Clear dark brown beer, creamy irregular beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: pretty sweet, caramel, pretty oxidized (obviously), some hint of chocolate, orange peel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, caramel, very oxidized, spicy touch, some orange peel. Aftertaste: sweet, oxidized, caramel, some cardboard, chocolate notes. Has aged very well. Still very decent after +15 years!
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a medium frothy tan head. Aroma of bread, caramel, raisins, dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Medium body with a sticky sweet finish. Alengrin (5376) - BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
Old rating (and I won’t get a chance to re-rate as apparently it has been discontinued now). Heaviest and ’rarest’ of the three Ciney beers, with a deep burgundy colour and thick pale beige head; biscuit, caramelly malts, sweet with spices (liquorice), bit metallic, alcohol warmth in the finish. Not horrible, but not good either. I for one will not miss this. kraddel (8156) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2014

(2001), 25cl. Head:beige colored foam. Color: brown. Aroma: hops, malt. Taste: bitter. Palate: dry, medium body, lively CO2, bitter finish. Overall: ok.
Standard Belgian except for that distinct caramel taste. Original while not a vast diversion. Koelschtrinker (20412) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Riecht alkoholisch und leicht nach Himbeeren. Süffiges Zeug, den Alkohol schmeckt man so gut wie gar nicht. Fruchtig und erfrischend, zum Ende her herb werdend. Feines Zeug zum öfteren trinken.

Dark beer with beige foam. Too sweet for me. Tasted like caramel and leather. The worst of the Ciney beers. leopoldgerard (8) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2011 does not count
looking at all these high ratings im thinking we had a bad one. it smelt funny and it had this funky skunked taste.

7 years over age at Kulminator. Good sized head but don’t hold long. Sweet-sour, caramel, ftuity smell. Taste is earthy, sweet, red fruits. A bit of carbonation still in the beer.
