Halleluja.

CanIHave4Beers (3307) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a small head that goes away fairly bit of ease.

The aroma is molasses and cinnamon up front. Some brown sugar, pear and fruit cake show more prominently as it warms.

The flavor is spicy and sweet, but not over-sweet... really. Rich flavors of molasses and dark fruit along with brighter cherry and pear fruit notes. The more it warms the more the soft nuttiness comes through, which is really really nice.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Poured a bit too cold into my teku. dark brown body and a minimal tan head that laces a bit. Let it warm up and the aromas started open up. Sweet fruits, raisin/fig and brown sugar, finishing off with some yeast. Hits sweet, roasted malts round out the body. Medium carbonation, relatively thin mouthfeel. Enjoyable beer, Id definitely drink more but its a little pricey, even for Evil Twin.

I drink a ton of Belgian darks. this one was good but not worth what I paid for the small bottle. I know its an import but, Ive paid a lot less for other imports that were better

MOARBEER (92) - BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle: Pours dark brown with tiny beige head thats gone in no time. Aroma is sweet, malty. Taste is also sweet, malt, caramel, liquorice and some vine? Overall a pretty decent beer but doesnt live up to the great name.

mcberko (6560) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with an amber tinge and a medium beige head. Aroma is fairly sugary, with dark fruits, brown sugar and Belgium yeast. Flavour is very similar, with brown sugar, some dark fruits and Belgium yeast all equally characterizing the taste. Despite the name of the beer, the sugary qualities are not cloying, nor out of whack. Finishes on dark fruit and sugary brown sugar notes. Medium complexity with lots of depth. Very enjoyable.

Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, dried fruit, sweetness, licorice, yeast and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. The palaye is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer.

Another stellar beer from this place. I loved the blend of candy sugar, bread, caramel and spice. This one really sat well with me. I love Belgian Strongs.

500mL bottle, no date for $12.99 at Olive Tree Market in OB. Clear dark reddish brown with a small beige head, fading to a ring rather quickly. Belgian yeast and ripe dark fruit (figs mainly) and molasses brown sugar notes up front in the nose--pretty malty and sweet. Light toasty malts are also present. The flavor adds some decaying leaves, and with it, a very slight tinge of something tangy. Still, quite sweet. The alcohol, though not all that strong, does help drying the beer out a bit, as well as some light roast char that doesnt become apparent until the semi-dry finish. Bitterness peaked at a 2-3. Low carbonation with a big full body. This wasnt too bad, but for the price, it sure was. Id give it a 3 if the price factored in my rating, but this time, it wont.

luttonm (2223) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle at SIBF. Red cola brown, minor head. Sweet brown sugar and rum. Heary aged feel, cola, tobacco, sugar cane. Aged dark rum. Bit off on feel. good, tart finish.

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle at SIBF. Pours a cola brown. Rum and raw sugar on the nose. Boozy sweet flavor, with some wood, a good amount of rum, and dark fruit. It has a bit of a harsh palate, though -- somewhat tinny. This was a bit of a disappointment.
