Swaroga (1468) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2013
75cl bottle. Dark brown with huge head. Nose : burned aromas of caramel, toffee, cooked fruits, dried raisins, tart, fig. Sip : medium body with oily texture. Medium carbonation. Sweet tart notes, burned and toffee. Develops more fruit nuances as it stays cloying sweet. Minor bitterness on the end. Finish reveals hop aromas. Overall it's a well balanced beer. Tasty and in it's category of dark Belgian ales it's one of the better ones.

Caramel and metal aroma. Luckily no metal flavour. Rather sweet. Bit of an alcohol burn.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2013
Ein Abend, der hoffnungsvoll mikt einem Weizenbock begann und nach dem ersten katastrophalen Witbier dieses Zeug lieferte. Metallisch, mufflig, immerhin leicht getreidig und zum Abschluss einfach derb. Schade drum, denn die bisherigen des Fagnes waren teilweise groß.

After having one or two other beers from Super de Fagnes, I didn’t really had any hopes into this one. In fact, I was scared. And mainly for the right reasons. It turned out, after an evening of only bad beers (except one from Maisel & Friends), that this will be the last turn-down. It has got quite a nice look: Deep dark ruby-brown colour, steady creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of sweet dark brown bread and brown sugar. Taste of sweet malt, raisins and caramel. I once drank a very bad Russian Kvass and this beer came very close to it. So awful sticky caramel-sweet with dull and dusty hints of cellar and basement. I’m very happy that this evening is more or less over - it can only get better.

tderoeck (5148) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2013
25/III/13 - 33cl bottle from Comptoir des Fagnes (Couvin, BE) @ home - BB: 19/IX/14 (2013-267)

Clear red brown beer, irregular beige head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: lots of caramel, sugar, cola-like, lemony touch, very artificial. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: bit sugary, some caramel, little bitter, spices if not much. Aftertaste: sugar, bitter hops, some liquorish, very watery overall, bit metallic too. Crappy and probably cheaply produced beer. Not a fan.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle brought home from Belgium. Dark brown with a medium thick bubbling brown head. Deep toffie and nut aroma. Sweet dark fruity flavor, bitter roasted nuts, alchohol and a sharp bitter finish.

MrHangover (2765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Clear brown colour, beige head. Aroma of molasses, caramel and malts. Flavour has hints of cookies, sweet and a light alcoholic overall flavour. Quite decent.
