Chesnut brown with a thick head. Malty aroma some alcohol as well, belgian yeast. The flavour follows suit with the aroma. Not a bad belgian strong ale.

Cool bottle. I like their commercial description, so I’ll go with that. I’ll add that the one chink is the carbonation, but its intensity doesn’t diminish the true enjoyment you get when sipping this puppy. Besides I have always loved dragons....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crazy white but shaped like Duvel bottle. Pours a cloudy coffee brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Smells like, well, a Belgian (orchard fruit, rotten malt), but with a bit of caramel. Tastes like a Belgian, again, with a bit of caramel. Doesn’t really feel like a Belgian though, thinner and with more carbonation than usual. Aftertaste is like a Belgian too. Am I the only one that is getting tired of plain Jane Belgian beers. I mean they are all well made and good, but man, they are all really starting to taste the same to me. I think I need a Belgian break.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark opaque brown with huge fluffy tan head. Aroma is spicy and slightly sourdough bready. Bit of grape soda in the taste, owing in part to the vigorous carbonation. $3.50/11.2oz

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle - Belgian sampler. Got out my fluted glass for this one. Smells like french toast - nice. Deep mahogany color with tan, persistent head. I taste raisin, cocoa, vanilla, fig, brown sugar, and, of course, alcohol. Mellowed nicely as it warmed, and finished amazingly well. Another great Belgian ale.

0,75l bottle at Kaisla, Helsinki. The aroma is simply fantastic. A fresh citrusy, zesty feeling with some darker tones like plum. The colour is dark brown, with medium head. The taste is absolutely superb, a tingling mix of orange and even some smoke! Wow!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The good people at Sam’s said this was a good dessert beer, although it’s nowhere near as sweet, or by contrast bitter, as I expected. Nice brown color with a sprightly head, it’s hard to figure out all the flavors before the secondary alcohol taste hits. You can tell there’s a lot of tasty things going on in this beer, but maybe if the alcohol content wasn’t so high and prevailant it might be easier to track...though that might defeat the purpose. Sort of a hung jury on this one.

Very dark brown in colour. Bittesweet taste. A lot going on in this beer, I wouldn’t know where to start in describing the aroma and taste. Mocha. figs, honey, toffee, etc. Try it if yo you can find it. I love the bottle too!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky brown color with a quickly receding head-good lacing though.All I can say is wow! Sweet but not overly so. Fruity, malty, some butterscotch and toffee as well. Packs quite a punch at 10.5 ABV. Excellent.
