Bottle. Copper brown, clear with a nice big light brown foam. Sweet malty aroma. Taste has nut, wood and some orange. Sour in the middle with a mild alcohol punch. Pleasant round woody aftertaste. Good solid body. Lively carbonation.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2010
330ml bottle: BBD 03.19.09. Poured a dark red/amber with a small off-white/beige head. Aroma: lots of spice & caramel, fresh fruits, malt, booze. Taste: caramel, malt, booze, mild water & spice. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Overall: good, but not that great... I want to try a fresh bottle to see if this one was just past its prime.

0.33l bottle from LCBO. Served in a tulip. Pours a transparent dark brown, with a thin off-white head, tons of carbonation. Aroma: Strong notes of caramel, malt, nuts. Faint hints of banana, vanilla. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, slightly fizzy, easy finish. Taste: Fairly sweet, slight bitterness in the finish. Very malty. Nice.

MrGGen (331) - ITALY - NOV 5, 2010
Comprata alla Basko(cosa che non ha mancato di stupirmi) in bottiglia da 33 cl. Versa di colore arancione ramato, un pò opacp con una schiuma sottile bianca. Aroma di lievito e un pò di caramello. Il gusto è altrettanto caramella e di lievito. Finale lungo,fruttato e maltato con tratti agrumati.Davvero notevole.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2011
Hazy amber wth a off-white head. Candy sugar, caramel and some light acidity in the nose. More of the same in the taste. It don’t really take off and feels too sweet for me.

Syfher (328) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle of 33cl, in a Kwak glass. Well, it’s really a rich experience. But it’s not one of the best bière Belge for sure. We’re in front of a nice blond/amber beer, with a deep colour and taste. The aroma is nice, stay long in mouth. Pretty nice head tho ! Drink it !

Passewaaij (326) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Lichtbruine kleur, bijna geen schuim. Aroma van caramel, beetje als wijn. Smaak is perfect in balans, beetje zoet, beetje bitter. Erg lekker.

lbianchi66 (325) - FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Arômes maltés bien présents : caramel, pain et biscuit. Une belle robe ambrée, presque couleur cuivre. La mousse est bien formée et tient assez bien. Goût plutôt doux et très agréable. Si elle n’était pas à 8,5°, j’en boirais des litres !
