Dorwart (2341) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Thin head of fine bubbles that dissipates rather quickly with a light carbonation. Rich and fruity aroma with some raisins, plums, dark roasted malts, belgian candy sugar and some sweet tarts. Color is a ruddy dark mahagony brown. Rich and malty flavor with a noticable alcohol kick and presence. More raisins and plums along with some toffee and cloying sweet malts. You know, the kind that stick in the back of your throat. Finishes hot and malty with a bit of vinuous flavors. A pretty good belgian strong ale.

Dark brown beer with a tan head. Some nice terrain and starts latticing a bit. Aroma is a blend of dark fruit and sour wine. Big-bodied, rich in alcohol, but not too hot--you know it’s there, but it doesn’t overpower, kind of like a well-made spirit. Really rich, sharp flavors--you have to drink this slowly. Very warming. Palate is paradoxically viscous and bouncy at the same time. Very tasty.

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2011 75cl bottle 2011. Pours an almost black/brown with bubbly and noisy but very small head that disappears. Nose : Alcohol with dried plums, coffee. Raisins and licorice notes. Sip : Almost flat, smooth body. Nose aromas comes to life : dried plums, caramel and coffee. Warming alcohol feeling. Honest brew, a bit too flat but compensating with this plum wine feeling which isn’t disappointing but I couldn’t finish my bottle ...

jkwood04 (3418) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2011
11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours deep rubyish/brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel, a little nuttiness, slightly roasted malts, spicy yeast, and some light hops. Something about Kasteel’s beers just don’t work for me. They are good Belgian ales, but not as good as others. Average texture.
