Really a terrific beer! very complex flavor with a sweetly high alcohol content that adds a very unique level of complexity.. smooth palate. great aroma. sweet but restrained to perfection. definitely recomended

Huge rocky off-white head. Nice caramel color more golden at the base of the glass. Medium size particles. Sweet fruity aroma of roasted grains and berries. Light to medium body. Sweet taste of honey with hints of cinnamon, cammomille, pineaple and spices. Liquory texture.I had high expectations on this one and I don’t feel quite satisfied :(.

330 ml bottle in Ravenna, Italy. Has a roasted malty aroma, and I know it sounds weird but a slight yeasty cheese smell. This one has a great body with an almost bourbon like taste. The alchohol becomes more dominant in the finish, but overall great beer!

nice opague brown. not so nice head. real thick though. smells like a BSA. quite a bit of alcohol. lots of alcohol in taste. can’t identify the flavors, but very typical of style and very balanced. thick(ish)

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 Better than the Rouge. A good beer. But what does that mean? I haven’t tried enough of it to feel confident about my judgement. We’ll see, but I sense a Duvel style disappointment emerging.

Tried a fresh one - 2006 330ml bottle from the grog shop in Porirua. It’s still a great beer but not what it was only a few years ago. Will put some away to see how it ages. I now have some of each year 2000 - 2006. The 2000 (1500ml bottles) remains the best each time I have a vertical tasting of it.

One of the best tasting beers I have ever had, but sadly, it was WAY too over carbonated. Felt like I was drinking beer flavored champagne. Probably would be better after sitting a while, but it rtasted so good I just couldn’t let it sit.

Great beer with a small touch of alcohol in the aroma. Just enough alcohol to warm the senses and a wonderful taste to match.
