NIce too. It was very strong but not in an alcoholic taste. Very interesting and with heavy character.

Een lekker donker bier dat niet zwaar is, maar vlot wegdrinkt. Niet slecht.

aleksander9 (398) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2014
Dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is mellow. some vanilla, sweet caramel, licorice, metal and Belgian yeasty spice. spritzy palate. Aftertaste is licorice, spice, caramel, red fruit and lingering licorice finish. Overall: A well brewed and easy drinking Belgian. I would like a lower carbonation and more taste.

GBZ59 (1116) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 20, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa Cáliz. Brota con color marrón y tintes rubí a contraluz. Corona bronceada, capa tupida y bastante persistente. En nariz, aromas de caramelo, toffees y leves notas de madera, trazos de anís y chocolate, olor de paño húmedo e intensos toques de disolvente. Entrada azucarada y tostada con matices de canela y puntos ácidos. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderadamente alta. Sensación en boca picante y chispeante. Sabores de toffee y ciruela que permanecen en el seco final amargo/dulce y el breve retrogusto afrutado. Desequilibrada. 330ml bottle. Chalice glass. Pours brown while showing ruby tints to the light. Close crown, tan in color, shows fairly good retention. Candy, toffee & slight woody aromas, hints of anise & chocolate, wet cloth odor & intense solvent-like notes to the nose. Toasted & sugary upfront touched by cinnamon & acidic hues. Medium body. Moderately high carbonation. Spicy & sparkling mouthfeel. Toffee & plum flavors linger into a dry bitter/sweet finish & brief fruity aftertaste. Unbalanced.

janubio (404) - SPAIN - JUL 11, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Be careful when serving it, it pours an enormous persistent off white head. Dark brown colour, semell of coffee, dark fruits, cherries and caramel. Thin body, much more than I expected, not a strong palate. Taste of chocolate, dark fruits,some licorice: And average beer for the style, IMO.

Mainuh_man (96) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours a clear brown with a rocky tan head. Really nice, rich, fruity aroma. Initial flavor is sweet belgian candi sugar with some hints of cherry. Middle transitions to a mild, dry bitterness with some burnt sugar and roasted malt flavor. Finishes with warm alcohol and and mild bitterness and cloying sugar in the back of the throat. Mild carbonation with a heavy body and thick mouthfeel. Overall, ok beer. Really nice aromas, and typical heavy, bruin texture without a ton of complexity in the flavor profile.
