3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initially I found a plum-like fruitiness with round, sweet malts in the nose but this was undercut by a sour cherry-like acidity. Clear ruby brown body is topped by a generous if large-bubbled tan head that recedes rapidly to a partial cover. Flavour offers a nice blend of malt sweetness and fruity esters with a bit of acidity that puckers the cheeks a bit. Medium body is surprisingly light perhaps due to very strong carbonation that is a touch too prickly. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Aug-08.

12 oz bottle. Interested in this after a friend tried it and said it was decent. Pours a dark reddish color with a small off white head that disappates quickly. Smells of a little bit of hops, a lot of raisins (and other dried fruit), and some caramel malt. Tastes of raisins and caramel, but with very little hop presence. Has a little bit of an alcohol bite (though only 9%), but otherwise quite smooth. Pretty good, but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel, malt, sweet aroma, a hint of spice maybe. Pours an amber brown. I must say i feel the flavor’s missing something, its alittle too timid. Its got some brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, some hop spice, smooth, but i gotta say their Cru’dor is better. But this one does benefit a good cause! and i love the label!

This beer really need to warm up to 55 degree plus before rating. Beer pours dark mahogeny with a totally dissipating off white head. Aroma is malty with some raisins and alcohol. Flavor is malt with figs and a bit too much alcohol. My big complaint with this beer is that the alcohol is too apparent.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2007 Bottle.
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, raisin, plum, clove.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Second try, and still the same outcome: Not bad, but somewhat vague in character...pretty run of the mill strong Belgian brown.
