Bottle: pours with a large off white head that stays. This sits atop a hazy amber brown body. Aroma is full of sweet spices; cardomon mostly but good orange and corriander very nice. Nice estery dark ftuits blend great with the spices, awsome aroma one of the best spice beer aromas i have had. Wow the flavor is great the mix of spices and dark fruits is fantastic. Some alcohol sneaks in yo let you know that you arw drinking a big beer.

Pours bright mahogany into a trappist glass. Off-white head quickly recedes to skim surface. Sugar plum and nutmeg aromas. Full with upfront sweet gingerbread and a lasting allspice finish.

reddish brown with white head. sweet nose, mild carbonation, little hop bitterness. sweet malt before some almost roasty like flavors with a lot of candy like belgian yeast notes, alcohol almost completely absent. an interesting brew and a good one, doesn’t really fit in a style specifically. enjoyable on a winter’s eve

On tap at Toronado. Surprising. Wasn’t sure what this was. Love Ommegang. This was totally out of their profile. Strong, boozy, delicious. Something that could age well. In their CAVES. It was tasty. Hit the tongue almost like a sherry and with a blast of alcohol. My kinda beer. Turned happy hour into happier hours. Highly recommended if you like them strong.

So rich. Pretty good holiday brew. Poured with a smallish off white head and a tiny bit a lace. Color is a hazy medium amber. Aroma is a very rich, heady, malty nutty, caramel, toffee. Flav is about the same. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is a little long. Not a session. Cook with it?

Headbanger (2974) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2009
750ml bottle 12/22/09 (Binny’s-Downers Grove)-Pours a dark brown with hints of amber with a medium off whtie head. Aroma of fruits, spices, and malt. Taste begins with big time spices and they last throughout the mouthful and it finishes with some sweetness and slight alcohol. This medium to full bodied brew is not the best from them but still very tasty and nice for the holidays.

What a delicious brew. Had it last night at Belgian Cafe. Sweet aroma of orange and corriander. Sweeter taste than any strong ale I have had before. Its body was a dark amber color, medium head. Really a great drink.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2009
750 ml bottle. Deep brown body with ruby notes. Frothy tan head that diminishes to pools of small bubbles. The aroma is full of raisin, fig, plum, coriander, orange peel and anise. Slight hint of toasted malts. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Slight tartness in the finish. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Slight chalkiness in the finish. Tastes like an overly sweet, spiced quad with some mustiness and anise in the background. The sweetness, not quite cloying, barely leaves room for the spices which results in an odd lingering aftertaste.

Mahogonay pour, thin bubbly white head, sweet malty aroma of dark fruit and spices. Delicious taste of coriander, citrus, a little clove and banana and dark fruit. Wonderful beer.
