bruin biertje met fijne bruine kraag, blijft goed aan de rand kleven. aroma is wat beperkt, mout en zoetje zijn voornamelijk aanwezig. smaken zijn redelijk zoet (bruine suiker), licht bitter, licht fruitig (gedroogd donker fruit), medium body, glad/zacht mondgevoel, goed gebalanceerd, iets licht pepertje in de afdronk, goede kruidencombinaties. lekker !

Brune acajou, effervescence moyenne-faible, col beige trs fin. Armes de pain dpices, caramel, fruits foncs, petite amertume rglisse, un rien aqueuse, la cassonade se fait un peu trop sentir.
Earlier Rating: 7/5/2013 Total Score: 3.1
Brune trouble, ptillance moyenne, pratiquement pas de mousse. En vrac, il y a du sucre candi, du caramel, un peu de fruits, du biscuit et des pices. Avec, en bonus, une amertume houblonne en fin de bouche.

davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Best by January, 2013...oops. 33cl bottle into a Chimay goblet. Thanks to Doug for this mysterious rarity. A - Pours a super hazy dirty brown body that is almost scary to hold up to the light. Two fingers worth of dense and creamy light khaki foam. The foam just hangs around forever with a ridiculous amount of lacing and retention to back it up. S - Decent aroma of dark fruits and spices. Lighter notes of caramel apple and bready malts. T - Malts, spices, ripe apple, caramel and dark fruits. Its decent enough but there is on odd almost corn/adjunct sweetness on the very end. Im not sure if its oxidation creeping in or what, but it is not great. Thankfully it has that great velvety and well carbonated quad/BSDA mouth feel to it. O - I guess this one isnt distributed to the US? Its decent enough, but its just lacking compared to the other big Belgian names.
