Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
A dark brown ale with a thin creamy and big bubbled brown head. In aroma, sweet candy malt with dark fruits, cherries, and light molasses. In mouth, a sweetish candy malt with dark fruits, molasses and light honey. Boring.

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Reddish, hazy. Dark berry/fruity nose. Some marzipan, red currants, dark cherries, plums. Very aged aroma, with vinous tones. Body is fullish. Some murky oak, dark fruits, berries, some green apple. Yeasty esters. Very strange brew. Feels almost vinous, but with sweetish marzipan. Very flavourful though.

TickerTerryDJ (633) - Redditch, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013
75cl bottle from Delices et Caprices shared with Steve.Poured a dark redish brown with a deep off white head.Immediate dark fruit aromas with toffee and caramel.In the taste a lovely mixture of toffee,plums,figs and butterscotch all nicely balanced and blended together making a smooth drinking and tasty beer.On warming a little,other flavours surfaced including raisins and dates.The alcohol in this one is well hidden.Near syrupy smooth and delicious beer and really glad we tried it in the rare 75cl sized bottle.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2012
It has been a long time since my last Belgian ale and it showed as I found this one to be spot on as a slow sipper. Into a chalice at cellar temperature. Couldn’t be more excited to get in the glass as a plume of foam rises quickly quickly toward the lip. Settles out a half-half mix of well conditioned sparkling mahogany beer and towering, tannish head that adds creaminess to the mouthfeel and leaves a thick lace. Complex nose of figs in syrup, stewed rhubarb and sweet dark stone fruits, treacle and tar, blood and rust and just a hint of alcohol spice. Ripe, juicy plums and dried fruits dominate the palate with a backbone of butterscotch, dark toffee praline, wood and mild rust in the back. Alcohol is well hidden though there is a hint of sherry in the finish. Good length; a continuation of the palate. Nice body; not as big as anticipated but definitely well poised. The carbonation nothing but a prickle to the tip of the tongue. Smooth, almost oily for the remainder. Delicious overall. Really pleasant drinking. (33cL, bottled on 31/10/11, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
