This copper-colored ale is crafted with roasted malts, Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich caramel flavor and a smooth toffee finish.

BVery (8686) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a large initial head that fades to a slightly cream colored ring. Aroma is caramel malt and sugar. Medium palate. Taste is quite sweet - notes of dark fruit/plum, some candied sugar, and caramel malt. Really not too bad, especially coming from Coors. Pleasantly surprised.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark old-penny copper, mahogany highlights. Very low aroma of husky, lightly toasty caramel. Flavour profile is much the same-- very simple, and entirely malt driven. This could just as easily be a "light" doppelbock or scottish ale. There is no yeast character here, there is no spiciness, there are no fruity esters. How is this in any way a "Belgian ale"? FAIL.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2010
Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger. Couleur ambre, mousse beige. Note malt caramel, avec intonations de levure belge, profile reste plus malt que anticipe pour un style abbaye, peut être l’aspect hiver? Note de caramel, levure, sucre brun et qcq fruits avec une fine couche d’amertume. Pas mauvaise, mais un peu bordélique comme bière surtout dans le style.

Pours see-through brown with a thick beige head and a light brown sugar aroma. There is a medium-bodied toffee flavor with a slightly bitter finish.

"toffee, malt and spice is about it. none of the robust dark fruit aspects i like in the style. this one started about average, but i lost interest in finishing before the end."

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2010
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours amber with tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramel, apple and chocolate chip cookie. Pretty nice. The taste is smooth with apples, caramel and muted cherry to midway. It seems to stay that way leanining toward smooth blended dark fruitiness into the finish.

12 ounce beer from Dans. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small white head. A sweet light spicy nose. The flavor is a smooth light fruitiness, some sweet malt and caramel. Watery, decent. Wait, 5.6%? We can only see 4% and below in grocery stores. Hmmmm.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small to medium off white head. The aroma has some caramel, belgian sugar, mild spice, yeast and a grassy note to top things off. The flavor was weak overall with only mild caramel malt, spices and light candi sugar. This is about what I expected.

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottled. Poured light-medium reddish-brown with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel, molasses, and candi sugar with accents of fruity yeast and dank wheat. The flavor found tart fruity notes on the tip of the tongue, with sweet caramel, candi sugar, and wheat following.. spicy, tangy finish with too much tacky residual sweetness. Lighter-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. smooth middle, but tangy and rough at odd times.. drinkable, but not very good.
