Too sweet. Much prefer a tripel. The beer is. Not bad, but the sugar is just too much. IrishBoy (4259) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 4, 2017

Aroma: Dark fruits, prunes, rum soaked raisins, dark breads
Appearance: Dark brown / black with thick chocolate-y head
Taste: Prunes, herbal liqueur, cough syrup, bitter finish
Palate: Creamy, sticky, cough syrupy
Overall: I was expecting a lot more from this one (coming in at 99 pts). Taste is much too herbal liqueur, sticky sweet cough medicine in the end.
75 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego. Aroma has sweet raisins and licorice. Also sweet malt. Flavour has lots of sweet licorice, some raisins and mild coffee notes. Oaty and a bit foamy palate. Becomes sweet and sticky after some sips. One of the best Belgian style ales outside Belgium. Gotta love the good licorice here.
