First off the story alone for the glass is great. Pours an amber color with a white head. The nose has hints of a sweetness, malt and apricot. The flavor is a sweet malty raisin, a touch of stone fruit/plum, toffee. Overall a really delicious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hamirubi (203) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2015
Een tegenvaller qua aroma - doet slechts denken aan kelder. Met een amber, oranje aroma, helder-wazige gladheid en jammer genoeg minimaal wit schuim. De smaak valt beter mee: medium zoet, licht bitter. Het palet: lichte body, dunne textuur, gemiddeld koolzuur, abrupte afdronk.

Roublard (202) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 15, 2013
Tapped in Los v Oslo. Glass is really interesting. But the beer itself is good as well. Light brown color, thin yellowish not really stable head. Aroma of malt and caramel. You can smell some points of alcohol as well - the beer is pretty strong. Bitter and medium finish, a lot of alcohol in the taste. Nice one, although a bit strong.

William (202) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2002
Excellent belgian ale. Beautiful colour. Has a medium sweet flavour to it, not as sweet as La Chouffe. Don’t forget to take the glass and holder home with you.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Sweet, roasted notes are the dominant flavors of this thin-bodied beer. Enjoyable, but the alcohol is very noticeable.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Dark orange color, just barely offwhite head with lots of big bubbles on bottom and egg white tiny bubbles on the top. Aroma of orange, caramel, yeast, dried fruit; similar taste with creamy finish, spice, flowers, a bit of alcohol, lots of dried fruit, quite dry.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2005
Not bad. Has a bit of butterscotch and yeast in the nose. Pours out to a cloudy amber-gold color with finely beaded white head. Starts out with some toffee-like malty sweetness and ends with a light alcohol sensation. A few light fruit and spice notes, but nothing strong.

Tognetta (197) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 14, 2015
Coloração whisky escura, olfato caramelizado, alcoólica. Paladar: licorosa, adocicada, amadeirada. Aftertaste duradouro, maltado. Muito bem equilibrada.
