richlamb (18) - - OCT 5, 2013
Pleasant dark/reddish colour with a rich and somewhat fruity aroma. The flavour follows suit, with intense malt and some decent complexity - some dark fruit character. Mild bitterness for a very malt-focussed beer. Very enjoyable even in warm weather

Muy buena. Un poco ms consistente que otras cervezas de este estilo. Se bebe bien. Cuerpo medio. El sabor corto es sabroso y el largo es tostado.

snowtiger (107) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2017
At Brassarie lAvenue in Brussels. Clear, deep orange to light brown color. Aroma is of figs and nutmeg spice. Taste is spice up front, followed by rich fig and plum notes, then finishes surprisingly dry. Glad I found this one.

Una cerveza muy rica y sabrosa. Mejor de barril que en botella. No se debe tomar a una temperatura muy elevada

Demens (402) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 26, 2017
0,33l bottle. Clear light brown colour with quickly shrinking but lasting small off-white head. Aroma: Candy sugar, leather, matured cheese. Taste: Sweet malty and fruity start with a pleasent bitter mouthfeel. (Nutmeg) Has a light liquorish tone and a warming alcohol feel. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Long bitter and slightly sweet, softly acidic finish.

rodsquad (174) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle as gift. Aromas of spicy yeast, slight lavender sherbet and red grape juice. Pours clear amber brown with a fluffy beige head. Flavours have a dry yeasty front, a sweet caramel malt middle and a gentle, fresh hop finish. It has a soft but dry palate with moderately sharp sparkle. It has plenty spicy Belgian front but smoothed and freshened with floral and fruity tones. Robust and enjoyable.

Inoven (566) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2017
Flesje gekregen van TomHendriksen. Amberkleurig helder bier met stevig schuim. Aroma en smaak is iets te kruidig.

ManVsBeer (9709) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. Darker amber coloured with a thin head. Smooth tasting, smooth textured pale malts with a stated enough berry-fruit sweetness to it. This is slightly sugary in its nose

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - MAR 7, 2017
Birra dal colore ambrato. Schiuma bianco sporco, fine e persistente. Allolfatto sentori di malto tostato tostate, marmellata di agrumi, e caff tostato. Al palato corposa, con note dolci di malto e frutta candita. Nel finale lamaro quasi insistente. E abbastanza alcolica ma va gi molto facilmente. Una buona birra abbinabile con formaggi ma anche con brasati fa la sua bella figura.
