Pours a deep burgundy with tan head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet malt with dark berries and caramel. Mouth is deep and warming. Taste has berries, a little chocolate, light yeast, and citrus. Very smooth and sticky. Great beer. I think it reminds me of a less complex version of the Abby de Rocs Bruin.
Bottle from AJ’s Beer Warehouse. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, chocolate and caramel. brian.b (20) - - AUG 3, 2017
Good brew. It has a bright front end. The finish is smooth, but lacks the deep flavor notes of a top tier quadruple like St. Bernardus or Rochefort. Overall a great beer.

Bottle. Dark brown opaque with just a little beige foam. An aroma of dark fruit add rich malts. The flavor brings even more dark fruit. Dates and raisins. Alcohol is also tasted and it comes close to over powering the other flavors. BlazerT (1198) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Brownish, moderately hazy with small, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is nice and smooth, caramel, berries, raisins, tired fruits, plums, nice peppery notes with Belgian yeasty character. In overall nice, balanced, not so annoying. esp0r (2924) - NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017

Pours dark brown with a red hue, thin beige head. Smell of dark fruits, prunes, some toast, dark malts, very sinful and inviting. Heavy sweet, dark and dried fruits, plum, toast, hints of chocolate, caramel, alot of complexity, moderate bitter, cherry stone tail. A very nice beer!
Pours a small amount of bubbly head but goes away quickly. Leaves very little lace. Has a dark coppery appearance and is fairly cloudy. Aromas of malted barley, toffee and very mild hops. Flavours are mostly yeasty with barley, malts and light earthy hops. Very well spiced with a touch of sweetness (sugar in ingredients). Some notes of toffee as well and toasty. Alcohol is just slightly apparent, amazing considering the 10.5% abv for a 341ml bottle. Nice warming sensation and has a drying mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Full bodied. Somewhat bitter in the finish with spices. Awesome. bigpuddle (2) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JUN 29, 2017 does not count
I received this as a gift. It’s a big, bold flavor, with a great body. It’s not my all time favorite, but really nice. ilovedarkbeer (2744) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Pours a reddish brown color with a canvas colored head. Notes of candi sugar, figs, milk chocolate, and spice. Feels a bit thin for the style. drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 24, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Nice creamy caramel notes with a strong smoothness. Sweetness but not too much. Dried fruit. Vighals (4233) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2017
