On tap at Cheeky Monk. Pour is golden straw; perfectly clear with a small white head and great lacing. Clove, light banana, fruity esters, biscuit, straw, light corn, and grass in the aroma. Taste is biscuit and bread, with light fruity notes through the middle, ending somewhat sweet and spicy. Light body with high carbonation. Pretty good Belgian, but I was expecting a more pronounced flavor profile, still highly drinkable for such high ABV.

Pours a deep brown color with a lasting tan head. The smell is fruity, yeast, brown sugar. The taste is as it smells with a dry hoppy ending. Light/ medium in body with tight carbonation.

Picked up a four pack based on the rating. Pours reddish brown with a white head. Feint aroma of malt, cherry, yeast. Taste has malt, dried dark cherry, maybe a little plum with crisp carbonation. Not terrible but definitely overrated.

Colour is between red en light brown. Bittersweet taste with some plum and raisin details. Good beer, but not d’Achouffes greatest work though.

Pouco aroma, cor marrom intensa, sabor maltado forte e alcoólico, retrogosto com notas de café e final médio!

minihame2 (215) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2014
Murky dark brown colour and a faint reminiscent of a white yellowish head. Aroma not very strong, malts, some caramel and grassy notes. Taste fairly bitter and acidic. Texture is on the lighter side but the carbonation makes it better as it’s sharp at first and then softens towards the end. A bit mixed feelings about this one.
