DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
yeasty, bubblegumy nose with some hottness and some cherry twizzler. nice looking red-tinted dark burnt amber, the halo settling in a thin ring. yeast, bubblegum, and candi sugar flavors and some overall hotness. the hotness, yeastiness and sweetness combine cloyingly.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Tap at brewery: Chestnut hue. Smooth, creamy-soft texture. Malts were earthy, sweet (Belgian candi sugar flavors), and sticky. Alcohol was big and warming. Aromas were pleasant. Delicate flowers, spices (clove), herbs and fruit (pear, banana and big cherry right in the finish). On the sweet end of the spectrum. Enjoyable beer.

Very well done, surpirsing choice of style considering the brewery is on a island some 10,000 miles away from Belgium! Like Trappiest Achel 8, very much in the hints of plum and ripe berries. Good malt balance - robust and delicious.

Draft at brewpub. Dark brown with a really nice head. Nice lacing too. Dark fruit aromas with roasty malled nose. Flavors were similar with a decent warming finish. Pretty good
