UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Wahnsinn! Unglaublich komplex. Es hört einfach nicht auf zu schmecken. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Sarlacc83 (2379) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2017
Bottle brought back from Belgium. Thanks Mathieu!

A: Mahogany in color with a foamy creme head and lacing.

N: Very bready with a lot of clove. Enormous raisin and prune layered onto toffee. Plum as well. Touch of honey. Brown sugar and cola. Pumpernickel. Syrupy cherry. Very rich and expressive.

T: Big dried fruit and loaf following through on the tongue. Sweet but not cloying. Neither bitter nor spicy but still so refined.

M: Medium heavy body, no alcohol, soft carbonation.

O: A wonderful beer that ages so well. This one was 6 or 7 years old. Superb; a treat almost every time I have had it.

Hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has brown sugar, dried fruits and some brownie/cake notes. Taste is sweet, malty, sugary with a light yeast spice. Medium body, quite effervescent. Classic, well made, not too complex.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2017 Gregoriaans gezang galmt door de kloostergangen, het orgel dat daar weer bovenuit galmt. Je haast je naar je kamer. sober ingericht met bed en schrijftafel. Je gaat zitten en je wacht. vluchtig geschuifel klinkt in de gang een klop op de deur. Je hart slaat over als je deur opent. een oogopslag, een stille zucht. twee tellen verder liggen alle kleren op de grond. Zo'n bier.

Poured in a tulip glass. A buddy of mine and I split a bottle. I've always been a fan of Belgium's but this beer is next level. The color is a dark brown with a bit of haze. The smell is sweet with a nice finish. The finish gives you no clue to the alcohol content as it's quite clean. A true gem!!!

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 Pite piwo było lekko leżakowane (ok 1,5 roku po terminie). W zapachu cała paleta suszonych owoców (śliwki, rodzynki, jabłka) plus słodowość (chleb) i nuty miodowe. Niska goryczka i nienachalna pełnia. Wyczuwalne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu w połączeniu z aromatem daje skojarzenia słodkich wiśni z nalewki.

legendary (26) - Wroclaw, POLAND - NOV 30, 2017
Smells of gingerbread with a nice noble bourbon-like alcohol note and some nuts I think.
Pours hazy amber with very high, but rather spotty head - reduced to nearly nothing in a minute. Sweet bread-like taste with some vanilla. Stingy on tongue, it's over-carbonated. Feels rather thick, but still only slightly sweet. Alcohol is hidden quite well. There's nothing wrong with this beer except over-carbonation (spotty head & stingy on tongue). Aroma is by far the best thing in here. Nothing extraordinary, just a good beer.
