Poured from bottle, pours a hazy golden with nice white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma is of cardamon mixed in with some citrus and hops, the flavor is smooth and nice with a fruity, spicey and some hops in the finish, interesting.

Classic strong ale, blond very slightly hazy, nice head but not much lacing, certainly alcoholic and light fruity and citric notes from the yeast

Very interesting beer. Can taste the belgian funk. Finishes with an intense sweetness that is definitely different.

Not sure Iíd call this a Belgian strong ale...itís kind of itís own thing, like several DFH beers. Taken on itís own, definitely has the spice aroma. The taste is surprisingly pleasant (for me - I am not a Belgian fan) The spices dominate, cardamom especially. Thereís a hint of bitter and a sweetness that compliments the spices. Glad I tried it (I pretty much try anything that 3F is involved with), but not something Iíll repeat.

Iíve bought every Dogfish beer since Iíve started out, so despite my misgivings over it being spiced (not a fan of spiced ales). Plus the beer guy at the store told told me it wasnít heavily spiced. So, the beer poured clear yellow. The first whiff told me the beer guy lied. Heavy spicing, ginger and cardamum present. The sweetness was almost enough to compensate. I just donít like the style. Meh.

On tap at the brewpub. Mouth tasted like a lot of rye. Sweet, sharp, and some barrell mellowness.

Draft at DFH with Andrew. Pours a bright clear yellow body. Aroma is sweet Belgian CA dying and sugary malts. Mouthfeel is sticky with flavors of sweet oak, malts, candy.

Golden with mild orange hue. White head that dissipates rather quickly. Like others have already stated cardamom is the primary aroma, some clove, yeast as well. Ginger-like cardamom flavor that is pretty sweet. Not bad when you start, but tends to become more apparent and a bit overpowering after sipping on it awhile. Alcohol is noticeable only on the way down with a decent warmth. Didnít pick up much on the brandy barrelling flavor or aroma. Altogether good for something different.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2010 On tap at FFF; pours a very clear light golden with very modest white head around the edges. Aroma is primarily cardamom, and it reminds me of a Christmas beer in a sense. Flavors confirm this; the cardamom dominates the flavors and id probably call this one unbalanced but still pleasant - unless you look at it as a Christmas style - in that case itís a winner for me. Brandy barrel flavors are subdued; you can feel the spice note on the tip of your tongue. Ester and Belgian sugars come through, and the finish is quite dry.

Tap: Clean golden hue with a lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma is quite spicy with heavy cardamom, white pepper, and ginger like vapours along with some biscuity and pils malts, slight Belgian clear candi sugar and Belgian yeast tones, hint of vanilla and tangerine liquors, charred oak as well. The taste follows suit with sugary and sweet malts fighting off an avalanche of spices and losing. Some candied orange peel and twangy Belgian saison like twang. The finish is slightly oaky and charred with some leathery earthy tones, alcohol while apparent is not overpowering. The mouth feel is ashy and grainy dry, honestly not very refreshing, moderate warming, tannic, and slick. Overall, an interesting effort that is simply to muddled and overspiced. I do like the Belgian character when it is free to show itís face. I am glad to try on tap and therefore avoided buying any bottles.
