Bottle from Pallieter85, many thanks. Hazy dark brown color with small off-white head. Fruity aroma with earthy notes. Very strange mostly alcoholic taste with caramel, sweet malt, chocolate, some earthy notes and little bit harsh bitterness in finish. But somehow I liked it. kraddel (8720) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2013
pours brown, verry small white foam, smell is very little
taste is sweet, bitter, chemical-like , light mouthfeel. very unique but not my piece of cake teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 23, 2013
33cl green bottle. It pours a deep ruby almost brown colour with a huge beige foam. Aroma is big on sweet notes with loads of candi sugar, toffee and molasses. Some caramel and vanilla and only slight hops. Taste is sweet and umbalanced again, with only a tad of bitterness in the end. Big sweet caramel and candi sugar notes. Some alcohol as well. Body is quite thick and overcarbonated. This one needs a vigorous pour and a swirl for sure. Overall, not bad by any means but overly sweet to me and a tad boozy. 77ships (10770) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Got a 75 cl. bottle for free from DHL as a goodbye gift. THX! Cool Service. Brownish, hazy with an off-white head. Ripe and overripe darkfruit in the nose, caramel, sweet with some booze comming through, sweet leaves, brown sugar in the nose. Bitter herbal in the taste, presumably the hops, leaves, burned sugar, caramel, lots of bitter leaves, lots of bitterness and some booze, very bitter leaves & herbs in the back. Medium, light oily body. Interesting & very bitter for a Belgian beer, enjoyed their blond housebeer more. Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle in our room at DHVL. The only non-sour I drank in Belgium! It pours very dark ruby brown, with a massive beige head. The nose is pine, citrus fruit, candied peel, roasted malt and underlying spice. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, pine, tar, assertive bitterness, dark fruit/berry, ash and some spice, with a pretty dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and well balanced. Sort of like a Belgian Black IPA!

Bottle @ DHVL - thanks to the staff for the generous gift! The pour’s deep brown with a large, creamy white head. The nose is toasted grain, light soy sauce and chocolate donut. The taste is light steak sauce tang, some chocolate, twigs and vanilla. Light body, nice. Balanced, not too sweet. Overall, good. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2012

Bottle at 2 be in Brugge, of all places. I hadn’t felt great about leaving De Heeren van Liedekercke without trying this one, and imagine my surprise when I found this exclusive beer at a different bar. madmitch76 (25286) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany with a huge tight off white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity with some leafy hops, pears, and mild earthiness.
The flavor is far fruitier and sweeter than the aroma lets on. The beer has a nice hop bitterness that balances this. The bitterness and nuttiness grow more prevalent as the beer warms.

Post Borefts I jaunt to De Heeren van Liedekercke. Hazy dark amber beer. A little toffee caramel on the nose (very light). Caramel malt with a little fruit and light sourness. Pretty drinkable.
Bottle shared at DHL during Paul’s Pre-Wedding Beer Weekend. Pours cloudy auburn with a dense, foamy head. Fresh, piney and lightly yeasty aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor with toasted sugar, light caramel, bubblegum, spices, and very mild fruity tang. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Mildly warming to finish with sweet and toasty malts tinged with caramel, pine, some candi sugar, mild citrus. Dries out nicely with some sweet, toasty grassiness, mild yeast and dark, toasty candi sugar. Very good. Strong yet still highly drinkable.
