detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
750ml bottle. Treacle coloured body, honey and malt combined with alcohol in the nose. Smooth palate, flavours of demeiera sugar with rum, honey, malt and currents. Long sweet and alcohol finish. Loads better than I expected, the gimmicky glass puts me off ordering in bars.

got it at a bar in brugge mostly because of curiosity - the glass is the coolest thing about this. the whole time i thought i was drinking an amber ale and not a belgian strong, it was good though, perhaps a little too sweet, but a nice change of pace from other belgian beers

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle. High creamy good looking lasting off-white head. Beautiful clear red brown body. Sweet barley malt aroma. Simple but good. Roasted malt flavor with caramel and hops. Sweet and dry is the overall impression. Low carbonation. Long and sweet aftertaste.

brianbuntz (49) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Reddish amber. The malts really come through in the aroma and flagor. Smells like sandalwood and fir. Flavors of lemon, grapefruit, molasses, and pears.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 Bottled 33cl. It pours a amber beer with a tanned head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, anise, apples and pears. Lots of raisins; Metallic and oily. Sweet flavor with notes of fruits (raisins, apples and pears), caramel and wood. A rather smooth belgian strong ale. Dominating malty and fruity flavors, lots of apples. Some almond and marzipan notes. There is an unenjoyable metallic touch to this beer. A sweet and herbal alcoholic finish with hints of anise. Dissappointing - Not worth purchasing again. I like the Kwak glasses though. Additional comment: Mediocre. Overrated in my opinion.
