Bottle at ’t Waagstuk, Antwerp. I vaguely remember this beer as the night got a bit messy from here on out, although I do remember liking it. Mahogany with a thick beige head. Malt, dark fruits, liquorice and a hint of cocoa with that brunish earthy note. A great beer with lots going on. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2009

Sampled in a cozy bar/resturant in Antwerp with pat. The bars specilaity. Dark burnt orangey red colour with an ample off brwon head. Aroma of soft berries poached in red wine, roasted malts, sugar an some autumn spiced pop-pourii. Caramel and golden malts dominate with layers of dried fruit and nutmeg/cinnamon.
