A ruddy red you can barely see through. Tan head, mostly diminishing. Aromas are of orange, brown sugar and chocolate, as well as grass. Tastes are very sweet, with orange and spice being dominant. The finish displays some sour and bitter chocolate notes that round out the beer. Light enough and hides its alcohol until the end.

I may have gotten a really old bottle of this, it didn’t seem quite right. Poured reddish brown with no head. Flavor was sweet with lots of fruit, sour cherry and plum specifically, and some burnt brown sugar. Finsh is alcoholic. The flavor as a whole seemed a bit harsh.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2005
Zythos Beer Festival, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium 2005. Red-brown colour. Sweet fruity malty light alcoholic aroma and a light roasted caramel malty taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

"Muddy brown" is the most accurate description of this ale. It has a nice fizzy head that haloes immediately. The aroma that greets you is one of sweet caramel laced with alcohol. There’s some yeasty fruitiness in there, too - cherries, plums, perhaps come citrus. The drink is sweet with some alcohol and spicy heat packed in. Wonderfully warming drink.

Pours a dark brown. Nice tan head that lasts a good while. There is some sedimentation in there as well. Good tasting beer. I thought it hid the alcohol well. Not a bad beer at all.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2005
Trying to top "Straffe Hendrick Brune" the lovely bartender at "Den Tatoverede Enke", Copenhagen, suggested this fine Belgian Strong Ale. Sweet and somewhat alcoholic with some dark fruits. Good stuff, but you can find more interesting examples of the style. I foretell myself sampling more beers from this brewer.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Deep burgundy color with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, yeast and alcohol.Taste is sweet malt and some fruitiness. Alcohol is well hidden but slowly creeps up. Finish ends in a slight bitter cocoa taste. Very nice, but not great.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Too much sweetness going on and not enough alcohol bite for me to really like this one. Lackluster effort at best.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2005
Dark brown colour. Very nice aroma, complex smell of different aroma’s. Caramel, coffee, little bit fruity. Very nice beer!
