Noctilucus (106) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2013
Deep burgundy, a tad cloudy, beige head. The nose is a bit subdued, red fruits, something sweet in there, with some bitterness underneath all of that. The taste itself is more bitter than the nose, quite alcoholic and not sweet at all, also contains some roasted malts. Still, it could have been a bit stronger for an 8.5% beer. The aftertaste is rather straightforward with an alcoholic afterglow (though not excessive) and a bit of roast and bitterness lingering. A solid Dubbel, nothing breath taking but balanced, enjoyable and with enough body for its strength. Definitely an interesting move from Roman to put this on the market.

mnoud (318) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
2013.01.01 - Adriaen Brouwer Dark Gold Ale. 11.2oz bottle in goblet. Pours deep red to brown. A full inch head settles to a mere 1cm foamy head with lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and mild pepper. Taste is sweet malt, a bit of a bite, carbonation on finish. Overall, slightly sweet. Not the best Belgian but good.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle. Not bad, its getting some poor rating, but I enjoyed it. Definite notes of bread, dark fruits such as rasins and prune. Toffee sweet finish with honey, I do detect that meattalic taste that others are complaining about. For me, that is the only downside.

reggiedunlop (3697) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Backlog...late 2011/early 2012...bottle...pours deep amber/ruby with a thick and foamy tan head. Aroma is very fruity...candy sugar, fig, raisin, some candied fruits. Flavor is very sweet with candy sugar, plum, fig, and a touch of leather. Mouthfeel is full and sticky with an earthy/leathery dry finish thatcuts the sweetness.

psicodrummer (15) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 19, 2012
An underrated belgian strong ale. Dark brown with huge head. Malty scent. Sweet but balanced, a bit of salty notes at the end (reminded me of Westvleteren 8 at this point). Delicious, and not too expensive, ill have more in the future, no doubt
