Very dark, coffee color - full rich body - staying head - effervescent nose - soft velvet feeling in the mouth - luscious. Malt character with a hoppy aftertouch. Monks used to fast on this type of beer for 40 days! No food, only beer.

DrnkMcDermott (3176) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2008
33 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown color, kicks up a big tan head in my tulip glass. Smells lightly sweet without the extra sugar smell of some Belgians. Takes me a while to get to the beer through all that foam, but what I get is a slightly fizzy body surrounding a pretty fresh malt taste. This bottle sat in the un-air-conditioned Foremost Liquors for goodness knows how long, but it’s held up pretty nicely. Definite brown malts at work, with fruitiness and slight tart of apple and vanilla. A bit of stickiness on my lip shows that this is still sweet, but well balanced. Background notes of ginger, lemon and nutmeg, too. A nice, complex brew.

zacgillbanks (5661) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2017
Bottle from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Hazy copper coloured with a thick white head. It has a rich malty and spicy dried fruity flavour followed by a warming candy sugar and plum finish. Very good.

Cybion (198) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours clear-ish dark reddish-brown with a small amount of dense light tan head. Thick lacing and minimal visible carb. Aroma is sweet and malty up front; muscavado sugar, mollasses, light spice (cinnamon, nutmeg?), rich honey. Edges of dark fruit, light yeasty spice. Taste is sweet and fruity; candied fruit and rich honey up front, dark fruits, syrup behind. Lightly bitter and fairly dry finish with lingering cereal/bread. Light yeasty spice, slight warmth to it throughout. Body is light, texture is a bit too watery, carbonation is moderate. Not amazing but perfectly drinkable and better than the tripel for sure. Probably gets a bit better as it warms.

jjsint (3609) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2017
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury St Edmunds (online order). Mid-brown, quite translucent with a bit of cream-coloured head. Light aroma of cola and hazelnut. Sweet taste, very nutty with heavy molasses and corn syrup notes. There's a little bit of hoppy bitterness near the finish, but it's pretty one-dimensional. Cherry soda and caramel malt in the aftertaste. Well carbonated. Drinkable but still disappointing.

tightslice (1530) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle from Willow Market in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is raisins, malts, fruited breads. Taste is soft fruits, malty syrup, breads, mild herbal things on the finish. A little bit thin on the backend. Wasn’t sure about this at first but definitely gets better as it warms and airs out.

Fules (1433) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 7, 2017
Közepes, tartós hab, barna szín. Illata alig érezhető, leginkább pörkölt malátás, némi meggyes beütéssel. Kissé édeskés, karamelles, malátás, enyhén meggyes, sötétgyümölcsös aromákkal. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Finom, jó arányokkal rendelkező sör.

stevoj (5881) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle from Brewers Haven. Dark brown, but almost clear, some light coming through. One finger light tan head. Aroma is dark, pit fruit, , some yeast. Taste starts with the dark pit fruit, raisins, prunes, adds some yeast, and some ashy, smoky notes. Sweet then savory, lingering dark fruity flavors (plums). Nice body upholds it all.

Milter (1080) - Nyborg, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2017
Virkelig en god øl, med masser af god fylde. Tilpas med bitterhed og sødme. Flot farve
