Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2006
Sweet and quite pruney aroma, with the typical notes of dark fruits for a belgian strong ale like this. Dark brown body with a reddish tint, small off-white head. Prunes and sweetness in the flavor, notes of some brandy, maybe a hint of apple, light alcohol in the end. Nice and decent, but not spectacular.

Dark maroon color. Caramel, dates, and dark fruit on the nose. Burnt malt, toasted bread in the taste. Roasty!

RW80 (341) - NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
33cl bottle as Deventer Dubbel from the Poort van Kleef Appearance Amber-red colour, foamy beige head. (2 fingers), some lacing Aroma: Apple syrup (sweet fruity, molasis like), floral hops, caramel -Very nice and powerfull allthough sweet. Taste: Follows the Aroma but much lighter. and much more standard . so i what’s left over is a more standard sweet fruity caramel molasis taste with some spices and licorice notes an a slightly sourness in the finish. thin body, average body Now I wonder what a heavier bodied version of this would bring. Like most Sint Canarus beers it’s very easy going. And i this case I thought they did not get everything out of it after the great aroma.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2014
Flasche (33 cl), 9 Monate im Keller gelagert. - Tiefes Rotbraun, leicht trüb. - In der Nase dunkles Malz, würzig-erdiger Hopfen. Volles, schweres dunkles Malz dominiert den Antrunk. Brotkruste, Anklänge von Spekulatius, aber ohne prononcierte Süße. Kräftiger, erdig-krautiger Hopfen mit kühlender medizinischer Note. Im Abgang weinige Schwere und etwas unangenehmer, brennender Alkohol. - Kann diesem Bier nichts abgewinnen: das erdige dunkle Malz, der krautige Hopfen und dazu die fuselige Note zum Schluß sind einfach zuviel des Guten.

fkoolen (143) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Amber-red colour, foamy beige head. Red and dried fruits are prominent in the fruity and floral nose and taste, as are malts and candy cane/brown sugar adding to the sweetness, some bitter hops, a little sour along the tongue, some spiciness and even some liquorice and anise. Quite complex, but relatively thin bodied, sadly, but therefore easily drinkable. Low carbonated.

corkyrory66 (438) - BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2014
Bière du potier qui a l’air d’y prendre beaucoup de plaisir (sur l’étiquette). Qualifiée de « strong ale » par ratebeer, elle titre à 8%abv, donc c’est un peu juste, mais au vu du produit final on est d’accord. Couleur ambre moyen soutenu. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes en colonne au centre, mais peu nombreuses. Mousse beige en nappage. Arômes d’épices fines, cannelle, figue, avoine, riz, pelure de pomme de terre. 1ère bouche souple avec une belle prise sur des fruits rouges et du malt, très originale. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe fumée douce, pointe de poivre rose aussi. 2ème bouche plus soyeuse, avec du malt caramel, des épices rouges et des herbes. Arrière-bouche très agréable. 3ème sur des amandes, des figues, du riz long. Arrière-bouche bien fondue, mais avec une belle amertume. La longueur offre des nuances de plus en plus jolies, fruits des bois, fût, tannins, etc. La levure est de grande capacité, très belle veine. L’alcool est bien progressif, très correct, parfait travail de soutien. La finale est quasi veloutée, fruitée, très fine avec épices, levure et malt. CONCLUSION : une grande bière, très originale, forte en saveurs, en variété, en assemblage. Un très grand programme autour de l’ambre ….

bbbeer (539) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Deep red-brown with rather large tan head. Intense aroma of baking bread, red fruits, molasses. Full body. Just a little alcohol. Flavor matches although not as intense as aroma. Pretty strongly sweet though, bread and dark fruits. Overall it’s probably a little too sweet and syrupy, but the aroma especially and also the flavors are really good.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 29, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Elegant ruby color, fraught and hazy aspect with good bubbly presence and a creamy head of long duration. Intense reddish fruity and malty aroma, notes of cellar, yeast and stum. Medium prickly taste, enouth malty and medium alcoholic perception, equilibrate and sweet mouth. Good long perception.

Countbeer (4035) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle: Served in a shaker: What the fuck is wrong with this beer: massive gusher and when poured out completely, which took ages because of the lively beer and foam, there are loads of yeast sediments in my foam... Anyways, let’s get unto the beer: Medium to bigger sized beige light brown ish foamy head on top of a deep dark hazy to murky brown colored beer. Aromas of carbo gass, malts, nuts, leaves, toast, toffee, autumnal herbs and some berries. Flavours of toffee, raisin, dried prunes, autumnal leaves, bitters, herbs, nuts, toast, spiced, yeast, grains, hint of cacoa, hay toast and some bittersweets. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, dried prunes, some hay and grass, some yeast and leaves. Low to medium carbo, creamy spiced mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a light creamy texture. Loads of yeast which makes this look like a fucking chocomel! Aside from that irritating gusher, a decent beer.

Trappist1 (349) - Diest, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2013
Brown, nice head (in an offnote, bottle almost exploded when opening). Nose: something sourish, chocolate powder. Taste: lot of CO2, yeast. Finish is sweet, with again chocolate but feels like something is wrong on this one. Have to try this again, had it better before. => RERATE
