Benzai (10903) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, - JAN 31, 2013
33cl bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Almost opaque dark brown color with some redness coming through. Medium to full sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Don’t get much aroma but that might be me since I have a bit of a cold. Taste malts, some caramel, slightly liquorice and slightly black fruits. Medium body and carbonation.

Aromas of metal, licorice, coffee and dark sweets. Head dissolves quickly. Velvet texture. Strong powdery and smokey flavour balanced with sweet alcohol.

Muggus69 (1609) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2015
330mL from International Beer Collector BB 29/07/2017 Pretty impressive looking beer - deep bronze, near brown body, with a firm creamy tan head persisting. Aroma is rich, decedent - rich caramels & treacle, cakey, roast nuts, bucket loads of dried fig, date, prune, with a generous measure of woody phenolic spice. Thick rich body, doesn’t pretend to be a small beer - creamy, smooth, long on the finish. Must be said - letting this beer warm up pays will reward you! Great complexity & richness on the body - cocoa, nuts, dark caramels, vast array of dried fruits & savoury spice. Long warm finish, moderate bitterness, lingering liqueur-like sweetness. Proper good strong Belgian ale - one for a cold night.

Ulysse (349) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2015
Moderate apple candy aroma. Abundant light brown foam, creamy and elegant that sticks to the glass. First in the mouth a tad watery. Creamy feel and light coffee aftertaste.

Shark_Pants (477) - AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2015
Deep murky brown with nice big frothy head that keeps slowly growing, even after about 5 minutes. Sweet complex aroma of dates, plums, pecans, cherries and treacle. The taste has sweet molasses, earthy belgian yeast, dates, plums, cherries, raisins, spices and a smooth warming booze. Light bitterness in the finish. Full bodied and sticky. Really great on a cool evening.

Sammy (9815) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Solid Belgian ale, satisfying. Above average mouthfeel. Large brown retained head. Clean, good malting with the yeast.

leghorn99 (143) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 31, 2015
Arriva nel bicchiere di color tonaca di frate, opaco; la testa di schiuma è compatta, di colore beige, cremosa e molto persistente. Al naso toffee, frutti rossi, ciliegia, zucchero candito, liquirizia, con sentori più leggeri di uvetta e di prugna. Il gusto porta invece sugli scudi la liquirizia, indiscussa protagonista, affiancata da note di biscotto e pane nero, toffee, uvetta e zucchero. La marcata dolcezza viene contrastata da una leggera acidità (accenno di caffè) e da una leggerissima nota amaricante terrosa, breve pausa prima di un retrogusto dolce dove ritornano uvetta e prugna assieme ad un timido tepore etilico, unica avvisaglia di un alcool (10%) altrimenti celato in maniera assolutamente straordinaria. Birra molto dolce ma mai stucchevole, dal corpo medio e con la giusta dose di bollicine.
