COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Belle tête crémeuse, forte mais agréable et onctueuse au palet ! Un régal qui porte bien son nom

Poured out a dark brown with a tan head.The taste was caramel lightly spiced and overly sweet with a moderate bitterness. You wouldn’t know it was high alc. Worth trying once but probably wouldn’t buy again.

colore ambrato scuro, schiuma compatta e persistente, aroma poco presente con sentori di lievito, pera, coriandolo e pepe. Al palato malto tostato, iniziale leggero sapore ferroso lascia il campo alle spezie e al luppolo, birra equilibrata secca con finale amaro.

Dark red/brown liquid, large head. Strong, sweet aroma of malt. Medium body, very strong carbonation. Taste is sweet, with a hint of alcohol.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Wrażenie na pewno zniekształcone przez gushing, który się objawił po odkapslowaniu. W smaku czuć było wysokie wysycenie i teraz pytanie, czy to nadal efekt gushingu, czy tak miało być? Typowe belgijskie ciemne.

Bottle. It poured dark brown with a big frothy tan head. The aroma was dark fruit, caramel and spices. There was a moderate bitterness level.

Sötét szín. Nagyon harmonikus ízvilággal. Ugyanakkor még sem ízlett annyira, mint példáult a Tremens.

Copy and paste my rating of Bobeline Dark Label, nothing to see, just rebranding. Bouteille 33cl, wow, never saw this Huyghe beer coming thanks to its bottle design, likely alias as well, see Delirium Nocturnum. BB 09/2019 Ambrée, col épais jaunâtre voire blanc-cassé. Arôme au nez typiquement belge, qcq épices en rétro avec un fruité noir de raisin sec et figue. Malté, multi grains. Palais reste très belge surtout avec la levure, sucre résiduel qui pousse le tout à quais 9%, fruits noirs et sec; pruneaux, raisins, dates, petite touche mielleuse, épice de coriandre sur la fin avec une pointe de réglisse. Malts pils, cara pâle et Munich. Amertume noble qui perce en retrait. Correcte, mais rien qui risque de redéfinir les bières belges.

3.3
malushky (158) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
330 ml bottle from Theater of Wine. Pours clear dark brown with large, tanned head. Warm and yeasty aroma, dough, hint of alcohol, herbal, fresh and pleasant. Taste is strong, malty, warm, dough, coriander, a bit alcoholic at the end. Very high carbonation, slightly bitter aftertaste, medium-bodied. Decent beer, but nothing special.
