Mahogany pour with a big khaki head. Lots of banana, plum, and raisin. Sweet brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. A bit of toffee, some alcohol, and soft spice and yeast. The flavor is extremely smooth. Great caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Banana, raisin, plum, and hints of pear. There’s a nice soft spice character, some yeast, and a creamy mouthfeel.

joeneugs (3121) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On draft at Beer Revolution. It pours a very dark ruby red color with a thick khaki head that lasts forever. The aroma is full of ripe, dark fruit. Plum, fig, pear, apple abound with light notes of banana. The flavor is very smooth and fruity with some mild yeast derived earthiness and spice. It has an herbal hop finish. No hint of the alcohol, as this goes down way too easy. Balanced and very nice.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
Draft. An unclear chestnut colored beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, caramel, and lemon. The flavor is very sweet - a bit too sweet for my liking with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a sligtly tart finish.

marcus (6365) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
On tap at Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Pours dark brown with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. The flavor is fruit and sweet dark malt with a warm alcohol trail.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2009
Draught. Pours a murky amber brown with golden highlights and a dense vanilla coloured head that leaves clingy lace. Very sweet aroma of stewed fruits and caramel malt with yeasty undertones. Heavy, sticky-sweet palate of caramel malt, dates, and cooked apples. Warming finish with very low bitterness. Even as a sipper this got to be a bit much.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2009
On tap. Pours a hazy dark brown with a tint of orange and a creamy beige head leaving some lacework. Sweet aroma of dried fruit, prunes and dates. Quite full-bodied, heavy on the dried fruit flavours with lots of burned caramel and brown sugar. No bitterness - absolutely no bitterness. A bit of a sugar bomb - and a bit too much, even for me. 110709

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Roasted malt and light spiced phenolic. Sweet caramel malt flavoured, light fruity and distinct yeasty phenolic trappist note. Sweet and lingering malty flavoured finish. Smooth and classic Belgian on the yeast profile.

Courtesy Hopscotch, what a f’ing bottle!! Very hazy amber when poured. Aroma is sticky sweet, candy sugar, green apples, some maltiness. Flavor is more of the same, with the sweetness being a bit much for these taste buds.

clear dark red, wispy off white head, nice lace, light sweet malt aroma, big sweet malt flavor, lots of candy sweetness, touch of fruity character, nice light bitterness in the finish but not enough to counteract the sweetness, still a good sipper even with the sweetness

opaque dark rusty red, sweet dark fruit and raison aroma, sweet candied fruit flavor, gritty brown sugar character, sweetness has mellowed nicely and better balanced even though there is no more apparent bitterness, nice chocolate blends well with the fruit,

Huge thanks to hopscotch for truckin’ this monstrous 3L bottle to bobo’s event. Pours brown-ish copper with thin tan head. The aroma gets different with each tug. It goes from sweet caramelized malts to smokiness to sweetness to bacon (what?!?!). More whiffs bring up only sweet caramelized maltiness. Nice aroma. The flavor is nice and thick with rich caramelized maltiness to figs and plums and other dark fruity flavors. The midway point the caramel becomes smooth and candy sweet and just grows in strength toward the finish. Very smooth and rich brew. I loved it.
