dnstone (3016) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Lemon drop nose. Amber-brown with strong head. Lemony, syrupy (in a good way) with a light nuttiness and dry...a bit barleywinish.

kaserov (519) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 6, 2017
Color marrón claro, opaco y rojizo si le da la luz, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (no demasiada retención). Carbonatación a tope visualmente pero mucho más sutil en boca. Muy cremosa. Aroma increíble a dark fruits, pasas, azúcar moreno, toque vinoso y alcohólico muy placentero, especias y un poco de chocolate. Una maravilla, recuerda a la Pannepot. Sabor que contiene todo lo anterior, dulce, con el chocolate y las pasas aun más presentes y final de ligero amargor y alcohol que la hace más compleja (el alcohol parece que va a estar más presente cuando la hueles pero en boca es más ligero de lo esperado, caliente un poco el gaznate en el primer y segundo trago y posteriormente el efecto se pierde y recuerda casi a algún vino. En retrogusto y postgusto quedan pasas y dark fruits por un tubo. Compleja, riquísima e increíblemente bien hecha. Para repetir y repetir y repetir...

bonev (674) - POLAND - APR 2, 2017
Piwo w kolorze jasny brazowy z piana ktora bardzo szybko znika bez sladu. W aromacie belgijskie drozdze, suszone owoce i karmel. To samo mamy w smaku, wszystko bardzo poprawnie jak w dobrym klasycznym belgu.

VDuquerroux (1553) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark sparkling brown mahogany beer with a big of-white foamy head ; good retention ; many yeast sediments, what a pity... Roast, dried fruits, plum, bread, biscuit, dark fruits (red berries). Medium sweet, round ; warming atmosphere ; light dry bitter. Full body, light to medium silky texture, average to soft carbonation, lasting dry sweet warming finish. Overall, delicious !

sebletitje (9908) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2017
Bouteille 33cl, BB 16/12/2018. Orange avec un léger doré, col beige, moyen retombant vite. Arôme offre un bouquet malté caramel, pointe de pils, pâle, rétro de fruité confit, raisin sec, dates, pruneaux avec un caramélisé arrivant en complément, même une petite note noisette. Palais est malté, caramel, pâle sucre candy ajoutant une petite note de douceur et de crystalisé - possible malt dark crystal? Biscuité avec impression de raisin sec, fruits noirs, amertume plaisant et noble sur la fin, note aussi une pointe de noisettes. Petite bière qui va se bonifier avec l’age.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle marked 16/02/2013, here just shy of four years later. Nose is sweet and richly estery, stone fruit of plums and apricots, then red berries, touch of cola. Very slow expander, but not a gusher, chestnut from the neck but dark brown in the glass, lots of sediment as I never seem to get a good pour from these, medium and very soapy tan head. Taste rich in candy sugar-like sweetness, surprising medium bitterness doesn’t quite balance, very malty and dense with minimal hopping, lots of hazelnut and dark caramel, the gooey toffee stuff that adheres to the back of a spoon, but airy with those fruity esters, more banana and clove, some darker chocolate and roasty notes in the deep background, cola, raisin and brown sugar. Medium-full body, neither creamy nor crisp, but merely pleasantly smooth; alcohol is extremely well integrated and dangerously so. Very light herbal tones and a nice springtime green, somewhere between woodruff and mint; outright floral tones are very faint. Clean, bright, fresh, classy, tremendous. [2017.01.30: 4.2]

Fruity; dark fruits, raisins, plums. Spicy. Yeasty; heavily sedimented, phenomenal number of floaties. Hoppy; balancing hop bitterness. Warming alcohol. Sweet malty fruity spicy yeasty throughout. Enjoyable. Classy Dark Triple! (2016-12-23)

kajser27 (1707) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 28, 2016
Dark brown colored, unclear, medium beige to tan frothy head. Aroma is of brown sugar, caramel, spices with some apple candy. Taste is very sweet malt and brown sugar, caramel, dried fruit, fruity candy, apple, spices, medium bitterness but a sweet finish, alcohol well hidden. Full bodied, average carbonation, sticky. Too sweet and sugary and bit cloying for me... (bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)
