COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Froot loops notes and classic Unibroue yeast aroma. Dark effervecance and a nice cloudy foam top. Can?t get over that Froot loops aroma !? What?s behind that artificial fruit nose ? Soft in mouth presence, touch of herbes de provence. I?m going crazy, froot loops style cassoulet ? No hop needed, no hop showing. Distant alcool, so much fun to drink an easy beer like that. Easy yet complexe. Easy, in a possitive way. Easy like enjoying life with all its Grands Crus. Its not perfect, but the fact that I got this bottle at a gas station for 6$ makes it pretty close the perfection.

Luvystypotables (1016) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Aroma of smoked malt, and grains, pours a dark brown color with a moderately lasting tan well laced head. Moderate carbonation with a thick full bodied feel, tastes of ginger, prunes, smoked malt and grain. Short lasting smoky finish.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 29, 2015
750mL bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is initially roasted grains and spice with a pungent prune, some tobacco, and some funk. It pours a murky prune color with a light, fuzzy tan head that’s wispy with only light retention and no lace. The taste is a medium high bitter and medium sweet. The texture is a moderate thick and oily one with only a light fuzz for carbonation, and a medium full body that’s flavored with bread, spice, tobacco, and plums. It finishes spicy with a zip and has warm flavors of prunes and spice and leaves an aftertaste that’s bready and lingering with a light spice, alcohol, and fig.

SamP01 (622) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Pours a dark cloudy brown with a large beige head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, yeast with some dark fruity notes. Taste is sweet dark malts, dark plum fruit notes, yeast, some mild tartness. Palate is a medium body, fairly smooth with good carbonation. Finishes with a dark malt and dark fruit flavor of plums, maybe some raisin notes, yeast and a slightly dry sweet alcohol ending. Overall a good smooth and full flavored brew.

partchapol (65) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Smell and taste of date, caramel, anise. Sweet and thin sour. Very thin white cloud, light body, slightly thin texture but good amount of alcohol. Good but too sweet and much spice for me

ctipping (132) - Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2015
On-tap at the Yard House in PBG, FL. Served in a goblet. Dark red, nearly black with no head by the time it got to my table. No lacing. Doesn’t look like it has much carbonation. Delicious smell. Figs and dark fruit. Some caramel malts and the typical candi sugar smell. The taste isn’t quite as impressive as the aroma. Some aromas translated into flavor: the figs and other fruits and the belgian candi sugar. A bit of licorice in the finish. Very light bodied for such a strong beer. Low carbonation and a very dry finish. Finished the glass easily without feeling as though I had drank a 9% alcohol beer. Remarkably well made beer.

Ottima strong ale, si presenta marrone scuro con riflessi rossi e schiuma beige chiaro. Aroma di dark fruits. Eccellente la bevuta con una dolcezza ben equilibrata, malto in evidenza e una perfetta carbonazione.
