Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je znát po uzeném sladu, bukovém dřevě a kávě. Pěna je středně vysoká, lehce hnědé barvy, jemná a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je temně měděná, proti světlu krásně tmavě rudá a čirá. V chuti je znát kvalitní hořká čokoláda, má lehčí kyselejší okraj a sladší střed, finišuje kávovým spádem a konče lehkou hořkostí na patře.

Brown, dark fruit aroma, molasses and banana flavour, bitter finish. Spilled the last half, tragically, as I really enjoyed it. kbudd19 (1019) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013

One good italian product in belgian strong ale style, classic dark color, tan head, dark fruit and complex aroma, the taste is dry with light roasted and liquorice notes specially in aftertaste, soft body and medium carbonation.
More difficult at the end

Pours a hazy deep brown correct with a foamy light brown hat with some lacing. Aroma of dried fruits like figs & dates with some sweet caramel, malts & some nuts. Taste is some dried sweet fruits up front with a well balanced malty body and then a nice smooth sour cherry taste on the finish that leads to a nice dry finish like a syrah & so. E warming from the 8% abv. DuffMan (10452) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle, Dec. 23rd Beer Advent Calendar. Murky medium brown body crowned with a bubbly tan head that compresses into a half-inch mattress. Nice malty character here, yeasty, toasty, with sweet dates, crusty bread, and dark fruits all playing on the palate. Just a hint of sourness, maybe more of a lactic acidity providing a nice finish. Enjoyed it thoroughly. RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Deep brown pour with a frothy tan head. Aroma is dried fruits, roasted malts, subtle red wine nuances. Flavours replicate the nose with sour notes and a red wine barrel-esque finish. Alcohol provides a little bit of warmth. pintbypint (3673) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
330ml brown bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Brown pour, some haze. Nicely formed beige head, creamy edges, good stickiness. Spicy nose, caramel, some chocolate malt, nutty, hints of fruit. Taste has chocoalte and nutty malt notes, cherries and assorted fruits. Dries right out at the end, late yeasty notes. Carbonation is on the high side, body is medium. The alcohol stays well hidden. Overall a drinkable Belgian ale, but nothing I would seek out again. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Dec 23 CBAC. Big lasting brown head on dark brown head. Malty nose with fruit notes and a faint sour hint. Rich wine like malty flavour. Spice, hint of molasses. Nice winter beer.
