GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 24, 2011
Cloudy rust colour with a reasonable sized head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is quite sweet and fruity - roses, toffee, plums. Has a reasonable body, sweet but not sickly. Flavours are brown sugar, prunes, raisins, malt and grapes. Very enjoyable.

patricks110 (2794) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2017
Rather boozy tasting but a decent Dubbel style beer overall. Pours a light burgundian amber with a fizzy beige head. The nose is malt forward with molasses and raisin notes, smells rather caramelized and has light spicy and dried fruit notes. Light bitterness on the finish but rather astringent with a light metallic note, warm booziness. A good beer but rather forgettable.

330 ml bottle. Amber brown with a medium beige head. The flavour is sweet and herbal with a hint of iron as well. On the sweet side, but fairly balanced by the alcohol.

23/08/2017 - 33cl bottle @ B&B Le Vieux Marronnier Foy-Notre-Dame. Brown to amber colour, big creamy tanned head. Nose is dark malts, caramel, spices. Taste is dark malts, caramel, some fruits, spices, some alcohol. Very balanced and decent, not outspoken like the saison.

Bottle - reddish brown with small off white head. Fruity aroma, fairly sweet. Bit of a ting on tongue and in mouth. Not as good tasting as blonde - bit too sweet, high alcohol @ 8.1%.

vsyrbu (141) - MOLDOVA - JUL 10, 2017
Aroma - not the richest seemed, but is interesting - prunes with burnt sugar, when heated appears the liquorice . In the taste a little sharply you feel alcohol, a little leavened some spices. The aftertaste captures the same liquorice.

reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2017
330ml bottle pours an amber brown colour with a massive white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some caramel and coriander. Taste is a dark fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a spicy hop bitterness finishing with a dry yeasty finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a pleasant, easy drinking brew that hides the alcohol well and is balanced and tasty. Recommended.

Mister_Li (1634) - GERMANY - MAY 19, 2017
Klares rotbraun mit reichlich Schaum. Malzig, süßlich, etwas Karamell, brauner Zucker, leicht fruchtig, Rosinen.

phfyysik (1490) - Tartu, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2017
Pours mahogany brown with high beige head. Aroma is caramel, some sourness, leather, spices, gingerbread, creamy, some milk, cinnamon, toffee. Taste is caramel, creamy, oily, some spices, toffee, milk chocolate, cinnamon, coriander, whipped cream. Very good beer!

Ysok02 (1913) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2017
Belle robe brune aux reflets ambrés. Nez sur des notes de malt, de chocolat, d’épices, belle complexité. Bouche à l’attaque sur l’alcool de café, de la tension, bulle tendue, finale onctueuse. Une bière forte assez équilibrée.

lello4ever (1245) - ITALY - JAN 25, 2017
Una buona strong Ale dal colore ambra scuro quasi marrone, buona Carbonazione, dolce con note di frutta secca, dark fruits.
