Once again, had in China.

Great with "chocolate Brownie" However, I definitally drank this beer but it was most definattlally and light colour: very strange.

Regandless, beter than Duvel.
Drank out of a wiskey glass at bar; rant not included because of cultural apretiation. And thick head regardless of glass. although thined out to little lase. Taste was great; that may be all that need to be said but if not maore this may be ended on internet. The taste was rich and very belgium esc. complex. Not nessesarally yeasty but very much so malty and quazi yeast and great.

3.5/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
Pours a dark brown body with a slight red hue when held to the light. Crowned by a thick, light brown head.

Aroma:
Sweet. Table sugar and light nutmeg. Raisin and hints of cherry. Caramel and distinctive Belgian yeast. A bit of cola. So far, so good.

Taste:
Here's where it loses me a bit... It's malty and sweet but it has an interesting taste I just can't get past and the best I can come up with to describe it is sour prunes. Dates and figs with a bit of cherry. Plenty of Belgian candies and nutmeg among other spices.

Mouthfeel:
Very smooth and easy to drink. Sweet finish. Light carbonation.

Overall:
While I encountered some flavors I didn't personally care for, I have a hard time faulting the entirety of this brew since there is a fair amount here to like. Worth trying, but if I want a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, I'll reach for a McChouffe.
