Pours a dark brown with dark red highlights. An off-white head is quick to form and lingers for quite some time leaving moderate lacing. Aromas of dark fruits, freshly pulverized mint leaves, spicy yeast, suggestions of candy malt, and hints of funk. Taste is equally complex with dark fruits, berries, yeast, pepper corn, mint, sweet breads, candy sugar, piney hops, and a some slight earthy notes all mixed together in equal parts. Carbonation is full and lively yet the alcohol is non-existent. The finish is short and dry, leaving your mouth freshly spiced with mint and peppercorn. The first Winter brew I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all year.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - JAN 17, 2008
Draft @ BSP. mmmm....poured a near opaque brown-black with decent dense beige head. Nose is fruity, yeasty, perfumy, with lavender coming to mind. Equally complex on the palate, with initial plummy sweetness melding with winter spices towards a delicate, flowery finish. A very nice Belgian winter brew.

This is great, great stuff. Easily the smoothest beer I’ve ever had above 7% (it’s 10%) and one of the smoothest ever. Plums, raisins, and a very enchanting honey quality make this like a thick mead. Very rich and extremely subtle, the opening, mid-palatte and finish are very synonymous.

mdachi (35) - Paderborn, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2008
75 cl bottle. Appearance: dark brown with light brown head. Aroma: malty and sweet with slight fruit. Flavor and Palate: malty and alcoholic, but not that heavy. Seems to be a "copy" of Chimay Grand Reserve and not a bad one. Some traces of orange peel. Overall a nice trappist-like beer.

BigBeer45 (1414) - Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 2004 Bottle, pours a clear dark brown but looks to be a medium ruby when held up to a light, off-white head, nice lacing that shimers on the glass as it moves with each drink, aroma of chocolate dipped berries, dark candy, caramel and malt aromas, dark bread and faint funk fragrance in the background, dark tree bark, faint mint fragrance, faint alcohol in the background, flavors of blond brownies, some chocolate, I felt some alcohol warmth on the palate, dark malt, caramel, has the pepper on the finish, dark candy flavor, faint herb and spices (from the Thyme?), plum, blue berries, sort of a faint taste of berries dipped in nectar and dripped onto my tongue flavor, the alcohol does not not grow as this ale warms which is a good thing, there is a tingle of bitterness on the tongue to balance the sweet, this was lively on the tongue, light on the palate, has good carbonation, a thin to medium mouth feel, a nice drink to stay warm during the Winter nights.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JAN 8, 2008
Bottiglia da 75cl al Cantinone di Sampierdarena, versa colore ambrato scuro con non molta schiuma beige abbastanza evanescente. Aroma caldo e fruttato, al sapore dolce con forti sentori di uva e qualche accenno di frutti di bosco e un accentuato piccante d’alcool. corpo piuttosto robusto. Ottima.
