Annata 2010. Invecchiata benissimo, con aroma deciso e avvolgente, e forti sentori liquorosi. Capolavoro!

Draft pour at Brouwers, during their 12th anniversary party. Dark, cola brown pour with a disappearing head. Doughy, bready malts aroma. Some caramel, some lingering sweetness. Flavor is straight up raisin bran in a glass. Lingering bran, caramel, grain, and some raisin like fruit. A tasty beer for sure. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2017
On tap at Brouwer’s for their 12th anniversary. Murky cola brown pour. Boozy brown sugar and sweet medjool dates galore. Dark fruits, candi sugar, vanilla, a bit of leather, and juuuust a hint of mild tobacco. This is *seriously* tasty stuff. szymonskc (1065) - Skórcz, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017

Nice beer. The 2012 version. Bready aroma. Nice dark brown color and weighty feel. Carbonation held up. Bready, figs and some Belgian spice. ipamonger (81) - New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 7, 2017
2009 bottle. Pours a blackish amber, slightly hazy, with no real head to speak of. Aromas of vanilla, raisin, rum, banana, cloves, cinnamon, bit of toast and caramel. Medium body, with a really soft carbonation. A bit creamy texture, with a dryer finish. Sweet character, bit of umami, bit of sour. I’ve had better aged beers, but this is a good one. Definitely a De Struise calibre of beer. mariuspoenari (3179) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2016
On tap at Craft & Draft Amsterdam. Dark ruby pour, clear, with a tan head. Notes of dried cherries, cognac, spices, bell peppers, light metallic notes, dried fruit, liquor. Medium body and carbonation. Svartvit (1005) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2016
2013 & 2016 sampled from draft at Craft & Draft during De Struise tap takeover. Both pour a deep dark brown amberish color with the 2016 showing a bit more of a beige head. Aroma is full of dried fruits, figs, cinnamon allspice with a clear malty bread note to it. On the 2016 it’s more boozy but also show more of a chocolate note. Taste has both pretty spice forward, malty sweetness, again dried fruits. Over medium sweet, medium bitter. Full body, close to no carbonation, very rich. 2016 is too boozy, out of balance and doesn’t really open up. 2013 is a beautifully balanced and mellowed out sipper to get you through a cold night. androman (2937) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2016
