Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with some beige foam. Nose has boozy caramel, nitty and displays some prunes. Taste is dry, sweetness subdued, plums and prunes strong in taste. Bit boozy but still 9% does not really show. Nice Belgian.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2017 Botella 33 cl en Zevende Hemel. Averbode. 10..09..2017. Lote y fcpref ilegibles. Color oscuro marrón caoba casi negro con espuma beige oscuro. Sabores maltas tostadas con toques ligeros realices, caramelos tostados incluso algo de cacao. Frutos secos nueces, avellanas. Cuerpo ligero a medio algo espumoso y gaseoso. Buena y ligeramente torrefacta incluso. Buena, para repetir.

jamaty (2253) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 28, 2017
Caoba rojiza, muy oscura. Espuma ocre que promto desaparece. Aroma rico, de frutas rojas, cerezas, licórico también. En boca bastante cuerpo y gas efervescente, sin molestar. Sabor complejo, de tono licórico, algo de chocolate, de nuevo cierta acidez frutal de cerezas, y caramelo, con predominio quizas dulce. Postgusto calórico, donde aparece más el alcohol, y bastante rico, de nuevo frutal.

Strong pleasant taste but a little bit stronger than perfect. It is good for people that love dark beer .

nathanvc (694) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2017
At De Kalvarieberg, Bruges. Pours hazy dark brown with a lasting, small, foamy, tan head. The aroma contains brown sugar, ripe fruits, caramel, dark chocolate, some yeast and spices. It tastes medium to heavy sugary sweet and very light spicy bitter. Medium body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. A bit unbalanced but enjoyable.

jjsint (3492) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle from Cafe Bruxelles, Leicester. Dark brown with uneven off-white head. Cola, walnut, Berty and light chocolate in the aroma. Sweet taste, almost cloying but brought back from the brink by the peppery hop note. Drier finish. Heavy carbonation in the body with plum, salted caramel and liquorice in the aftertaste. Lovely.

Beamer (115) - Malden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2017
Lekker bruin biertje zoet met een nauwelijks merkbare bittere afdronk, zeker voor herhaling vatbaar, mooie rustige smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
