UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 Draft at Blues, Brews and BBQ festival. Pours nut brown with some nice off-white head. Aroma of roasty nuts and caramel. Taste is the same. Medium body with a thick creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. Iíd gladly drink this again.

Crown Valley Big Bison Ale has a thick, fizzy, cream-colored head, a murky, lighter, reddish-brown appearance, but with a brilliance, when the sunlight catches it, a thin lace sheeting, and racing bubble streams. The aroma is of rich, sweet, fruity, bread crust, some booze, brandy, and rock candy. Taste is of all those elements, with specifically fig, caramalized syrup, and a noticeable, but not harsh, bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Crown Valley Big Bison Ale finishes semi-dry, dessert-like, and sip-able. Overall, this is a most excellent beer and another winner from the brewery. RJT

Pours a nice clear amber with a bit of almond head. Aroma is strong and fruity with some sweet caramel notes. Plums and honey. I actually ended up just smelling this one for a good 5 minutes before I took a sip. The taste of this beer does not betray the aroma at all. This is a very sweet beer with many dark fruit notes. The sweetness tends to stick to the palate almost like a fig newton. This is a good beer but I donít think I would be able to drink more than two of them because they are very sweet.

A very good dubbel. Pours a fantastic amber red with a thick tan head. Not too much smell, a little bit of berries. Taste is great, quite malty, with banana and vanilla, and some plum. Refreshing finish. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1443) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle- Pours a nice clear amber color with a nice off-white head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit including plum and raisin with a trace of spice. Also some roasted malt and hint of caramel sweetness. Flavor of plum and dark fruits. There is a bit of caramel sweetness and touch of spice. Medium body, smooth with a rich feel. There is a nice warming effect that goes well with the winter season. Interesting beer from a small regional brewer.

Very drinkable, I quite enjoyed this one. Not much aroma, but I was pleased with the taste. Received a few bottles as a gift.

Pour is a dark amber with a large tan head. Aroma is dark fruit with a helping of brown sugar. Flavor is lots of candi sugar and toffee with some more fruityness toward the end. Finish leaves a little roasted malt behind. Iím not sure about this being a dubble but its a decent Belgian ale made here in Missouri.
