2014 bottle from struise beer shop in Bruges. Probably 3 month old, guessed from expiry date. Rich and complex aroma. First bite is surprisingly acid. A bit wine like.

Bière sans mousse. Avec une acidité en bouche, goût très puissant. Bière qui fait penser au vin.

Tap at beergeek bar with cam, rach and the expat gang. heard they got it and had to try it out. had like 4 of em. pours dark copper with small head. fizz lasts all through the drink. aroma is nutty, cinnamon, spices, with figs and raisins. taste is awesome. overripe dark fruits, cherries, caramel, with spices and a smack of booze. as you drink the spices and hops come through more. moves to a dry warming finish. so good, so gooooodddd

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Completely black in color, with a one finger broad, beige, froth head.
Smells of spiced, sweet milk chocolate with a caramel core to it, while also providing a flowery, peppery pull. On top of that settles a hint of hot glue, together with molasses, balanced by earthy, calming malts.
Begins with earthy cocoa nibs, cream and toffee. The smooth mouthfeel experiences an addition of bubbly carbonation, which adds to the sweeter toffee presence. Spices become visible in a slightly peppery and licorice fashion, while also compliementing to the sweetness. The balance remains, because of earthy malts, along with hazelnuts and a Coca-Cola note. Finishes with a gentle coffee note, which isn’t bitter at all, due to the more present cane sugar and nougat, accompanied by a tingly spiciness.

2011 bottle. Pours nice and dark, pretty effervescent. Sounds like a soda or some shit. Small ring of brown head. Smells awesome! Deep Belgian sugar and molasses. Little funky on the nose. Tastes so awesome, its more balanced than a strong quad. Definitely glad I got to try this one! Outstanding Belgian ale.
