COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a tribute to two great Belgian breweries. It’s a strong amber ale brewed with loads of candi sugar and fermented with yeast from Westvleteren and De Dolle Brouwers.

cola color with nice head and some lacing from the bottle. Certainly a big beer with lots of fruits and some port notes but too sweet for my taste.

With a nutty aroma and a dark brown complexion this imitation Belgian Ale has all the qualities but only half the flavor of a true Belgian ale. A flavorful Ale with a long lasting palate that does wonders for Danish thoughts on beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1447) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Pours a deep dark root beer color with a robust tan head and aggressive Belgian lacing. The fragrance is sweet malts and hard Christmas candy. The taste is complex. Initially there is a rush of sweetness which replaced quickly by a dark roasted taste and hints of dark fruit. There is a slight bitter aftertaste. The mouth feel is full with a good balance of carbonation. Enjoyable, but not one to quaff down quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2010
Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Hazy, dark orange body with a diminishing white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty with acidity. Flavor is malt, fruit, quite sweet and some acidity keeping the balance. Very nice actually without being fantastic. Fine, balanced body.

Bottle. Thanks Ungstrup. Vintage ??? Pours unclear orange with no head. Heavy fruity and vinous nose with a lot of oxidation. Dusty flavor with fruit and caramel. Medium bodied. Past it’s prime but you get the feeling of how good this is when fresh!
