on Tap at Father’s Office in Santa Monica. A well-rounded brew that goes down very smooth. Flavorful malt and fruit taste, slightest bit of hops and alcohol. Very nutty. Rich, creamy finish.

75cl bottle. BB 210305...cork has1/02 on it. brown beer with some head that largely drops. Malt and fruit aroma...cherries maybe blueberries. Drinks light with an abrupt bitter finish...some alcohol comes out there as well...this surprised me in that I found it quite passable, and even enjoyable for sipping while I cooked. Certainly not great, but it found me a lot better than the 10 did, with its heavy alcoholic presence.

Has a clouded dark brown color with a thick off-white head. Smell is of malt and spice. Taste is of malt/spice/chocolate and finishes with a slight alcohol bit. Overall a fine strong ale.

I love this brew. Kinda spicy but subtle. The alcohol is a bit deceptive, but not overpowering. Good stuff.

Hansen (6981) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2005
A good belgian ale. Not as good the real great ones, but still worth a try. Dark brown and big head. Mainly malt in the aroma and flavor. Little bitterness, but not sweet.

IndianaRed (2640) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle Pours a very dark brown/mahogany with a very lively foamy very persistant tan head. Thick clumpy lacing. Aromas of brown sugar, dark pitted fruit, and that belgian spice. ABV is noticeable. Flavors are very dark and smokey. Quite charcoaly and woody. Little in the way of hops. Feel is nice and smoth but not particularly thick or heavy. Finish is a soft slightly bitter smokey taste. That Belgian spice is not so prominant in this one...I like it.

Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 19, 2004
Dark color tending to the red one. Foam much creamy and supporter. Inferior alcohol aroma strongly but to the 6 Blonde. Sturdy body much fort in the nose.
