RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Very similar to the fruity, spicy quality of the blond, but with the touch of wood and toasted malt. Nice and malty, sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

erikaraeb (218) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Malty, woodsy smell. Earthy overall. Somewhat alcoholic taste with additional nuts and molasses. Light in bod for such a drink. Solid for the price. Nice foamy head.

Zilverenmaan (192) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2017
Deep red with thick, persistent, creamy mokka head. Aroma soft: roasted malts, oily. Taste very nice: roasted malts, very oily, some alcohol, some sweetness in the back. A little astringent mouthfeel, like cinnamon. Not too rich or complex, decent.

PietS (265) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2017
Sweet fruity (berries), liquorice, some bitterness. The beer has a good combination of light and heavier flavours and a good mouthfeel. Nice.

yaff (35) - la fontalaye, FRANCE - JUN 5, 2017
à la maison. Bière d’une opacité remarquable. Des notes subtiles de café et de cacao se dégagent. Bonne bière mais peut-être pas assez de corps pour rivaliser avec la Van De Kaiser par exemple.

vinivini (2385) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown, fine beige head. Perfect rerention. The aroma is as classic as it only could be. Nice spicy yeast, esters, caramel, toffee, banana. Full body. The taste is delicious and complex. Medium dry. Rich dark malts. Finest Belgian yeast. Prune. Notable hops and subtle roast on ending. Excellent balance. No alco feel. Great effort this one.

florent.janssens (353) - - APR 29, 2017
Arome alcool. Belle mousse qui tiens et couleur brun/ambré. Limite porter, gout de torréfaction predominant. Elle à du corps. Très bonne bière
