This is a good beer and quantity, very full flavor with good hops balance. Evident bitterness in true aged Belgian fashion, but it is not too bitter to enjoy, sweet smooth tones still prevail. Has a bit of a harder taste than something like a 90 minute IPA.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear dark red with an average off-white head. Aroma is caramel, plum, dried fruits, licorice, spices. Taste is sweet malty caramel with a touch of licorice and fruity sweetness, light bitter, spicy, some alcohol warmth and raisin sweetness in the finish with a smooth rounded bitterness.

Nice dark color with tiny head. Smells Belgian, same as it tastes. The palate is also nice and bubbly. And of course a remarkably nice alcohol level. Overall one of my favorite non Belgian Belgian ales!

nice color, faint hint of fruits in the nose. The taste has notes of malt and very mild fruit notes. Balanced/decent

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initial sweetness settles into a nice full-bodied finish. Dark mahogany color with barely a hint of reddish hue. Little to no lacing but a nice thick head.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Avery Strong Ale Festival. Appearance: finger of khaki head, amber color. Aroma: Belgian yeast, fruity, caramel. Palate: refreshing, average carbonation. Taste: very malty sweet. Overall, the aroma and appearance are a little misleading as towards the malt heavy taste to this one, unique and exciting.

12 oz bottle. Smells good and tastes great. Nice, full boddies, and rich. I don’t know if I would be able to have more than one or two of them. Delicious but a little heavy in the gut.

Poured from a bottle. Deep amber colour, tiny disappearing head, sweet malty aroma with a hint of coffee, smooth for such a strong beer with a warming aftertaste. A very, very tasty beer.

12 oz bottle into glass. Pours an amber/brown color and it had no head by the time I got it. Aroma and taste are fruit and slight alcohol. Very nice tasting.
