Hanoi (609) - Greater Manchester, - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle: Nose is quite like a Christmas beer, cloves, almond, spice a little oak and lots of Belgian yeast. Taste is roast leading to Belgian yeast, a little white chocolate, berry, almond and a soft dry finish. It’s a very nice beer but a bit short in the finish with the dry note not quite right for me.

On bottle fro Drankenzentrale du Hopduvel, Gent. Amber color, slightly hazy with good foam. Medium/high aroma intensity; dried fruits, malt, yet fresh with some citrus and very good yeast influence. Medium body & complexity. Some sweetness, balances well. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patjeadam (85) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2015
A fruity belgian porter, or a roasted malty belgian brown ale. Either way, it is remarkably drinkable and yet complicated. It has a nice fresh smell of coffee and chocolate. It is a little sour, a nice fruity sweetness, all in bath of roasted malty goodness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Beardbeerman (256) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a very dark amber topped by about a finger of creamy tanned head showgin great lacing. The nose is smoky, earthy, nutty with some hints of leather. The earthy hops are fairly present. The taste is medium sweet toffee with a smoky/burnt backbone. Medium body with dense carbonation, strong mineral elements lead the finish with a baking soda feature on the tongue. Cheers!
