UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 brilliance radiates in reds and oranges..yeast, apples, carmel, chocolate,and alcohol all suspended in the air..yeasty intro, bready, almost chewy...cinnamon apples & candy apples, lots of peppery alcohol in the back of the throat..Its quite enjoyable for a beer that has sat on the shelf staring at me for the last year..as i always passed it by because of its tacky ass label..Since I've gone through every beer at that store, I finally decided to give it a try.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 17, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 750 ML bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a small staying head. Alcohol, caramel sweetness and dark fruity yeast make up the aroma. Ends smooth, plummy and warming.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2003
750ml corked bottle.Cloudy hazy creamy dark reddish color, nice big foamy off white-tan head that lasts, yeasty, fruity and spicy aroma. Bready malty fruity flavors, full and soft palate, sweet yeasty banana bitter sweet finish, not the best but not bad and worth a try.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2003
Reddish mahogany, decent head formation. Complex aroma, creamy caramel, vanilla essence, cookie dough wild fruits and light peppery spice. Palate is mildly buiscuity with a sweet sherry fruitiness, green apple and vanilla. Good hoppiness in the finish and alcohol bite.

jonas (5720) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2003
fizzy strawberry and malt aromas. Hazy dark red, big head. Malt with earthy edges in the start, vineous ethanol towards the end. A bit foamy mouthfeel. Exits without too much of a goodbye, nice though.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Dark amber appearance with a frothy, creamy white head. The carbonation is somewhat heavy in the finish, as is the alcohol, but the flavor is good. Fruity and hearty.

notalush (4921) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2003
This is some good stuff! Brownish-red color with a really nice lacing. The aroma is of caramel-covered apples and pears, and the flavor is of caramel, toffee, and chocolate covered fruits. The fruits (esp. a slightly cherry flavor) linger into the finish and hang around for a considerable amount of time. This is highly recommended if you're a fan of belgians.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2003
@Betty's: This beer was a cloudy medium dark brown color and had an off white head that left some lace as it subsided. An aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. It had a flavor of malt, toffee and fruits. A warming effect of the alcohol present was is the finish. A somewhat chewey beer, as some have said.

MrDick (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 23, 2003
Holy diver, you've been down to long in the midnight sea. Dark brown pour with barely a noticable head. Strong malt taste from start to finish. Some fruit (raison and plum) flavors racing the barley noticable spices. An average belgian strong. Ride the tiger.

Slighlty watery, but very nice to drink. Alcahol is a bit present. Like the color and clarity
