Artevelde Grand Cru features a dark red-brown colour, a firm, creamy, and cream-coloured head. The smell of roasted malt, caramel and the sweet fruitiness of the alcohol give this beer the perfect aroma. Caramel, sweet fruitiness and a pleasant bitterness are the predominant flavours. Its aftertaste reveals a pinch of toffee and date. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast. Triple fermented.

Note: moved rating from wrong beer: I'd say below average for Belgian dark ale. The flavour has the typical lightly raisiny fruitiness and dark malt, but the malt doesn't develop very well and the palate is far too yeasty for my tastes.

I was pretty trashed by the time Smokeless Joe cracked this one open for me. Dark red/brown pour. Yeast berry aroma, some spice. Head is short and lacey. Big bodied. Lots of alcohol in the nose and flavour. Gives way to spice, fruit and chocolate/caramel. It is fairly rounded. But lacking something really special.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2004
Dark ruby pour with an off white head that dissapated into a creamy little island. Aromas of bread, spice, fruit, and maple syrup. Citrus flavors of grapfruit, bread/yeast and spice (coriander or clove.)Full bodied and a hoppy spice filled finish. Nice.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Dark brown color with tawny through the edges, little to no head. Aroma hints of plum & clove with a nice balanced hoppiness to balance the alcohol. Flavor is well balanced. The finish is full-bodied & refreshing. Not complex but still solid.

This is a nice, lightly sweet for the style, moderatly well balanced Grand Gru with flavors of raisons, figs, and strong malt. Bold and flavorful, but maybe a little thin and dry for the style. I prefer Grand Couralus (sp?) by far, but this one is quite drinkable. This got better as it warmed, too. I'm not sure it's worth the $6.29/750l bottle. I wish I could brew something half this good, though......

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2004
Smell is subtle and a touch spicy. Yellowish head that has big bubbles in it and dies quickly. Deep spicy flavor with a noticable alcoholic sharpness. Strong raisin flavor but the alcoholic bite leads into a dryness that makes you want more.

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2003
Almost muddy brown auburn colour with a large off-white head. Fruity/nutty aroma with prune undertones, noticeable alcohol in the taste but it is not offensive, nutty flavours with more fruit showing. Refreshing tangy finish. Cheers!

Reddish in color. Thin white head. Its a heavy beer but light in flavor. Very enjoyable beer. This brewery makes a lot of good beers and this is one of them.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Nice reddsh color, with a tinted with off white head. Fruity aroma, with notes of licorice and plums, but also treacle. Aroma gave an indication of a heavy beer, but flavor is light and fruity. Slight licorice or treacle note. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Nice amber color and lightly caramel/fruity aroma. Taste was a combination of plums, molasses, raisins, and malt. Pretty nice really. Worth splitting with a friend.
