Hazy brown with a lasting off-white head. Sugary, caramel, licorice, roasted. Bitter, very sweet. Not all that good.

The looks of the beer are nice. The beer has a nice dark brown colour, with some hints of coppery red. The beer seems cloudy. On top of the beer a nice layer of yellowsih brown soft creamy foam is formed. Foam retention is average. After a while a nice soft drape is left. Nice looks.
The smell of the beer is very nice. It reminds me of some more Belgian Strong Ales. It has something in common with Rochefort. I like it. The smell is full and strong. I smell nice sweet malts, with aromas of caramel, syrup, sugar, a twist of liquorice. Nice. There are also some nice biter hop aromas. Besides this, there are nice creamy yeasty aromas. A bit doughy and creamy, nice. Good smell.
The taste is nice. There are some nice sweet malts, with hints of caramel, sugar, syrup, some liquorice. There is also a nice bitter holiness there. There are some mild tones of chocolate and coffee, very mild though and mainly bitter. The last thing I taste is a nice full creamy yeast flavour. It is well balanced. Nice.
The palate of the beer is nice. Full body, smooth, creamy and high carbonation. The finish contains nice sweet malts, warming alcohol and some bitter hops. Also nice in balance. The alcohol gives a nice tingly sensation on the tongue. All in all, a very good beer. Typical Belgian.
Un toque tostado, pero suave a la garganta. De espuma duradera y de color parduzco. Una cerveza negra muy diferente a todas las demás. maekchu (4069) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2017
Bottle from local Sake Marche store. Malty nose, with some spice, berries, yeast, and light alcohol fumes. Dark red-tinged brown color under a thick, long-lasting, beige head. Very thick lacing. Flavors of dark fruit, cola, tree bark (some indeterminate herb), and a light touch of bitterness in the finish. Full body, lightly warming. Not terrible but neither is it so impressive for a big Belgian strong ale. Pretty hot and not so much in flavor to fill it out. It does have a range of aromas and flavors, but they don't really add up to much. meatmanmd (183) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 24, 2017
Reddish brown with big beige head. Aroma is spicy sweet with dark fruit and caramel. Taste is light sweet with red wine tannins and sourness, woody bitter finish. Medium body with some alcohol bite. Nicely balanced and complex.

At Cambrinus, Bruges. Pours hazy dark brown with a lasting, big, frothy, tan head. The aroma contains caramel, dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruits, licorice, hops and spices. It tastes medium sweet and light bitter, ending almost cloying and a bit hoppy and spicy.; warming aclohol. Medium body, oily/slick texture, soft fizzy carbonation. Can't shake the feeling that something's off, it could have been better, perhaps in want of more richness... fombe89 (4093) - Asturias, SPAIN - SEP 13, 2017

Color marron oscuro, corona de espuma beige, aromas tostados con notas a caramelo, sabor caramelo final dulce cuerpo denso.
Dark red ale with intensely fizzy head. Pour carefully! Very obviously bottle conditioned. Might get another one in and keep it for a few years. Delicious beer but incredibly rich. Took me over an hour to finish. Porcellini (65) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 2, 2017
Excelente cerveza con espuma duradera y densa. Regusto a frutos secos y pany diversos aromas. smaynard6000 (1249) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2017
Bottle. Pours a very dark color with generous foamy beige head. Predominantly caramel malt aroma. Slightly sweet flavor with a bit of roasted malt and caramel notes along with some fruitiness. Medium-to-full bodied with a bit of hoppy bitterness to balance the sweetness in the finish. Quite nice.
