750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, dark fruits, some caramel malts with hints of toffee, and a light bitterness. Flavor a nice blend of everything. Average to smooth texture. A decent American interpretation of this style.

2012 bottle. Dark, primer red without much head. Sweet, malty nose with lots of caramel. Taste is similar; thick and syrupy. Kind of flat. Nothing special.

This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy brown colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-transparent cola brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was spicy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of old ale sweet and spices. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

I was really into this. Had a great gravity level with well hidden alcohol, brown sugar, clove, banana and earthy, woody notes on taste. Has a great mouth feel, very viscous and balanced. Loved it.

#3068 / 3240 2012 vintage. Nose is sweet. Taste is sweet also. Fruit and maple palate. Boozy aftertaste and finish is brown sugar. Decent sipper but no need to buy again

Happy I didn’t fork out the 15 or so bucks for this one. IT is a bit like a quad, bit like a dubbel, really nothing special though.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Gold Foil Capped 750 ml 2011 Bottle #755/1800. Mahogany colored in appearance with a substantial cap of tan foam. Lots of caramel, figs, prunes and molasses in the aroma as well as some yeast funk around the edges. The taste is loaded up front with notes of brown sugar, raisins, dates and black cherries in addition to some vanilla, maple and allspice notes toward the end. The body is thick and creamy with moderate carbonation while the finish serves up a final dose of malt, dark fruits and booze. Overall, a quality holiday sipping beer that tastes something like a Belgian Strong Dark Ale crossed with a Barley Wine.
