Had for the first time in a Roman cellar in Brugge Belgium. Wonderful beer - absolutely perfect for time and place. Wish I could get it in the states. Probably my best beer experience in Europe.

Bire brune extra forte (9,5 % abv...) brasse par De Proef . Bouteille bascule en fer et bouchon de porcelaine avec caoutchouc: ce nest pas ce que je prfre, mais voil Par contre la srigraphie en blanc du vieil homme la canne est trs sympa, et apparemment ce serait den ouden advokaat... Sint Niklaas... On fait confiance Couleur brun roux splendide. Clart nette, mais attention au fort dpt de levure. Bulles par milliers trs fines au centre. Mousse beige caramel trs crmeuse et paisse. Armes dlicieux de malt et levure, pruneau, amandes, feuille de marronnier. 1re bouche veloute, lexceptionnelle prise de malt, avec une nuance de ft de bois, du cognac et une trs fine pointe de fume. Arrire-bouche de fruits mrs, longue. 2me bouche savoureuse, de trs nombreux accents de trs grands cognacs. 3me bouche superbe de vieux fts de mrissement. Arrire-bouche trs complte et longue. La longueur part sur de la muscade, une pointe de rglisse, des fruits noirs mrs. La levure est dune grande veine avec une amertume parfaite et une grande suavit. Elle est trs complte. Lalcool est trs bien dos, et constitue un magnifique soutien aux multiples saveurs. La finale part sur des notes de noix de cajou, du chne et du pain dpices, et se prolonge par des bois exotiques dont le santal... Superbe. Conclusion: une bire vraiment complte dans tous ses aspects, de trs belle facture, qui tmoigne dune trs grande recette. Elle est trs jolie dabord, et propose des saveurs superbes.

This is in my Top 5 of all time..Tip buy a case and let it age for a year... Taste is amazing. You know it is ready to drink when syrup is coming out at the end. Requires patience though.

huineman (627) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 6, 2015
Pours amber with frothy tan head. Mostly secondary aromas, such as yeast, bread, porridge, lemon pie, dry pasta, yogurt, even a dash of vinegar. Fresh and powerful. Metallic and very, very sour. No bitterness. Difficult but rewarding.

Many thanks for this swing-top bottle to JefVerstraete. Pianka spora kremowa i bezowa. Kolor zmecony strasznie brazowo brubatny. Zapach kasztanow. W smaku figi, daktyle, kasztany i nieco slodkosci w typie sliwka w czekoladzie. Lekka gorycz i wytrawnosc w tle. Metne i pieknie wygladajaca butelka. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Pijalne piwo choc nieco przyciezkawe.

Ernest (7510) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, fully lasting. Body is murky medium brown, dense particles of all sizes, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (nutty, toasted dark bread, caramel, milk chocolate), with notes of cask wood, toffee, light note of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Quite nice.

dnstone (2882) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Deep brown in color with an excellent sudsy, off-white head. Smells like a bag of dry roasted malt. Super malty with moderate sweetness. Really a malt-bomb, like chewing straight malt. Deceptive strength.

erickok (5686) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2011
Dark red body. Big head with big bubbles. Caramel, peach, sweet bread, cane sugar and cloves. Very smooth body really nice. Slightly sticky as well. Full flavour with nice bitter mouthfeel and a very long aftertaste thats slightly alcoholic. Unexpectedly good drink. (33cl bottle)

A bottle from Utobeer, Southborough market. En exellent belgian ale, brown redish colour, big head, lots of sweet fruits, hops and yeast to balance. Strong and still very drinkable. Good looking bottle too.
