Saw this beer all over Brussels, Belgium in Supermarkets and corner stores and had to pick up a bottle. I know of #10's high ranking so I decided to give this one a whirl, although took it back to the states before trying it.
When I was ready to open the bottle a few day after bringing it home, I realized it was a bit shaken up in the Transatlantic Flight. An overwhelming amount of carbonation came out like a soda that was shake up. I immediately poured half of it into a tulip glass. Poured brown with an excessive amount of foam. Had to let it slowly dissipate before I poured the final ounce or two into the twelve ounce glass. Was able to salvage about nine ounces of beer. Poured a dark brown color, slightly translucent when held up to the light.
The first sip of course very effervescent with the carbonation, but still felt light in my mouth, not syrupy or thick. The smell and taste was that of a slight amount of dark fruits. Alcohol was present in the taste as the beer weight in at 9,2%. Overall an excellent selection
