freretoc (1507) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 29, 2015
Bue à la pression en 25cl au Kilarney à Besançon, couleur brune avec des gros reflets ambrées, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec un nez floral et grillé. En bouche attaque sur le grillé et sur la fraicheur de la réglisse, puis deuxième bouche sur le sucre un peu écoeurante mais pas mauvaise.

vickey9 (966) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2015
Poured a reddish brown amber with a light cream brown head. Nose is spicy with autumn leafs. Body is medium, carbon high, texture thin. Taste is sweet. Palate gives some caramel, honey, metal and medicine. Sweet aftertaste. B@H

Holmen1 (4512) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 2, 2015
Flaske, delt med Ovesen mens vørteren kjølner: klar, dyp brunrød med fint offwhite skum. Mer bær og mindre mørk sjokoladesnop enn det jeg forbinder med stilen, men absolutt konsumeringsverdig. God uten å være minneverdig.

Holmen2 (2645) - NORWAY - APR 2, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 02.04.15. Dark copper. Foamy and dense head and lacing. Aroma of medium dark malt, dark berries, herbs and Jägermeister. Similar taste.

cmc619 (501) - California, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Nice pour - deep brown, with a respectable tan head and lacing. Full, fresh, countryside Belgian brew aroma. Taste is pretty nice, maybe a little dull, but I might be influenced by this chocolate pairing (I find the beer didn’t stand up well to dark chocolate truffle). Overall it’s a pretty nice version of the style.

gregnsteve01 (10) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Deep amber colour, generous and thick head, misty, turbulent perlage. Wonderful aroma, fresh, malty, porto wine notes, analogies with a barley wine aroma. Good malty body, less strong that the strength may suggest, good balance and good palate, not too much aromatic.

onanalancaster (10) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander, tangerine, licorice, clove, and brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic.

corkyrory66 (1265) - BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2014
Bière double de 7,5 % abv. Couleur roux foncé. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes très peu nombreuses. Mousse beige caramel qui tombe vite. Arômes de candi à pleins poumons, malt cara. 1ère bouche douce, sur du malt cara, du caramel, et du candi (le sac est tombé dedans …). Arrière-bouche de friandise pour gosse. 2ème avec un peu d’herbes sur le candi, mais encore plus de candi sur l’herbe … Arrière-bouche doucereuse, sans aucune complexité. 3ème avec une légère pointe de genièvre, et du malt légèrement torréfié, en plus du cara. Arrière-bouche un rien plus construite, mais banale. La longueur est une descente (aux enfers??). Aucune nuance fine. Goût fade, sans ampleur. Les jambes sont grasses et disparates. La levure est plus que ténue. L’alcool est banal (issime). La finale est au ras des pâquerettes. CONCLUSION : bière bien triste pour cette belle région des Fagnes. Mieux vaut y aller faire une rando que de boire une bière brune (artisanale!!) du coin...

Alengrin (4163) - BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2014
Fagnes’ second, with a thick, beige, moussy, irregular, stable head and very dark burgundy colour, clear. Malty aroma of bread, caramel, chocolate, plums, orange, strawberry, straw, flowers, coriander and subtle liquorice. Malty, dark fruity and bready taste, sweet but not sugary, light sourishness, low hop bitterness in the finish. Okay dubbel.

deanso (8114) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
75cl bottle shared with 2 friends. Thin off white head. Clear brown pour. A decent brown. .
