JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 13, 2008
750ml purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquor. Pours a dark brown with a big head of brownish bubbles. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, pit fruit and anise. Taste is very sweet, a little syrupy, just barley thinned by the dry orange peel and anise. Alcohol could also be higher to cut it (8% is not really that strong for this style). Not one of my favorite Belgiums. Very average, and too sweet.

This beer can easily be considered a cheaper substitution for more expensive alternatives such as the chimay series. Although it is not quite as good as the aforementioned chimay, it is quite good. Get it and try it out for yourself.

moelikebeer (221) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Corked bottle. Very opaque, dark brown pour with a medium head. Aroma is sweet, malty and fruity with a hint of licorice. Flavor of roasted malts, fruit, licorice and slight coriander aftertaste. Medium bodied. Very smooth with a nice carbonation.

agl108 (824) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured dark brown with fizzy light tan head. Highly carbonated. Very sweet. Lots of caramel, nuts, and roasted malty flavor. A pleasant surprise.

unclemike (2359) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Beautiful, slowly diminishing light brown head. Dark red-brown body. Sweet, fruity, spicy, liqourice, little metallic, with a bitter finish. A "powerful" beer to finish of a long session (you will still be able to taste it!?!).

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2008
Dark brown with a pumped up thick head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits and a deep malty baseline. Fat and oily palette with lively carbonation and flavours of marzipan, chocolate, pepper and some orange. A grand beer!

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very dark chestnut brown with creamy foamy tan head. Aroma is dark fruits and chicolate. Taste is semi-sweet with ripe juicy fruits, plum, pear. A little dry chocolaty honey flavor in the finish. Mature complex taste. Fantastic.

BeerEssential (96) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2008
NIce, tight, foamy, bubbly cream-coloured head, with smallish bubbles, which keep up nicely until you begin to drink. Deep, dark colour with a red glow at the edges when held up to the light. Mild yet fresh aroma. I couldn’t detect a great amount of the flavours advertised on the bottle (star anize, orange peel, coriander), only slightly in the aftertaste. Somewhat bitter, but not overly. Moderately dry.

ilovedarkbeer (2374) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Massively overrated. Pours a mahogany color with some reddish highlights. Head is tope colored amd medium sized with a nice and thick feel. Nose is muted mostly of sugar and spice. Taste is entirely lacking. Almost no taste to this beer. A little bit of bread and candi sugar, but other than that nothing. Finish is short.

ekstedt (5674) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Draught at Zythos Beer Festival 2008. Very dark brown with a small beige head. Strong spicy notes, nutmeg in particular, and some roasted dark chocolate. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Slightly sweet initially, dry finish.
