I had this on tap at Beachwood BBQ’s Italian Beer Festival. This reddish-amber pour has some orange and plum notes.

Sanguine muddy brown slosh with bitter sweet almost orange taste. Very complex and delicious. Rated 7/6/09

On tap at Rustico’s, Alexandria. Dark brown pour, ruby highlights, light tan head. Nose is cherry, alcohol, and malt. Initial flavor is cherry hard candy and sweet malt. Not very balanced. Liquer-like. Nice try, but there are a lot of better Belgian Strongs out there, for a lot less dough.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2010
On tap at Church Key DC: Transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing covering of off-white head. Sweet biscuity pale malty nose has some floral orange peel notes. Starts with good fullness and sweet pale maltiness with some bitter orange rind spice before a slightly warming bittersweet finish. Pretty complex, yet drinkable.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle from Smith’s. Pours turbid dark brown with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, Wheaties, hops, and brown sugar. Tastes caramel malty, with syrupy caramel notes, ESBish flavors including tannins and nuts, some brown sugar, and slight funk. Very well hidden alcohol, as this one doesn’t seem a lick over the BMC upper limit of 3% ABV.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Tap at Churchkey. Clear reddish maroon, edge bubbles. Aroma of wood, furniture polish and citrus. Taste is very acidic and bitter, herbal overtones. Interesting but rough.

simoneopazz (148) - , ITALY - FEB 6, 2010
rosso scuro con uno splendito cappello bianchissimo,compatto e persistente. l’odore di agrume riempie il naso,ma poi finisce li,risulta troppo frizzantina e forse troppo poco equilibrata rispetto all’alta gradazione che ha.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Tap at The Diamond. Poured a cloudy dark amber witha thin bubbly head. Nose was interesting. Grapes, sour grapes, candied sugars and??? First flavor impression is grape bubblegum. But Ina good way. Yes, it’s sweet, but there is a certain balance that makes me say wow this is good!! Has kind of a musty sweet finish. Not an everyday beer, but a beer to try for sure.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
From a magnum at Beer Table. Deep amber-orange pour. The nose is really lovely with a bright herbal/spicy nose. Fruity with a bit of cherry and strawberry. There is a really nice lightness to the aroma and some unusual fruitness. A bit of gooseberry and kiwi. The malts have a lightly grassy/grainy quality. A touch of soft spiciness toward the back of the palate. Fairly unique character with a bit of a floral character. Rose, orange and a bit of light yeastiness. The back finishes with a kiss of lactic tartness. Really subtle, complex and unique brew.

all’olfatto è poco percettibile abbastanza equlibrata,ma poco persistente. mi aspettavo di meglio.
