75 cl bottle, pours dark with a light head, aroma of dark fruits, malt, yeast and alcohol, taste follows the nose, very sweet, ok overall but nothing special.

Buena cerveza de gran graduacion y sabores muy suaves pero al mismo tiempo intenso. Con intensos aromas afrutados no es la tipica ale. Muy buen aroma con tintes suaves le pongo el pero q tenga poca espuma lo q hace perder un poco con la oxidacion. De buen color oscuro pero no llega a la negrez de una stout.

Aromă bogată, dulce și cu mult vin îndulcit (cahor), compot de vișine cu prune, ceva dulceață. Gust puternic, compot de prune concentrat ușor dulce, fructe ușor fermentate cu ceva amăreală pe planul doi și în postgust. Bună și bine făcută.

Tap- good size foamy head, murky dark brown color (in a good way), pretty complex aroma and flavor with strong malt, dark fruits, booze, mildly spicy finish, very good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.2-ounce bottle pours dark brown; nearly opaque. There’s a very small tan creamy head that quickly dissipates, leaving behind some lacing. Aroma: prunes, raisins, red grapes. Flavor: all of the above, just ramped up, with some molasses, figs, dates, and brown bread. Mouthfeel: full-bodied, rich. An excellent Belgian sipper.

Draft - Vintage 2014 - Prune and raisin, with dark fruit. Jet black with a decent beige head. Dark prune and raisin with a nice long finish.

Cristobal37 (1123) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2017
On tap. Light brown. Sweet malty aroma. Not my favorite. Abrasive alcohol, sweet and slightly medicinal. These are one of the only kinds of belgian ales that I have a hard time getting into. Too brown sugar and alcohol forward for me.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2017
Dark brown. Doesn’t pour with much head. The aroma is plummy, raisiny, vinous...brown sugar and date molasses. Deep, fruity...so much dark fruit and sugar. Touch of alcohol in the finish, but smooth and well-balanced.

Tap at Indewildeman, 18th May 17. Pours dark brown, aroma is sweet, syrup, cherry. Taste is dark fruit, some cherry, liquor, barrel, wood. Nice gear.

Draft. Pours dark brown-black color. Sweet, dark stone fruits and raisins. Chewy mouthfeel. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing much to say here. A belgian brune strong ale, a little on the sweet side, not getting an awful lot of cuvee here.
