Very nice complexity. The beer has a nice sweet aroma of roasted malts, and spices. The beer tastes like it smell but with a bit of a chocolate flavor. The beet has a great alcohol content to go with the spices that would make it a good winter warmer

Dunkel, fast schwarz, leider nicht sehr stabiler schaum. Rote Frucht im Antrunk, ausgewogen zwischen Säure und malziger Süsse geschmack. Wirklich besonders. Die 10,5% alc. merkt man diesem abteibier nicht an. Aktuell eines meiner lieblingsbiere. Am besten direkt vor ort probieren!

Sweet, but nice flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a bold Belgian brew I love to drink from time to time. A massive beer; strong, high in alcohol and full of body. The flavours are very mild, maybe a bit too subtle. In contrast with the taste which is very, very rich: Sugary sweet with licorice, candy and vanilla punches. This ale is very enjoyable but it definitely is not refined - the Grand Cru is a coarse brew, with out of balance sweetness.

Sampled @ ZBF 2015. Dark brown, little mocha head. Nose light dark wood, lots of sugar, touch overripe dark fruit. Taste is strongly sweet, brown sugar heavy, overripe fruits, lightly soapy, yeast, raisins, caramel, strong spices. Not as heavy as you would expect. Good, would expect more complexity but satisfactory as a sweet & strong Belgian. (Thx! for sharing people!)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark chestnut with reddish hues, and smallish (for the style) off-white head. Fresh bouquet with lots of yeasty fruit, roasted, chocolatey malts, a little metallic scents, wet dog and some boosy prickle at the back. Medium bodied palate with a little heat, low intensity but with a very long finish. Rather tame and pedestrian for the style though.
