Beerenberger (1513) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Aroma of figs, raisins, prunes, sweet malts, and toffee notes. Pours a dark brown with a none lasting tan head which turns into a nice tan ring. A small amount of lacing is present. The taste is a surprise. I expected it to be fruitier in flavor. Instead, there is large pleasing roasted malt flavor up front with carmel, and dark fruits following. Medium body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. A hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall, this was an enjoyable surprise. Will drink again.

330ml bottle, pours deep red / brown, almost cola like. with an off-white head, rich malt in the aroma, toasted caramel & chocolate, woody notes and dark forest fruit. Medium sweetness to start giving way to a long bitterness and dry finish. Full bodied but with a light texture, with lively carbonation

Pringao_Toribi (270) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
In short: liquory and roasted beer. Aroma is to roasted malt, taste is very sweet and kind of bitter, palate is an incredible mixture between liquor and toffee.

slowrunner77 (6016) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"from belgium, but labeled as a mild stout. reminds me in many ways of lion stout, with it’s layers of malt, and complexity within an easy drinking package (and high [8.2]). little hops, lots of chocolate, sweet & spicy malts. not as good as Lion, but nice."

adster (432) - HUNGARY - OCT 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Tejszínes krémhab, presszókávés, diós illatok, selymes állagú, csordultig telt test. Egy belga strong ale, dubbel és imperial stout határán bravúrosan egyensúlyozó főzet azok rumos diós, mazsolás, étcsokoládés hangulataival. Gazdagsága valósággal gyönyörködtető.

Bottle from notes. Pours a dark brown color with a large, fluffy ivory colored head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, cocoa powder, light roast, a slight woody character, thin body for the flavors and a light earthy bitterness to the finish.

Pours dark with a nice, big creamy dark head which leaves a nice thick film. Good lacing. Aroma of roasty caramel and a little clove. Oily texture, medium body, good carbonation. Taste is a little roasty, with moderate sweetness.

Pelzky (34) - Szczecin, POLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Poured into trappist glass, dark brown color with tall, creamy and lasting head. Good lacing. Aroma of coffe and roasted malts with chocolate and burnt sugar notes. Taste is mostly the same with pleasant, warming alcohol and creamy mouthfeel. I bought this beer haphazardly and I’m surprisingly satisfied. Reminds me more Imperial Stout rather than Belgian Ale but it’s really good.
