Bottle. Molasses and dried fruit aroma. Cloudy dark brown color with small head. Dark raisin malt flavor with moderate acidity and carbonation. Pretty good.

Noticed this bottle is "Best before 4 Sept. 2004", and it’s now February of 2006. Oh well. Poured a medium opaque brown with a nice off-white head. Nice aroma of dark fruit, brown sugar, and banana. Flavor is quite nice, somewhat bitter, with notes of chocolate and wood. Medium bodied and well-carbonated. Overall this is a pretty good, drinkable Belgian; not the best, but pretty good. The time past the expiration date hasn’t affected the flavor or quality in any negative way.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Tap. Clear brass with a frothy cocoa colored head, dashed with cinnamon and cocoa powder, creamy and thick. Aroma brings us down a couple notches, accentuated by driving through the grain belt, honeyed straw and apple crisp. Warming, boozy feel upon entry. Uninterrupted, watery brandy paired with some applewood. Liquid whole wheat bread diluted with coriander. Add some cinnamon and cardamom for spice and an overall oily texture, and voila: Maredsous.

Ratman197 (12148) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2006
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear dark copper with a lasting off white head. Aromas of spices, toffee and dates. Palate was medium bodied smooth and clean. Flavors of spices and a light fruitiness with a dry, sweet finish.

Bottle shared with tupalev at Esplanade Bier Markt. Pours a cloudy dark copper with a small lasting off-white head. Pleasing sweet aroma of yeast, malt, nuts, spices and alcohol. Flavour starts sweet with caramel malt and spices -- then yeast, dark fruit and wood -- and finally finishes with alcohol and light hops. Thin bodied. Nothing exceptional but a pretty good Strong Ale.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle shared with blankboy at the Bier Market. Dark brown, fluffy mogul like off white head. Malt, spice, lots of alcohol in pleasing aroma. Nice taste - very dry spice, malt and tons of yeast. A very dry yeast finish. Thin mouthfeel. Pretty good, just very simple and straightforward. Probably the best of the night.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2006
Aroma is fruity malt with yeast. Taste is similar however to highly carbonated for it to be a great brune, dry finish too.

Quevillon (2748) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
Elle est chaleureuse, riche et plaine de saveur. Très dificile de le trouver au Québec, mais c’est l’S.A.Q.
