33 cl bottle bought from supermarket. Pours cloudy brown color with minimal beige head. Aroma of dark malt, caramel, toffee, some yeast, dark fruits. Taste is creamy, roasted malt, caramel, dark sugar. Medium body, average carbonation, light bitter finish. Overall a good Belgian beer. kepano (283) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 24, 2017
Drinking this on lovely end of summer, Sunday afternoon. Pours a very dark chocolatey brown, cloudy, almost completely opaque. A foamy tan head dissipates quickly. Aroma is gentle and sweet, classically Belgian. Fig Newtons, brown sugar, almond paste and molasses. A bit of clove, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Not cloying but definitely dessert-like. Very smooth on the palate. The carbonation is mild, which bring out the bready character of this beer. Pumpernickel and dark honey are the primary flavors. Ends with licorice and a slightly smoky finish. A final burst of buttermilk, burnt caramel and tingling carbonation balances out the sweetness of this beer. Follows the tradition of medium-bodied trappist brown ales without achieving the same complexity. Lacks a unique point of view. That said, it marks the beginning of fall in a delightful way.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 33 cl. bottle. A brown coloured beer with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of malt, caramel, dried fruit, spice, yeast and roasted notes. ciocanelu (3000) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 30, 2017
Brown color with tan head. Aroma has wort sweetness and roasted grains with some earthy hops in the background. Taste is mostly malty with roasted grains and some brown sugar. Medium to light body and carbonation. Easy drinking, roasty ale, really similar to a porter.

Dark brown, with a bit of light tan foam. Nose has dark sugars, watered down molasses, caramel cream, Belgian chocolate malt, light earthy spices. The taste isn’t as sweet as expected, but quite earthy and spicy from the start, with grassy notes, crushed peppercorn, clove, faint cardamom and even some light tannins. Some toast and light caramel, some faint apple mash, and then a light bitterness in the finish. Dusty, earthy aftertaste, somewhat dry, too. Medium body, rather high carbonation. A nice enough Belgian dark, a bit rustic, authentic-feeling. I like this style. Zilverenmaan (303) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2017
Aroma not bad but faint: candi sugar, alcoholic sweetness, butterscotch, some plums. Taste creamy, sweet butterscotch, a little burnt maybe, some caramel, not bad but very thirteen in a dozen. tricksta_p (5223) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, toffee, nuts, dried fruits, raisins, spicy notes, yeast. Flavour is above medium sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is medium and a bit creamy. Not really my kind of beer, but it has some pleasant easy smoothness and slightly creamy body. Not bad. ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - FEB 8, 2017
