I do not like to rate based upon only one sample, but I think that this is perhaps one of the finest Belgians available. Huge, complex berry fruit in the nose and tons more as you sip. Incredibly this has also an almmost Rochefort-like restraint. Tremendous.

igneous1 (1506) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2003
brown with deep red tones, nice thin head, lasting with lots of very fine sediment. unripe pear is the first aroma that strikes my nose. not sure it can be defined exactly, but i smell some sort of chocolate/banana mixture. flavor is lots of apple and pear, just a little alcohol and pretty sweet.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2003
Strong butterscotch aroma. Hazy, brown color, light brown head, very good lace. Soft, light sweet, light bitter, full, butterscotch, banana and a hint of vanilla. The finish lasts forever and is bittersweet.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Was very effervescent, aroma was of yeast and caramel. Started sweet and finished slightly dry. Some plum, molasses, burnt clove.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2003
Bottled. Murky brown in color. Small bubbles in the diminishing head. Spicy aroma with notes of banana. Smokey flavor initially, then with notes of licorice and tit-bits. Slight alcohol feel.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Cloudy brown color. Big head. Not much aroma but a little malt is noticed.Taste is mixed between caramel and roasted malt. Finish is yeasty with a hint of malt. Weak for a Trappist ale.

edlek (4) - USA - AUG 16, 2003 does not count
Pours with big head. Cherry brown color. Crisp clean taste some caramel with a hint of sweetness. Couldn't detect anything that stood out in the nose. Alcohol well hidden. Pleasant but not outstanding.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2003
Bottle at GBBF 2003 Nice spicy aroma. Muddy brown appearance with cappuccino head. Chocolate syrup with tonic water. Finishes slightly medicinal. OK, but not exceptional.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Big, classic lacing head. Chestnut color, hazy. Caramel and malt in the aroma, producing an aroma like a flank steak grilled in a Portugese restaurant. slightly peppery flavor with raisins. Not up there with the great Belgians, in my opinion, lacking the fruitiness beyond the caramel malts and sweetness. Things got more interesting later on, though. A classic "salty" finish to my tastebuds, perhaps suggested by the life in the palate. Some alcohol comes out later. Fun to drink. (bottle at GBBF 2003)
