Belgian strong Ale with sugar, that’s the easy way to describe the beer. In fact it’s difficult to say more about it. Well, I can add the taste of alcohol.

Ulysse (320) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2015
Brownish colour with minimal head. Rather high carbonation. On the sweet end of the tongue. Candi sugar? Feels like a watered down version of rochefort.

Odeur de miel. Fort sucré. Le goût de sucre masque tout le reste. Alcool fort présent.

Dark brown, cloudy appearance. Waterish aroma and taste, however can deel roasted malt, caramel and some fruity lines. However, the water line makes it refreshing

EddyBeer1 (1051) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2015
Brune foncée, effervescence moyenne-faible, quasi pas de col. Principalement maltée, léger caramel, un peu douce, vaguement épicée, manque clairement de caractère pour une brune.
