KoNrRiI (1494) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 bottle. A hazy, dark brown color with a small, off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is composed of caramel malts, port wine, and smoked dark brown ham. Taste of barrel, wood, smoked ham, a touch of chocolate - it is a tad vinous. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and also sweet and chocolaty. Overall not a bad beer, like everything could be improved.

330 cl bottle Another wonderful Belgian beer, dark, nice aroma, good feel on the tongue. Nicely balanced with alcohol, a bit bitter but at the right level for me. This would be nice to try on tap....

invinoveritas (156) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle at restaurant. Cloudy orange-brown with a rich nose - think oud, alcohol, Christmas and a leather saddle. The nose sets the tone for the taste - intense leather with lavashak, stone fruit, and some well controlled alcohol, which lends the beer a good body. This one is quite good actually.

4.3
minutemat (5419) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
330ml bottle from Verheyde, Watou. Pours dark brown, good cream head. Aroma is dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel. Taste is smooth, well-balanced full flavour, perhaps not as sweet as a Belgian dubbel but in the same ball-park. Very tasty indeed.

LeWorm (61) - FRANCE - MAY 10, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2016 On tap @ la tireuse Toulouse. Robe foncée, tête légère.Nez caramel, fruits rouges. Bouche toffee, c?est très caramelisé, extrêmement riche et complexe. Palais très long et sucré.

Shark_Pants (737) - AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2016
Toffee coloured pour, relatively clear, reasonable sized beige head. Sweet aromas of caramel, plums, dates, bread. The sweetness is also reflected in the taste but with a strong hoppiness as well - burnt caramel, brown toast, plums, cola, earthy and spicy hops. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied and slick. Quite good without being outstanding.

Belle brune avec mousse crémeuse. Nez : fruits rouges, houblon, levures. Bouche : cerise, fruits rouges, biscuit, caramel. Belle longueur avec finale légèrement épicée. Belle brune !

Chudwick (3181) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 6, 2016
33cl bottle best by July 2017 - candy and dark fruit nose. Sip adds basement aromas. Complex flavors for sure. Sweet. Earthy finish.

3.5
ForlornHope (514) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours red-brown in colour with a tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich malt, some yeast notes and spicy hop. Taste is sweet to start with some bitterness to balance. Malt driven flavours with more spice, berry fruits and peppery hop. The body is slightly thin for a beer of this strength, but very pleasant all the same.

3.6
Manslow (1639) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Butelka 0,75l pita w domu. Kolor ciemnobrązowy, piana obfita, mocna. Aromat karmel i kasztany? łagodne, w smaku karmel i trochę wiśni, średnia goryczka. Bardzo dobre piwo, finisz z mocną goryczką.
