Head: light beige, medium, frothy to creamy, poor to avg. retention. Colour: amber-brown, clear if poured carefully, hazy otherwise. Aroma: some floral hops upfront, but disappear in a moment; strong caramel, dried fruit, roasty, bit of alcohol. Taste: caramel, roasted, spicy, slightly bitter. Quite in the mainstream of belgian strong dark ales.

Draught at the Porter and Sons, Tel Aviv. Clear dark bronze with white head. Aroma of acetone, banana, some bubblegum too. Tastes alcoholic, some banana liquor, some raisins too. Full body, spicy, dried banana and black pepper finish and alcoholic aftertaste. Served in a proper glass sans the wooden handle because Israel.

wozap (100) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Pite w końcu terminu przydatności, dojrzałe. Aromat głęboki, suszone owoce plus kwaskowe nutami szampańskie. Smak to słodowość, słodycz, rodzynki. Krótka goryczka na finiszu i subtelna nuta alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca.

ferrinche (24) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2015
Dejando de lado lo curioso de su vaso, se trata de una muy buena Strong Ale, además su disponibilidad es bastante alta. La espuma desaparece relativamente pronto, pero su sabor es intenso, al estilo de una típica Ale belga. Si te gustan este tipo de cervezas es claramente recomendable.

sonotono (28) - torino, ITALY - FEB 17, 2015
Aspetto ambrato-rosso, bella schiuma. Buon profumo, sapore fruttato e caramellato, bell’equilibrio finale tra dolce e amaro. Un’ottima Belgian Strong Ale.

vidmidia (33) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 15, 2015
Âmbar, límpida. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma e sabor adocicado de caramelo, frutados e ligeiramente florais. Álcool perceptível, mas sem interferir no sabor. Retrogosto adocicado com amargor equilibrado e sobressaindo no final.
