COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The new masterpiece from the Val-Dieu brewery. A very complex and full-bodied beer with a long aftertaste. The brewmaster advices to cellar the beer for a year for it to unfold its full potential.

Poured into a large Karmaliet tulip glass. Poured a cola like brown with a pillowy three finger head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices, brown sugar and some candied fruit. Taste comes across the same. Although very sweet, the carbonated dry finish at the end makes this very enjoyable and not cloying.

SinH4 (480) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Brown color with small beige head. Yeasty and lots of raisins. Taste is more raisins, sugary, too sweet, in an unbalanced way. Carbonation is ok. Not quite my cup of tea.

I absolutely love this beer. The aroma is amazing and it’s a perfect beer for a cold day outside.

Dit bier thuis gedronken. Bier is erg vol van smaak mer tonen van gedroogd fruit. Schuimkraag was gelijk weg helaas. Maar smaakte niet verkeerd.

3oz on tap Twenty Tap. Mostly clear reddish color. Thin off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of slick lighter carbonation, lightly soft texture. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitter, lightly spicy.. Awesome dark fruit, mild spice, caramel malt. Good dubbel sort of flavor, I dig it. A bit sugary, makes it lean towards the belgian strong ale with the candi sugar. Solid belgian dark strong ale overall. A bit sugary sweet, but nice flavor too. I don’t mind it.

Dahlstrom (6) - gasvetksgatan 3, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2015 does not count
Mörk färg, med en kritvit skumkrona. Luktar sött och kryddigt av jästen; även en svag ton av vanilj? Smakar jäst, socker, och kryddigt. Alkoholen döljs väl av maltigheten, men ger sig tillkänna i den långa eftersmaken. /Tommie and Petter. Over and out!
