Aroma maltado de pão-doce, nozes e uva-passa. Sabor inicial de frutas escuras (ameixa e uva-passa) e nozes com picardia refrescante e um final seco, com álcool muito bem inserido e levemente amargo. Retrogosto maltado de frutas escuras muito agradável. Corpo médio e alta carbonatação. Alta drinkability. Obs: degustação no copo específico faz a diferença.

tbonde (289) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2015
33cl bottle@Belgian hotel bar in Kwak glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours almost orange with off white head in the peculiar glass, which did actually do a kwak sound at the appropriate moment. Aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruit. Taste is predominantly malty and sweet, with caramel and spice kept in check by fresher, fruitier notes. Aftertaste full, malty and hoppy, signalling that this is not just a gimmick beer but a genuinly good and serious Belgian brew.

MikeBeermaster (289) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 13, 2015
W aromacie nuty likierowo-drożdżowe z lekkimi zacięciami owoców takich jak wiśnia, czy cytrusy. Piwo ciemnobursztynowe. Piana nietrwała, jednak lacing pozostaje. W smaku typowa drożdżowość dla Belgów, w/w likierowość i nuty owoców podbite alkoholem (coś a’la nalewka). Piwo bardzo bogate w smaku. Dla fanów mocnych i cierpkich trunków jak znalazł.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2015 Clear mahogany. Spicy aroma, notes of bay leaf, vanilla and hazelnut. Sweet cloves flavour with a bit of bitterness. Long finish and satisfying structure.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Perhaps I didn’t pour this correctly as there was a lot of yeasty flakes floating in this. I drank it anyway as it tasted OK. Caramel at first sip, smoothing out to make a high alcoholic finish. Nice, I’ll have to try this again as I think the flakes of yeast subtracted from the brew.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2003
In mine I noticed hints of oats and some what of a bread like taste? The body was almost a light chocolate color, and I agree it was slighty sweet with a citrusy/dry finish. Very smooth and quite drinkable, this was a very good ale.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Pours a dark amber, decent sized white head for 8% ABV, nice fine lacing. Sweetness and fruit in the aroma. Very sweet, with a nicely done alcohol finish.
