cattaneopapa (365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2017
330 bottle purchased online. 11,5% alc/vol. Pours a clear deep ruby brown colou with a small head that reduces into a small ring in less than a minute. Aroma is yeasty with notes of prunes, raisins, and licorice. After a disappointing aroma and appearance the taste blew me away. Incredibly complex taste with lots of dark fruits, plums, figs, sour cherries and some caramel that leads to a well balanced hoppy finish. The high alcohol content is well concealed. Full bodied with High carbonation. One of the best tasting Belgian Strong Ales Ive ever had.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 Colore bruno con luminescenze ocra. Aromi di caramello scuro, crosta di panettone quindi note di agrumi canditi, spezie e frutta disidratata (pugne ed uvetta). Sensazioni che si ripropongono in bocca arricchite da una corporatura cremosa e dolce.

DijkBier (276) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle in caf in Gent. Dark ruby-brown with small beige head. Full aroma of roasted malts, choco, red fruits. Taste is accordingly but lighter, more than medium sweet, and not feeling the heavy 12 ABV. Nice beer though.
