Growler sampled at Noog Four-0 5/31/08: Pours a transparent copper amber with a stringy-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel and biscuity Belgian malt with a nice yeasty character and light fruity esters. Body starts with good caramely malty flavor and body along with a doughy yeasty character and some fruity complexity with a touch of brown sugar toward the finish. A nice Belgian abbey ale.

Draft at Jack of the Wood. Dark ruby pour with ring of tan head. Sweet dark fruit aroma. Well hidden abv. Plums and sweet dark malts in the flavor. Damn good brew.

Drake (7948) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Served on draft as part of a sampler. I asked my server if this was a dubbel before tasting it, and she said "yes, it’s high in alcohol." Sigh. Pours a gold tinted brown. Thin head. Fair retention and good lacing. Aroma is toffee and nuts. Taste is toffee, nuts and earthy hops. Medium bodied.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Tasted at Noogfest 4.0 (2008). This Belgian Strong Ale pours a deep amber brown color from the growler. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, fruit and sweet. A medium bodied BSA. The malts are fruity and sweet, dark fruit plums and apples. Some other fruity esters as well. Nice beer. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

This one has a slight bit of apple and plum. Touch of caramel sweetness. Sampled from a growler at Noogfest.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, rich, mahogany-hued body with a small, ivory-colored head. Smell: Predominately fruity aroma smelling almost entirely and rather strongly of ripe plums with a minor backdrop of good wholesome alcohol. Taste: Again, it’s rather fruity, still with the plums and with a sugary sweetness. Light chocolate malt hint. Some warming booze. Finishes fruity with a sourish yeastiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability: It’s good! Different, yes, but good.

Suttree (4906) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Cloudy brown, no head. Aroma is pretty sweet - caramel and fruity, with notes of apple and pear. The flavor was a bit more dry and crisp, but still plenty of fruit and spice. Tasty stuff. Sampled from a growler at Noogfest 4.
