Very dark copper colour, light fizzy white head. The nose is raisiney and alcoholic with hints of brown sugar and a light spiciness. The body is spritzy hinting of light fruit. Some yeast and a quick alcohol bite. Lightly sweet.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Transparent burgandy/amber, disappearing small near white head. Powerful astringent alcohol aromas (scotch, vodka) conceal most everything else. Hints of chocolate, caramel, malt, champagne grapes. Flavots of malt, milk chocolate, nutiness, overcome quickly by alcohol finish.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2005 Pours dark amber with light head. transparent. Smells of alcohol and chocolate. Malty taste, first sip very fizzy and carbonated. The following sips were more smooth and less fragrant as the glass finished

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Huge, thick, lasting head, gives you a moustache! Aroma is very weak, somewhat fruity. Color is nice reddish brown, slightly murky. Taste is dry with nice aftertaste. Nothing special, but I would drink again.

Lubiere (12402) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2005
Orangey brown ale with a thick bubbly caramel white head. Malty and fruity aroma with some yeast. Sweet rich malt with notes of coriander and licorice, dryish finish, but overall very pleasant dubbel with a medium body. Metallic hops drop quickly but is retained for some time in finish.

Tejas (973) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Smells like prunes & I hate prunes. I won’t hold that against the beer though. Tastes sour& dry to me. Not as dark as I expected from a Belgian Dubbel but has plenty of malt, that’s for sure. Not real crazy about the flavor in this one. Glad it only cost $3.99 for a 750ml b/c I poured it out.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2005
This poured an eartyhy brown color with an instantaneously collapsing, unimpressive white head. The aroma is malty sweet with scents of dried, dark fruits and hints of chocolate. Light bodied, the taste is of sweet malts, sweet-sour fruit, and alcohol. This is a nice seasonal warmer, but nothing special.
