Head pleasant and creamy of good maintenance, leading you in a hypnotic wish. Stout build, this beer of great aroma generosity is dominated by the sweetness and nuances of caramel offers sweet flavor, but sugar free. This beer is now brewed by brasserie Caulier for the former Rochefortoise brewery.

Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
Bottle. Red brown colour with a big off-white head. Spicy sweet caramel aroma and a sweet spicy fruity taste. Medium body and a sweet light alcoholic finish.

Ernest (7822) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Bottle, Brussels, May 2005. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium/dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), with light notes of candy sugar and orange peel. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I guess I just don’t like the Caulier house character too much, because I think most if not all of my ratings fall below the average, often markedly so, as here. Extremely sweet with a pretty straightforward malty nose.

Ungstrup (38423) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2005
An opaque brown beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, spices, and celery. The flavor is very sweet spicy with the alcohol shining thru.

joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2005
Cloudy brown coloured with a huge beige head. Spicy aroma with notes of dried fruits and caramel. Spicy flavour with notes of malts and caramel.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
Impressive creamy head, that never dies down. Sweet complex flavor, that unfortunately borders on nauseating. Dry but yet fruity finish. Typical Belgian and quite nice. And of course: cool label!

aspidites (1271) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
A nice beer plums and blackcherries in the nose with hints of chocalate andfigs nicely balanced with a clean finish.

Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Pours a fluffy light brown head on a deep dark brown body. Lots of sweet chocolate in the aroma along with dark fruit, raisins, plums and hint of berries. Sweet, full and very nice. Flavor starts sweet with a good sour/bitterness towards the end. Pretty well-balanced with roasted malt, cookie, chocolate and sour fruit notes.
Thanks a lot Michael (Dalle) for the bottle!

TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2004
Bottled (BB 12/2005)
Dark ruby with huge tanned head, lots of lace. Roasted aroma of black coffee and burned sugar. Very port-wineous mouthfeel. Caramel, candy-like flavor with some roasty notes. Sweet, maybe even too sweet. A bit like Scotch Silly. Allcohol warms in the aftertaste. For dessert, and to drink slowly.

motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2004
bottle. pretty dark with a thin creamy head. tantalising aroma of coriander and clove as well as cream and lemongrass. tastes a lot like abbaye des rocs - lots of cream, port, christmas biscuits, ginger. really tasty and luscious, quite sweet but it works
