BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2007
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a chalice, dark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma was a big dose of dark fruit. The taste was sweet and as expected a lot of prune, raisin, fig and the like. Lightly carbonated. Very little alcohol burn. This pales in comparison to something like St. Bernadus ABT 12, but still a nice beer and an under-rated brewer.

tomer (3481) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 25, 2017
At a tasting, thanks, smallish bubbly head, murky dark brown color, aroma of cake with a whiff of alcohol, dark bread and stale notes, flavor of yeast, vanila ,glue, oxidised, minerals and caramel. Not good, probably old.

Bottle pour. Dark brown with a large somewhat creamy tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, cherries, and raisin. Full creamy body. Light sweet, salty, with a slight bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dorain (177) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
Aus der Flasche (Version 2014) 2017-06 getrunken. Ok hier sorgen die 10,5% für einen vollen Körper und der transportiert eine Kombination aus malzige Süße und herbe Hopfenoten hervorrangend. Die Flasche von 2014 hat nun gute 3 Jahre gelagert und hat nun noch eine schöne leichte Honignote in dieses Bier gezaubert. Traumstoff!

A nice grand cru, classic Belgian. Pours a nice red-brown with a tan head. Smells good, malty and herby. Taste is Belgian, with herbs, Malts and fruit. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Chestnut brown, with a big, even head. Deep, dark fruitiness on the nose - fig, cherry, toffee, raisin. On the palate, soft and smooth, with rich dark fruitiness and soft, sweet sugars, cut by just a touch of alcohol. Big and complex, but smooth, creamy and balanced. Yum.

4.2
vinivini (2264) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 23, 2017
Muddy bronze ale with dense ivory head. Notable lacing. The aroma is fruity. Apple, pear, plum. Caramel. Vinous. Medium to full body. Complex taste. Nice fruit, caramel, candy, spicy yeast. Some hops. Delicious indeed.

4.2
Paladares (229) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2017
Botella. Color marrón oscuro casi negro. Opaca. Espuma no muy abundante, que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma promete. Fruto rojo, bizcocho, algo de cítrico... Extremadamente densa en boca. Pero muy rica. Múltiples matices. Empieza con un sabor licorado con toques especiados, le sigue un cierto tono a chocolate y en paladar viene el caramelo disimulando muchísimo sus diez gradazos. Muy muy rica.

3.9
TychoJames (1283) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2017
Flaska bishops Örebro. Mellanbrun kulör. Doft av jäst, säd, lakrits och torkad frukt. Fyllig och komplex smak. Russin, trä, kakdeg och jäst.

4.4
kapusil (1413) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2017
0.33l bottle. Very dark orangish brown body with a thin off whize head. Aroma of caramel, dark sugar syrup, raisins and figs. Taste of caramel, orange zest, dark sugar, raisins, figs and floral hops. Sweet, dark fruity and complex. Great beer.
