Now this is my kind of Belgian Strong. Aroma was nice and sweet and the taste did not disappoint. Acquired from a trade, if I could get myself a 6-pack of this, I would. Nice smooth finish. I am not a huge Belgian fan, but this one hit the spot.

Dark amber, little to no head/lace. Sweet. Hardly a Belgian style. Weak. $1.79/12 oz @ Total Wine & More.

radagast83 (5071) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Well - a bit disappointing. Well, very disappointing. Perhaps an infection or poor handling - not sure - aroma is sour, but extremely sweet - overpowering. Smells a bit of infection - don’t know. No alcohol burn. Oh well.

cpetrone84 (1537) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Pours a hazy light copper color with a light tan head and fair amount of lace. The nose is extremely sweet, candied sugars galore, notes of peppery spice, sweet caramel, strong notes of alcohol with some citric orange and dried fruits. The flavor is much of the same, overly candied sugars and dried plums making it too sweet with some nice citric notes behind. The spice is all but gone in the flavor but the alcohol is a bit more subdued. The body is full and heavy, lower carbonation, oily finish.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle. Clear, copper pour with a thin white head. Black licorice up front in the nose followed by some cherry and Belgian spice. More licorice in the flavor and some prune. Clove and pepper. Alcohol is definitely present. Medium body and highly carbonated. Leaves some residual sugar/sweetness in the finish. Overall fairly tasty, if lacking in refinement.

burg326 (3884) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle that pours a golden orange with aroma of clove, yeast, banana, and sugar. Taste follows the aroma, had a light spiciness due to the yeast, but it was offset with a touch of fruit flavor at the end.

bobaidan (516) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Pours dark amber with a small head. Aroma is candy sugar with a bit of funk. A bit sticky with just enough carbonation to go down. Flavor is very sweet with a hint of pepper.

there was a time i really loved belgian ales, but eventually i got tired of their dark candied sugar flavors and high alcohol content. this beer reminds me why i dont like them anymore. just not into this stuff anymore. is good for what it is though.
