Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Pours dark brown color with a large head. Aroma is very spicy and malty with caramel sweetness, dried fruits, also some chocolaty notes, bready. Creamy smooth chocolaty and bready flavor with subtle spice notes, dried fruits, some earthy tones and very faint wooden tones. Pleasant, alcohol deceptively well hidden.
Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of malt and sweet yeast. Nearly opaque brown / black color, deep tan head that stays at 1", lace cobwebs. Taste is rich malt that grows more caramel-y as it moves through a medium carbonated swallow, then dark chocolate on the way to a finish that has only a hint of hops. Big and malty, but not heavy in the belly. The alcohol is not strong. A really memorable full-bodied Belgian Strong. I’d buy it again. vincentvega72 (886) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2016
Donker (bijna zwart) met fijne schuimkraag. Beetje zurig aroma (herfstbladeren). Smaken van toffee, mokka, licht zurig. Licht zoetige afdronk. Niet de beste van Het Nest maar meer dan behoorlijk. Sarpa (1649) - FINLAND - AUG 26, 2016

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit and liquorice.
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.
Medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dried fruit and liquorice.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is rather weak however and the palate could have been better. The flavour is great despite all this!

Just a little too sweet but nice and warming. Flavors of overripe prunes and raisins. Maybe mid july isn’t the best time of year to drink this, but again they have shown they know how to brew.
Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.
