Large beige diminishing head. Red-brown body. Aroma; nice!, sweet, caramel, raisins, plum, spicy, hops/citrus, alcohol/rum. Medium body. Taste; sweet, fruit/plum, spicy, caramel-bitter finish. Can't help thinking of Het Kapittel Prior and t'IJ Struis when I drink this...

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Wow, I am impressed. I was exspecting the over cabonated dry exprience that I had with Saxo, but this is a horse of a different color. Huge head, that I have come to exspect with La Caracole brews. Aroma is dusty raisen and yeast. Flavor is quite spicey, with black pepper and corander. A very nice fuzzyness on the palate, finishes sharp and clean. Top Notch.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 30, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew whose cork was dated 10/2002 poured a very invigorated head. Pour only 1/4 glass of this one or it will foam up and over flow your mug in no time flat! It had a large light brown head of small bubbles. Its body is a yeasty cloudy dark brown with a lot of carbonation rising. It had an aroma of hops and malt. It was initially bitter and had a strong after bite, but its bitterness was not so strong as to ruin the smoothness.

This is a nice strong Belgian that keeps you warm inside. Good with dinner.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2003
This one pours a dark, murky, brown color with a medium sized, mostly lasting, tan head. The aroma is malty and sugary with hints of plums, molasses, and brown sugar. Very smooth and full bodied with moderate carbonation, the flavor is fruity, yeasty, and spicy with lots of caramel and malt flavors. The finish is long and sweet with a bit of toffee and alcohol. Good beer.

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2003
The cork on this bottle was dated 10/2002. This brew poured an excellent head. The aroma was fruity, citrusy, and sugary. It had an aftertaste that seemed to linger in my opinion.

shorlin (591) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 17, 2003
Big head on this deep hazy reddish beer. Aroma is quite nice, with some sweetness, good Belgian strong maltiness, and fruit, like pears or perhaps peach? Flavour is almost as good. The 9.5% went straight down into my stomach and sort of said "Oh yeah! I like it here!" Very warming and good. Overall, nice beer thanks to Beerprince!

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2003
This beer pours with a beautiful thick white foamy headheld up by adequate carbonation. It's lasted over 15 minutes in the glass and counting.The beer itself is copper-brown with some haziness.The aroma is a mixture of sweetness,malt,bready yeast aromas and alcohol.Sweet,malty,yeasty with a touch of fruit and more alcohol in the flavor.I bought the beer soley on it's name and label I must admitt that really is the best part about it.Great name,middle of the road Beglian Strong Ale...which in this style is soemthing I would still buy again.
