COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a vaguely hazy dark brown with a beige head. Vinous, port-like nose. Delicate, roasted malty accents with some alcohol. Notes of dried fruit and - again - port wine. A very refined and sophisticated brew. 270106

madsberg (10458) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottled (Courtesy of BBB63 - thanks): Dark amber coluored. Light brown head. Grass, sweetness, alcohol and cocoa in the nose. Flavour is yesty, sweet and light roasted. Has some liqouice and citric notes. Light sourness is underlaying it all. ends on a sweet, alcholdense and grassy bitterness. Yet another nice one from this brewery.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Chesnut brown in color with a thick brown head of tight bubbles. Initial aroma of mild barnyard, and lactic acid followed by caramal and toasted malt. The flavor of dense munich malt and slight roasted malts, finishes with very slight spiciness and tartness. The mouthfeel is very balanced between the mild bitterness, the malt sweetness, high carbonation, and sour finish. I feel this beer is actually an Old Bruen but I noticed it is not in the styles, so dubbel must be the closest RateBeer could get. If you like sour beers I think you’ll love this one, if you don’t try the white ale from Jolly Pumpkin.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 8, 2006
750ml bottle. Pours a dence brown color with a small off white head. Nose is black cherries, brown sugar, some light tofee, a sweet candiness to it as well. Taste is more black cherry juice, lots of vino here, some grapes and brown sugar. A light fizziness on the tongue with a filmy finish and wonderful lightly sour and tart aftertaste.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Vanilla cocoa smell. Spicey cinnamon citrus mix with some notes of chocolate mixed in. Excellent!! First beer I had at a tasting in Orlando 11/27/05. It has lambic like qualities. This particular one was stored for a while so it was very smooth. Kudos to Jason from Knightly Spirits!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2005
Vanilla, coconut,liquorice, oranges and alcohol all make appearances in the sweet, candylike aroma with an overlying toasted malt character. Opaque brown body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, tan head that lasts and leaves some nice lacing. Somewhat boozey flavour with orange, bubblegum, floral, vanilla, orange and lightly spicy (cinammon) characteristics. Medium body with soft texture and lively carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, ClarkVV, Goldorak, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Spicy and mocha forward nose with hints of bakers cocoa, toffee, brown sugar, plums, rasins, figs ,cinnamon and bananas. Orange peel comes in slightly upfront on the palate which gives way to an almost brandy and coffee cake mid palate. Touches of coconut come thru towards the end. Nice soft and mazingly complex brew.
