Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - JUL 26, 2004
Cherry-red colour, light brownish head, little existing. Volatile red-orange aroma, dark malt, banana aroma, weak vinous, weak aroma of preserved plum, "egg dough cake" soaked in rhum, light yeasty. Taste is fruity (ripe banana), cane sugar sweetness, light alcohol. Oily to watery texture, light body, very easy to drink, thin mouthfeel.

Thanks, civforprez for sharing this bomber. A typical brown Belgian in my eyes. Pours a dark, cloudy brown with a little bit of red. Has little head or lacing. The aroma is maple, brown sugar, a little dank must and leather. The taste is maple, apples and glazed donuts. Overall, a little sweet, but in a pleasurable way.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2004
Bottle pours milk chocolate, large fizzy off-white head, ample carbonation, with rather slick lacing.   A somewhat earthy aroma, light spices with some dark pitted fruit.   Dark pitted fruit up front, with some toffee flavors.   Slight hop bitterness emerges in the middle.   Remaining dark pitted fruit, plum, raisin, figs, all the way through to the finish.   This was quite good.   Body was fanstic, mouthfeel was good.   I’d have this one again.

zach8270 (3583) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - Great European Beerfest 8, Sharp Edge Tavern - East Liberty, PA] Poured a rich amber color with a thin, creamy white head. Sweet, malty aroma with a hint of caramel and various spices. Initial taste was sweet and caramelly with a strong alcohol backbone and a creamy sweet finish. Very tasty.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Bottle at Brewtopia ’04 Deep amber color with an aroma of sweet caramel and hints of anise and spice. Sweet caramel flavor, slightly spicy. Slight alcohol in the finish. Decent Belgian offering, but there are so many other better Belgian beers to compare this to and this offers nothing to make it rise above the crowd.

Kevin (2103) - New Mexico, USA - JUN 23, 2004
bottle. pours a very dark, looks like cloudy iced tea. thick head that is slightly tan. sweet fruit aroma with a little spice to it. warm nutty flavor with a sweet finish. malt and alcohol flavor comes through in this a little too much. this is not a very subtle brew.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2004
Very impressive, with a yeasty, caramelly, dark fruit and candi sugar flavor; alcoholic and warming; rich, slightly spicey, and somewhat complex. Beautious.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Deep ruby body, dense medium-particled tan head. Nice glass lacing. The nose is dominated by caramel and alcohol. Fruitiness makes up the remainder of the nose. The flavor is very malty, rich fruits and caramel all wrapped up in a package of alcohol warmth. Full and rich body. Yes it is a tad one-dimensional, but it is a very drinkable brew.

Deep amber, not much head. Doesn’t taste too carbonated, either, despite the cork going flying like that. Tastes a bit too estery. Sweet finish.
