fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, - DEC 15, 2012
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. "

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%.

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 (6330) - 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.

Ysok02 (1714) - 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 (1123) - ITALY - JAN 25, 2017
Una buona strong Ale dal colore ambra scuro quasi marrone, buona Carbonazione, dolce con note di frutta secca, dark fruits.

4.1
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....

3.2
drmet (997) - GERMANY - JAN 3, 2017
L: -pours a hazy ruby with a medium,foamy,sand-coloured head -high carbonation visible S: -washing powder,cherries,raspberries,astringent T: -follo the nose with slight caramel,slight bread and a syrupy sweetness F: -medium carbonation -medium body O: Fairly fruity and soapy Belgian Brown Ale. Not for me.
