Pours a dark brown color. One inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of European yeast, sweet malt, alcohol, slight syrup, hint of dark citrus, and a hint of spice. Fits the style of a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, alcohol, slight syrup, hint of dark citrus, hint of spice, and a hint of roasted malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, and body.

Plus dark red brown with a sliver of brown head that sticks around a bit. Nose is plum, molasses, over-ripe banana. Flavors include rich date, slight prune and anise with very little bitterness. Sweet finish left me smacking my tongue against the roof of my mouth.

cool Belgian holiday dark here. inky dark brown in color without much head. hardly any light penetrating. the nose is dark fruit, plums and dates and all, dried and sweet, rich brown sugar dark malt and spicy Belgian yeast. the beer is thicker, and its got enough body to hold all these flavors, which alternate and interweave in quite a flattering way. earthy and a touch of smoke as it finishes instead of a residual sugar bomb. a tough brew to drink a lot of, but nice and complex, and different from so many holiday brews. outstanding stuff overall, and it ages well. not quite as epic as their grand cru version, but a lovely winter seasonal.

Pour is very dark red, only noticeable translucent when held to light. A tan head rests up top and retains as a thick ring.

Belgian yeast, caramel, spice, dried fruits and some cocoa in the scent.

Taste is also focused on dark fruits, caramel and molasses with a light yeast character. Decent spice level, some hops, chocolate, some toastiness, really quite sweet overall.

Good MF, lowish carbonation but silky smooth, not much alcohol.

On the sweet+simple side of Belgian darks but pretty tasty. A nice winter/dessert beer.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Bierkaffee ’t Middelpunt in Zolder. Likely vintage. Thx! Dark chestnut, woody, touch black with little mocha head. Nose is full of chocolate, dark fruits, BE yeast, touch syrup, hint esters, lovely & soft, everything you could possibly want. Taste is thick chocolate, lots of ripe & soft BE dark fruits, syrup, chocolate, cake, syrupy, caramel, warming, toffee, hint boozy even. Substantial but easy to drink. Truly impressive within & outside of its style, stellar brew.
