4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque brownish with a thick beige head. Aroma is complex : Caramel, plums, figs, bread, some roasted notes, belgian yeast spice. Nice battle between the sweetness and bitterness, relaying each other. Medium body with an creamy texture. Carbonation is pretty lively. Finish is a little bit bitter/spiced.

Beautiful brown red colour. Nose does not give away too much, but taste is sweet with hints of dark Belgium chocolate. Finish a little bit more spicy. Good balanced beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a semi transparent very darkened amber with shades of black and darkened brown when held to a light source, creamy head formed and lasted while I put laundry up, had a smoke, and grabbed something to eat- quite awhile! Aroma of molasses, plum, sun beaten dark grapes, and yeast. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is light but is immediately brushed aside by the same aromas described transcribing into the mouth, middle holds up well with the fruit continuing, finish is slightly sweet and some pepper. This could be very dangerous for me- F’ IT, my middle name is Danger...

33 cl på torget i Bryssel. Kul att dricka denna på plats på riktigt. Lite för mycket alkoholsmak för att ge toppbetyg.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a dark mahogany color, with a massive beige head that persists, leaving excellent lacing. Nose is dark fruit, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste is dark fruit, figs, plums, etc. and a hint of caramel. Finish is long, with a creamy mouth feel and increasing complexity, finally yielding to a pleasant spice note. One of the greatest beers in the world.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful sweet, strong, fruity beer. Definitely fig, some biscuit or cookie (simply reminds me of a fig newton) dark fruit sweetness, but with just a little bit of lighter fruit mixed in in the aroma. Malt, slight bitterness, just enough to give it a bite and not so fruity.

Bottle thanks to mcbackus...vintage 2006. Mostly clear, dark amber, reddish brown pour with large tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma, toffee, dark fruits, complex malty goodness. Flavor is vinous, sherry like, some oxidation due to age, dark fruits, more caramel and toffee, finishes with strong alcohol presence.
