Bottle from de Caigny in Essen, Belgium. The beer is very dark brown to black colored and has a small and little unstable creamy head, with good carbonation.
The aroma is malty, with notes of caramel, roasted malts, dark fruits and a little smoke and chocolate.
The taste is full bodied with a sweetness with caramel and dried fruits. Near the end a light bitterness is noticable with some spicy and warming alcohol and some roasted and chocolate notes.
The finish is light bitter with some warming alcohol and is long noticable.
A little to sweet for me, but still I found it an enjoyable beer. nybol (2346) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2017
Meget vinøes og næsten ingen bitterhed. Sødmen passer fint til stilen.......

Donkerbruin bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zoet en fruitig met iets van rozijn, bramen en kersen. Een lichte koffie smaak is eveneens aanwezig. Mooie combinatie. Bill Becker (1773) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Nice looking beer. Very dark brown with an inch of slightly off white foam. Minimal lacing.
Smells of toffee, bread, dark fruits. It’s not all sweet. There’s more than a hint of bitterness.
The taste is bready, has toffee with some mild pitted fruit, kinda sweet but not when compared to the brewer’ s other offerings. To me, this is sort of bland.
Medium body, fairly light carbonation, feeling all of the 8.5% abv.
Not my favourite from this brewery. limbonicartbeer (125) - - SEP 4, 2016
Cerveza color ámbar rojizo con aromas a maltas y notas dulces. De consistencia semi-espera. Al paladar se perciben notas a maltas tostadas con final acaramelado. Muy agradable cerveza.

Bottle received in the European trade, thanks Saeglopur. Clear chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Caramel, roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruits in the nose. Flavour follows. Caramel, brown sugar, dark dried fruits, syrup, molasses. Sweet with little bitterness, light warming alcohol. Ok, but a bit too sweet for my preference. bubblehouse (1556) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 4, 2016
I’m going to say first off this was an 8 year old bottle from nachbar. Need fresher bottle.
