ghendrix (92) - Cardiff, WALES - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle in Porter’s Cardiff, served in the Kwak glass (look like a pretentious pillock drinking from this in a rammed bar to be honest, but ho hum). Amber-brown in colour, nice big tan head. Has toffee, roasted malts, chocolate, cereal, raisin all there. Alcohol is present too. Sweet taste and an almost sticky mouthfeel, finish is toffee, molasses. This is one sweet beer. Medium-heavy body. An experience.

Rien de plus à dire que les autres commentaires. Excellente ambrée, avec un verre hors norme!

Gout typiquement belge. Fruité, sucré, facile à boire. Pas vraiment original en gout. L’unique intérêt de la bière réside dans le verre. Bof.

12-nov-2010 33cl bottle. Deep orange color with a medium brownish head. Pretty sweet taste, with a little bitterness near the end. Very good beer. I still have to try this in the proper Kwak glass, but that’s for another time.

Sweet amber/copper beer. Altough it is not my favorite type, i like it more then triple karmeliet. Carbonated but it disappear quite quick!

Eyrish (89) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
pours dark amber, bit cloudy. Medium head with lingering lace. medium carbonation. Malty sweet nose hard to describe the smells present, but certainly malt forward. You can tell its a strong beer, alcohol is eminent. Not my favorite style and that proves true in its offering

Amber to brown beer with good looking off white head. Aroma is caramel like and smooth malty too. It has a round aroma and some hints of fruit. Taste is also rounded with a good malty and caramely character. In the aftertaste there is a slight alcohol burn.
