33cl bottle @ Keller Smell has some wine alcohol notes. Otherwise it’s rich and sweet. Appears coffee-black with almost no foam at all. Palate is quite light in a plesent way a bit coffee like. I would drink it again soon.

skortila (5873) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
Bottled. @ home. 33cl sample. The aroma has caramel, vanilla, sambuca/bitterkoekjes. Nice. Dark brown coloured beer with an off-white-beige, thin head.The taste is very sweet, boozy and has caramel, biscuit, raisin, some grape. Very alcoholic afterburn. Seems they really like that at Honsebrouck. Pitty, because the flavours in this beer are interesting and pleasant.

sfuen03 (362) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 6, 2014
Tan dark, quicly diminishing head on top of a very dark, slightly hazy, body. Intense aroma of raisins, plums, banana, clove, caramel. Medium to strong body, soft carbonation, alcohol very well masked and only felt in the amazingly warmly sweet, complex, long finish. Taste of licorice, black fruits, caramel, nuts. Very complex and deep.

martinrumsam (565) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with a hint of redness. Tan head. Deep aroma of brown sugar., winter fruit , bread , alcohol esters. Rich deep sweet taste like a Christmas cake heavily booze laden. Great example of the style. Very drinkable.

ICEatALAMO (1350) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. The pour is dark an murky, like a dirty lake. The aroma is mainly belgium yeast, dark fruit notes. The taste is boozy, a good belgium quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Full of flavours. Gold medal! Appearance wwith the Cuvée glass is more than incredible.

3.6
Moebbels (797) - FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
A clear very dark red body with a quickly dissipating tan-coloured head. Nose has sweet aromas of citrus peels, coriander, raisins, caramel and sherry. Taste is sweet and fruity with a dry and bitter finish. Carbonation is on the high side and the mouthfeel is rich, heavy and filling. The alcohol is readily detectable as a nice warm feeling, but is not harsh on the palate. This is a nice, well-made beer for slow enjoyment.

fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Poured from a 2013 bomber into a snifter brown with a thin white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Aroma is brown sugar banana. Flavor is sweetly Belgium. Figgy bready Booze there more than subtly. Balance of flavors and so well done. A way above average Belgium Strong Ale.

4.2
cernjoh (183) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Poured into a sifter from a bottle dated 2013-10-3 so it is about a year old since bottling. Aroma of this beer is of banana and some dark fruits. Appearance is a clear dark burgundy with a one finger tan head that dissipated rapidly. Taste is of bananas, molasses, and dark fruits. Palate is smooth with good carbonation. Overall a great beer that you should try. If you had it prior and did not have a great experience I suggest you try again. Aging does not always make beers taste better and some reviews complained that aged bottles of this were not good. Well I can say at 1 year of age this beer is great. Cheers.
