Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Amber to light brown in color. Small off white head with good steady lacing. Nice malty aroma. Malty in flavor and on palate. Good Belgian.

A gift shared with friends. Pours amber with a frothy white head that lingers. Carmelly, toffee, malty sweetness, no hops. Smooth medium mouthfeel. A nice easy to drink Belgian Special Ale.

Nice example of a Belgian ale. Satisfyingly rounded deep complex taste. One for a winter evening in as a warming ale.

This beer pulled an amazing 180 on me when I had it with food. Alone, I was unimpressed, but with a meal its slight sweetness became crisp and very enjoyable. If you've tried this one and found it less than perfect, try it again with a hearty meal.

Nice light brown to rust pour. Hard to characterize this ale. Nice laced head with a sweet malty aroma. I think I like their Karmeliet so much I was expecting something different. It’s a fine ale with sweet malt and dark fruit tones. Nice mouth feel. Enjoyable, but not extraordinary. Balanced but a bit thinner than other Belgian strong ales.

Al naso dolce, maltata, con notevoli e invitanti sentori fruttati (uva, ciliege) e floreali. Al palato la prima cosa che si nota un intenso sapore di caramello con sentori di miele, poi con la degustazione salgono ti tono il malto e il fruttato. Il retrogusto piacevolmente amarognolo.

Un poco espumosa al principio pero luego un sabor dulce agradable con un buen sabor final. La debería haber tomado más fria ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maybe,Dark red brown pour with a foamy head. Lots of vanilla/chocolate caramel syrupy flavors. Plum pudding. Rasin pie. Pecan pralines. Rich red syrupy goodness. Tastes like a meal, or at least a rich desert. Still has a nice delicate smoothness.

Clear amber colored beer with a soft flavour that brings to mind nougat and hints of caramilized bananas.

Very rich and heady. Not one that I would drink often. No hop. Drank from a glass and bottle. Glass heavily preffered. Dough, woody
