Long lasting tan head with good lacing. brown, earthy looking body. the aroma is also quite earthy with just a hint of malty sweetness peeking out. the mouthfeel is full but the carbonation is really freaking high. i cant believe how much carbonation there is in this beer, for me it takes away from the flavor of this beer. it is too lively on my tongue and i just cant get a good solid taste. what i am getting is a light malt flavor with spicy hop flavoring and a bit of hop bittering at the end of the taste.

Looks nice, Dark orange-brown color with a big dense white head. Dark fruits, spice, chocolate and hops in the flavor and aroma (which are similar). Some vanilla in the aroma. Something metallic in the flavor.

Tap@Ølbaren. Brown with a rudy twist. Beige dissapearing head. Pleasant aroma with notes of sweetness, spices and yeast. Soft and fullbodied with complex balanced taste and a warm aftertaste.

750ml bottle from SAQ out of chalice. pours a murky dark brown that leaves a small, quickly dissipating head. aroma is pretty sweet, with dark fruits and molasses. taste is spicy, bready, lots of darker fruits and yeast, sweet malty finish. very carbonated, feels nice on the palate. a very good beer, my favourite from d’ Achouffe.

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.
