Definitely a fan of this one. This was one of my first real craft beers and I have to say I think I peaked off the start. Definitely stronger than what I was expecting, but thats probably just because of my lack of experience. Overall though it was a very well polished beer, strong yet smooth at the same time. Alcohol was well hidden.

Good, beer, a lot smoother and easier to drink than I thought it would be, especially being considered a "dark ale". It is expensive but its very good! But any company who has been brewing beer for over 500 years should be good!

Pours a murky brown with some sediment present, big dense three finger tan foam head that takes a while to settle, leaves gobs of lace.

Aroma is nice sweet malts, candi sugars, brown sugar, dark fruits, plums, raisins and figs. Some nuttiness and earthy spice to round this one out, almost like a dry dirt smell but not in a bad way.

Taste is is like the nose nice sweetness of the malt and sugars up front, lightens as it moves to dark fruity notes and finishes earthy and dry. Strange starts full and finishes lighter medium. Pretty darn tasty, I have had this one before not sure why I didn't review back then but looked good at the store yesterday thought I would treat myself.

Mouthfeel is strange starts all sugary and full but moves to a lighter medium in the finish. Carbonation is on the lower side for a Belgian brew, which I enjoy.

Overall I like this beer kind of strange I haven't reviewed it before as I have had it a few times. Maybe not he best Belgian Strong Dark but enjoyable just as I remember it.

This is my first Belgian strong ale and its a nice one. It pours a thick light tan head. The color is dark amber. The aroma is complex mixture of sweet and fruity with a strange funk. The taste is as complex as the smell its coffee/caramel, zesty/sweet fruits and faint hops. Overall a very complex brew and I am grateful to have found it.

A lively brew with a big steady head of foam and a dark brown colour. Smell of dark fruits (plums, raisins, dates) and caramel. Nice rich taste which is moderately sweet in the mouth with dark fruits, malt and toffee and mildly bitter and dry in the finish with a light roasty and nutty profile. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied and easy to drink. Nice.

A - Dark burgundy colored pour with a very thick, creamy, frothy head and lots of active, steady carbonation.

S - Sweet Belgian candy sugar/malt, spice, clove, dark fruit, raisins, and prunes.

T - Earthy sweet malt, clove, spice, raisins, figs, and a mild earthy bitterness on the backside.

M - Big medium body with a wet finish.

O - A tried a true Classic.
