[Bottle from Rob in Hesselager.] Nutty amber look with a nice yeasty and fruity aroma. Flavor is like a red or rouge in the flamish/french way. Fullbodied, malty, honey, alcohol, berries and warmy. Recommendly!

A slightly hazy mahogany body with a small & persistent head. Fruity & yeasty on the nose - plums, cherry, candy sugar, raisins, alcohol. Sweet and yeasty taste, somewhat crude, with strong cherry & caramel. Alcohol and yeastiness on the finish. Medium/thick mouthfeel. Not bad, but crude and a bit boring..

Wow, indeed a big boy. Aromas of caramel and dark fruit. Sweet, candyish, spicy taste moving into a boozy and bittering ending. Good and heavy.

The commercial description says a "soft, light brown ale." Are you joking? This is a big boy, a bedtime beer. Pours a deep, dark reddish-brown with an off-white head that starts big but quickly fades to a thin film. Somewhat vinous but sweet aroma of dark fruits and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and raisiny, spicy, with some booze in there and a dark-malty aftertaste. Reminds me that alcohol can be a legitimate flavor, even if the beer is a touch out of balance. A tasty one that has more complexity than many other strong, sweet Belgians.

Nice mahogany-red color and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of dried, dark fruit, coriander and a light sweetness. The flavour is sweetish with notes of raisin, grapefruit, coriander and a light bitter finish with even more grapefruit. 2251

From my notes 6/3/2007 pours a one-finger light tan head that fades quickly to a ring leaving some lace. Deep mahogany color. Sweet malty nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is a mellow caramel, clean finish. On-tap €3.00 ($4.11) for a 330ml glass from Brasserie Le Fiacret Brussels, Belgium.

Amber with a red hew and a off white head. crystal malts & slight sweet nutty caramel. Smooth body and good lacing. Slight fruity tones. Drinkable with a warking alcohol feel but overall im not impressed!
