Pours a clear dark amber with quite a bit of off white head. Smells of lots of sweet malts and nuts. Taste is lots of sweet malts again with dark fruit and alcohol. Somewhat fruity and sweet, nice amount of sticky malts. Seemed more like a Dopplbock to me.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Dark brown with a nice tan head, good lacing. Malty notes in the armoa, and a slightly sweet, malty flavor with a nice, dry finish.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Aroma of grape and plum. Deep ruby color with a huge fluffy beige head. Flavor has green apple, grape, plum, lightly tart and peppery with a dry finish. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2005
NIce thick redish brown body with a large tan head. Aroma is of raisins and molasses. Tastes much like an English ESB with more complex underlying flavors. It is noticeably sweet, but the sweetness balances the bitterness pretty well. The roasted malt comes through strong and there is a sour yeasty bite at the end. A good beer, but there are much better Belgians out there.

trafford (171) - Germantown, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2005
The head was creamy and tan, with a dark amber body tasted caramel and dark fruits. Had a great ale flavor that finished strong.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle (330ml). At Pub Italia, Ottawa. Poured mostly clear bubbly dark copper with a huge off-white rocky-creamy lasting head and lacing. Aroma very mild - spices, sweet malt, alcohol, yeast, raisins, a touch of metal. Flavour sweet - apples, raisins, lemons, light roast malt, noticealbe alcohol, quite bitter on the finish. Astringent and a bit alcohol-harsh on the finish - fruitiness comes out on warming. Overall not bad, but there are much better dubbels out there. - it does improve and open up on warming, don’t serve too cold.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Brown with small cafe crema head. Caramelly, chocolate, raisin, spicy aroma, bit of yeast. Warming in the mouth with a softish finish. Very pleasant.

frankenkitty (1975) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Simply gorgeous appearance: mostly head to start... creamy & rocky, fizzing down to peaks over a plum/burgundy/caramel body. Intricate lace left behind. Deep, dark-fruit aromas, mostly prune & molasses with port wine. Flavor was difficult to interpret. Crazy to start... complex. Vinous caramel with minerals and a sweet & earthy ending. Palate was sour-dry with light astringence from alcohol that remained very hidden until late in the tasting. Will gladly have again.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2005
A very dark purple brown color with a big white head. Raisons and molasses and brown sugar in the aroma. Chalk, rubber and dark fruit in the body, not to bad, but nothing special.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2005
muddy water brown color with some amber highlights. has lots going on, some of it hard to decifer. very sweet, some coffee and those french vanilla creamer things in the aorma, along with some chocolate and oak and purple grapes with maybe a hint of raisin. flavors are basically the same but more subtle. pretty acidy. you can get the alcohol kick on the end. meh.
