Espectacular cerveza de la que te tiras todo el rato diciendo, q buena, q buena. Presencia espectacular, negro amarronado con espuma blanca q te deja espuma oscura en su tramo final. Toques dulces de chocolate y ligeros toques a cafe y canela. En boca se queda el sabor durante muchas, muchas horas...estoy deseando tomar otra ya!!!

Echon (445) - rhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2017
Dark mahogany. Dried fruit, kandis and a light metallic note in the aroma. Otherwise quite strong, with kandis, spice, pungent phenols, lots of yeast and some alcohol. Relatively dry taste that finishes moderately bitter and boozy. Medium body, and a prickly carbonation. Overall, a decent belgian strong ale. Great aroma, beautiful colour and nice yeasty flavour, but this beer is too dry and pungent. There is nowhere for the 9% abv to hide, and the water seems rather hard.

AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Poured a very large amount of foamy head, very bubbly. Has a dark amber/coppery appearance. Dirty lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, raisins and spices. Flavours are mostly nutty and toasty roasted malts with notes of chocolate. Strongly spiced with a bit of coffee and raisins as well as hints of grapes. Stronger beer at 9%abv and this one actually shows it, mainly in the finish and somewhat in the aftertaste. Has a slick and drying mouthfeel and gives a warming, tingling sensation. Not bad, alcohol is quite apparent.

Livendadream (227) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Btl pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights, big, off white head that hangs around for some time leaving lots of lace on glass. Aromas of chocolate cake, brown sugar, dates, molasses and yeast. Flavors of malt,toffee, prunes, cola and alcohol. Full body, perfect carbonation, soft yet a mellow tannic mouthfeel and a spicy alcohol warmth finish. I really enjoy this beer. It has very interesting flavors and warms you up on a cold winter night! Kinda of reminds me of the winter holidays. Excellent!

alteregoo (1193) - POLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Piana niewielka, szybko redukuje się do obrączki. Barwa miedziana, opalizująca. W aromacie cukier kandyzowany, rodzynki, suszone morele, mid i stary chmiel. Smak słodki, tu pierwsze skrzypce grają kandyzowane owoce, daktyle, figi, ciemny mid i przypalany karmel. W posmaku nalewka ziołowa i nieduża, pikantna goryczka. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, drobne, alkohol rozgrzewający, likierowy, w odbiorze pełne, lekko oleiste.
Fajne ciemne, mocne piwo belgijskie, choć aromat nieco zaburza kwas izowalerianowy.
