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.

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.

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.

Very impressive, with a yeasty, caramelly, dark fruit and candi sugar flavor; alcoholic and warming; rich, slightly spicey, and somewhat complex. Beautious.

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.

savannah (37) - columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Beautiful amber color, but no head. Aroma reminiscent of banana nut bread and alcohol; not appealing for a beer. Flavor of fig and banana, with very thin feel in mouth. Slight alcohol tones. Almost undrinkable. I'm not a fan of belgians, and this is no exception.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Poured a murky brown with a very loose head and heavy carbonation. Aroma was faint for the style, but had some berries and cedar. Flavor of figs and pineapple was again milder than expected. The palate was left with a nice brown cani sugar coating. Overall, a little thin, but nothing objectionable.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Dark reddish brown, wonderful aroma of walnut, oranges and pears. Roasted bisquit flavor with wintergreen below it and alcohol dryness. Smooth and sweet going down. Very nice balance of complexity and rustic qualities, MF’ing "Spot-On" !!!
