I seem to have liked this beer more than others. The beer had a unique tingle when it hit the tongue. It had that sweet and thick flavor without being viscous. Great jog of having flavor without filling up my stomach.

Bottle. Poured clear brown with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet hoppy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet malty flavor with a medium smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met for 1900.

Wrongly guessed that this would be a belgian triple when I ordered it by name only. I was surprised but not unhappy with the beer. It is not really strong or "powerful". It is an easy drinking beer that doesn’t offend, smoothly delivering a decent, maybe overly sweet, malt character balanced reasonably by hop bitterness.

Bottle, nice dark beer, you can definetly smell the fruit and sweetness of this beer. it is a little bit bitter for me, not like hop bitter but something else, not quit sure. Overall pretty good, but it is not as smooth as i would like.

Bottle...pours a dark amber color...minimal tannish head. Fruity malt nose...sweet, wow basically overly sweet malt flavor, maybe some caramelish toffee notes in there. Nahh, this ain’t getting it done. It says "A powerful smooth strong ale...". Don’t believe it for a second. I’d believe a powerfully fruity sloppy mess, but that’s about it. Thin and crappy. Don’t waste your time on this.

Bottle, 5.3%. Slightly spicy aroma, some sewer. Clear dark chestnut colour. Acidic flavour, but nicely malty. Roasted aftertaste.

Poured a maple brown with a white head from the bottle. Initial aroma was sugary sweet and malty. Taste was surprisingly pleasant, roasted malt, brown sugar, a little bit of orange citrus. Finish is clean, not at all bitter. I can’t imagine anyone would dislike this beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Dark amber with minimal head. Aroma has some nuts, dark malts and a touch of spice. The flavour is malty but otherwise pretty thin. Some sweetness to strat and a drier bland finish.

Completely clear brown pour with no real head to speak of - aroma of roasted nuts and caramel - light fruity esters, some cocoa and hazelnut in the flavor - kind of a bready, yeasty finish - decent - if it weren’t filtered and pasturized it would probably be a lot better.

Dark mahogany-brown body, with only a small head. Noteably low in alcohol. Musty, putrid aroma- very malty, but no real defining characteristics. Thin body with simply caramel and malts, no complexity at all. Sour, sweet finish.
