Ruddy brown colour. Arouma is of ginger and orange. Taste is of choclate, mint, whisky. Hides the alcohol well, a very nice beer.

Loved it. The malt permeates and blends perfectly with carbonation. Not too spicy and the yeast was subdued. Loved the coppery color. Highly recommended.

Mr_Vogel (55) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
What began really exciting, turned out to be a big disappointment. The presentation in the special glass is great, but from here it goes downhill. Though pretty, the glass blocks out most of the aroma, making the beer smell musty. The impressive head disappears too quickly. Malts and caramel sweetness dominate, but not in a particularly impressive manner. Lacks balance as well. This beer is definitely more show and less go.

Colour: Dark amber with a firm head. Nose: Malty sweetness, nuts, chocolate, and fruits (raisin, plum). Flavours: Candy sugar, malt (biscuits, bread), herbs, preserved fruits (apricot, prunes). Finish: Long, mellow, slightly bitter. Complex. Verdict: Very fine Belgian ale. Certainly lives up to its reputation.

Gran cerveza, dulzona como pocas cosa que ha mucha gente no le gusta y con una graduación alta que luego no se presenta en su sabor.

mooi amber kleurig met een zachte smaak, je proeft helemaal niet dat het 8,5% alc. heeft.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Heerlijk biertje. Nougat pallet met een caramel aromatische afdronk. Iets hoppig met volle afdronk.

Clear, amber colour with a huge head formation, very long lasting off white. Aroma of fruit, sweet malts and a hint of spiciness. Very complex flavours consisting of fruits, hops and sweet malts. Kind of sweet finish with fairly light bitterness. Warming alcohol characters. The brother of Tripel Karmeliet.
