Ver surprised by the 8%, it does not taste strong. A fruity banana aroma at first then becomes very sweet. Nice head when poured from bottle that lasts for a few sips. By the end of the glass sweetness was taking over.

CraftyHare (49) - 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 (146) - 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.

massingasetta (721) - Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 22, 2017
A great specimen of strong Belgian Ale. Herbal, bitter but still drinkable - a nice beer for meat or alone to celebrate.

Tinaccio (165) - Milano, ITALY - APR 9, 2017
Tried many times, both tapped and bottled. Last time probably from tap at Bar Castei, Montecchio Maggiore (VI), Italy in his particular glass. Colour is amber, with a great foamy creamy head. Aroma is toffee, dark ripen fruit, malt, spices. Taste is toffee, caramel, malt, dark fruit and alcohol. Finish is long and malty.
