On tap at the Yardhouse, Irvine. Pours the color of rootbeer with a thin white head and a transparent body with ruby hues. Light aromas of toasted walnuts and fresh black cherries. A touch of vanilla is splashed across a sea of caramel, enhancing the bouquet. Thin, lightly carbonated body with a bit of a raw sugar sweetness. Some anise notes and molasses mingle on the tonue with some prune and light chocolate notes. A nicely developed brew with an emphais on the nutty malt profile as opposed to yeasty spice. This beer is dark and nutty to the point where it reminds me of a belgian styled brown ale.

Corked bottle poured a chunky, fluffy head that’s lacing never exhausted. Bready aroma, and copper colored body spice and rasin flavors have Maredsous 8 filling out all the needed characters on the Belgian Strong Ale checklist.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Good and rich malty aroma with some chocolate and spiceyness coming through. Nice deep mahogany color with a good size cream colored head with good lacing. Nice rich malt flavor with the chocolate malt coming through. Good medium body to the beer that has a little bit of spice and a slightly dry finish. I would never know that this is a 8% beer as the alcohol is hidden well. This style is one of my favorite types of belgians as I prefer the dark and malty doubles more than the triples.

Pours a dark mahogany color with a tan head that has good retention. The taste is of caramel and coffe malts there is also a distinct hop taste. There is a lot of carbonation present and the alcohol is well hidden.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Pours deep amber with tan head. Sweet, floral hop aroma. Belgian hop & yeast flavor with an alcohol warmth present and a nutty maltiness with a caramel background. Finished with a nice hop lingering on the palate.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2006
A fine dark Belgian that smells as good as it looks. Very balanced flavor with caramel sweetness and an alcohol presence. Smooth texture and nice finish. Definitely drink this in the proper container at the proper temperature for total enjoyment.

On draft at Ludwig’s Garten... Appears a dark brown with a light red hue and a beige head that slowly fades out. Light scattered lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of light caramel, cocoa, figs, raisins, with some doughy bread notes. Taste is of the same aromas that seem to work well in unison. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a creamy, sugary raisin, and yeasty feel that cling to the palate.

timtheenchanta (70) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Dark brown with large tan head and lots of thick lacing. The smell is dark fruit and alcohol maybe a little bit of plum. The taste is alcohol and roasted grains… surprisingly. Tastes of coffee and none of the fruitiness from the smell. Smooth creamy feel. A bit thin. Good taste. Interesting brew. I’ll try this one again the next time I get a chance.

On tap. Dark rosewood with dense cream head. Aroma is musty, and cheese-like. Flavor is plum and cheese. Interesting.
