Bottle - Pours a a nice brown, big bubbly white head that dissipates to a light lacing. Aroma belgian yeast, dark grains with some malts, all spice and a bit of nuttiness. Good carbonation - bubbly on the palate - some sweetness probably from the honey but a dry aftertaste with some yeast and molasses.

AdolfoCC (204) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - NOV 28, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar profundo con algunos destellos marrones a contraluz, se alcanza a observar cierta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de mediana baja retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: notas a azúcar no procesada, caramelo, ligeramente la miel, algo especiado como anís, frutos rojos y algo cítrico como naranja. SABOR: nuevamente, el dulzor presente y predomina, notas a azúcar no procesada, caramelo, miel, frutos rojos y el gusto a naranja marcado, algo similar al licor Cointreau o Grand Marnier pero no tan intenso, anís; el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo, ligeramente amaderado y dulce. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero alto, mediana carbonatación. Ligeramente se alcanza a percibir el alcohol en boca y garganta sin llegar a ser agresivo. RESUMEN: interesante para el estilo, buena a secas.

Mooie schuimkraag, zwak moutig geur , sterke metaal achtige smaak die overgaat in zoete tonen. Erg droog in de mond.

Didn’t feel like a bok beer. Very dark brown, creamy and nutty, as well as caramely. I could feel some flavour from the honey. Generally good.

Flesje gekocht bij trappistenklooster in Achel. Heel donkerbruin, mooie kraag. Aroma is niet heel sterk, wat honing, beetje bitter, zoetsnoep. Smaakt vrij zoet, vaag roodfruit maar vrij vlak.

mooi donker biertje met een lekkere honing smaak en een kruidige afdronk. Het oog heeft ook wat met de mooie fles en het mooie glas
