Very classic, Belgian beer. Decent esters, fairly low carbonation. Like so many others, but others do it better.

Belgian beer fulfills all you should have a good strong ale. But fails alexelencia of other beers of this style. It standand beer, accurate, reliable but not special.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - MAR 4, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2017 Birra dal marrone scurissimo. Schiuma color caffellatte, fine e di buona persistenza. All?olfatto sentori di cacao e malto tostato. Al palato corpo medio con note di malto tostato, cioccolato e caff. Nel finale lievemente amara. Questa birra abbastanza alcolica ma non si sente per niente, infatti va gi con molta facilit. Unottima birra.

Zarrach76 (216) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 3, 2017
Trs belle brune lgrement voile avec de superbes reflets rubis surmonte par une belle mousse dense ocre... Trs apptissant tout ceci... En attendant, le nez est magistral ! Larmes dominant est la confiture de fraise, avec son lot de fruits rouges et baies noires (myrtille, framboise, mre...). Jai rarement eu un nez sur la fraise aussi prononc, cest un rgal. Derrire, on devine les bons malts, des sucres nobles, le miel, la gele de coin, le caramel et le sirop drable en petite dose, les notes dagrumes (orange, pamplemousse, pomelo), les notes boises lointaines, labricot gorg de soleil, lananas, la banane, la mirabelle, la vanille... Franchement, cest droutant mais quest ce que cest bon ! Il me tarde de glisser le breuvage dans le gosier... La texture est race, avec une scheresse qui dispute aux sucres et la rondeur, lalcool est au top niveau avec ses 8.2% tonnants de vivacit sans masquer quoi que ce soit, lamertume est bien l avec une astringence soutenue tandis que la levure est impeccable et que la carbonatation est dans la moyenne. Non, ce qui surprend aprs le premier contact buccal, cest cette astringence avec de grosses notes de bois (cdre, pin, chne...), de rsine, de cire et de cuir. Cest vraiment une impression singulire qui dnote par rapport au nez trs fruit. Vraiment, un superbe exercice dquilibriste en plus dun jeu subtil sur les textures et les sensations. Le final est sur ces notes de bois et de levure, de crypte, dglise et dencens, long, lancinant, enivrant. Un breuvage unique en son genre, un must ! Bouteille33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

puren (981) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - FEB 17, 2017
PREZENTACJA: ciemnobrązowe, pod światło rubinowe, bardzo obfita piana dość szybko się dziurawi i opada do i tak solidnego kożucha, pozostawiając na szkle sporo śladw;
AROMAT: karmel, cukier trzcinowy, rum, lekki alkohol, po chwili czuć też pieczone jabłko i czekoladę;
ODCZUCIE: ciało niskie, średnio nasycone, bardzo lekko rozgrzewa przełyk;
SMAK: początkowo bardzo wytrawny - palony karmel, cukier trzcinowy, przechodzi w obrzydliwie słodki - też karmel i cukier trzcinowy, a także odrobina alkoholu, po tym przychodzi zbyt słabo kontrująca drewniana goryczka i dość długi metaliczno-czekoladowy posmak;
OGLNIE: piwo ładnie się prezentuje, ma złożone aromat i smak, choć w tym drugim przeszkadza w pewnym momencie ogromna słodycz i nieprzyjemny bo kończąca go silna metaliczna nuta.

nathanvc (360) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2017
At Bruges Beer Fest 2017. Pours dark brown with a dense beige head. The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, raisins and some yeast. It tastes light sweet and medium bitter. The finish is dry and hoppy. Creamy texture, soft carbonation. Not a typical dessert beer for its style; well-balanced.
