Had this on tap at the Sharp Edge for $4...pretty good buy. A dark rich brown color with a huge mocha colored head. I couldn’t smell it very well because of the smoke in the bar. Taste was actually very malty and had a lot of sour fruit notes in it. IT also had some sweet caramel flavors going to it. It was very thick and smooth...remarkably easy to drink.

Dark, hazy orangish-brown pour with a creamy full tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aromas with a touch of hoppiness. Full flavor with a strong alcohol presence that is welcomed in this particular instance. Finish is a little harsh at first, but a spicy raisin residue at the end is most enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 Re-Rate:
Pours a hazy dark brown/crimson color with a big beige and rocky head that diminishes very slowly and leaves a wonderful lacing and film.
Aroma is malty and yeasty with some alcoholic kick. It shows notes of vanilla and ripe fruits like apricots, peaches, strawberries and banana. There are also hints of caramel, molasses and brown sugar. Really delightful!.
Flavor is strong and sweet, being a mixture of a Quadrupel and a Tripel. Very fruity and sugary with touches of vanilla, banana, brown sugar, milk and caramel.
At times it’s a little cloying. Maybe it would benefit from aging. Spices come out nicely.
Thick rounded body with a smooth silky texture. Carbonation is rather low. Long alcoholic and sticky finish. Sweet and pleasant aftertaste. A rich and complex beer.

Bottle, 33cl. Dark brown beer, nicely carbonated with a beautiful tan head that lasts long. Aroma of caramel, malt and alcohol, almost like a whisky. Very strong alcohol flavour but everything very well balanced with the other flavours such as malt, spices and raisins. I enjoyed this one a lot.

Very spicy aroma, with cappers and citrics mixed with coffee and toasted touches, and soft alcohol. It has a full body with a nice dark caramel color. The head is beige, large and long-lasting.

1.14.06 A pretty bitchin’ Belgian brew. It’s good to have a solid Belgian strong now and then . How do they live? Brownish, white head. Spices and sweetness dominate the flava.

Pours dark brown color with lots of bubbles along the sides and a thin layer of manilla head. Aroma is sweet caramel, raisins, yeast, and spices. Aroma is sweet and raisiny, molases, and cloves. Has a viscous mouthfeel and a warming alcohol finish. Overall, pretty decent.

ice-tea colored with a medium white head, which laced well. Sweet aroma- carmel is what hit me. Sweet on the tounge, but not too sweet. some bitterness lingers in my mouth long after I’ve finished the beer. Flavor increases as the beer warms. A great beer, although it doesn’t distinguish itself from all the other belgians I’ve had recently

Pours dark coffee brown with a huge, thick foamy off-white head, long-lasting, and leaving nice lace. Aromas of sugar, malt, pepper, alcohol, yeast and floral hops. Wonderful flavor with tons of smoky, syrupy roast malt, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, maple syrup, herbal hops, dark ripe fruit, and a yeast. Thick chewy ale, solid full body, clingy aftertaste, nice sweet-bitter balance. Excellent creamy malty ale.
