Sampled at the RBSG ’07 Grand Tasting room. Pours a hazy orange-ish brown brew with a fizzy light tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is funky with green vegetable scents, some black pepper, soy sauce and a touch of dried, dark pitted fruit. Taste is a little off, very sweet, medium bodied with a metalic aftertaste. Finish is sweet with some high alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. More of an experimental brew than a Begian Quadrupel. Hoping this may have been in an infected packaging, try again?

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with woody amber highlights and a nice foamy head. Aroma is apple brandy, and ltos of dried fruits, estery- good full dark malts, caramel, toffeel, molasses, slight smoked rauchmalt, and earthy leather hint. A bit too sweet- almsot turns to a slight soy oxidaiton, brooan malts, dark crystal spec b fruitiness, raisin and toffee, maple sugar, brown sugar and apple cider as it warms. Big and full body an mouthfeel and a nice long finish. Pretty good.

At the Iron Hill Belgium Comes to West Chester event. Quite sweet with a bit of fruit in the background. Didn’t really get any Belgian character out of this.

JK (4861) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Not so good. This beer has an aroma of Chinese takeout. It is brown in color, lots of malt in the flavor, but an off flavor of vegetables.

TomDecapolis (4605) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 14, 2006
On tap at the North Wales location. Pours a dark brown with some amber when held to the light. Head was average size, off white in color. Aroma was very roasty, dark fruits, light alcohol, molasses. Flavor was also very roasty, hints of chocolate, sweet and very dry. Not exactly what I was expecting. Less fruity and more roasty than I have come to expect from the style they were going for.

RBSG 2007. Murky brown color with no head. A little coriander in the aroma with black pepper. Celery, coriander and yeast dominate the malty body. Nice.

750ml bottle picked up by Dean with gift cards I got for Christmas, sorry I rated it without you buddy. Poured a nice looking super deep reddish/mahogany brown with a head size greatly determined by the vigorousness of the pour, mine had an average sized light beige creamy head with a rather vigorous pour. Aroma started off with some sharp sweetness like dark fruits and sugars in some fresh wort. With time some light dark alcohol notes like sherry appear along with brown bread dough, raisins, prune, plum, sugary chocolate and Belgian yeast. Body is a touch thinner than expected with a medium mouthfeel and average yet very bubbly carbonation and a long lingering aftertaste. Flavor is more chocolaty than I was expecting, light burnt malts, dark fruit skins, Belgian yeast, dark burnt sugar. Good beer, complex and big.

Appearance: Pours an opaque brown body with a fizzy, medium-sized off-white head. Smell: An aroma that’s mostly chocolatey and fruity, but also having hints of spice, candi sugar, and a whisper of yeast. Taste: Quite sweet with tart, fruity flavors of bananas, cherries, and plums. Hints of chocolate, ground spices, and dark candi sugar. Slight yeastiness. Light floral hop taste, but no real bitterness. Warming, candied finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Some creaminess to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: A decent, Belgian-minded beer from Iron Hill.
