This had a good amount of complexity to it - from start to finish, it was hard to put my finger on any one flavor that stood out - sweet and sour, spices, pepper, etcetera. Thick brown appearance with great lacing. On tap at The Sharp Edge, Pittsburgh.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2004
Liked this slightly more than the Tripel. Rich foamy head. Deep earthy malt balanced by spicy hops. Nice palate, bitter malt aftertaste, dry finish.

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2004
Dark reddy brown body with a large lasting tan head. Aroma was very malty with raisins and grapes thrown in. Caramel in the taste as well as nuts and good alcohol. Decent enough beer but not my favourite.

SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 March, 2004 Bottle Conditioned. Huge head which can be removed after a few re-pours allowing the malty aroma to come through unobscured by co2. Soft, but now mostly empty mouthfeel. Alchol awareness, especially in finish. Autumn colour. Nothing much happening here. [2.8]
Jan, 2011 Soft brown ale. Chalky. Few hops. Sweet flavour, but neutral to dry mouthfeel. Yeasty. Hints of licorice and toffee. Drinkable and pleasant, but the Americans are more exciting and adventurous with their brown ales. [3.2]

Looks beautiful, a nice deep copper colour. BIG long-lasting head...spicy aroma carries forward. flavour is malt and there's tons of it...super carbonated, thin...A solid beer.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2004
Dark brown with a pale tan head and lacing that lasted to the bottom. Raisin/plum fruit with notes of citrus and coffee. Flavour is similar, malty and sweet with alcohol apparent in a thin body. Didn't have the complexity that I was hoping for.

Tessic (836) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2004
Pours almost a dark red colour with a frothy brown head. Moderate malty scents with molassas notes. Slight citrus / chocolate / vanilla combination. First sip had big flavours of dark malts, slight coffee flavours, prune citrus tastes and a small amount of alcohol flavour this tastfull Belgian Ale. The palate was flavourful with remaining tastes of dark malts and a slight vineger flavour. Really malty!!!

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Thin head with minimal carbonation. Thin foam lasts the duation of the drink. Subtley complex aroma with grapes, raisins, sugar and a hint of alcohol. Slightly cloudy dark mahagony in color. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma. Sweet flavor with loads of malt and a bit of grapes. Finish is warming from the alcohol and a little thick. Surprised since I thought the flavor was a little weak. Not detecting much hops either. An ok belgian which starts off strong but finishes a little weak

Deep red in color with a tan head. Raisin and caramel aroma. Malty. Hoppy. Pretty good. Enjoyable.
