Bought a bottle of this from the Tobu department store in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. Poured into a Rochefort goblet. The looks of this are okay, bubbling up from a dark amber hue with foamy petri dish style foam, leaving a bit of lacing around the edges. However, the smell and the taste for this just paled in comparison to other strong Belgians. Not much else beyond a hop scent, and the taste left me wanting more. Overall, this is still a high-quality beer, but nothing like its more superior cousin brews. I liked this, but I won't be buying it again.

Pours a clear brown with a khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and some slightly fruity aromas. Taste is very much the same with a mild bitterness with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp but medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice sweet and malty flavor that I am enjoying.
