rajendra82 (999) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Classy packaging of a tin with corrugated cardboard padding, which ensured that the beer was well protected from light and shocks. The beer looked deep copper when pouring out of the corked, and caged, 22 oz. bomber, but it looked nearly black in the glass. The head was quite small, but lasted a while, and left a solid sheet of lacing on the sides of the St. Bernardus goblet. The smell was apples, cherries, pears, and raisins, with a touch of allspice. The taste was very fruity as well, but the sweetness was balanced out by yeasty dryness and spice, and the beer was not at all cloying. The balance was outstandingly drinkable. The mouthfeel was light ,and the alcohol was well hidden. The finish had some brief spicy notes before tit faded. This was a quality beer in all aspects.

corby112 (2704) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with plum hues and a one finger beige head that has great retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap/ring. Splotchy lacing left behind. Slightly smokey, chalky aroma with dark malt sweetness and estery Belgian yeast notes. Hints of plum, raisin and fig along with subtle oak, caramel and roasted chooclate malt. Medium bodied with a dry, slightly chalky texture and a nice balance of peppery spice, sweet and roasted malt and estery dark fruit notes. Subtle roast with chocolate, caramel and toffee flavor along with faint peppery spice. Lots of dark fruit sweetness on the back end with vinous grape, cherry, currant raisin and plum. Nicely balanced with a slightly dry finish. Complex and flavorful with a well masked ABV making it very easy to drink. Another nice beer from Ommegang.

ben4321 (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Location: 750ml bottle procured at Buy Rite a couple years back, 10/23/15

Aroma: The nose is a bit boozy considering the age, dark fruit, chocolate, and Belgian yeast
Appearance: Pours a brownish color with a slight amber hue, murky, beige head, light lacing
Flavor: It tastes medium sweet, similar to the nose, with the dark fruit, chocolate, and booze
Palate: Medium-plus body, fairly lively on the carbonation front, a bit of stickiness and a little heat
Overall Impression: Since the bottle claims it would cellar well, I gave it some time, but my cellar is getting low, so it was finally time to pull this one out. Opens up nicely around the desired temperature, do not serve this one too cold or the flavors will be too muted. Overall, there’s a lot to like here, but it doesn’t quite live up to the best Belgian examples that is is attempting to replicate.

Very Happy with this bottle. When cold, the carbonation is strong and balances out the smooth sweetness. Complex aroma and flavors. When warm, you can really enjoy the palate and warm booze. Goes head to head with Trappist dark ales.

Sat on a bottle for a few years. Heavy hitter with lots of molasses and burnt sugar and bread and tobacco. Age did it well and it shows its abv but not in a bad way.

Pour on tap, dark brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, toast, slight vanilla, hints of grass into a bit of dark fruit, some slight spice into a bit of roast. Taste was a mix of toast, caramel, dark fruit into a bit of vanilla, orange, hints of grass, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.

hotstuff (4532) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Rated on 02-23-2013 at RBWG. This corked and caged bottled beer is courtesy of thedm and myself. This pours a medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes, orange brown transparent body, no visible carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is dark fruity, brown sugar, caramel malt, toffee, and semi-sweet. The flavor is dark fruits, caramel malt, toffee, metallic, and sweet. The mouthfeel is smooth and a bit oily. This beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer with a nice flavor and worth trying.

AirForceHops (4995) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2014
750 ml bottle encase in a aluminum tin. Purchased at Georgio’s Liquors about a year ago for 18.99!!! Dark, deep brown that I can tell is brown when held to the sunlight. Aroma is plums, dates and candi sugar, tones of yeast.

The flavor starts with a blast of Belgian candi sugar and transitions into plums, figs, toffee and dark toasted grain. The finish is sweet and sugary. The alcohol is well hidden with a milder carbonation level. Overall it’s a very nice drinker but not really worth the hefty price tag.
