This beer started great...nice pour into a chalice, deep brown with a reasonable head. Smell was nice if unobtrusive...caramel, malty, some ligjt dark fruit or molasses. The taste even started fine with some tartness among the yeasty belgium-y-ness...but the mouthfeel came off as too thin and the finish seemed weak and without any lasting interest. Hard to describe, but it just seemed to lack depth...like it had the veneer of belgium but was someplace less interesting underneath. Overall, fine. Just not sometging I will seek out again.

I usually love complex dark beers but this one fall short. The pour left little head and the colour was a merky brown, not appealing. The smell was kinda pungent and it didn't taste like a typical beer on lees - it was bitter, lacking depth with a lingering unwelcomed flat and bitter after taste. I won't finish the beer as it isn't work the calories! Seriously! Maybe I got a bad bottle or something. Another reviewer said it was 'thin' and I think that sums it up nicely. Doesn't compare to anything I've had from Unibroue. Very disappointing.

New 750ml bottle with corkscew system.

poured into a maudite glass.

result a brown beer witl limited head foam,

medium carbonation.

smell like roasted cofee and chocolate, malt

taste is a bit thin i think for a strong brown beer. limited body.

mouthfeel was a bit thin too.

overall, i tought that this beer miss something, i would like it with for tasty flavors, for edge to it,

so, its ok, but im not impress with this
still worth a try if you are looking for a not too strong brown beer.

341mL bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a amber color with a generous off-white creamy head which disappears rather quickly. Very limited lacing on the glass.

S - Very nice dark fruits aromas. Notes of malt are very present as well. I also pick out some yeast, dry apricot, and some hop. This makes a very good blend, quite spicy.

T - Very fruity taste with a malty sweetness, a good amount of yeast and some hop flavors. The bitterness is low, as I would expect from the style.

M - Good carbonation, medium to full body. At finish, the mouthfeel is a bit syrupy with the alcohol adding a warming touch.

O - A good surprise from this brewer! I was not expecting something to style, but it is! Without having the complexity of some great Belgian Strong Dark Ale, this beer gives you some good flavors to enjoy! Definitely above the average!

One of the browness beers I've ever seen : it's not close to red, nor black, it's really brown. It doesn't make a lot of brew, but the head stays on top for a long time and covers most of the beer. It smells good, it smells mostly malt and caramel, I also see a hint of chocolate. The taste is not too strong, not too light, just ok. It tastes pretty much what it smells, malt and caramel, so it's a little sweet. The mouthfeel is ok, while it has not anything exceptional, it feels like most of the strong brown beers, which is a good feel to me.

So overall, it's a good beer, it worths the try.

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty brown color ale with a large head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of solid malt notes with light caramel and some light fruity ester. Taste is better then expected with notes of a solid malt backbone with semi-sweet caramelized notes and some light fruity ester with a bready yeast strain. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed and easily drinkable.
