czar (8814) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2017 on tap at le saint-bock, mtl. unclear medium dark brown pour with a small reviving light beige cap offering some retention and lacing. fruity peppery caramel, some complexity and without being overwhelming though; sweetish nuts, grassy and herbal noble-like hops; sweet coffee, slightly earthy grinds, fruity yet not clean belgian yeastiness - some soap and metal traces. moderate carbonation - could be brighter; light to medium body - oily; semi-sweet grassy-earthy finish. o-k bruin belgian - a lot less refined than its blond brother.

tricksta_p (4213) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is brown malt, caramel, candy sugar, raisins. Flavour is sugary sweet with and light bitter. Body is just about medium, slightly thinnish for the style, with lively carbonation. Bit too much like sugary caramel water to be enjoyable.

Zilverenmaan (129) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2016
Taste starts of with caramel malts but then mostly candi sugar. Mouthfeel a little oily but over-carbonated for my taste. Looks fine and has a nice aroma. Not a bad brew but its rather boring and by no means anything special.

HopsTamer18 (2) - London, Wiltshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016 does not count
The smell is odd, a bit like asparagus. But its a delicious dark ale with a sweetness, nuttiness but also a nice bitterness. Well worth trying though maybe not the first of the night.
