a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - JAN 27, 2013
Dark beer, almost black, very thin off white head; aroma of yeast and sweet dark fruit; well carbonated; thick, slightly oily mouthfeel; spicy, treacly, sweet, cherries and raisins; alcohol always present - tastes super strength; the honey smack can be felt in the finish; the big flavours here are enjoyable, but they sure aren’t subtle.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemny brazowy nalewa sie z gesta drobnopecherzykowa piana. Ewidentne estry i fenole z belgijskich drozdzy polaczone z karmelem i suszonym owocami. W smaku dochodza nuty czekoladowo-palone. Goryczka i wysycenie na srednio niskim poziomie.

vsyrbu (141) - MOLDOVA - JUL 3, 2017
Dark beautiful color, foam high with bubble and long falling off. Aroma of caramel and alcohol. In the taste, spices are added, something similar to coriander, alcohol is not so severe, slightly burning and sweet.

vinivini (2855) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 26, 2017
Pours deep brown with ruby highlights. Lush airy ivory coloured head. Stays for a few minutes. Well-lacing. The aroma is esters, caramel, dried fruit, minor chocolate & coffee. A hint of spicy hops. Medium body. Lively carbonated. Medium sweet flavour. Rich dark malts. Dried fruit. Chocolate. Coffee. Complex. Low bitterness still well detectable hops. Well hidden alcohol. Good.

nathanvc (647) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2017
Pours hazy dark brown with a small off-white head. The aroma contains malt, honey, chocolate and butterscotch - a bit one-sided. It tastes medium sweet and light bitter. Slick texture, fizzy carbonation, short finish.

3.4
Cristobal37 (1202) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 14, 2017
Dark brown a little head. Fruity and spicy yeast, sugary malt aroma. Light bodied, sugary cherry coke, some medicinal herb in the finish. Decent, nothing wrong with it, but kind of a run of the mill belgian ale. Mostly balanced but not so remarkable.

3.3
surething_ii (686) - Šenkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 8, 2017
Bottle from Tesco. Classic Belgian aroma -. Color is deep brown with a little head. Higher voltage is visible overlapped by dark chocolate. Like not my cup of beer but okay.

3.7
stupre (492) - Nanterre, FRANCE - APR 4, 2017
33 cl bottle purchased @ So bière. Belle robe ébène avec une mousse non persistante. Très agréable au nez. Belles notes de miel avec une pointe de réglisse. L’alcool arrive en fond et rend cette bière très équilibrée.

2.9
bartlebier (4118) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2017
33cl fliptop bb0/2017 (BL sampler 2017-2) . Sees the barley sugars of a Dopplebock through the coca cola lense of honey-studded and spiced (ginger? curacao peel, coriander?) Belgian Strong. Drinks easily like Dr Pepper, hence the recommended 5-6C serving temp. Liquorice, cranberry juice, overall alcopop coca cola. The fact this went from winter seasonal to year-round offering is telling of oldschool belgian post-Vandevelde brewing.
