Bready, sweet malt on the nose with a hint of fruit and spice. Nice carbonation creates a pleasant mouth-feel. Sweet bread notes give way to spices and then on to a lingering finish of cherry. The note of cherry I detect is what keeps me coming back to this brew. One of the best.

Bursztynowe, zamglone z gęstą pianą. Piana dosyć szybko się redukuje, nie zdobi szkła. W aromacie ciemne i czerwone owoce. Trochę przypraw. Jest też karmelowa słodycz. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Przyjemny karmelowy finisz. Przyjemnie się pije.

tlyx (102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2017
Doft av parfymerat te, nypon. En aning fruktig smak, svart te, torr avslutning med en viss kärvhet. För att vara en belgisk ale känns det nästan som en vanlig öl.

Bouteille 33 cl - couleur brune opaque, mousse beige crémeuse épaisse et persistante, arômes cerise noire, petites bulles, goût sur le pain, torréfié, alcool qui réchauffe la gorge, complexe mais très agréable

ozzatoadisback (172) - ITALY - JUN 3, 2017
Pours dark amber with visible carbonation and a quite dense white head which shows good retention and nice lacing. Rich and vivd aroma with caramel and brown sugar sweetness, fruitiness, slight spiciness and a refreshing herbal/balsamic note. Taste follows the aroma with medium to high caramelish and sugarish sweetness, fruity esters, slight spiciness/pricklyness and just enough bittering balance in a balsamic/herbal finish. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation, quite creamy. An highly drinkable and enjoyable strong ale that is still quite complex. Good
