Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2007
This is a real pleasure to drink. the taste of dark fruits, caramel and a few spices make this a great addition to me ratings list. its got a cola feel to it and the taste doesn’t have the real alcohol punch that a Belgian Strong ale should have.

nick76 (4257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 The aroma has dark fruit, caramel, spice, and yeast. The appearance is mahogany with a nice foamy head. The flavor is very sweet and quite bitter but mostly like the aroma. The palate is average for the style. Overall, it kind of reminded me of a bitter alcoholic spice cola.

Bottled. A deep red beer, with a big beige head. malty aroma. The flavour is fruity, spicy and yeasty, with a big sweetness and light hop presence. A sweet aftertaste lingers on your tongue for much time. A good beer.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2006
Bottle. Dark, hazy, brown with tan head that disappears quite fast. Sweet, candy like taste. Low bitterness, short after taste. More refreshing than most dark beers. Low alcohol taste for being so strong. Soft carbonation,
