UPDATED: JAN 1, 2006 Deep dark orange with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet, alcoholic and very fruity (duh what’s it called) with a nice dried fruit taste and a toffee-ish finish.

Reddish brown. Unclear. Beige - almost golden - head. tall and lasting. Yeasty sweet aroma. Very malty sweet flavour. Elements of underlying sourness. Traces of roasted malts. A bit hops in the finish. Perfumy? Watery palate. Hides the ABV very well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty, estery aroma, sweet and spicy with notes of orange, honey, pepper, coriander, clove, banana, licorice, dried flowers, vanilla, brown sugar and very faint wisps of alcohol. Hazy medium-dark red-amber color, seeming to glow from within, with a fine, slight off-white head. Flavor is sweet, sugary and very fruity and citric, with a spicy, floral, lightly alcoholic and musty finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and gently warming, body is full and rich. Highly flavorful. Enjoyable.

Looks like they pulled this straight out of a drained swamp. A primordial looking beer from the murky depths. Great aroma and citrus taste. Nevertheless I find it hard to be convinced by this. Probably the alocohol content which puts me off.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber-brown. Nose is sugary and yeasty, some spice to it, quite assertive and interesting with dark fruit, some cola sweetnes, really, really nice. Flavor is a big letdown, watery and a bit soapy, washes out the yeast and spice. Little flat. Forbidding this one seems like a bit of overkill, frankly.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky orange brown body with a foamy light tan head. The aroma is yeast and some spice, cloves and citrus. Flavor is straight forward sweet sugary belgian strong. The yeast profile is rather strong and detracts a bit. Towards the end some hop bitterness shows up. Body is mediium and fairly carbonated. Not bad, not great.

Nice dark orange colour, lasting foam, a bit bitter at first, but second and third tasting bring about interesting flavours and aromas. Not the greatest beer I’ve triaed, but definitely worth trying.
