COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 Bevuta il 04/01/2018 @DurtyNelly'sPub in Borgomanero (NO). Colore tonaca di frate. Abbondante schiuma beige pannosa e persistente. In bocca forti note maltate, toffee, caramello, uvetta, prugne, frutta matura, leggero speziato. Media carbonazione. Buon corpo, è vellutata, calda, riscaldante. L'alcol viene fuori piano piano senza essere fastidioso. Finale amarognolo, simile al caramello bruciato. Ottima.

Niestety rozczarowanie, aromat całkiem przyjemny, kolor bardzo ładny, piana również, ale w smaku praktycznie nic tylko kwaskowe i czuć zbyt mocno alkohol.

Miedziane piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat owoce i lekki zioła. W smaku owoce, lekki karmel i przyprawy. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie całkiem udany belgijski strong ale niczego nie urywa, ale jest dość solidny.

DonGregorio (612) - POLAND - DEC 17, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark red beer with large, disappearing tan head. Aroma of yeast, spice, pear, apple, dried fruit, some candy sugar. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium- bitter, of yeast, spice, pear, apple, dried fruit, light caramel, with notes of spice in the finish. Medium body, average to lively carbonation. Quite good.

caketm (420) - Czestochowa, POLAND - DEC 17, 2017
Butelka 0,33 l. Wypita 17.12.2017. Barwa rudo czerwona, zmętniona. Piana gęsta ale szybko opada. W aromacie suszone owoce. W smaku również. Bardziej wytrawne niż słodkie. Wysycenie dość wysokie.
