the finish.

janubio (390) - SPAIN - JUN 23, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Brown colour with red hints when watching to the light. Huge dense head that lasts forever and marks a good lace on the glass. Smell of chocolate, dark fruits, spices, caramel, some wood character, like a port or sherry wine. Medium body, sticky and creamy palate, good carbonation. Taste of chocolate or cocoa, dark fruits, spices, caramel. A bit of an alcoholic finish.

Dummi (5) - - JUN 20, 2014 does not count
Cerveza de abadía, con una cremosa espuma de poro amplio y de poca continuidad pero de gran belleza y coronación. Cerveza de tono rojizo, muy turbio y poca burbuja. Con el aroma a cerveza clásica y añeja, y amplios matices frutales. En boca es suave, ligeramente dulce al comienzo, el en trascurso del paladar de aprecia ligero chocolate y café oscuro y un escondido toque frutal no muy perceptible. La finalización deja un poso amargo agradable conjuntando perfectamente con el dulzor inicial, y gracias a lo bien carbonatada acepta también los momentos refrescantes, pidiendo más sorbos.
