This beer pours a mahogany reddish color with a medium sized pearlish white head and good lacing. The aroma is strongly sweet with caramel and bread and a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Strongly sweet and dark tasting beer with coffee and vanilla extract abundant. Absolutely a beautiful beer to begin with but astoundingly sweet as it warms, almost difficult to temper. Carbonation is fairly mild with heavy burnt coffee aftertaste. Mildly dry, stout like almost. Very little alcohol presence.

Dark brown beer with big brown head, it smell sweetly of malt. It’s a lot like the maredsous 10, only sweeter and less astringent. Lightly fizzy and malty in taste, this is not a heavy or hard to drink beer, and not especially flavorful, either. $3/12 oz

Pours deep brown with a huge fluffy head. Sweet malt aroma with a caramel / malt taste. This one will warm you up. I can’t wait to try the 10.

Bottle. Syrupy and yeasty aroma. Very nice head. Good lacing. Caramel, raisins and lasting sweet aftertaste. Yeasty flavor throughout with bitter finish and alcohol warming. Carbonated, malty mouthfeel. Very good beer. Would be perfect to add to gameday chili.

Dark with a burbon aroma. Tastes like a sweet burbon, with the alcohol quite evident. I was surprised to see so many high ratings. Had on tap at Flying Saucer in Houston.

Deep brown, with a ruby tint. Poured a nice head with quite impressive lacing all over. Smell is of ripe fruits/malts/and yeast. Taste upfront has fruity tones. Ripe cherries, plums, and green grapes. Infused with deep rich malts. A very complex Dubbel. Finishes crisp and dry, and semi creamy. Alcohol warming is also present. An incredible Dubbel and one that you should definitely try.

Dark coloured with an average off white head. Sweet yeasty aroma, with some dark fruity hints (prunes?) and a little herby-caramel touches. Full sweet caramel body. Finish is roasted, bitter-sweet with again some caramel touches. A very nice belgian strong ale.

A nice beer, no major faults, but nothing to rave about. Sweet and yeasty aroma. Nice flavor, very drinkable, medium body. A rather run of the mill beer, but good.

750mL. I wanted to like this beer. Starts off with large foamy head that lends way to smells of grapes, plums, and various spices. Tasted of light grapes and molasses. The body was thin and the finish was fizzy. I was hoping for more.

On tap at the Yard House in KCK. Served in a goblet. No head. Dark red to purple color. Very clear. Aroma of prune and raisin. Some cherry notes. Maybe even some nutty character. Dry finish. Alcohol is very restrained. Very nice.
