(bottle, thanks AndyMagnum) Pours a dark brown with an off-white head. Nice aroma of malt (caramel) spice, banana and raisin. Very malty sweet taste initially which rounds out to a nice spicy finish with some yeast to round it out with a slight alcohol kick. This is a quality beer.

RoyceH (1197) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 5, 2007
Bottle. Dark browny murky, thick huge white head. Nose is spicy and peppery, some hints of lemon, plenty of malt. Some rosemary and yeasty. Mouth is slightly less fizzy than the nose, spices and cinnamon, some coriander and raisin, with bags of pepper. Quite nice and drinkable, unfortunately drank on a hot night, probably best to save for a cold one!

Overall: sweet malt is well balanced by the spicyness, light bitterness rises out of the spices, plenty of bitterness

Goût de malte doux, peu caramelisé et des fortes notes de fruits épicés, sensation d’alcool plaisant.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Taster on tap at Stone brewery after aged beer tasting. No head. Deep amber color. Taste is a bit young and unrefined. Smell is too mild to rate. A little background harshness. Possibly the tiniest bit of background sourness that rises off the back of the tongue as a finish. Alchohol is prominent, reducing the drinkability of the beer.

jgentgesdo (681) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours translucent dark brown with red notes. Nose is spicy, herbal, with Belgian candy sugar, yeast, cream. Flavor is initially allspice and thyme, quite sweet, with a rather biting peppery yeast note. Strong alcohol note. Creamy mouthfeel. Heavy bodied. Pretty good stuff.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 4, 2007
On tap at Stone. Cloudy dark brown with a thick creamy white head. Earthy aroma of dark fruit, yeast, chocolate, and caramel. A rich smooth taste of chocolate, dates, figs, and the hops come through in the finish.

hapjydeuce (972) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 30, 2007
2005 Limited Edition bottle. This is a very interesting brew, difficult for me to describe. Pours a deep copper color with a copious beige head that lasts. One of the spicier Belgians I have ever tried. Very herbal aroma, hints of grass, and the classic notes of banana, pear and raisin. Sweet and peppery initial flavor that fades into a more citrus-based hops finish, followed by the noticeable amounts of thyme used. Yeast is definitely present too. Great tingly finish on the palate. Nice!
