hangunder (305) - Ontario, - JAN 29, 2013
Bready/yeasty, sweet and a rich malt in the aroma. Characteristic belgian yeast. A nice looking beer, mahogany color with long lasting white head. Caramel, malt, belgian yeast and a mild hoppiness, with abrupt alcohol aftertaste. Pretty clean tasting. Above average carbonation. Medium bodied.

La primera vez que vi esta cerveza me impact mucho (en el Mosquito Tapas), claro por su vaso, me transport a mis aos de colegio cuando estudiaba qumica (lastimosamente en este local ya no se sirve en este mtico vaso). Luego estuvo su sabor (un poco densa y maltosa y al comienzo es un poco dulce), aroma (cereales, frutas y claro est a malta tostada) y color (beige cobrizo oscuro) con una espuma densa. Es una cerveza fuerte de origen belga que recomiendo para disfrutar con buenos amigos.

midovark (809) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 26, 2017
Bottled. Pours deep amber with huge head that disappears quickly. Slight alcohol, sweet fruits, some flowers in aroma, typical Belgian ale notes. In taste its wuite similar with warm mouthfeel, medium body and soft carbonation. I dig it.

CraftyHare (50) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2017
330ml bottle pour deep amber with medium foamy off-white head. Pleasant aroma of bread, icing sugar and vanilla. Flavours of caramel malt, stone fruit, strong yeast, floral characters and spice. Not as big as some other Belgian Strong Ales but beautifully balanced with sweet and creamy finish. Lovely.

moldovan9807 (147) - Oradea, ROMANIA - APR 22, 2017
Aroma and taste of malt, brown sugar, caramel, spice and a hint of alcohol. Not bad, but there are plenty of better Belgian strong ales out there.

A great specimen of strong Belgian Ale. Herbal, bitter but still drinkable - a nice beer for meat or alone to celebrate.
