Barwa brązowa ze średnią pianą. Aromat chyba karmelu, alkoholu. Smak ni to słodki ni gorzki. Sam nie wiem.

hauxe (551) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2017
Pours amber from the bottle. The fizzy tan head soon fades. Aroma is cherry, a bit of dough, some spice. Taste is overall sweet with a rich variety of flavor: cherry, caramel, bubblegum, rum. Near the finish a light sourness arises, and an alcoholic warmth. Body is a bit light. Overall still good but not a strong finisher.

CyborgX (90) - THAILAND - JAN 24, 2017
Tap - Aroma is sweet malts and alcohol. Taste is initially sweet, and stays there, in combination with some malty alcohol, settling on the palette as sweet but just within the bounds of deinkable without reaching sickly sweet. Balanced towards sweetness, this strong ale is a classic Belgian beer shunning the hoppy bitterness of lesser brews ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared 33cl bottle. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Aroma and taste of malt, brown sugar, caramel, spice and alcohol. Not bad, but there are plenty of better Belgian strong ales out there.

pictoman (987) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2017
Poured from 33cl bottle [bb 28/05/2017] into Kwak glass. Orangey brown with full off-white head. Caramel and Belgian yeast with light spices and dark fruits. Presentation is over the top (with the glass), but never-the-less the beer itself is quite good.
