Pours amber with 5 cm of tan head with frothy lacing. Nose is roasted malt and caramel. Taste is tanned leather, more alcohol, and caramel. Subtle, yet warming. High carbonation and full-bodied. Good glow to this beer. Very nice.

Flaske. Den bedste måde at beskrive denne øl på er pærevin. Måske endda pærebrændevin blandet op med vand. En umiskendelig duft af pære, og en smag af pære var dominerende i den flaske jeg fik. Udemærket øl var det dog.

Red colour, firm white lasting head. Aroma: spices (coriander pepper), alcohol. Lots of alcohol flavours, only slightly hidden by lots of malts, which makes it a heavy beer. Too bad those dominant alcohol tones.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Poured a nice reddish-amber color with a lacy head. Aroma consisted of a strong alcohol presence with some malt and spice notes as well. The beer honestly had a taste akin to champagne, which is not exactly a bad thing. The mouthfeel is slippery, with a nice finish containing a slight hint of alcohol. Not in the league of the Belgian quads, or even some of the best American quads, but a very enjoyable beer.

Bottle at home. Pours a beautiful hazy ruby. Rather thin, creamy head. Fruity aroma of cream with plum and some almond. Sweet, well-balanced taste of spice and toffee with a hint of fruit and some alcohol warmth. Very pleasing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ML Bottle-Poured a copper color w/a slight tan head & good lacing. Spiced aroma. Not as sweet as other Latrappe samples, spicy w/some pepper & colander. Kind of a dry, tart taste, maybe a little bit of peach. Wasn’t bad, but it was my least favorite of the 4 brews sampled during a July 4th Vertical. Long dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2009 Bomber; looks like ’06 vintage from the date stamp. Copper-mahogany with a small, but persistent and creamy cap that leaves frosty lace. Spicy, earthy chocolate, caramel, and vinous aromas. Chocolate-caramel apple initial flavors turn to strong apple-grape with slight spices and dryish white wine. Palate is light-medium; smooth with a nice hint of dryness and a slight alcohol tingle. Purt near to cloying, even for someone who loves malty-sweet beer. Still it’s a delicate fruit sweetness; could easily be mistaken for a sweet white wine. Not really a favorite, but a unique beer and glad I tried it.

While I thought the mouthfeel of this beer was quite good, I was not a huge fan of its sour grape and champagne flavor. It is lightly sweet and tastes a bit like dried fruit, which may have been what bothered me (I’m not a fan). Aroma was a bit of a candied fruit sugariness. I had this beer on draft, and it was not unattractive in its martini-like branded glassware - a hazy red color with a white scummy head of inconsistently sized tiny bubbles. Still, i was not a huge fan of this beer.
