I am drinking this dressing Achouffe’s red gnome’s hat :)
A dark ruby brown color with a big creamy and cloudy tan head. Cardboard, pepper, plums and alcohol in the nose. Strong alcohol presence in the palate - fruity, spicey, some licorice- well-made as the most of Achouffe-products. Warming aftertaste.

Typically bombastic Achouffe yeastiness, and loads of malt. Nice Belgian barley wine.

bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2006
Alcohol interferes with aroma -meaning, I guess, that I don’t detect anything strongly. Dark ruby brown color. Flavor is malt, accompanied by unassignable fruit. A bit sweet, but that’s expected. The malt overpowers the hops at the finish. Very drinkable, but perhaps a bit of citrus would balance things.

argo0 (12370) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2004
(2002 bottle) The age didn’t affect the carbonation -- a gusher upon opening. Heck, after losing about 4 oz. and pouring another 4 into the glass, the foam in the bottle STILL made its way back to the top, ready to resume streaming down the side. Red brown body topped by a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is sweet, brown sugar, herbal, prune, coriander. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, coriander, toffee, herbal, some orange peel, dark fruit. Finish is dominated by moderately strong alcohol. Full, moderately sticky body.

bu11zeye (12314) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2004
(750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of raisins, yeast, and banana. Flavor of dark fruits, malts, and winter ale spices.

Tmoney99 (12070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle from Party Source. Poured reddish brown color with an average frothy head that lasted with good lacing. Complex dark fruit and yeasty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of long duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a good beer

Christian (11806) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 Deep and cloudy red brown with a good big head. Malt aroma with dried fruits and flowers too. Malty flavour, sweet without being overwhelming, some alcohol/wine notes too.
