shadey (2068) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2005
The bottle foamed over big. I had to run to the sink. From what is left I got a hazy brown/red pour with a quickly diminishing head. Dark fruit, malty, sweet aroma. A little yeast and spicy. Flavor is very nice with all that complex flavor up front with a trailing finish of spice. I taste the sweet mollasses, the banana, the dark fruits, yeast, and a hint of alcohol to firm up the body. Very nice stuff.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Pours reddish brown with a good sized off-white head. Smells malty with a hint of plums. Taste is hoppy with hints of molasses bananas and alcohol. I fine belgian beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Pours like all these other Belgians I’ve been having—murky brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit, yeast. Sweet flavor, but not cloying. It dies off at end. Good, too thin to be great.

Ayumbomb (63) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2005
One of the best Belgians I’ve had this year. I really want to make a puny statement about some sort of goofy prediction of me liking this beer, but I fear it’s been done many times over, and I would hate to be puny and trite. Anyway, the beer was delicious and I will probably try it out again soon.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a large and rocky slightly off-white head. Great lacing throughout. Brown sugar and molasses aroma along with fall fruit and a hint of bitterness. Brown sugar and caramelized fruit flavor with a hint of alcohol burn that reminds you that this is a heavy beer. Very faint sourness at the end. This beer does a great job of being unique to itself and not tasting like just another brune.

MmmmCheese (29) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Another good Belgian strong. Also has the fizzy head that sounds like soda. This one doesn’t mask the aftertaste as well as some other ones I’ve had so I’m docking it a few points. That’s just a personal preference though to not want the Belgian strong after taste.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2005
11.2 oz bottle Pours a cloudy red-brown with 1/4 inch tan head throughout consumption. Aroma is malty sweet with sour overtones. Taste is similar. Lacks the blatant Belgian yeast flavor. It’s there, but just not super strong as with many Belgian brews. Lingering alcoholic warmth. Not bad but I’ll try something else.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2005
Mahogany colour. Thick white/yellow-ish head. Cake, red berries and sugary nose. Sweet, full bodied flavour, with hints of brown sugar. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Small hints of orange in finish. Chocolatey, acidic aftertaste.

ross (2134) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2005
bottle. pours dark red in color with a huge head that goes away rather quickly. has a plum and fruity smell. taste is sweet, yeasty, malty, yet rather watered down tasting. slight alcohol ting to it as well. not a bad beer, not the best, but certainly worth a try and something to order if seen. id drink this again, any day.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2005
Bottled, sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Dark copper colour. Almondy nose, rich malty adn clear notes from the alcohol. Flavour rich and sweet - almost cellary - with an alcohol touch. Big and malty brew.
