diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2009
Bottle Hazy amber to brown body. Lightly brown, creamy head. Complex aroma, mainly of caramel with hints of grapes, wood, acid, ... Very well balanced aroma. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour with a soury note. Again a good balance and complexity with a nicely warm mouthfeel. Great beer. Bit rochefort-like: a strong focus on caramel.

Swaroga (1109) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2012
75cl bottle. Brown and hazy, big tanned head. Nose : Cheese, caramel, toffee, dairy, red fruits. Sip : decent carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Sweet with distinctive flavors of toffee, cherry, tart. Alcohol is well hidden but it comes back warming in the aftertaste. The flavor of this beer lasts long and it is mostly sweet, slightly sour. Really sweet and candy like but well balanced and delicious way to accompany cakes and maybe some wild meat. Nice.
