Dark Brown pour for 33cl bottle. Tan head. Fruity aromas. Complex taste, notes of licorice, hop dryness dominating, roasted coffee. Not a beer to fit a specific style. Interesting brew.

rayaron (347) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle 750ml. Cloudy brown with big beige head and lots of sediments. Malty aroma, some cherry notes, yeasty, caramel. Sweet malty flavor, cherry, syrupy, quite alcoholic, sweet-sour finish. Moderate carbonation, medium to full-bodied.

0,33L bottle, BB 10.2016. Pours very dark ruby with light brown head. The head stays. Aroma is malt, dark fruits, caramel. Flavor is sweet, malt, dark fruits, caramel, some spicy notes and yeast. Finish is fruits and caramel. It feels very light for 8% abv. Overall: great brew.

lbianchi66 (30) - FRANCE - DEC 13, 2014
Belle robe noisette, légèrement ambrée et limpide Très florale Arrière goût de prune, miel et caramel. Longue en bouche. Très bon équilibre amer/sucré. Je recommande !

minihame2 (215) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2014
Murky dark brown colour and a faint reminiscent of a white yellowish head. Aroma not very strong, malts, some caramel and grassy notes. Taste fairly bitter and acidic. Texture is on the lighter side but the carbonation makes it better as it’s sharp at first and then softens towards the end. A bit mixed feelings about this one.

Colour is between red en light brown. Bittersweet taste with some plum and raisin details. Good beer, but not d’Achouffes greatest work though.

Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with tanned head. Aroma of grains, bread, honey, raisins, dried plums, and Belgian yeast. Sweet taste with some fruitiness; dried fruit, malt, Belgian yeast.

ESPh (83) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Picked up a four pack based on the rating. Pours reddish brown with a white head. Feint aroma of malt, cherry, yeast. Taste has malt, dried dark cherry, maybe a little plum with crisp carbonation. Not terrible but definitely overrated.
