Aroma is a collage of sweet fruits and malts. Cloudy brown with a large (two fingers thick) but mostly fading head. Flavor is very malty in the fore with some almost chalky peanut skin flavors int he middle. Quite nutty flavors are present in fact with a perfect compliment of darker fruits like raisins and especially dates. I’m at a loss as to why this is only a 51 overall. I found it to be quite flavorful and appealing if just a bit narrow in the flavor range.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Murky prune brown body, medium but dissipating off-white head. Aroma loaded with prune and caramel with chocolate notes, heavy and full with slight tartness. Chocolatey, bready body with prunes and earth, somewhat bitter, leafy finish. Heavy, dense body, but little alcohol presence. This isn’t half bad.

Ernest (7211) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with light notes of vanilla, honey, and raisin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A quaffer, but not that interesting.

Matt shared this. The beer pours to a deep red body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is nutty with toasted malts and hints of cola. The flavor is toasty wheat/barley malts with some walnuts. Some Belgian yeasts. The palate is medium bodied and creamy with a good feel.

This is a tasty beer that basically reminded me of a watery version of St. Bernardus Prior(8). If it was a bit cheaper I’d buy it as a regular. Nice.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2005
I had this at my first tasting! The beer pours a hazy dark brown with an average, white head. The aroma is strong and full of burnt sugar, raisin, honey and molasses. The flavor is sweet and intesifies the raisin and brown sugar aromas. The palate is velvety and had lively carbonation. This wasn’t a terribly complex beer, but not bad.

Bottle poured a clear brown with a small amber head. Aromas of molasses, brown sugar and abit of maple. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of roasted malt, brown sugar, and a hint of smoke with a dry finish.

Very dark brown with a tiny white head. Very nice, dry aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Flavor somewhat sweeter with caramel, coffee and roasted malts.

Bottled. Ruby red colour, small beige head. Sweet caramel, plum and malt in aroma. Plum, dryness, paper and malt in flavour. Not as sweet as many other bruins, nice one in that way. A bit boring in length though.
