Ysok02 (1826) - Mons, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2016
Robe brune aux reflets ambrés, mousse peu persistante. Nez assez banal sur des notes chocolatées, des fruits secs, un peu de houblon. Bouche plus intéressante que le nez avec son attaque acidulée, un coté malté qui domine, une bulle onctueuse et une finale acidulée. Une bière de Noël agréable.

Icedwarf (1793) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2014
Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en kruidig, caramel, chokolade, noten. Blijft lang hangen. Uitstekend bier, smaakt ook in de zomer.

Clear amber color, small white head. Alcohol, biscuit and caramel malt aroma. Begins sweet-ish with caramely notes, than turns to more alcohol with roasty finish. Medium body soft carbonation. Okay.

diabel (1721) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 Bottled Deep black body. Rocky, lightly brown head. Nose of malts: coffee, straw, molasses, ... with some liquor. Malty flavour (moderately bitter, moderately sweet) of coffee and fruits (raspberry, ...). Quite complex flavour. Well balanced, interesting but not extravagant.
