Outstanding beer. Wonderful appearance in the glass, with a lovely tan head. Beautiful aroma, figgy, yeasty, caramelly, delicious. Then the flavour is just amazing... a little caramel, some malts, a little raisin/dried fruit, and then a nice little bitter finish... Love this one...

kerenmk (3368) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 30, 2015
Draught at the Porter and Sons, Tel Aviv. about time! Very dark brown with a beige head. Ripe plum, raisins and roastiness in the nose, roasty, bitter taste followed by alcoholic undertones. Full and heavy body, a little fruity finish, quite carbonated.

DraftDodger (517) - - AUG 30, 2015
Copenhagen 30/8 2015. 33 cl bottle brought home by my in-laws from their vacation in Belgium (nice people). Very happy monk on the label indicating that this is good stuff. Pours hazy amber brown with big off-white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma of yeast, caramel, syrup and notes of alcohol. Soft carbonation. Flavour is caramel, yeast and toffee. Easily drinkable and pleasant bruin.

8/23/2006 11:37:12 AM 330ml bottle at home. Outstanding! I love strong Belgian ales and this one is very smooth indeed. Nice head, tasted fruits. Strong but not overpowering. Just right.

gegwilson (2197) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle in the Magnolia Beer Cafe in Keswick. Ruby with an off white head. Mild yeasty toffee aroma. The taste is spicy with toffee, raisin and port. High carbonation. Very good.

Bebum (517) - - AUG 14, 2015
Hazy brown. Medium body, mild flavor, watery middle, good carbonation but low heat for the ABV. Sweetish, bitter. Malty, barley drops. Not as tasty as I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luengus (4) - - AUG 12, 2015 does not count
Large frothy off-white diminishing head. Murky brown body. Light caramel/toffee malt aroma with light creamy touch. Metallic nose very present even after 5 min opened. Medium thin body with almost flat carbonation and a very metallic finish. Average taste duration slightly sweet, a bit acidic with low bitterness. Salty feeling and metallic flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frothmeister (633) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a murky chestnut brown (almost looks like commercial iced tea) with a frothy, three finger light tan head. On the nose, mineral notes, dark sugars, musty wet basement, dates, dark rye bread notes and a light earthy aroma. Taste wise, apparent alcohol, dark bread, raisin, light molasses, mineral notes that leads into brown sugar, dried fruit, ruby port, fruit cake, and light Concorde grape and earthy notes in the finish. 100% solid.

Vignale (2577) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2015
33cl-flaska från Beernavigator Ett drygt år gammal. Brunmurrig färg med krämigt smutsbeige färg. Välmogen med stora välintegrerade maltiga och fruktiga dofter och smaker. Lätt syrlig och måttlig sötma. Russin, plommon, mörkt socker, mörkt bröd och torrare avslutning med en markerad beska. En närmast perfekt dubbel.

Really great malts, brown malts hazy brown appearance, flavor of dried raisins and other dark fruits. Flavor of rich malts and biscuit grains and light yeasty banana character. Great stuff.
