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 ….

Butterscotch and nutty aroma. Dark brown color, light brown rocky head, good lace. Nutty, hint of banana, medium bitterness, full body. Very nice beer which reminded of a combination between Westmalle Dubbel and Rochefort 8.

25/05/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: not indicated on bottle or cap (2011-226)

Cloudy dark brown beer, crackling (sound) beige head, stable and non adhesive. Aroma: sweet caramel, alcohol, ripe fruits, some sour berries, roasted malts. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malts, fruity, some sour red berries, caramel. Aftertaste: more tartness balancing the sweetness, little bitterness with spices. Some alcohol warming the back of the throat.

Pours a deap red dark brown with a nice light tan head. Its aroma are fruity and sweet. It has a very deap carbonation all along and has flavors of sweet grapes or plums and the strong taste of roasted malts. I could call it: Crunchy Roasted Nuts. It is very pleasant and a very good lasting taste.

Wonderful beer. Pours cloudy brown with suspended sediment, airy beige head and sticky lacing. Light sour, yeasty aroma, taste is straight up yeast, with some mellow lingering sourness. A real beauty of a beer.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2010
Appearance: Hazy, dark amber body with a ½ inch head of whitish foam. Craggy lacing on the way down. Smell: Toasty, dark malts in the nose. A few cherries, a few plums, and a few raisins stirred up with a cup of sticky dark brown sugar and a tablespoon of ground spices. Taste: Fairly robust maltiness delivers deep, personal tastes of brown sugar and toasted bread crusts dosed with a hearty dash or two of dark candi sugar. Flavors of plum and lightly tart cherries soon follow. Very small hint of bitterness makes its presence known. Hints of clove and aniseed for a bit of spice. Semi-dry, warming, effervescent finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: A fine, enjoyable BSDA that’s a bit sweet, savory, and fruity. What the hell more do you people need?

Copper orange color with very thick layer of beige foam. Malty then yeasty aroma. Notes of dark fruit, molasses and candy sugar. Reminds me of a Kastell Bruin. Subtle ABV content.

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.

Dark brown with slight haze (cold -?); dark crème head, slowly disappearing. Chocolate malt, roasted and herbal, and also very lightly lactic nose, like yoghurt. Taste: OHOH - what is this? Is this Rochefort 7, maybe? Pear drops, roasted malts and sweet malts, vinous and 'speculoos', all is there. Very well bodied without being really heavy. Slight oily mouthfeel. Some alchohol, hidden. Listen. If I were to say this ain't good, then I'd be the King of Hypocrites. I love Rochefort; don't we all? But, OTOH, it is a bit copycat, even when in the sweet direction...
