Bottle @ home. Aroma is red fruits, caramel, some molasses. Okay. Flavour is medium bitterness, mostly of roasted malt, some fruity notes, murky molasses in the finish. Good beer, just not really my thing.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2012
This Belgian strong beer has an aroma full of spices and has a dark brown colour. The tast is lightly bitter with a really long finish. A great quality beer, even on Belgian standards!

sebletitje (9643) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle sample @ 5de Brugs Bier festival. Cuivrée/beige, col ocre épais. Arôme fruité noire; date et figue malt caramel avec une note de basse-cour de ferme, léger houblon. En bouche, fruits noirs, alcool réchauffant avec un fini allant sur le lactique, qui me rappelle un yaourt à la fraise, note malté caramel avec sur la fin une pointe torréfiée. Fini herbacé, sec voire noisette en poudre, léger chocolat avec un tout petit ajout de houblon pour l’amertume. Un peu loin du style français de Bière de Garde que j’imaginais plus proche de la Saison Wallonne. Ici, un profile nettement plus belge dans la lignée plus proche d’une double/triple d’abbaye et son palais épais de levure et blé/orge peut dévier sur un style allemand.
