look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark brown with a creamy, compact tan head that doesn't leave much in the way of lacing.

S: Aromas of roasted chestnuts, molasses, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and raisins are very apparent on the nose. No booziness whatsoever.

T: Opens sweet and creamy with notes of vanilla bean, milk chocolate, coffee, caramel, heavy cream, molasses, chestnuts, raisins, figs, and prunes with subtle earthy hop tones arriving just before the finish. This beer finishes sweet with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, and caramel being particularly evident.

M: Full-bodied, thick, and creamy. Almost viscous in the mouth. Carbonation is a little more active than expected. Very filling, but pleasant.

O: This is an excellent Belgian strong dark ale, and is a definite improvement over Achel's other bruins (both of which are very good). More than worth seeking out if you can get it.
