Bottle. This beer kind of reminds me of Westvleteren 12., just not as complex. It has kind of the same palate and body. Smooth and sweet. Sweet milk chocolate, hops, spices and licorice. finol (3524) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2009
Pours brown with a big head.
Lots of hops, malts and licorice thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2009
This corked and caged bottled brew marked 2/08 lot 15 041 0830071 from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of cascading beautiful foamy light brown colored very fine bubbles that were mostly lasting. Once it settled down, a very hazy body with a large amount of floating particulate in a very dark brown colored body was observed. There was a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was vinous with deep brown malty notes. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the vinous start and at the finish with a stronger vinous note in the aftertaste. The deep dark malt flavor was laced with alcohol. A decent one that I would consider buying again. HighWine (991) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown with thick, creamy, off-whie head that stays around for a long time. Nose is more like a wine, brandy, or Armagnac. Surprising. I was expecting the nose to be sugar malt, but not at all. The taste is fruity and sweet...figs, dates, and brown sugar but not sickly. Slightly metallic taste. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Dark brown with a large beige head. Aroma is of brown sugar, yeast, bread, fig and raisin. Taste is of booze, raisin, brown sugar, caramel, and candy sugar.

330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours dark reddish brown with several inches of off-white head that settles down to about a half inch. Smells of cocoa and pit fruit. Tastes of raisins and chocolate with a good deal of sweetness behind it. Not sticky or cloying though and manages to finish nice and dry. Very smooth and the 12% abv is wholly unnoticed. This stuff is dangerous. ghawener (1615) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - AUG 1, 2009
Bottle: Incredibly easy to drink, be CAREFUL. Sweet, red fruit, bready no presence of alcohol at all! Again be CAREFUL. Food Pairing: bread pudding (and get a taxi!) dutch23mp (320) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2009
dark with a white lacing the high ABV is well hidden as most of these strong Belgium ales are. the Aroma reminds me of flowers and this is a nice hardy beer 750 ML bottle nickd717 (4996) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Bottle at Poechenellekelder in Brussels. Dark brown in color with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty with dark fruit, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, fig/raisin, chocolate, candi sugar, and spices. Full and fairly creamy on the palate. Good stuff. mike_77 (7234) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2009
Very lively out of the bottle. Almost black in colour. Powerful aroma with malts and lots of alcohol. The alcohol in the flavour is very much a warm and soft sensastion and works well against the overall maltiness of the beer. The thick texture adds richness.
