4.25/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark, dark brown, slightest hazy hue. Thick dence head.

Sm - Toffee, caramel, dark syrup, carrotts and alcohol. Sublime!

T - Wonderful, deep, dark fruit and toffee taste. Ends in a nice roasty afterthought. Warming alcohol.

M - Full body with lots of carbonation. As Belgian as it gets!

D - It is a wonderfully complex brew that is just too drinkable.

4.61/5  rDev +10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark brown unfiltered with a reddish tinge, 4 fingers of tan fluffy head, hard to see any carbonation.

S: Dark fruits, floral figs and raisins, and cherries.

T: Awesome balance of dark fruits figs raisins and cherries.

M: Thick, well rounded body that comes and goes wanting another sip. Highly carbonated.

O: This beer is delicious and worthy of tasting. Lonely planet is often wrong but not on this one. Reminds me of Rochefort 8 or 10, but unique in itself. Got in Bruges near beer wall store ‘B2B’, drank Dec 7th, 2013 in Brussels.

(no freshness date - poured into a balloon)

A: large, gushing foam - wells up quickly, gradually settles out... moderately hazy grape red hue to the liquid... poured most of it into the glass, last little bit was incredibly murky, grey-ish... keeps a steady, active cap, however, pretty much no lacing

S: malty-sweet raspberry and apple, mild wild spice in the background... vague lipstick quality, touch of caramelized wood... overall, moderately vibrant and inviting aromas

T: dark candi sugar, malty red ale similar to many Belgian noel beers, ... little hops... but perhaps a faint toasted character - predominantly a showcase for spicy, dark fruit (berry, cidery apple) yeast flavors... most of the bitterness seems alcohol/yeast-derived... bit of a nuttiness late in the aftertaste

M: expanding burst of gas outside, though with a lighter, compact round body on the interior... pretty dang dry in the finish with a invigorating, peppery booze/phenolic tingle left on the palate

O: like a Belgian noel beer with an enhanced phenolic intensity, wild culture influence... De Dolle's ales have this strange balance, teetering on the edge of disaster; electric, dynamic fruity yeast character just saving many of their products
