Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

Awesome beer. Deep amber color with a long lasting tan head. Aroma really stands out. Strong spicy, flowery. Flavor is full and rich. Mouthfeel is awesome. Great beer. Can’t wait to try all the rest.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Dark burgandy red like a fine leather reading chair. Nice head and solid carbonation. The aroma is sweet, apple-spiced, light ethanol and wonderful perfumes. The flavor is apple peel with a slight bitterness then sweet malt and champagne yeasty fruitions. Alcohol is present and accounted for, but not over-bearing. This is one of Americas best crafted brews and a great bargain. Its a Strong Belgian-American.

Deep reddish brown color, frangrant aroma. One of my favorites and I drink this very often. The spices and the sweetness of the beer blends very well and leaves a wonderful aftertaste and mouth-feel.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Beautiful deep burdundy with a moderate tan head. Appealing aroma of fruit and spice and candy. Medium body with a slight fizz. However, to me, the flavor was unpleasant. Too astringent.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
Very dark amber. Light continuous head. Strong fruity wine/port aroma. Classy flavour. Sweet cherry and chocolate. Alcohol kick. Almost demands a fancy cigar, steak or desert.

wow, this is a really good beer. cant believe its rated 96%. awesome pour, huge head that lasts the whole glass and when you refil it, same thing. dark red in color. fruity smell with a nice sweetness. taste is sweet smooth and somewhat hoppy. slight taste of raisans and some hints of chocolate. this is a most excellent beer. finish is dry and and leaves a wonderful aftertaste.

Dark red-brown in color with a thick head. Nice balance in the flavor. Hearty flavors best with hearty meal I’d bet.
