Bottle. Aroma is chocolate and nuts. Flavor is really spicy with peanuts, ginger and cocoa. I get some ripe fruits, like tangerine and papaya. Super complex with a prickly mouthfeel.

Sampled at Tomme Arthur Brewmaster dinner in Chandler AZ. Pours a blackish brown with a decent off white head. Aroma of rasins and yeasts. Flavor is rasins, spices, malt, and some crazy funkiness probably from the brett. I enjoyed this one.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep, dark leather color. Thin, bubbly, light white head. Aroma of dark fruits, candi sugar, maple syrup, and raisins. Nice mix of fruits and spices in the flavor. Pears, raisins on the fruit side. Cinnamon and nutmeg on the spice side. Roasted malt finish, very little warming alcohol.

Deep amber with hints of red and an off-white frothy head. Nose of dried fruit and hints of spice. Nice fruity flavor with more fruits coming out as the ale warms. Great texture and sweetness, almost hints of chocolate that hide the higher alcohol.

750mL bottle, first bottling. Poured deep chocolatey brown with a shorter cap of creamy beige head. The aroma picked up candi sugar with dark fruity (and lesser banana) esters upfront.. warmth brought out semi-sweet chocolate covered raisin notes that I really enjoyed.. candied darker spices and a hint of molasses at the back. The flavor was heavier on the dark spicage (nutmeg really jumped out at me).. spiked raisiny sweetness and chocolate again on the middle.. finished spicy and warm with rising esters and a blast of B.R.E.T.T. funk that I was expecting earlier. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation on the palate that clashed a bit with the esters on the back.. all in all a very good beer.

Thanks to my bro for sharing this one. Aroma is dark fruit, molasses, nutmeg and cordial cherry. Taste is dark fruit, belgian spice, grape, cherry and some light yeast esters. Light carbonation and well blended flavors this is a good Belgian Strong, however, I was expecting more out of it. Still, it’s a beer I would not turn down.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Let this warm up to a little above room temperature. It tastes rather bad cold. Thanks ’TheCheeseMan!’ Pours a plum brown with a medium off-white head with some streamy lacing. Aroma is plum, raisin, and some other light fruits. Taste is metallic, raisin, dark fruits, spices, and some nuttiness. I agree with my brother that it lacks some carbonation.
