It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of candied sugar some dried fruits and a hint of orange peel. The taste was similar to the aroma with booze, caramel and some woodiness. Nice.

Brewhemia (56) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2015
Really nice strong belgian ale. Dark amber color with thick white head. A really nice and complex suttle aroma of dough and banana among many other things. Yummy taste with plenty of sweetness but a great deal of bitterness and sourness to ballance it out. Lots of taste.

minutemat (1986) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours a rosy deep brown with medium off-white head. Sweet candi sugar aroma. Taste is slick, beautiful Tsjeeses, nicely balanced with a rich fruitiness but kinda hard to get much port influence. Disappointing in that regard but still a great beer.

Arrière goût de liqueur. Très bon palais crémeux. Goût qui rapelle le porto avec une touche boisée. Bière lourde mais on ne goûte pas trop l’alcool. À boire calmement
