Birra dal colore marrone scuro. Schiuma beige, fine e persistente. Allolfatto sentori di caff tostato, caramello, e malto. Al palato corposa con note di frutta secca, caramello e malto tostato, Nel finale lievemente amara. Birra da conversazione ma anche ottima con piatti succulenti, brasati, risotto allossobuco.

cattaneopapa (378) - 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.
