UXO (148) - CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours cola brown with a fat finger of medium dense tan head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate lacing. Nose is dark stone fruit, raisins, dark malt, brown sugar. Taste leads out with dark malt, giving way to medium bitterness, with peppery spiciness. Mouth feel is surprisingly light, with sustained lively carbonation and mild warming. Very similar to the La Chouffe in hop character, body, and carbonation, with the major difference being the dark malt, as opposed to the light malt of the La Chouffe. These two beers are pretty much identical otherwise, with the fundamental difference being the choice between light and dark malt.

Parfums typiques des brunes belges. Celle ci est douce et chaleureuse plutôt agréable. Mais on est en terrain bien connu, la dégustation est agréable mais aucune originalité ne la rendra mémorable.

Lekker donker biertje. Beetje zoet en genoeg alcohol. Zoals meer zeiden. Chocola en toffee.

Cloudy pale brown. Short beige head and lacing. Aroma of dark caramel, berries and prunes. Fruity, balanced and refreshing taste. Good drinkability.

Dark brown, nice body, but between caramel, chocolate and toffee there is a lot of alchool harsh taste!

darioklc (506) - Karlovac, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange hue with a thin, 1-finger, white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a wispy lace. Creamy and spicy Belgian yeast flavor with a citrus background and hints of hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. Excellent beer
