Bottle - Poured a dark ruby red with a fluffy head. Aroma is lots of malt and spices and fruits. You can definitely smell the alcohol. Mouthfeel is very heavy but it's expected from a Belgian ale. Lots of carbonation. Lots of dark malts and fruit favors. Great beer. Will buy again.

Bottle from Lidl.
Yeasty. Very. Alcohol did the proper job here.
Dark amber color. Very sweet taste. Totally. It’s that sweet I cannot actually enjoy it as it is sweet from the begging till the end. DejanSt (80) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 21, 2017

Had this on nitro tap. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy, creamy white head. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum, and caramel. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, caramel, toffee, and clove. Has a smooth and creamy body. Delicious. Anibyl (8) - - AUG 19, 2017 does not count
Strong brown bitter ale with pleasant smell. In fact it is very Belgian, strong and tasty. I just don’t like its bitter taste.

Pours a beige coloured large foamy head. Has a coppery, light brown appearance. Dirty lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, malts, spices and dark type fruits. Flavours of roasted malts, dark fruits (raisins, plums) toasty and nutty malts. Hints of citrus hops but quite faint. Chocolate notes in the finish, with hints of caramel. Alcohol is just barely noticeable, nicely balanced. Full bodied, sweet and bitter well balanced. Puckering and chalky mouthfeel. Goes down very smoothly. kluczbork (458) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle. Aroma- intensive dark fruits- figs and raisins, spicy notes and brown sugar. Dark copper, a bit hazy, with a high, beige head, which quickly reduces to a ring. Taste- the same, well-balanced and intensive combination. Medium-bodied, with a medium carbonation. Distinct, classy beer. djcampbell (260) - Moravany, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 4, 2017
Vynikající strong ale, jeden z nejlepších černých piv, co jsem kdy měl. Masivní říz, bohatá kávovo-čokoládová chuť a hustá krémová pěna. serch_kaiba (8) - - JUL 30, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Bottiglia 33 cL e teku, pub (Valhalla, Pavia). Colore rosso mattone, schiuma chiara non molto persistente. Al naso è sorprendentemente delicata, profumi dolciastri, soprattutto caramello. In bocca è molto particolare: apertura dolce, arrivano subito il malto e l’alcol. Solo in chiusura si sente il luppolo, comunque molto leggero. Corpo molto consistente. Una birra che sa davvero tanto di pane e di vino. Retrogusto biscottato.

Okay, so, the bottle does stand out. Cellared for a few months after a happy acquisition at the neighborhood HEB. Obtained in the 750 ml version it is poured into a waiting tulip glass. It shows a very dark body with red highlights and gives a lasting head of tightly bubbled light tan foam. I lift the glass for a smell, dried fruit, a bit floral, all inviting to me. A drink, oh my, nice. I get plum, red grapes, bread, all with a welcome malty background. Warming up as I drink more, the alcohol is present but not pushy. Pretty doggone good.
