TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Beer pours gorgeous mahogeny with a nice thick tan colored head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is rich with malt and dark dried fruits, i.e. figs and raisins, also light yeastiness and spices. Flavor yield a bit less than the promise of the aroma. Flavors of sweet malt, light yeast, and light spices are present. The finish is dry. This was quite enjoyable.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2004
This poured slightly hazy dark brown with a creamy long lasting head. Decent lacing inside the glass. The aroma is typical Belgian yeast, malt, caramel and dried fruits. Smooth palate with malty sweetness and just a hint of bitterness. Just a touch of alcohol in the finish.

A satisfying example of the style. abv .Poured with a great head that didn’t last. Nice malt background. Palate stayed soft and never lost it’s edge. At 7% it was the perfect

(750 ml bottle) Pours a hazy amber-brown color with a large frothy beige head. Has an aroma of molasses, light alcohol, banana, and raisins. This is a light bodied beer with a creamy texture that is just a bit thin. Has flavors of nuts, caramel, and malt.
