4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
