Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Head is excellent: thick, off-white, and enticing. The aroma is complex. The alcohol is very present and matched with a sweet malt and ripe fruit nose. The taste is complex and satisfying at first but does not resolve very well. The finish I find lacking. Also surprising is the thin mouthfeel considering the gravity of the brew. Overall, a fine belgian style dark but not on my list of favorites.

RexTalionis (3615) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle. Unclear dark brown in color with an off-white head. Ripe dark fruity sweetness, hints of spicyness and vinous notes in aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Some roasted malts and brown sugary notes later on. Sweet fruityness in taste, some vinous notes and overripe plums in taste. Creamy finish with some sweetness and hints of spices. Quite nice.

Ulysse (464) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
Weak Aroma. Tastes like its sister the noire de Chambly but with less water and a beer can taste.

Bottle into snifter. Pours a deep brien with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon and dried fruits. Taste is dried fruit and cardboard. A bit musty too. Nothing special but not awful.
