It's on my list of "Try before Die" beers.
I actually tried them side by side, mine was 13 months in the bottle at the time. I think it may have sat for too long though, as it had a coppery after taste. It was pretty close though. The real one had more of a sweet raisin/prune taste to it.
Buy Belgian beers, chocolates, waffles, cheeses, speculoos... online/The Belgian Shop from Belgium

This is where I bought the real ones. It cost about 150 bones for a six pack though. Not cheap! Could have gotten them cheaper on eBay but I really didnt trust any of the sellers there.
