UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 Tulip glass, in Belgrade. Pine on nose. Short beige head, rich citrus, cherry also strong, light caramel. Nice red-brown amber color. Translucent and bright, best powerful carbonating. Classic beer luxury for everyday use and never start to be boring.

The main reason which convinced me to drink this beer is the very funny glass, which is also part of my collection at home! :) I donít like it so much. The caramel taste didnít make me so happy as well as other beers of this style. Anyway, it is drinkable sometime! :)

Padchenko (277) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 2, 2014
330ml, 8.4%. Dark ale with small head when poured that disappears quickly. Sweet and strong. Barley malt and hops are dominant flavours. Enjoyable

got it at a bar in brugge mostly because of curiosity - the glass is the coolest thing about this. the whole time i thought i was drinking an amber ale and not a belgian strong, it was good though, perhaps a little too sweet, but a nice change of pace from other belgian beers

Bottle. Hazy reddish-amber with a small head. Aroma is bready caramel malt. Flavor is basically sweet. Medium feel, average carbonation, small aftertaste. Decent but not spectacular.

A nice belgian style with a bit of yeast taste to it but otherwice very well balanced. A really nice non-trapist belgian!

migwell (276) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2015
Poured a 75cl several times into a tulip, a style of glass where I too frequently let the foam get way ahead of me, particularly with these Belgians. Once the suds subsided, I discovered another sweet, yeasty, fruity brew, quite delightful. Raisins, Turkish apricots and plums predominate in a complex mix of flavors. Fortunate to drink this at about 50 degrees f., a good temp to bring out the flavors. I certainly wouldnít care to make a night of drinking this, but as a treat, it is admirable.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2007
Poured a coppery gold. Initial flavour was bright and clean with caramel, orange peel, licorice/anise, coriander, and a hint of candy sugar. When yeast poured in the profile became more bitter and turbid on the taste buds.

godofsky (274) - Montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010
drank out of Kwak glass, pours an amber colour with a nice white head. bouquet of jasmine, cherries, and some caramel. taste is the same and the alcohol is well hidden. medium carbonated, and a sweet finish.
