UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Etiquetage assez limite pour une bire qui se veut du haut de gamme. Prsentation visuelle correcte: couleur sombre, mousse beige paisse, Armes intressants de raisins mrs, avec une pointe de noix, et du caf moka. Mais le problme rel est dans le got, trop sur lamertume pour ce genre de bire, et qui ne passe jamais lquilibre. Grand dfaut quand on veut beaucoup de points La longueur fait passer une pointe de genivre et de citron. Cest dire si on va loin dans lamertume pour une bire fonce... Et lalcool, contrairement lide admise, narrange rien. Il rchauffe lambiance, certes, mais ne sucre pas. La levure est faible pour ce niveau de brassage, quoique douce. En finale, on reste donc un peu interrogateur: certes on a vu passer du 22 plato, mais on nest jamais parvenu un stade dadmiration pour ce brassin. Et pourtant, il avait toutes les possibilits de le faire... ________________________________________ an aprs, cest chose faite... Longueur quasiment pas amre, bien pleine et entire, avec de la finesse et de la profondeur. Bire trs intressante.

Bottle 330ml at Plonk, Canberra. Masterpiece. Aromas of caramel, nuts, biscuit, and a hint of butter; alcohol is well hidden. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is sticky, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Delicious. I love the fruit and sweetness on the nose. Rich and complex in character. Caramel toasted notes.

Had this at the beer dinner at Steak 954. It was an impeccable beer. Malty with a hint of hops. Right down my flavor lane.

Birra molto saporita, tendente decisamente al dolce. Sentori caramellati, maltati e speziati molto forti. Nel retrogusto si percepisce un leggero luppolato. Corpo decisamente strutturato.

The first thing that struck me with this surprise purchase is how incredibly smooth it is -- in what other Belgian do you find 12 ABV cloaked this elegantly? Dark, secretive, mesmerizingly fragrant and moreish: A perennial favorite.

yespr (41884) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2008 25 cL bottle. Pours deep brown/black with light brown head. Aroma is fruity (plum and raisins), hops, coffee and malt. Taste has the same in a wineous blend - and what a perfect blend! Fruit, coffee and wineous are the keynotes that I would put to this beer. I have a new favourite!

Beachmaster (475) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Bomber into a tulip. Pours a deep brown, with hints of ruby. Moderate tan head which fades into a disk. Nose is dark roast malt, spice, and a touch of hops. Taste is very smooth-dark roast malt, cocoa, caramel, and spice. Very well-balanced, highly carbonated. Not too sweet, and not bitter on the finish. Very well-balanced. Outstanding.

Pours dark brown with big, longlasting, tan head. Aroma: caramel, coffee, honey, raisins and red fruits. Taste: high sweetness with low bitterness. Finish is a little dry with notes of chocolate, coffee, coriander and red fruits. Very boozy. Texture is oily. Carbonation is very lively. Lacing is good. Just like it’s little brother, a very good beer.
