Beer pours a dark brown and slightly cloudy with heavy white head that holds for several minutes.

First smell of this beer is that of caramel, molasses and sugars, and maybe a soft note of some toffee. As the beer lingers and begins to warm throughout consumption, the caramel and molasses scents come through more.

Drinking the beer was an experience, and I recommend drinking this one slowly, and really take in the different flavors as they come and go throughout it. The beer is medium bodied and easy to drink several throughout the night. Slightly bitter, the caramel and molasses flavors mix well on the palate. A bit of a coffee/toffee/chocolate flavor combination comes through later, towards the end of the glass.

330 ml. bottle. Be careful when serving it, it pours an enormous persistent off white head. Dark brown colour, semell of coffee, dark fruits, cherries and caramel. Thin body, much more than I expected, not a strong palate. Taste of chocolate, dark fruits,some licorice: And average beer for the style, IMO.

No matter what happened, this was my first beer consumed in Belgium. Served on-tap in Antwerp, on to the beer:

A ruby brown color takes its shape in the glass. Topping it is a thick rocky head which retains for very long. Aroma offers soft plum, yeast, and minerals, so it's just about on target. The taste is a little more relevent, which brings plum, toasted bread, vague fruit, and...cherry? A kiss of banana gets noticed, but the alcohol does not. It's medium bodied, which finishes off this pleasant dark ale which I head with my lunch.

Serving type: on-tap

Bliss in a bottle.

A - Dark brown with a rust tinged head.

S - quite a few notes. Sweet, red fruity, spices and a bit of a marmalade scent.

T - Sweetish, bit of sugar with marmalade and fruit with a slight hop notes coming in the middle. Very smooth and drinkeable.

Fantastic beer for those preferring a "sweeter" beer.

Pours a chestnut brown with ruby edges and a light toffe colored head. The nose has candied sugars and carmelized brown sugar with a light metal twang. Very water, light yeast note and some faint pear. The taste is heavily sugar based, carmelized brown sugar and candied sugars primarily with a touch of yeast, light nut and pear in the back. Watery in taste and in body, thin and low carbonation.

The beer is dark brown with hints of orange, an off-white head that leaves some curtains - and some lacing.

The smell is sweet, red fruits, spices and oranges.

The taste is sweet brown bread, porridge, candy sugar with red marmalade and fruit acidity.

Low carbonation, soft and smooth, not dry.

A nice dubbel, smooth and welcoming.
