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.

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.

750ml bottle acquired in trade with footy (thanks). Poured a medium to deeper mahogany color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of raisins, yeast, cherries, chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of raisins, other dark fruits, and spices. Thinner body with the alcohol content well hidden.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2008
She’s Ripe, Crisp, Lively, VInous and Alcohol Heavy. The richness of the dark malt and ash give a late roastiness.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2008
Dark rusted brew with burnt orange notes around the edges and a decent 1/4 inch head. This beer has a sweet candied nose and flavors of dark fruit, brown sugar, and alcohol. The brett comes through a bit in the finish but isn’t as prominent as in other beers I’ve sampled. Good beer but not memorable.

Dorwart (2500) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2008
About a 3/4 inch head of fine and creamy bubbles. Light carbonation. Nice roasted grain aroma with some chocolate, raisins, plums and a bit of cinnamon. Dark mahagony brown in color. Semi sweet flavor with more raisins, spices and dark roasted malts. Light alcohol presence late swallow. The flavors meld together very well. Creamy and buttery on the palate. Finishes silky smooth with a lingering alcohol warming and strong malt presence. A darn good belgian strong.
