seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Tasted from 12oz bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a beautiful, slightly hazy, dark reddish-brown with huge, creamy, persistent beige foam with excellent Belgian lace. The perfect beer appearance. Aromas and flavors true-to-style for Belgian Strong Ale. Reminiscent of a Trappist Quad, but spicier. Rich, caramelly malt-sweetness, massive yeast esters/phenols (probably fermented at a high temperature), perfumey Saaz hops, hints of chocolate, tart fruits, burnt toast, nutmeg, black pepper, anise, smooth alcohol. Very tasty, clearly well-made but I actually prefer less aggressively spiced Belgian ales.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Волшебный Бельгийский Эль. С виду имеет темно карамельный цвет. Кремовая пена не спадает даже после 15 минут. Вкус безумно мягкий, карамельно фруктовый с привкусом шоколада. Алкоголь практически не чувствуется.

IOzh (199) - Kyiv, UKRAINE - SEP 15, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours dark amber with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruits, caramel. Medium body, with average carbonation. Taste is mostly sweet but well balanced with a hint of alcohol warmth. Very nice.

Tap @ The Sister Brussels Cafe: Mild box aroma with a tan head. Smooth and full of carbonation. Flavors of dates and figs. Alcohol hidden well. Quite good overall.

23/08/2017 - tasting glass from 33cl bottle @ the brewery. Brown colour with tanned head. Nose is dark malts, some caramel, fruits, some chocolate. Taste is starts typical with dark & caramel malts, than fruity and chocolate touch, Not too sweet at all, bit dry ending leaving a bit of all its tastes.

Robe brune très foncée, reflets roux. Mousse bien calibrée, beige, aérée, bonne tenue. Nez très doux, vanille, fruits mûrs, alcool. Bouche classique pour une brune forte, structurée autour d’une belle douceur maltée, avec des notes fruitées (prunes, fruits mûrs, fruits secs, banane léger), vanille, sucre candi. Texture moyenne (assez légère pour le style), carbonatation moyenne. Brune forte (quad) classiquement douce et fruitée. Très chaude. ABV très haut, mais bien intégré gustativement.

stchloe (1104) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Rich and heavy with strong earth and dark malt notes, very large body and abv helps add some countering notes

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Earthy and fruity aroma, very dark and bold. Tasks good and roasty as well as hints of caramel and very boozy

Butelka z data : 15 11 2018 (#1414)
AROMAT : Srednio intensywny. Typowy drozdzowo-przyprawowy zapach (biala porzeczka, gruszka w zalewie, suszone morele).
SMAK : Pólwytrawne. Slodowe. Wysokie nasycenie. Dobrze wkomponowany alkohol, to zdecydowanie na plus. Odczucie w ustach: wodniste. Goryczka srednia, sciagajaca.
WYGLAD : Barwa miedziana, zamglone. Piana obfita, trwala, oblepiajaca szklo.
OGÓLNIE : Ciekawy aromat. W smaku ma niewiele do zaoferowania. Bardzo efektownie prezentuje sie w kieliszku - efektowna czapa piany.

Draft taproom. Pours reddish Amber with a lacing beige head. Aroma of sweet caramels, butterscotch, dark fruit. Flavor is boozy dark fruit including cherry and fig, caramel. Tasty.
