Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2006
Dark coppery color, big light brown head. Spices, medium alcohol, caramel and mild chocolate. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is better than aroma: chocolate, licorice, medium alcohol and spices, aftertaste is warm with dryness and some caramel.

Furseth (1999) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2006
Bottle: Light red, with a werry big creamy foam. Aroma of hopps, Belgium yeast, and a fruitynes lika Vine(Champagne) Fantastic finish with a sweet maltynes and fruityness like it is in a White Vine, who never ends. A complex beer , with a nice smouth bitterness in the end.

Sten (694) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2006
A amber coloured beer with a nice slightly brown head and a beautiful glass. The aroma is sweet, malty and there may be a some banana noticeable. But the aroma is way to sweet. The flavour is also sweet and a bit spicy. The beer is simply to sweet. (Bottle 33cl)

What a great beer. Thoroughly enjoyed this all the way. Can’t say anything negative about it except I don’t have another to drink. Aroma was malty sweet and a touch of caramel. Flavor also had the same as the nose but a little sweeter, grassy, and yeasty. I do like a sweeter ale, so this was right in the wheel house. I’d definitely get this again!!"

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Light amber gold body with a small white head. Aroma of peaches and yeast. Flavor was nice, if not terribly complex. I tasted peaches, green grapes, and yeast. Very drinkable, but not in the class of the great Belgian Stong Ales.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle 58F Trappist glass, Aroma is very floral, very sweet candi notes. A very rapidy diminishing white head, I walked away to put down the bottle I came back and the head was gone. Very light amber color and very clear. Slightly sweet malts, with just a touch of roasted malts, hint of cherry, bit of decaf coffee, finishes slightly dry, nothing very complex. It holds a very light palate. With light carbonation. It seems a bit light for a Belgian Strong, the alcohol is masked very well. Not bad but not in the same class as the Rochefort 8. Still enjoyable.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Decent beer, a little simple for a belgian strong ale. Golden in color, large white head. Alcohol is very well hidden. Tastes kind of like a Duvel with less complexity, still very enjoyable.

HopDevil1979 (117) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2006
A great sweet treat - a perfect beer to drink when eating custard, flan or creme brulee. A true dessert beer. I also could not figure out how to get the glass out of the wood thing.. Is there a trick?

Trankon (4) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2006 does not count
Aroma afrutado y con gran sabor es curiosa la forma en la que se bebe por la base de madera que sujeta el vaso... Nice taste... the coachmans beer....

Fruity aroma, frothy white head, very flat palate, medium bodied with complex flavors. Fun to drink because of the little wooden holder. Nice brew.
