iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2007
Dark brown with red hues and a dense head. Somewhat sweet, very spicy, malty, with toffee and caramel, a bit peaty, slightly hoppy & somewhat smoked, dry, yeasty aroma. Very balanced taste. Leans to the dry side. Lots of spice (cinnamon/pepper), raisins, butterscotch, cookiedough and vanilla. Great long lasting finish, very nice smooth smoky malt & vanilla. Low/medium carbonation, solid mouthfeel - very thick and substantial. Very good.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2004
Pours a cloud reddish brown, a nice big off-white head. The aroma is sweet, spices. Malty flavour with caramel notes, recedes to a finish of grassy, snow-pea hops. Lively carbonation, yet smooth and full bodied. Good beer. Bottle.

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - JUN 9, 2010
Color mogano schiuma bianca alta e persistente, al naso è complessa con note di malto, erbe, lieviti, formaggio. Al palato all’impatto rimane un pò ruvida ma intrigante, dolce ma non troppo; sa di malto, alcol, pane, noci, erbe. Non è il mio stile preferito ma rimane una birra molto interessante.

birraiolo (229) - ITALY - JUL 30, 2013
Bottiglia da 33cl. Color ambrato molto scuro con riflessi prugna, si presenta con un buon cappello di schiuma fine color nocciola di buona persistenza. Al naso sentori di malto e frutta matura che si ripetono al palato.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Typical pleasant Belgian dark ale scent -- plums, dates, malt. Taste is both sweet and sour, but not strong in either. Low carbonation, nice chewy mouthfeel. A pleasure.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Chewy caramel color with a white, quickly fading head. Sweet, floral aroma. Sweet at the start, moving to warm with a slight alcohol flavor at the mid. Full flavored. Spice, cloves, and simple sugar.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Seven-fiddy ml. Pours walnut brown with a big sudsy head. Sweet malts dominate the aroma, but spices - cinnamon and nutmeg, especially - poke through. Initially burnt sugar-sweet and figgy, but finishes dry and peaty. Lingering EtOH. Mouthfeel is delightfully fizzy. A little of this goes quite a long ways, but tasty in moderation.

Jeroenhensen (225) - Dongen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2014
Afgelopen week gedronken, want het was toch net herfst. Heerlijk zacht donker bier, wat makkelijk weg drinkt.

garth_86 (225) - EDMONTON, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
Pours a hazy, copper brown. Aroma is fruit, raisins, some alcohol. Taste is a smooth 8% with a dark fruit and alcohol burn.
