3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Exceptionally well crafted beer that goes down rather too easily. Seems to develop well as it warms slightly, though not as spicy as I would have imagined. I don’t get any coriander on the nose, but perhaps not a young enough bottle.
Overall exceptionally good, if still a little disappointing. Whilst I would have this again there are others in the style I would make a bee line for first.
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovaj 'crni patuljak' su zbog svoje alkoholne jačine stavili u Belgian Strongove, ali to je pravi Dubbel i to 'odličan' Dubbel ! Ugodan slatkast miris , na voćni šećer i suho voće. Okus dosta bogat slatkast, karamela i opet suho voće. Fino pitko pivo ! ..spada među moje draže Belgijance :) Mishnok (443) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2018
Ruby, dark brown from bottle. A light bit of sweet malts and a touch of cardamom. Good Belgian Strong Ale. Would recommend

Very enjoyable beer. Cloudy brown in colour. Lively carbonation. Toffee/treacle notes in taste. DijkBier (657) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2018
Drank this already years ago, but never rated it. Bottle pours clear ruby dark brown, with big beige head that falls down quickly. Aroma is mostly dark malts, not so much more... Taste is rather sweet, brown sugar, caramel, and softly bitter; no development towards aftertaste. OK carbo. That's the thing with Achouffe beers: they're nice and easy, but lack special character.

Appearance: Pours unclear dark brown with a off-white head, with lacing.
Aroma: Caramel, malt, yeast and fruit, with hints of hops.
Taste: Malt, caramel and fruit, with yeast and spice notes. No enough hops to compensate the sweetness. Sweet alcoholic warm finish, along with faint bitter notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, soft carbonated.

Very tasty bear with a slight chilli spice, but still very round and pleasent taste

Bière brune avec quasi aucune mousse. Légère amertume et arômes bien développés. Manque légèrement de caractère. AleRider78 (1508) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Pours a huge frothy beige head that dissipates a fairly average size foamy head. Has a dark amber brownish appearance. Lots of dirty lacing remains. Aromas of toasted and bready malts, as well as subtle yeasty notes. Flavours are mostly on the sweet side, lots of resin notes and some nutty and toasty notes. Smooth and slick mouthfeel, goes down very nicely. Subtle bitterness in the finish. Pretty good. Spab (4236) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2017
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky mahogany colour with moderate-sized light tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sweet tree fruit, dark fruit, brown sugar and caramel. Flavour has raisin, caramelized banana, brown sugar, caramel and leather. Fine carbonation. Nice.
