Really dark copper brown color with a thick and nicely lacing off-white head. Aroma is full of bready Belgian yeast and dark malts with a touch of molasses. Starts rich, thick and sweet with a subtle musky spice. Finishes sweet and smooth with milk chocolatey cookie notes. Hides its alcohol very well. Another nice Allagash beer. Thanks slob!

dark brown, thick head, almost exactly looking as Chimey Bleu. Hints of citrus, nuts and some outhose in the aroma. Taste is very sweet, smooth, somewhat fruity, with a yeasty finish with some nuts or raisins ... nice stuff

I was very excited to drink this since I had very high expectations, especially considering the $11 price tag. But, it was most certainly worth it. All the work that went into brewing this beer paid off tremendously. Absolutly smooth and delicious... everything blends together perfectly. There is a bit of warming, but the 10% alcohol suprised me since it is hidden so well. Yes, it is expensive as hell, but give it a shot. It is well worth it.

Indra (2616) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Engaging aroma, full of sweet malt and doughy, estery yeast with notes of turbinado sugar, banana, pineapple, tangerine, plum, clove, coriander, anise and faint, peppery alcohol. Highly attractive deep, cloudy garnet color, topped with a lasting, voluminous, frothy off-white head and abundant lacing. Flavor profile is similarly intriguing, beginning with a burst of lightly tart tropical fruitiness, turning spicy and toasty with a long, sweet, toffeeish and mildly grainy finish that eventually gives way to hints of milk chocolate. Downy soft, effervescent palate with a deceptively full body. Balance and complexity are both impressive in their depth. I found it reminiscent of Unibroue’s La Terrible, which I also very much enjoyed.

This beer was sampled at the San Diego Real Ale Festival courtesy of the great Dr. Bill. This beer poors a cornicopia of colors with a light red/orange mix with hints of yellow thrown into a cloudy mix. The head was thick and voluptuous...a big frothy white mound that refused to subside.. a great looking beer. The aroma was a lot of bananas with lemons and grapefruit in there as well. Hints of malt, though well hidden and a touch of alcohol. The flavor yields absolutely NO alcohol presence which is very scary given that this is 10% ABV. Banana and cloves are all over this beer with a wonderful countering sweet finish. A tad bit of roast and heavy fruit spices finish this dry ending. Hints of ginger and nectar in the finish..very complex and very good. A good amount of carbonation...very well rounded beer!

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2004 yum. Finally had this bottle from Beers of the World. Pours a wonderful dark mahogany brown, with a good beige head. Lacing and lots of lively carbonation compliments of the bottle conditioning. Looks the part so far. Aroma gives off lots of alcohol, figs, dark prunes, some light chocolate, with an ample amount of yeast. Flavor is truly great. Perfect balance of malt, yeast and hops. Lightly acidic, hardly any astringency, not overly sweet or bitter, just wonderfully complex. Figs, raisins, earthy barley, cola, pepper. Lots of dry nuttiness. Great stuff, maybe a bit too much spice on the finish, but still wonderful. Medium-full to full bodied, lively carbonation.

Orange gold color. Large white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Medium to full-bodied quad. Malts are fruity and sweet. Dark fruits. Touches of spice and herbs. Brown sugar and molasses. Very smooth tasting. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is very full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Bottle: Pours with a large tan head, very nice. Hazy ruby/amber in color. Smells like yeast, spice, bread, wood, butter, and candy. Taste is not quite as complex and great as the aroma, but still very good with notes of sweet malt, spice (pepper, cinamon, clove), fruit, and some alcohol at the end. I think I’ll grab another bottle of this and age it.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pours a lightly hazy red-orange color, and is topped by a tan head. There is a spicy, yeasty, and bready aroma that is complimented by notes of caramel and toasted biscuits. Upon first taste, I think that this is a nice full flavored beer. It is sweet up front with an off dry finish. It tastes of cinnamon and has a bit of astringency in the finish. Up front this tastes of caramel, fresh bread, a bit of orange, and honey. This is so smooth, and oh so drinkable (it is a dangerous combination). I definitely like this, though it could perhaps use a bit more of the bottle-advertised hops.
