I wanted this to be so much more than it is, the carbonation surprises and hide the front taste of the malt, and does not hide the alcohol bitters. But this is a strong beer that is drinkable and will get you into trouble, there is no complex thinking or stretching for taste descriptions, they are pretty low key and just present. In a class of it’s peers this would be a "achieved" and not a Merit or Excellence.

Normal BSA fare, caramel, raisins, candy, dough... Unfortunately a bit on the diabetic side, starting to enjoy that less... what are you hiding? Good carbo and pretty dark amber hue

colui72 (989) - HONG KONG - JUN 9, 2017
Pours brown, fizzy, with a medium tan head, some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel, herbs, dough. Tastes is on the sweet malts side, with caramel, candy and some dark fruits. Full body, creamy, lively carbonation and a bit astringent. Long caramel after taste. Regular dark Belgian, not overly sweet and boozy, tasty.

Dark red, brown. Aroma caramel, slightly yeasty. High carbonation. Some sweetness and a soft maltiness. Well balanced. Very nice amber/double for someone who typically prefers a triple. One of the best dark beers there is, if you ask me.

Bijl (601) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2017
Amber, crèmekleurige volle schuimkraag, lichte waas, veel koolzuur. Aroma: Moutig, brood/biscuit, karamel, rozijnen, donker fruit en spicy hops. Smaak: Smaak komt behoorlijk overeen met het aroma. Daarnaast een flinke bitter met een aardse/mossige/ florale hint met wat kruidigheid uit de hop. Geroosterde mout, karamel en zoetig....kandij. Moutigheid en granig zit op de voorgrond met een hint van Belgische gist.....fruitige esters. Alcohol is niet merkbaar. Medium body, prikkelig koolzuur, droog bittere afdronk.

On draft at Three Kings. Very faint bread-like and date aroma, pours opaque deep brown with minimal but frothy head and mild to moderate carbonation which makes it easy on the palate. Taste is initially of dates and prunes, finishes slightly alcoholic, yeasty and oaky. Not as sweet as a dubbel or quad (like I initially expected), and far more complex. This reminds me if a mashup between a brown ale, dubbel, and Saison. Interesting for the palate and flavorful.

JorgeLee (2096) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
75cl bottle, Bignens Vins Balexert, shared with Thiru. Lovely bright reddish brown colour, thick slightly off white foam. Very flavoursome, sweet thick fruity malt, some spice, estery. Very high carbonation, fine bubbles. Bitter to balance but no more. All pretty damn tasty.

gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2017
From old tasting notes. Cloudy amber, copper color. Small bubbly beige head. Earthy malt nose with a yeasty jolt. Tangy, toasted malt flavor has an intense fruity character. Complex and flavorful.
