3.93/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Had this in Cafe De Wildeman, served in a La Trappe gold rimmed chalice

Pours with a dark brown body, some hints of dark burgandy when held up to the light. Tan head with good retention

Smell, dark fruits, some thick sweet malt. Some phenols coming off, little bit of alcohol

Taste, esters, dried fruit, almonds. Little bit of liqourice, and a few phenols again. A fair bit of sweetness, slightly too much

A fairly good dark belgian style ale, not anywhere near on par with the belgian trappists but drinkable none the less

Serving type: bottle

4.3/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

(on tap at The Publican - served in a 10 oz footed goblet)

A: hazy, dark amber liquid... foam has a spongy appearance but remains only in the form of a sticky, gooey cap... overall, looks rather unrefined

S: golden raisin, caramel... fairly assertive rose-perfumy esters... not at all fusel or medicinal

T: intense rosé vinous fruit, raisiny sweetness rounding that out, adding depth to it... not forwardly boozy... mild bitterness like a flower stem... bit of dark grape... very mellow tonic booze... not heavily malty

M: ridiculously feather-light, almost to the point of having a flattened body... while you don't overtly taste the alcohol, it certainly thins out and helps float the beer across the palate

O: probably the most deceptively light and most aromatic quad I've had... went alright with the pasty goat cheese and figs I ate with it... excellent and I recommend it any chance I get

Serving type: on-tap

3.2/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga

a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head

s: huge banana and vanilla up front. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present

t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish

m: medium body, medium carbonation

o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength

Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
