popkow (301) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2008
This product of Belgium poured a steady head of brown ale with a hue fo red. Brown ale touched with acholic notes and maybe one would say nears a scothc ale. An earthy coffee taste resonates.

molly75 (300) - (Madrid - España), ITALY - APR 28, 2011
SCHIUMA: color panna, buona presenza, media finezza e persistenza COLORE: marrone scuro con riflessi rossastri, velata INTENSITA’ / FINEZZA / AROMA abbastanza profumata, dominata da frutta matura, caramello e zucchero con un fondo floreale di lieviti.GUSTO / RETROGUSTO / PERSISTENZA tendenzialmente dolce, si ripropongono sapori fruttati e zuccherati, ben sostenuti dai malti e scossi dai lieviti tipici belga. Qualche luppolo compare come bilanciamento. CORPO / CARBONATAZIONE / CONSISTENZA morbida in bocca, ben carbonata e sorprendentemente leggera nonostante gli 8 % che passano quasi inavvertiti.Birra con struttura, ben confezionata e dinamica in bocca, sebbene dominata da toni dolci, ma per nulla noiosi. Lieviti di qualità che danno quel pizzico di fruttato acidulo. Mi manca un confronto diretto con una vera scotch ale, tuttavia la sento nell’anima più belga che scozzese: si riconoscono maggiormente i contributi dei lieviti belga che di corposi malti tostati.

mnoud (297) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2012
750ml bottle in Corsendonk tulip glass. Pours dark with an active foamy head which recedes quickly but leaves 1/2 a finger of foam on top which adheres and laces considerably. Aroma is Belgium malty yeasty smell but with sourness. Taste has that Belgian dryness. Very slight subtle alcohol bite, alcohol is otherwise well hidden, slight alcohol aftertaste. As it warms up and your palate gets accustomed the sweetness and flavors are more obvious. Tasty.

RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Pours very dark amber. Thick, consistent, one finger head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, clove, and raisins. Fairly well balanced with med/high carbonation and a bitter finish. An excellent dark ale.

langeveld12 (292) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
Head is average, off-white, frothy and slowly diminishing. Body is hazy copper. Aroma contains malts (bread, molasses, grain), hops (citrus fruits, spruce), yeasts (leather) and raisin, grape, spices, brown sugar, cola and forest fruits. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light bitter, followed by sweet and light bitter and finishing in light acidic and bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Enjoyable.

GlassBrass440 (289) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 11, 2015
Pours a hazy brown with slight tan head. No lacing. Spicy and herbal aromas of mint, anise, and clove. Flavours bring caramel, anise, corriander, vanilla, and sassafras. Very high carbonation pinches the tongue. Finish leaves a cola like feel, slightly sticky with lingering sassafras.

emartell (289) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAY 14, 2013
Aroma agradable y a la vez complejo. Las notas principales son a esteres frutales, principalmente a uvas, ciruelas, frutas rojas y especias. Ligeramente se perciben aromas a levaduras. En cuanto a apariencia color obscuro con ligeros destellos marrones y una alta turbiedad. Carbonatación media, esmupa abundante pero de baja retención en virtud de su potencia alcohólica y alta sedimentación en el interior del liquido. En boca suave, aterciopelada, dulce y potencia alcoholica. Al paladar es una cerveza compleja igual que en sus aromas. Se percobe suave y ligeramente dulce. Se perciben notas a frutas rojas y quizá algo de especias. En general una muy buena cerveza. A pesar de su fuerza alcohólica no es agresiva al paladar. Su inicio es suave y algo dulce, sin embargo el equilibrio es muy bueno, con un final seco que equilibra el sabor dulce.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
750ml bottle from the SAQ. Pours dark brown with a voluptuous beige head. Aroma of dark fruits and roasted/caramel malt and yeast. Some floral hops. Flavour is sweet with minimal bitterness with lots of sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden. I don’t mind the excessive sweetness and lack of substantial bitterness. Highly enjoyed this beer.
