Bottle 33cl bought at Het Confituurpotje in Tervuren.
Pours hazy amber/brown with a big dark white head. Nose: sugar, malt, almonds. Taste: stronger carbonation. Some earthy flavours, little bit sweet and dusty. Some notes of bread, roasted malts, chocolate. Low in bitterness. Overall in the end a metallic feeling. Benzai (15605) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Bottle @ home. Clear amber to almost purple color, huge foamy beige head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, light caramel, some sweetness which reminds me of brown candy sugar. Taste malts, again some caramel and brown candy sugar, light malt bitterness in the finish. Decent to medium body and medium carbonation. Woc (124) - BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2015
Nope, doesn´t work for me. Appearance is nice, very lovely head, nice dark brown color. But aroma is bitter chocolate and taste the same. Somehow I just find it unpleasant. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottled. Hazy ambery brown colour with a big fluffy off-white head. Aroma is some ryebread, mild earth, some yeast as well as some floral notes. Flavour is quite similar, ending up somewhere between sweet and quite earhty/grainy with some rye, herbal and yeasty notes. Quite OK Dubbel, which hid the alcohol well.

Organic brown ale, the follow-up to the blonde version, with cane sugar. Dryish, bready character, dried fruits, caramelly malts; apparently made for Stepaja, the company which used to promote the used of the Stevia plant as a replacement to sugar. tderoeck (9659) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2013

Note: guess what beer I found one day later when going through all the bottles I had bought at the Zytholoog in Adegem a few weeks ago? Yup.
Clear muddy brown beer, creamy irregular beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: overripe banana, caramel, quite a lot of chocolate, dried fruits, a bit soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, lots of chocolate, some caramel, bit sour, overripe banana. Aftertaste: little bitter, metallic touch, mainly chocolate.
Brune ambrée, effervescence faible, col disparaît trop rapidement. Malts caramel à peine torréfiés, un peu aqueuse, un rien épicée. Quel ennui! Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2012
Ein dunkelbraunes, leicht trübes Bier mit Blockmalzaroma, das reinste Malzbonbon. Der Abgang könnte ne Spur Hopfen vertragen, ansonsten recht gefällig. Wim (3980) - Weelde, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2011
brown coloured body with a off white head a spicy hoppy malty aroma a spicy malty sweet fruity taste with a sweet little bitter finish
