bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2009
Good lasting off-white head on a dark brown body. Subdued notes of dark fruit, fig, liquorice and some yeast in the taste and aroma, with not a lot of any characters really standing out. Drinkable and don’t notice the alcohol.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2008
[bottle - corked and caged 750 ml] Dark brown color with a very small but creamy looking tan head. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Good solid malt nose mixes well with some light spice and yeast. Some grapefruit and candy as well. Tastes sweet and malty at the beginning with lots of candy sugar and malts mixing with some yeast and some various fruits. Very lightly spiced.

Habanero (4118) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
Bottled. Pours dark brown with a finely textured fluffy tan head about an inch in height. Excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruit and burned malt. Full bodied with subtile flavors from the spices. The spices don’t overpower this beer but add subtle nuances instead. Slighty citric bitterness and date like flavour. Nicely n´balanced. A very enjoyable brew.

robinvboyer (4178) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2008
wicked aroma of dark ripe fruit, lorads of plums, figs, apples, and a really nice licorice anise aroma also. Great malt in the flavor, and more of the nice fruity notes. Finished smooth, and sweet, great after diner beer.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2008 Purchased for me by my loving girlfriend Nancy at ’Jungle Jim’s World Market’ in Fairfield (a suburb of Cincinnati), Ohio - This one pours a VERY dark brown brew with a light tan head of foam and a complex anise(liquorice)-fruit aroma. Tastewise, tis is a complex mingling of fruit and malts, with subtle hops over-and-undertones. This IS a great beer!

Stefano (1972) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 Dark brown with fine white lasting head. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, citrus, and some spices. Sweet malty nutty flavor with some hints of dark fruits. Malty finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Cold winter night beer.

trevor211 (1631) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2008
This one came across as an Abt. / Quad brewed with grape juice - like part dark Belgian beer, part wine. It has the dark brown color and great head of something like SB Abt. 12, is slightly more carbonated, and has the same flavor profile - dark fruits and spices. It definitely has grape juice notes, though - something I actually found to my liking. Great stuff, more of a dessert beer, though.

One of my favorites from the belgian beer tasting in Boston 9/27/08. Wonderful fruit and caramel in perfect balance, with delicious coriander notes. Exemplifies why this is one of the best styles in my mind.
