Pours a dark amber with light caramel colored head. Dark fruit, bread, brown sugar, caramel, and alcohol. Pretty standard belgian, uninteresting, and the alcohol comes through too much. Its not a bad beer, its just not very good for the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brew pours amber with a decent head that slowly recedes to a fine canopy and a thin ring. Rich aromas of fruitcake. Medium full nectar with good carbonation. A rich and malty personality with just a mild sweetness factor. Quite complex with nuances of cherry, plumb, wood, cakebatter, kiwi, and a hint of spice. The finish is long with a mild sweetness that lingers and only mildy bittered. This brew is generous.

Nice overall, but too sweet and not enough depth for a higher rating. There are too many other Belgian strong ales (Delirium Tremens, for example) that are much better than this one.

Amber in color, malty, sweet, fruity with lots of taste from butterscotch and caramell. Quite typical for this sort of brew. Full pot in appearance due to the funny Kwak-glass everybody loves.

Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.
Nice cherry wood colour with a tiny white head.Lovely malty, hoppy aroma and a sweet slightly spicy taste & unlike some other belgian beers this one doesnt have a massively bitter aftertaste.
Sweet smell and taste, I thought that the alcohol was covered up pretty well. This is a good intro to Belgian brews. Fruity taste: apple, pear, grape.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Pours a gorgeous amber orange colour with an impressive thick off white head. Aroma was quite sweet and somewhat malty with notes of yeast. Citrus, caramel, spice notes as well. I was happy to try it. Amazing and clever glass.....way to big to conceal on your way out of the bar.
