GTAEgeek (2425) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2013
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Dark, murky brown with a medium, creamy, light tan head. The head sticks around for a long time, and the lacing is pristine. Heavy notes of chocolate, oak, light cinnamon, and some distinct notes of bourbon. Cloyingly sweet flavor, with some light spiciness, and a pleasant warming and sweet aftertaste. Heavy body, smooth and creamy. Overall, this is a stellar beer. Highly recommended!

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: clear chestnut brown with big, creamy white head. Aroma: caramel, dried apricot and fruits, banana, sweet spice. Taste: pretty high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of dark malts, unripe banana, bread, caramel, some alcohol and a trace of kahlua. Pretty boozy. Palate: medium bodied, slightly sticky texture and lively carbonation.

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.

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.

SylvainCFC (350) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2017
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.

3.4
stchloe (1112) - 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

4.4
Paddycairns (76) - - AUG 5, 2017
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
