Bottle - Cloudy rouge colour, fluffy head with an alcohol aroma tainted with fruit and hops, there is an alcohol hit on the tongue with a fruity and brandy aftertaste, nice beer, strong, so drink sparingly ;-)

Aroma allergies ect... Dark brown with a Duvel esque head. Almost opaque and few bubbles. Semi-sweet chocolate taste. Alittle too sweet but not undrinkable. And the nice smooth chocolate taste more than makes up for it (putting it well above average). Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Good good brew.

Draft @ Statelineliquors last belgian tasting. Large tan head, retention is very good, sticky, webby lacing that lasts. Clear brown, red hued ale. Nose is fruity, lightly spicey and malty. Body is med/full, creamy on the palate, soft carbonation. Nice spicey flavors followed by lightly sweet caramelly notes and some dark fruits, raisins and a hint of plum and faint chocolatey notes to boot. Finish is kinda sweet, fruity and lasting. Nice brew, 10.5 % ? never would of guessed! Thanks Roberrrrrrt!

12 oz bottle purchased from Andersonville Wine and Spirits. Pours a dark brown amber with a beige head ... i was expecting something a little more ... gulden. Complex malty nose, brown sugar, citrus, toffee, yeast, dried fruit, and alcohol. Similar sweet flavors with fruit and toffee dominating. The alcohol and phenols from it are very present, too much so for my liking. A little overcarbonated. But overall I was surprised by this beer I’ve passed up so many times.

Cloudy, deep amber color, nice fluffy head. Smells very sweet and fruity, I can’t detect much of a hop presense with my nose. A very nice beer, malty and sweet fruit tastes to start, finished a little dry, almost like wine, probably because of that ABV.
