Pours a cloudy darkbrown beer, with some large chunks in it. Beige rocky head that disappears rather quickly. A lot of carbonisation in the glass. In the nose sweet malts, caramel, coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeeling is round, full and warm body. Taste is full malty, even fruity with a little sour touch. Somewhat caramel as well, but not as much as you would think by the aroma. Aftertaste is freshly sour and malty with red fruits and berries. A very interesting and well crafted beer. It’s been 7 years since I visited the brewery and drunk the beer, should be doing this some more!

Bottled. A lovely aroma of raisins and other winter spicy fruit. The colour is a very dark brown but the head which is there on first pouring quickly dissipates. The taste is every bit as full and satisfying as Westmalle Dubbel - indeed I guess it is the low alcohol only which stops this being categorised as a Dubbel. There is winter fruit, licorice and a nice alcohol warming. A very pleasant beer from a good brewer.

(330 ml bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julio’s Liquors) Basically delicious...Pours somewhat murky dark brown with one finger of soft-ish looking tan head. Head recedes to a thin, lasting layer. Aroma is big and malty - brown sugar, prunes, raisins and molasses. Mouthfeel is fairly smooth, pretty soft, with some heft and body, but no stickiness. Flavor is excellent, alot like a good doppelbock - big heaps of brown sugar, molasses, prune and raisin with a touch of doppel-like smokiness, like a Spaten Optimator. Very, very good - don’t understand the low score for this one.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle into Trappist glass. An opaque dark brown beer with a reddish tinge and a decent sized creamy tan head providing good lacing. The nose is burnt brown sugar, cherries, plums, and light Belgian yeasts. The flavour is restrained fruity sweet dark malts with a gentle smoky spicy finish. The sweetness is just right. A top quality bruin ale.

JanEric (978) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2011
Dark brown, small creamy head. Aroma is complex, full, malty, more like a porter., with chcoloate, caramel, coffee and a bit of cinnamon. Taste is reasonable bitter, also with chocolate, espresso. Medium bodied wit a nice finish. or me it’s a surprisingly brown beer.

11.2 oz bottle. It is different than the one pictured here. It pours a dark, dark blackish brown with a dark red raspberry hue when held to light. Th head is big, foamy and off-white and produces some decent lacing as it recedes. The smell is super fruity and yeasty. It is predominately tart cherries and dark dried fruits like raisins and dates. It also has some caramel, sugar, and dark bread. Teh flavor is interesting. It is very earthy and spicy with even a bitter hop note. It has a very medicinal and herbal flavor with a slight hint of caramel sweetness. Some malted barley comes in on the finish. It isn’t bitter, but it isn’t sweet. It is just a very herbal and satisfying brew. It is a creamy brew and goes down pretty easy. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-14-2011 00:50:31

rarbring (1247) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: A rather weak smell, porridge with nuts and apples, some dust.
Appearance: The brew is dusky brown with red nuances, a warm off-white head leaving little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting with brown bread, then forest fruits, blackberry, a small bitter grape-fruit peel finish.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, a fresh texture, good body and a lighty dry finish.
Overall: A malty yummy beer, goes very well with robust food.
Note: On-tap at Akkurat. Reviewed 2012-04-24.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2004
(Bottled) Very dark, hazy reddish brown color with a large, tight, tanned head. Very malty, sweetish oatmeal-porridge aroma with some raisins and plums. Very malty, slightly sweet flavor, well balanced with a quite high bitterness. Softly bitter, sweetish-malty aftertaste. Medium to full-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. Not very complex, but enjoyable, good-looking and well-balanced bruin.

(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, 20 Oct) Very dark brown colour, almost mahogany, with foamy pale brown head. Lots of dark fruit in the nose, soft notes of chocolate, cocoa and coffee as well. Malty, slightly roasted, taste with smooth coffee notes, dark chocolate, cocoa and wild berries (blackberries, cherries). Very nice bruin.
