Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle split with maniac. When he uncaged it, the cork near took his eye out! Pours black with fluffy tan head. Molasas in the nose and LOTS of anise flavor. Very velvety and delicious.

mephisto (1275) - TAIWAN - APR 26, 2008
this brew just gave me a scare, the stopper hit the roof after i unwired it. other than that it’s a nice belgian, sweet malt aroma that is spicy and caramelly accompanies the dark copper hued appearance. the flavor is fruity and chocolatey with lingering sweet finish.

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.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2008
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.

agl108 (904) - 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 (2528) - 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!
