Bottle that I picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgium, consumed 01.05.10 Can’t understand how I missed adding this rating, but miss it I did. Pours murky brown with a dense fluffy off-white lasting head. Soft in the mouth with some candy sugar, there is a rich vein of hops that hit and spice also. Very easy drinking beer and doesn’t seem like a 10.9% beer at all, good maltiness and clear distinct flavours coming through. Nice beer. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7

Probably one of my favorite beers of all time. Complex flavours but still a very balanced beer and extremely good beer.

Grzesiek79 (3174) - Radom, POLAND - APR 16, 2013
Jesli chodzi o smak to piwo jest rewelacyjne, wspanialy zapach kakao wyczuwalne i jest to wszystko intensywne. Smak boski wytrawno slodki ale kakaowy, w tele nuta wanilli, troche alkoholowy finisz. Kolor gleboko czerwony z ciemnymi refleksami. Minusem jest zastosowanie korka syntetycznego, ktorego nie spotkalem czesto w piwach belgijskich. Ale ogolnie na swieta polecam ten wyrob sezonowy.

Lilja (1571) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Smak och doft av torkad frukt, choklad, karamell, malt, humle och en aning örter. Välbalanserad, lagom söt och bra beska.
