Pours an amber-brown with a big, rich, long-lasting light khaki head. Brown sugar and custard nose. Metallic flavor is, unfortunately prominent. Brown sugar, custard, and ripe red fruit flavor. Full, soft mouthfeel with a bit of alcohol heat. Zuko (16) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Pours a dark hazy brown with a mild off white head. One of my favorites, but not quite as great as I remembered. Leads with a strong caramel malt, but finishes a little too sweet. Carbonation is just right. You can taste the high abv, not as bad as it could be though. Overall great beer mariuspoenari (2618) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2016

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber, thin off white head. Aroma of raisin, herbs, fruit, figs. Taste was sweeter, some alcohol, slight spicy/pepper finish. Tjeerd (514) - GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016
Dark and strong beer but not with the playfullness and fruity complexity of the belgian abbeys. Full taste but too much abv-domination. Mouthfeel and aftertaste reasonably good but not great. geologyguy (1583) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2016
smell is complex, deep and tasty but have to wait for it to sit a while to gain enough to smell....not very aromatic otherwise...taste is dark fruits and light banana... heavy medium sweetness, finishes drier and more straightforward toasty malt...lightly hot alcohol, touch of oak taste in there too...smooth and good complexity trapped (3077) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle. Clear dark amber with small creamy beige head, caramel aroma, slightly sweet caramel taste, low carbonation, thin body, long bitter caramel finish. A bit like an ESB, caramel/malt dominated. teddybeer (3735) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2016
Brown color with an off-white head with good retention. Aroma has notes of toasted and sweet malts, some dry fruits. Flavor is slightly sweet, good presence of alcohol, spicy and some yeast with caramelish notes. Mild alcoholic final with smooth aftertaste.
