UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Beautiful dark amber hazy appearance with a nice lacing, delicious head. Complex aroma with vanilla, toffee, roasted malt, dried fruits(plum?). The texture is oily, dried plum, forest-fruits, tons of roasted coffee beans, toffee and vanilla. Fine, strong liqueric and coffee aftertaste.

Reddish brown to dark brown beer. Little cloudy. Dark brown sediment. Beige soft head, non stable, little adhesive. Aroma: alcohol, dried fruits, overripe fruit, caramel. MF: soft carbon, somewhat creamy, full body. Taste: caramel, dark chocolate, mocha, ripe fruits, cloves. Aftertaste: mocha, hop bitter, but mostly a nice acidic finish to balance the sweetness. Really good beer. I didn’t know I liked brown ones so much. ;-)
Currently drinking while typing. After pouring you have some lovely full aromas of sweet sugary malts, brown sugar, caramel, plum, raisin, dough and yeasts. Absolutely brilliant head! Big, creamy, foamy tan coloured head which holds a great structure throughout, a deep chocolate brew sits underneath it. Tastes very nice and noteably light considering its percentage, good bready, yeast, dough, rum, raisin, brown sugars and a gentle metallic twang from the hops on the initial aftertaste which slows into a slightly dry feel with cereal in the back. Great feel in the mouth, nice carbonation and feels full but suprisingly light! Beautiful creamy head too which is fantastic. Very nice beer, I will definitely be buying again!

brown colour, huge beige-ish creamy head; aroma of dried plum, maybe some cherry, herbal notes, biscuit and caramel; taste is the same; great beer kapusil (1429) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 19, 2016
0.33l bottle. Dark amber body with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, figs, toast and reisins. Taste of caramel, toast, cocoa, floral hops and reisins. Quite sweet with a medium body. The finish has some warming alcohol to it but not harsh at all. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown,very little head. Nose is slightly sweet and with raisins, toffee, caramel, prunes- really delicious. Taste is a full bitter-sweet. Sticky and with dark Belgium chocolate, toffee, caramel, and bitterness. Very enjoyable. Medium body and i liked much better than the Pater. gyllenbock (9156) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle. The color of the beer was very nice, dark red. Foam was large and white. Aroma contained some syrup, bread, dried fruit and some alcohol.
The taste was even more interesting than the smell, a lot of malt, but above all a sweetness that I liked. There were also elements of raisins, alcohol, dried fruit and marzipan. Clearly an interesting and quite musty beer. TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Rich reddish brown with a thick beige head. Dark dried fruits and bread; caramel. Little bit of anise and toffee with a light balancing bitterness. Medium body with slick alcohol.
The aroma isn’t mind blowing but classic Belgian flavors at work. alethol (133) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2015
Pours murky brown with small head that quickly disappears. Aromas of brown sugar, figs, malt. Tastes really nice: plums, raisins, malt. Well balanced, creamy, full. Very nice beer.
