Outstanding Belgian small batch - Full flavor brune with just the right amount of sweetness and you would never know you are drinking almost 10 % alcohol. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
Brown coloured. Loads of sediment in the bottom of the 75cL bottle. Lovely aroma of spices. I find cinnamon, cardamom, clove, coriander and some orange peel. The flavour is also spicy with herbal notes and herbal bitterness in the finish. Complex and pleasant. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2008
Bottle (from Cracked Kettle). Deep reddish brown colour with huge beige foamy head. Aroma is at first very much licorice, then turns into spices and a lot of citrus fruits. Flavour is quite much licorice along with spices. Not that much fruityness in the flavour. Some mildly burning alcohol in the aftertaste, otherwise alcohol is very well hidden. Superb. tderoeck (10195) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2013
22/X/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: II/2014 (2013-995) fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Clear ruby to purple beer, small creamy irregular beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit dusty, lots of dried fruits, overripe banana, caramel, sweet and sugary, raisins. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of dried fruits, come chocolate, vanilla, sweet and sugary. Aftertaste: caramel, chocolate, dried fruits, little bitter, some alcohol, sugary, vanilla again. Wow, really pleasantly surprised by this one!
Bottle. Aroma very spicy, herbal, dry. In the flavor more fruits become apparent (banana, apple), as well as sweet malt, rounding out the very nice spicing. Very tasty.

New Beer Distributors, NY 11.2oz ($3): Amber brown body with a pretty nice looking head. Delightful fruity aroma, with raspberry, a bunch of malts, and the yeast. Taste really brings out the sour raspberry elements of this beer. Somewhat sweet as well. Nice and tart. Carbonated mouthfeel is amenable to my tastes. Not overly heavy-bodied. Was a very pleasant surprise as a random buy. High alcohol covered well. I think if anything, this beer is under-rated on this site. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2012
33cl from Dranken Geers. BB 12/2013.
Brune foncée, col gazeux disparaissant vite laissant un léger doré sur le verre.
Arôme malt, levure avec des épices me rappelant le pain d’épice. D’ailleurs ce profile est déjà à noter sur d’autres bières et doit surement venir de la levure. Profile est agréable entre malt et épice rappelant le clou de girofle et mélasse sur un fini léger choco et une pointe de fruit aigre. Plovmand (8616) - Grindsted, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours Dark reddish brown with a bubbly beige head. The aroma is dark berries, dark fruit and light chocolate. The flavour is heavy Dark fruity with notes of berries, light acid, light chocolate and ends up highly fruity. Great!

Bottle. Pours a deep, cloudy brown with a small, foamy tan head. Aroma of lots of spices (pepper, clove, and lots of others I can’t recognize), water chestnut. Flavor is equally spicy upfront with a nice malty backbone. Pleasant and easy to drink. Another nice BSA from La Botteresse.
