On tap at Elizabeth Station. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is sour, fruity, some barrel notes. Taste is very fruity, caramel forward, slightly sour. Very nice. Echon (564) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 11, 2017
Dark brown. Fruity, lightly spicy, and very yeasty. Notes of kandis or caramel. Strong, sweet and pungent taste that ends with a dry, pungent and boozy finish. Medium body, and foaming carbonation. Overall, a very good strong ale. A bit too pungent and boozy, though. Not as drinkable as Arabier. seuinoz (276) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2017
Aroma of Chocolate and spices.Appearance is black as night. Taste Chocolate and licorice. Palate . medium body, moderate feel, average carbonation. Overall would have gotten a perfect rating if i didn’t get small amounts of alcohol burn. Besides that a great belgian strong ale. Zlotta (3816) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2017
0.33 l bottle from ’drankgigant.nl’, best before February 2017, cellared for almost two years. Foam streams slowly out of the bottle... Clear, very dark reddish brown with a massive, foamy, very dense, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, moderately fruity, slightly vinous and a bit yeasty-spicy aroma of caramel, raisins, figs, red grapes and oak. Sweetish, a bit sourish, malty, moderately fruity and quite yeasty-spicy taste of caramel, red grapes, oak, marzipan, candied cherries and a touch of chocolate, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, dry, a little tart and a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, heavily effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very tasty and really complex, almost refreshing with that sourish, typical De Dolle yeast touch. The excessive carbonation is quite annoying again though, this almost needs to be decanted as most of their beers. ebone1988 (2122) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2017

Taste is dark fruit, woody, caramel, spice, some robust alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, really bubbly but not spritzy, dark fruit and woody dry aftertaste. Overall, this is real good.

33cl bottle purchased @ La caisse de bières. Notes de fruits mûrs et de caramel. davidf93 (177) - Stellenbosch, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 2, 2017
Murky prune brown reddish colour. Off-white head with nice head retention. A tad alcohol, great belgian yeasty taste. Interesting aftertaste, almost like marmite & veggie mite flavours. Smell of dark fruits. A real sipper. likeatrainwreck (572) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017

Birra di marrone scuro con riflessi di rame. Schiuma fine e persistente. All’olfatto aromi erbacei e fruttati. Al palato il corpo è rotondo, sentori di frutta come prugna e susine, bilanciate da note di liquirizia. Un’ottima birra. Milter (1028) - Nyborg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2017
Wow. Virkelig en god belgisk ale. Tilpas med sødme og bitterhed, En rimelig kraftig øl, med høj alkoholprocent.
