hobsch (418) - Cologne, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle 0.75l. Pours hazy amber brown with a solid off white head. Aroma is earthy, dried fruit, raisins. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, slightly sour, wood, dried fruit, molasses. Aftertaste is quite sweet but balanced. Alcohol is well hidden, carbonation is soft. Less sugar and alcohol would make this beer even better. Still very good.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
A extremely pleasant brew overall. Pours a dark murky brown with a huge tan head that fills the whole glass. The nose is bright and fruity with hints of raisin, plum and cherries. Big toffee and molasses malt notes with bread and dessert like malt sweetness. Fruity mid palate with a raisin note and a smidge of spice. The finish is warm and heavy with toffee and caramel sweet notes. overall a great brew.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle to goblet. Hazy mahoganybody with a thick, off white head. Nose doesn’t have any real strong aromas. Just a bit earthy and nutty. Taste though is really funky with a nutty body with a funky barnyard finish. Dry hay finish.

Thisis12ptfont (824) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Aroma of sweet honey malts, white wine and tart grapes. Appears a smokey, ruby red color. Taste is sharp honey and a sweet white wine note with a slight port characteristic. Fruity overtones and pretty watery. Not very enjoyable.

KyotoLefty (6174) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle from ABC. Dark brown, cloudy, with lace. Nose of caramel, cocolate, earthy, like a typical traditional Special Belge but way ramped up. Same with the flavor, earthy caramel maltiness with raisins and plum. This works. Rich and tasty.

Taste: Low sweetness, medium sourness and medium/high bitterness. Fruit and vinous notes. Palate: Thin smooth texture and light/medium body, astringent, prickly carbonation with an abrupt dry vinous and fruity finish. Comments: Enjoyable but not fantastic. Left a glass lace.

Magnum to snifter (shared with jmborggren, the Mrs., and others). Looks good for the style; a cloudy dark orange with fluffy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Lively carbonation as well. Smells of Belgian yeast and sweet dark fruit malt. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
