Aroma of classic Belgian ale, yeasty, brown sugar, dried fruit, plums, fig, chocolate, some roastiness. If i tried it blind, i would be sure it's some dubbel or something similar. Cloudy dark brown to black color, minimal tan head. Sweet, sugary, plums, milk chocolate taste. Medium body, flat carbonation, creamy. //bottle thanks to Kajser kajser27 (1959) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 8, 2017

Bottle at Erzbierschof MC, vintage 2014. Pours dark brown with a soft beige head. Aroma is mocca, chocolate, coffee. Body is medium, lots of chocolate, some coffee, still a lot of roast and sweetness, some booze, but in good harmony. Very good! Sammy (12610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2017
