SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2009
750ml corked and caged bottle: Beautiful golden pour with an inch-thick head that really lasts. The aroma is very spicy, yeasty. Sweet malts, mostly sweet bread and caramel, work off the esthery yeast well. Very light and drinkable, but with a nice warm finish.

kaserov (224) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 24, 2016
Color ámbar oscuro (casi granate), translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación a tope (tubo de burbujas desde el fondo de la copa a la superficie). Aroma a madera, levadura y algo de alcohol. Simple pero placentero. Sabor dulce (mucho, así que al que no le guste...), maltoso, con final ligeramente alcohólico. Mucho cuerpo. Muy interesante, aunque no llegue a las expectativas que puede crearse uno. Lo verdaderamente interesante es lo peligrosa que es, pues se bebe en 4 tragos sin problema y los 8,4% pueden pasar factura rápido. Cuidadín. No la bebáis a 5 ni a 6º porque se captan menos cosas que a unos 8 o 9º.

On tap. Ruby- brownish colour. Thin white head. Caramel, berries, toffee in the aroma. Caramel at first. Dark fruits, hints of berries. Slightly spicy, caramelly finish. Spicy, slightly alcocholy notes in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated, quite drinkable brew.

Banzale (63) - FRANCE - OCT 13, 2016
Acheter à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur cuivré foncé tire sur le brun. La mousse est inexistante . Au nez épicé et malté, bonne carbonnisation. En bouche c’est en effet malté, caramélisé à souhait , note vanillé douce , malté comme il faut , le tout sur une point de sucre. Fin de bouche douxceet moelleuse Bien ! Car c’est un grand classique dans son genre.

DocJitsu (1715) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Pours an amber color with a large, well-retaining, khaki colored head. Has a hand-soapy nose. Notes of caramel and clove as well. Flavors resemble the nose.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2016
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez élégant sur des notes fruitées, épicées et maltées. Bouche fraîche et fruitée, milieu de bouche un peu creux, belle finale fruitée. Une classique bien faite.

one of the stranger belgians I’ve had, but delightfully so. it’s spice complex and dark body separate it from its clan.
