On Tap in Paris! Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Dark brown, accompanied by a medium sized toffee head, with some lace. Lovely full caramel/malt taste. Well balanced, complex and smooth as silk. Gorgeous!

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2004 Draught at The Rover, Gotehnburg, Sweden. Brown and a little hazy. Large off-white head. Fresh aroma, could it be pepper? A warm alcohol-feel. A lot of chocolate and some fruits in the flavour.

Pours a dark brown, large beige head that mainly lasts and leaves good lacing. Aroma is lightly malty, some dough, banana, and some caramel and honey. Flavor is quite sweet at the start, more fruity in the middle, and ending is dry. Medium-full bodied.

Found this on tap at Gollem in Amsterdam. The tap version is much less sweet than the bottled version. Aroma is complex, but one of the distinct things I could detect was a fresh, harvest apple aroma. That aroma was mildly present in the tasting also. Very fresh and enjoyable.

Poured a cloudy dark brownish purple color with a large very light tan head with some lace. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, in particular plums. Taste was sweet, fruity and had hints of chocolate and roasted maltiness.

Christian (11218) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 Unclear brown body with a foamy off-white head. The complex aroma has some fresh lemon and fruit; coffee, caramel and chocolate; some earth and oak wood. Dry and caramelly flavour.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 Pure deep brown coloured with just about no head and what is there leaves fast as well. Numerous malt esters play with our nose. Dark berries and chocolate. Full mouthfeel with above average carbonation. Big malty chocolate taste, subtle hops bring us into a bitter aftertaste. It's good, but not awesome as I expected as a fierce lover of the Dubbel style.

Nice brownish red beauty. Nose is full of chocolate, fruit, slight licorice, and malt. Rich tongue fulfills more of my spicy and sweet desires with some cocoa and dried fruit. Finishes very well and leaves a pleasantly earthy taste in the mouth. Very good stuff here!
