Ruby with tinges of brown with a persistent finger of bubbly foam. The smell is fragrant with licorice and molasses present and some dark fruits. The taste is rich and sweet dark fruits with a bit of alcohol in the back. All in all a nice quad. Thanks to Byronic for bringing this back from Belgium for me.

Bottled in 2008. Murky dark rusty brown pour with a huge three finger head with decent retention and lacing. Sweet, malty, boozey nose with lots of brown bread and dark fruit along with hints of toffee, nuts, and subtle chocolate. The taste follows suit with rich dark fruit and sweet caramel malt along with hints of prunes, licorice, brown bread, tea, leather, subtle chocolate, and booze. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly syrupy with a surprising amount of fizzy carbonation still present for such an old beer. The boozey finish I remembered from fresher bottles has become much smoother with age. Overall, this has held up nicely in the cellar with only a slight criticism of a bit too much sweetness.

Dark brown reddish color with a huge thick beige head with good retention and leaving a good deal of laces.
Nice aroma of oranges, pineapple soaked in rum, tea bags, plums, licorice, crystalized fruits, malty but not roasted as color hints.
Bold flavor full of yeast spices, candied sugar, chocolate, dark and crystalized fruits, figs, perfume, herbal hops, nuts, caramels, grape juice, oak and pine. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 12% abv is quite well hidden.
Flavorful and complex beer and as hoppy as most Belgian IPAs. Not cloying once it is not that sweet.
Excellent beer, good sipper for a cold day such as today. I haven’t had this in over a year. In my opinion it is underrated, you got to drink it quite close to expiration date.

Poured a super dark chestnut, pretty dark for a quad. A bit cloudy as well, light doesn't travel well through this. Not a bad thing necessarily, but interesting to note. Rum soaked raisins, hint of toffee, caramel, lots of Belgian candi sugar. I get a touch of roasted grains in the finish too, perhaps a touch of roasted barley or chocolate malt in here? Pretty nice quad. Doesn't really compare with the big guys like Rochefort 10 or Chimay Blue but will do in a pinch.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of April 2013, so it's well out of date. Acquired ages ago from a supermarket while on a trip to Belgium. I'm hoping that its strength will have preserved it from excessive deterioration. This brew comes with a rather ironic name.
Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A dark reddish-brown hue that appears black in the glass. Highly carbonated. Yields a large head of creamy beige foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of sweet, fruity malt with hints of prunes, dried fruit, fruitcake, yeast esters, caramel, brown sugar and faint spice. A warming whiff of booze in the background. Nicely rounded.
Tastes of sweet, fruity malt with a lingering finish. Notes of prunes, dried fruit, fruitcake, brown sugar, caramel, yeast esters, mild spice and faint stewed leaves. A touch of warming alcohol in the background, followed by a mild yeasty character upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with lively carbonation and good body. Slightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of fruity malt, brown sugar and yeast.
Pretty good - seriously boozy but a pleasant sipper. Looks OK, while the aroma and flavour are very sweet and fruity. Plenty of dried fruit, sugar and yeast in evidence. Body is alright but could be a tad more unctuous for the strength. Goes down nicely enough; a tasty brew to finish with. Worth sampling if you have the chance.
