mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap, from old notes. Almost opaque brown in color with thick tan foam. Very sweet malty aroma, lots of yeasty notes. Flavor is all about the malt, bit of a yeast twang in the finish, very thick mouthfeel, almost like jello.

PanMarek (336) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Sweet dried fruit and comparatively mild caramel malt in the nose. Dark red pour with thick white foam. The caramel malt dominate the taste but the finish is somewhat dry with a strong alcohol aspect. It is a little more mild than most Belgian ales.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - OCT 17, 2006
Sweet, Perfumey and slightly spicey. Lots of sediment in the bottle so pour carefully. Prickly carbonation with a dried fruit aftertaste. Slightly watered down and lacking in body. Nice bottle and presentation but dont judge this book by its cover its an average Ale.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours clear amber with a medium tan head. The aroma is complex - spicy belgian yeast, rich malt, deep earthy notes, toast. The taste is also complex, with toasty malt, sweetness, alcohol and whiskey. Full bodied but not cloying.

330ml bottle: BBD 03.19.09. Poured a dark red/amber with a small off-white/beige head. Aroma: lots of spice & caramel, fresh fruits, malt, booze. Taste: caramel, malt, booze, mild water & spice. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Overall: good, but not that great... I want to try a fresh bottle to see if this one was just past its prime.

Comprata alla Basko(cosa che non ha mancato di stupirmi) in bottiglia da 33 cl. Versa di colore arancione ramato, un p opacp con una schiuma sottile bianca. Aroma di lievito e un p di caramello. Il gusto altrettanto caramella e di lievito. Finale lungo,fruttato e maltato con tratti agrumati.Davvero notevole.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
0.33l bottle from LCBO. Served in a tulip. Pours a transparent dark brown, with a thin off-white head, tons of carbonation. Aroma: Strong notes of caramel, malt, nuts. Faint hints of banana, vanilla. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, slightly fizzy, easy finish. Taste: Fairly sweet, slight bitterness in the finish. Very malty. Nice.

tbonde (331) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2015
33cl [email protected] hotel bar in Kwak [email protected] 10 degrees C. Pours almost orange with off white head in the peculiar glass, which did actually do a kwak sound at the appropriate moment. Aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruit. Taste is predominantly malty and sweet, with caramel and spice kept in check by fresher, fruitier notes. Aftertaste full, malty and hoppy, signalling that this is not just a gimmick beer but a genuinly good and serious Belgian brew.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2011
Hazy amber wth a off-white head. Candy sugar, caramel and some light acidity in the nose. More of the same in the taste. It dont really take off and feels too sweet for me.
