Pours dark brown with a little ruby color. Decent sized tannish head. Malty, fruity aroma but less yeasty in aroma than other Belgians. Alcohol also apparent in the aroma. Very dry and lots of carbonation. Slightly smoky as well. Way too thin for this kind of beer.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Murky brown amber color with white floaties, creamy head. The smell is quite floral, somewhat citrus, hoppy. Lots of carbonation here. But quite a mild flavor. A bit sweet, a tiny bit of bitterness, can’t really taste the alcohol. This is a really nice belgian strong ale.

Draft. Brown with a medium tan head. Aromas and flavors of toffee, a little sweet -- good and rich. Medium bodied, with a hint of citrus. The hops and yeast are pleasantly present, with a good malt balance. If anything, this beer could use more mouthfeel and a sharper emphasis on the yeast. Still, a good strong ale, not astringent, with a fair amount of complexity.

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 (7051) - 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.

Pours dark orange with mild red tones. Soft fluffy tan head. Nose is malty and biscuity and bread-like. Flavor is of raisins, plums, rum-like and malty. Brown sugar and woodsy. Finish is spicy and slightly stingy.
