Aroma de malte e caramelo, sabor levemente adocicado e coloração vermelha super escura. É uma cerveja com perfume, com excelente formação de espumas, longa e duradoura. 8.1% de álcool, com leve amargor, bem balanceada. Seguirei as mesmas palavras do meu pai: "A melhor bock que já tomei. "

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.

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.

Una buona strong Ale dal colore ambra scuro quasi marrone, buona Carbonazione, dolce con note di frutta secca, dark fruits.

guitambascia (6) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 17, 2017 does not count
Uma boa cerveja, mas leve que as convencionais Dark Strong Ale, confesso que me pareceu mais com uma Dubbel, mas o sabor intenso de tâmara faz prevalecer o estilo mais complexo das cervejas belgas de alta fermentação. Boa cerveja para quem está iniciando o mundo das cervejas especiais já num nível mais avançado....

I take this beer keg format. Although I prefer the format bottle. A good beer, but without the quality of the great Belgian beers of this style

4.2
Nurmis (629) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
75cl bottle. Pours brown with big tanned persistent head. Plum and other dark fruits, yeast. Really soft mouthfeel, cannot taste alcohol. More sweet than bitter. Really good.

3.5
Gehbe (442) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 26, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Pours a clear ruby brown with a huge light tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of candy, caramel, molasses sugar, spice, citrus. Tastes medium sweet with medium/light carbonation sourness and a drop of crispy bitterness on finish. High carbonation, medium body, very thin for the amount of ABV, assertive alcoholic finish, a little sticky. Not bad but rather one-dimensional, and I’m not fond of the palate.
