3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours clear mahogany with a moderate tan head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of toasted malts, caramel, apple, raisin, flowers and a touch of spice. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with notes of brown sugar, fruit, Belgian yeast and a touch of spice. The finish is moderate in length, malty and mildly spicy. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent strong dark Belgian ale, but not terribly interesting. 2013-02-25

Aroma di miele, leggermente balsamica.
Al palato miele, leggera nota di frutti rossi, alcool ben evidente, coda caramellata mista ad erbaceo e leggero cacao.

Colore Ambra scuro con ampia schiuma beige chiaro molto frizzantina. Aroma abbastanza piatto di malto e dark fruits. Al palato dolce e fruttata, bella alcolica, bassa carbonazione. Non troppo rotonda e corposa. cattaneopapa (391) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015

A nice cloudy amber colour. Fairly sweet and spicy but with a lingering malty, bitter aftertaste. Got this in a sampler pack and expected it would be my favourite of the bunch, but I was a bit disappointed. Not as flavourful as the red and blonde.

Bottle in a gift box from the LCBO. Pours a hazy brown, creamy head, lots of lacing. Nose is spicy with sweet malt. Tastes sweet, malty, a touch bitter, caramel is the dominant flavour. I liked this one. Strangebrewer (1308) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
bottle. Poured muddy red-brown with a frothy mocha head. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, yeasty. Medium body, effervescent carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet boozy flavour, caramel malt, peppery with sightly sour notes. Alengrin (5374) - BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
Newish dark version of Boucanier, a hazy dark bronze ale with very estery nose, chocolatey, caramelly, some DMS (cooked cabbage), bread, peach, orange, dates, raisins, pear; malt sweet taste, strong estery yeastiness, sourish note, slick and full body, candi sweet finish with brandyish alcohol and floral hoppiness. Not very refined for a ’massieve ale’, I prefer their Gulden Draak way above this. Werckmeister (3184) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 12, 2014
bottle at Känguruh Pub in Vienna. brown, redish clear color. off white head. smells of dried fruits, honey, cherry & plums. full bodied, light fizziness, tastes of sour cherry, well balanced sweet & bitterness, alcohol apparent lesifflebiere (1887) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Un peu trouble, cette brune épaisse aux accents olfactifs rappelant une dubbel d’abbaye émet des notes de prunes, de raisins rouges et de cassonade. La bouche est très fruitée, surtout du raisin ; des saveurs très franches, mais également accessibles, dans un accord bien fait où l’alcool se fait discret. Une bien bonne bière, plus simple que plusieurs de son style, mais riche et enivrante.
