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.

Poured into a brandy snifter. The beer pours dark toffee brown, becoming opaque in the glass, with a slowly dissipating light tan head. Some lacing is left behind on the glass as the head retreats. There are aromas of roasted malt, juniper, dark fruits like fig and plum, toffee, and some alcohol. I get plenty of roasted malt and bread crust in the flavor with juniper, toffee, fig, and plum. I'm getting some hop bitterness in the back, but the other flavors shine more. The alcohol also does come out a little in the flavor as well. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and the alcohol provides a nice warming effect. This is easily drinkable for a beer above 8% ABV. This is a very good beer.
