Cette bière unique est une vraie bombe de grosse calibre. C’est une bière obscure avec une tête crémeuse couleur ivoire. Le nez est rempli d’arome complexe comme des malts rôtis, fruits secs, cacaouettes et même du sirop, l’ensemble bien emballée. Goût plein, complexe, riche et encore très rafraihissant. Elle develope également cette amertume noble à la fin qui s’attarde indéfiniment.

here it is...the king of the site. murky brown pour with a medium light tan head, quickly dissipating. Dark pit fruit aroma. malty, yeastly, raisin and plum flavors, nice alcohol warmth. Impeccably smooth, perfect mouthfeel...I can’t wait to drink more. Slight pepperiness also present, this is worth the wait and also the rank.

shrubber85 (7553) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 Bottle purchased at In De Vrede gift shop. Sweet fruity aroma - complex- cherry, plum, raisin, tannins and some chocolate malt - alcohol aroma become more apparent as it warms. Cloudy iced tea brown color with only the slightest head. Sweetness up front - flavor primarily chocolate malt and honey with cherryplum undertones - slight alcohol burn at end but much less than expected with a beer this strong. An amazing beer from an amazing brewery.

Geiserich (3346) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 2, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottled: Aroma of brown sugar, candies, fruits (plums, cherries). Dark amber to chestnut brown color, off-white creamy head. Flavor is full, malty, sweet, intensive notes of plum jam, plums, poppy, roasted malt, dark chocolate. Alcohol is very well hidden.

Bottle. 25 06 07. Rating #1000 (in theory) Aroma is very fruity and vinous with lots of raisins and plums. Some roasted chocolate malts also break through. This is rather aromatic, but slightly subdued. A tad fruitier than St. Bernardus 12. Hazy cola-color with a long lasting creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Starts vinous and sweet--almost like raisins and plums dipped in honey. This gradually turns into a warm roasted flavor with hints of chocolate. More traces of the sweet honey play peek-a-boo later on in the finish. Delightfully seductive, smooth, and amazingly drinkable. Lives up to the acclaim it receives!

blankboy (6023) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2005
Shared a bottle at Bar Volo. Thanks to Ralph! Pours a beautiful murky reddish brown with a creamy head. Great aroma of fruit, malt, chocolate and a variety of other great scents. The taste: WOW! Pepper and other spices, malt, chocolate, plum, hops and so much more. Every sip is different. Just fantastic. One of the top 5 beers I’ve ever had.

Pours a murky and muddy brown color with a thin creamy white head. Amazing aroma of raisins, sugar plums, caramel, malt and yeast, maybe spices too. Excellent, mind blowing flavor of raisins, sugar plums, carame, malt and yeast, again I feel that there might be spices in there. Medium body, creamy, confortable mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. This is a world class, mind blowing beer, every bit as good as its reputation.
