kaserov (523) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 23, 2017
Típica belga de casi 11 grados, oscura, impenetrable, con mucha espuma marrón (de textura jabonosa) y carbonatación muy activa. En nariz, alcohol, levadura, dark fruits, especias (menos dulce de lo habitual). En boca lo mismo, con mucho cuerpo y presencia del alcohol al final del trago, así como un leve amargor, pero sin llegar a molestar. El problema es que es un poco facilona y "lo de siempre". Se bebe y se disfruta pero tampoco aporta nada especial.

slowrunner77 (11477) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 18, 2017
Brown with big pillowy off white head. Aroma a touch musty...lots of yeast and plum, slight herbal bready character that’s there in the flavor as well with a hint of bitterness.

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 24, 2017
Hazy, light brown with a frothy off white lasting head. Aromas of herbs, sugared oats, fruity esters, some barnyard, caramel. Light tangy, slick and full bodied. Harmonic sweet-bitter overall and hiding its abv pretty well. Lasting light herbal finish. Rather enjoyable.

simontomlinson (228) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Frothy beige head soon left a bubbly cover on a near black still body. Huge aroma of malt, demerara, port, plum & stewed fruits. Light & airy on the palate. Tingly down the throat. Sticky on the lips. Sweet malt tastes with plum, berries, brown sugar, banana, Belgian yeast & very long fruity finish.

Toffee liquorice caramel notes. Typical brownish quad colour. Nice spicy aftertaste, with warming sensation.

Beachmaster (509) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2017
On draught. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head that fades quickly. Nose is a complex mixture of earthy spice and vinous notes. Taste is very complex, with a supremely balanced flavor of subtle spice, a touch of funk, and a vinous backbone. Improves dramatically as it warms to the correct temperature. Has a dry, champagne-like finish with a very long finish. Excellent.

Inoven (567) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2017
Flesje thuis gedronken. Diep donkerbruin helder bier met rode gloed. Het blijft als sluier liggen. Aroma van pruimen en caramel. Smaak is fruitig en zoet. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel, Belgium. The beer is deep brown colored and has a small and stable beige head with medium carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity with notes of caramel, dried fruits, licorice, yeast, spices and a hint of alcohol. Taste is full bodied sweetness with caramel and roasted malts, also raisins and some spices. The finish is light bitter and has some warming alcohol. Nice beer!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2017 Bottle at beerbistro. Many thanks to Lisa and Craig for giving me an excuse to try this! Dark reddish brown with finely bubbled tan head. Sweetish raisin, molasses, and caramel aromas, with some faint hints of oakiness and leather. Slick mouthfeel. Lighter palate than I expected, hides its booze well. Sweet raisins and caramel dominate the flavour, with some cherry on the back end. Tasty stuff.
