KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium brown with a large fizzy light brown head that rapidly dissipated and had poor lacing. The aroma was heavy with caramel malts and a sweet doughy yeast with a hint of dried fruit, some spices and a strong wine scent. It tasted moderately sweet with a strong dried fruit note at first and finished ever so lightly sour-sweet with a nice caramel flavor and a mild alcohol tinge at the end with the flavor lasting and average duration. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and a little syrupy in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing change to the typical Belgian Strong Ale.

Echon (477) - 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 (956) - 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.
