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.

Luneylane (119) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 2, 2016
A bottle from lApero off licence, drunk at home. Aroma: very rich, fruity chocolate. Appearance: opaque, very dark brown, a finger of tan froth on top. Palate: medium-bodied, lively carbonation, astringent finish. Taste: pretty boozy, completely devoid of the candy sweetness of Tremens, predominantly bitter. A sour element at the finish imparts an unfortunate ashtray taste. Better than Tremens, not as good as Red.

Chocolate, caramel, spices, dark brown with a good head, medium body, medium carbonation, some bitterness, alcohol, chocolate and dried fruits...just the pinky elefant can be so great when winter is coming, in belgium or at my home. (Drink belgian beer when outside is cold is my idea of beer, i miss you Belgium).

MetalMurphy (571) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2016

PlutonowyMan (662) - POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Kolor ciemno czerwony, br?zowy, mocno zamglony. Drobno ziarnista piana, o barwie be?owej, d?ugo nie zmniejsza swoich rozmiarw, pozostawia mnstwo w?sw. Aromat zio?owy, przyprawowy, jest pieprz, jest s?odowo??, troch? ciemnych owocw i kwiatw. W smaku s? ciemne owoce, pieprzowa ostro??, dalej ciemne s?ody, delikatnie palone, karmel i nieco kandyzowanych owocw. Na finiszu goryczka (IBU26), lekka, sucha, przypalona. Wysycenie jest zdecydowanie za wysokie, momentalnie "zapycha". Alkohol ma charakter rozgrzewaj?cy, nie przeszkadza.

chucklemation (1541) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a foamy, long-lasting off-white head that leaves behind plenty of lacing. Aroma is caramel and toffee malts with Belgian yeast notes. Flavor is sweet caramel and toffee, with coriander spice, touches of roast, and Belgian yeast. Well-carbonated, with a smooth body, boozy. Quite good.
