330 ml bottle @ Restobières, Brussels. Not too sure about the style here, please change if any other thoughts. It’s surely a brown ale, but definitively Belgium style, not exactly a dubbel either, so the more general term Belgium Strong Ale is the closest I get. Brown in colour as already mentioned, quite unclear with a rather small beige head. Aroma has sweet malt, candy sugar, spices and Belgium yeast. Flavour is sweet and spicy with candy sugar and yeast. Fine and balanced body, sweet in aftertaste, still a bit too much yeast here. Rather balanced and alcohol is dangerously well hidden. Smooth and yeasty.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Grosse bière noire épaisse. Ça sent l'alcool principalement. Nez café. Gros malt, finale épicée, poivrée.

mjs (5200) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2015
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Bier-Bier, 20150603) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had malts, chocolate, fruitiness and yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were yeast, fruitiness, malts, chocolate, sweetness, berries and bitterness. Aftertaste had fruitiness, berries and bitterness. A surprising brew: the ABV was rather well hidden and malts were strongly present. The berries in both the aroma and the taste disturbed a bit.

Dark brown with snall ellow head. Sweet and malt aroma. Sour-sweet taste with fruity notes mixed with moderate roasted malt bitterness with coffee notes. Roasted bitterness lasts in the aftertaste.

fkoolen (561) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 15cl taster at Brugs Bierfestival. Chestnut brown, just a few bubbles as a head. Chocolate, clove, caramel in the sweet creamy roasted malts, slight acidity and bitterness. Lingering wine-like finish. No carbonation, medium body. Re-rate with bottle at home: no head, nice dark brown colour. Complex sweet, spicy and slightly bitter tones; dry finish. Needs more body.

(Millevertus La Papesse) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tall tulip, ABV 9.69% Chestnut brown colour on the body, huge beige head, very thick and also kind of creamy, with excellent retention, leaving medium lacing behind. Aroma of red fruits, milky chocolate, toffee, maybe some berries. Nice taste, caramel, coffee, chocolate, red fruits, toffee, alcohol, light nuts, prunes, dates. Medium body, good carbonation, a bit sticky on the palate. Really tasty beer, great surprise for me, and for that price definitely a must-buy.
