Bottled. Hazy amber color with faint head. The yeast in the bottom is very easily disturbed. Spicy and musty aroma with notes of green apple and perhaps acetone. Sweetish flavor with plum, green apple and apple skin. This bottle is is old and off.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 (rated 21.07.05) Drinking this beer is the equivalent to cozying up to a warm fire in a British winter. Nice amber color, though the abundant yummies swimming about make it look a bit dingey. Rich, deep aroma that smacks of spiced rum. Undeniably strong smell of alcohol - not for the faint hearted. Pour this thick juice down slowly and let the flavours release all over your thirsty tongue. A spicy mixture of maple syrup, brown sugar, raisin and oddly, grapefruit. It stays with you for some time - definitely a slow drinker. A naughty pleasure.

thanks to ’da skunk’ for this one
It pours an opaque dark gold color with a large head. The flavor is very apple cider sweet w/ some winey notes and a tangy finish.

Bottled - Criterion Leicester. A reddy amber coloured beer with a smallish tan coloured head. The aroma is spicy and fruity with a hint of apple. Also yeast in the aroma. The taste is nice and fruity with candy sugars and yeast notes. A good clean Belgian.

Well clouded, yeasties invaded yellow-maroon color, growing a mostly staying off-white belgian head. Estery nature is vibrant, enjoying peach, orange, banana and mango influences over a thick, sweet malt base that avoids syrupyness thanks to a strong carbonation. Otherwise, it mingles through biscuity toffee laden layers of flavors, coated by whiffs of tart sourdough breadiness and riesling auslese juicy fruitiness. Strong cerealic suggestions I’ve come to associate with Ellezelloise yeast, particularly potent in Hercules. Pretty good, nicely rounded ale with strong artisanal character from the yeast, but sweet and a bit strong on the alcohol despite drying attempts toward the end, maybe it’s hoppier in Belgium, but this was bought pretty recently at Table & Vine.

(on bottle)tan color, medium, white, lasting head. Has alot of malts and creamy aromas to, kind of light, considering the heavy alcoholic taste, OMG. a very nice drink, but way too dominated by the alcohol for me.
