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.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a deep dark brown with a flourishing head of beige foam that recedes to a very thin cap. Soapy lacing and alcohol legs. On the nose its cherries, bready yeast, strong malt undertones, sticky fruit and some horse blanket. The hops are forward on the palate with a little pepper accompanied by the yeasty sweetness and the ripe fruits. The malt is good and strong like a dark beer should be but the balance is perfection. It has a medium-heavy body but its practically weightless on the palate and finishes off-dry with some alcohol warming. This ale has dash and a soaring spirit. One of the best.

Ulysse (455) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
Weak Aroma. Tastes like its sister the noire de Chambly but with less water and a beer can taste.

explosivedog (563) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 13, 2016
355ml bottle. Aroma is cinnamon, cloves, cream, chocolate. Flavour is lots of dried fruit, some cinnamon, chocolate and cherry liqueur. Rich, spicy and no intention of hiding the strength. Quite nice.
