2007. Pours a cloudy port colour. Soapy aroma with some patchouli. Rather bland, on the whole.

On tap at Max’s. Dark red pour with a white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Sweet hoppy taste with a bitter alcohol finish. Very nice.

draft @ stumbling monk - reddish amber with big tan head; aromas of sweet berries, spice and yeast; drinks very smooth with a fresh and clean aftertaste; texture is very juice-like

Drier compared to the McChouffe. Dried spices with a slightly citrusy finish. You feels just a touch of the 10% ABV on the finish.

Nice chouffe, comedy for a 14 year old kid. Which I had to say because I am one. Very impressed. A decent balance of flavours that were present without being dominating. And stronger than womens love for tissues. Pretty blood good i say.

bottle, brown with good head. Fruit, brown sugar, spice, plum. Good balance and finish. highly carbonated, hides the alcohol well.

2006 Vintage - What an amazingly simple, yet tasty beer. Okay, maybe simple is the right word. But it’s not barrel aged, or a "super premium" beer. Just a well made, highly enjoyable Belgian beer.

The beer pours out a dark, cloudy brownish/purple color with a nice two-finger thick light tan head. A mesmerizing aroma butter, plums and mashed raisins. Vanilla and overripe bananas also show up. Where’s the 10% alcohol? Mouthfeel is crazy smooth. None of that overly harsh carbonation I find in some Beligain beers. Smooth as silk here. Flavors are a tongue-warp to try and get them all. Dark fruits like dates, rasins and plums abound. Caramel, chocolate dipped oranges, oak and various spices play thru. Highly recommended.

Draught @ the Dilly Deli. Pours a rich dark brown with ruby highlights and a fine tan head. The aroma is caramel, spices, and sweet fruit. The flavor is again caramel, spices(maybe a hint of corriander), sweet fruit, brown sugar, and toffee. Thick and syrupy. Alcohol does make an appearance, but not in a bad way.

DSG (11468) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 Bottle (2007). Dark reddish-brown with a huge beige head. Pleasant aroma of malt, yeast, spices, brown sugar and some fruits. Sweet flavor of malt, caramel, some yeast and spices. A drier finish with a slight alcohol burn. Alcohol is a bit too noticable. A medium to full body and a bit overcarbonated. A good beer.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle: some yeasty sourness, very fruity, malty, some weak cherry and berries like notes, some dark fruits notes, some weak chocolaty notes, mild but persistent hoppiness all the way through, some caramel sweetness, full bodied, alcoholic bite but a nice one, a good example of a typical belgian ale.
