Bottle from Broom Hall Inn, near Stratford upon Avon. Colour is deep copper with an off-white head. Aroma is malty sweetness and that I like with Belgian beer. Taste is more towards the malt, caramel, with the alcohol not noticeable.

Poured to crazy wooden handled contraption :-) amber hue with creamy off white head. Aroma cloves, sulphur, banana, esters, caramel, Belgian esters. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with CO2 bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and good carbonation. Not overwhelming but fun.

Zarkam (374) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2014
750ml bottle from Tallinn, clear dark amber colour, large frothy mostly vanishing off-white head, fair lacing. Heavily malty aroma of caramel, fruit and nuts, light peppery hops in the background, moderate yeastiness. Taste is initially quite sweet with a bit of acidity, turning into a moderately sweet and slightly bitter finish with a slightly alcoholic and acetic feel. Full body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Quite a pleasant ale with some aroma depth, pretty average among the Belgian ones I’ve had though.

Amber with head that dissapperas... Aroma and taste: fruits, lots of caramel, honey. Maybe too much sweet for me, but good beer.

I loved everything about this beer, the rich dark mahogany colour, the malty caramel, raisin flavours. It seemed really well attenuated, would definitely drink this again.
