This beer poured a copper amber color and formed a nice bubbly white head. A good amount of tiny bubble carbonation is present. An aroma of malt and cinnamon. A flavor of malt and caramel, with a decent amount of sweetness to a medium body. Slightly astrigent finish.

Draft at Howells and Hood downtown Chicago into a stumpy Tulip glass. Excellent ruby/burnt orange color. Distinctive sweet Kwak smell And taste linger long after the sip. Nice, sweeter Belgian than most but not overbearing. Very unique and likable. Might not be able to have more than one because of the sweetness, but that’s just me.

Medium transparent brown, strong beige head. Definite abbey cellar-dubbel on the nose. Taste - warming alcohol mixed with very distinct caramel malt and some cellar notes. Nice.

Sweet, yet not cloying, and characterized by interesting notes of spices-to-be-named. Everything about this is classicly Belgian: full bouquet of yeast and spices, lovely boastful head, pretty dark ale colors and supremely drinkable. Something about those spice notes keeps me coming back.

It’s nice! And the carriage glass it’s served in is ace. If you fancy strong Belgian ales you’ll love it. If you don’t, why do you have a rate beer account in the first place? Exactly.

Poured into the traditional mini yard glass, on tap. A finger of head comprised of largish bubbles retreated slowly to leave sparse lacing. Appearance is a nice amber with constantly streams of bubbles. Nose is heavy with malt - sweet, slightly smoky, bananas. First taste is quite sweet with significant alcohol. Hops are floral and balance the sweetness well, especially on subsequent sips. Banana flavor is very mellow and barely noticeable. Mouthfeel consists of significant bubbles without much aftertaste. Quite smooth. Alcohol hangs in the back of the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There’s lemon and banana on the nose, soft, sweet, slightly funky and fruity flavours in the mouth. A bit oily afterwards, and fades a bit too quickly, but quite delicious all up.

Fruits,caramel, yeast, malts and especially sugar is the main characteristics of this beer. Nice full body and hints of alcohol. I like it alot, but i think is so sweet, more than the ususal standarts.

750 ml bottle. Pours a brilliant amber with a course off-white head. Fruit and spice notes in the nose with a hint of alcohol. Medium body with sweetness up front followed by a somewhat tart finish.

Dark Cobber. Whit foam. Malt sweetness to the nose.Highly carbonated. A oak aged character to it mixed with malt. A bit of bitterness.
