tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2003
A nice light brown pour with a huge head to it. Aroma of toffee, raisins, and clove. A complex balance hits your mouth with estery flavors, malt, and hops balancing out well. Slightly alcoholic on the tongue and kind of a powerful one to drink by yourself.

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.

Deep brown with a tan head. Light smell of oats and slightly sweet aroma. Notes of caramel and a sweet body to the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen2 (687) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
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

This was the first good beer I ever had. Dark molasses. Sweet finish. A bit alcohol-y.
