SkillsFactory (676) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2016
Di color rame, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di miele, leggermente balsamica. Al palato miele, leggera nota di frutti rossi, alcool ben evidente, coda caramellata mista ad erbaceo e leggero cacao. Corpo medio, ben carbonata, forse una bottiglia non troppo in forma.

lello4ever (916) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2015
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 (378) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
33cl bottle part of 6 pack from LCBO, Greektown in Toronto, ON. 9% alc./vol. Pours an opaque ruby brown colour woyh one finger of lasting off white head. Mild traditional Belgian Ale aroma with some fruitiness. Complex taste which follow the aroma with notes of cherries. Excellent concealment of the high alcohol content.

sever2morrow (2) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015 does not count
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.

Hammy78 (968) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
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 (1272) - 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 (5087) - 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.

lesifflebiere (1817) - 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.
