COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar.

Cristobal37 (1287) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 19, 2017
Hazy orangey amber, all of the head dissipates. Orange peel, cloves, spicey fruity yeast and caramel malt. Full carbonation. Malty, nutty, the taste is more subdued than the aroma. Easy drinking at 9%. Not sure what to make of it really. It's balanced, well done, but still unappealing to me. So far I haven't been a fan of any of the Des Rocs beers, perhaps I just was not meant for this house yeast. Not bad but not my thing at all.

ardeo (598) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Bière ambrée un peu trouble et mousse peu abondante. Nez au bouquet plein avec caramel, miel, pruneau. Bouche effervescente, sucrée, alcoolisée aux goûts de prune et de caramel avec du poivre en finale. Trop de sucre pour mon palais et l'alcool n'apporte pas un + à l'ensemble.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Lots of dried fruits that gives a nice taste, but don't really meet mine.

Camons (13514) - Hasselager, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2017
Bottle @ Home. Pours slightly hazy amber with a fading offwhite head. Aroma of malt, bread, caramel, belgian yeast, little spice, and little sweet dried fruit. Flavor is sweet, malt, bready, caramel, little yeast, toffee, sweet dried fruit, little alcohol. Medium to full body, average to lively carbonation, sweet finish with warming alcohol. To sweet and a bit overcarbonated. 161017

patricks110 (2794) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2017
A little sweet for me. Tons of dried fruits, molasses, big spice and bread, toffee malts. Alcohol is mildly present among the sweet dessert esque profile. Rich fruity notes and deep esters. Robust and heavy with a mild bitterness on the finish. Overall an interesting if not slightly dissapointing brew...
