Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

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.

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.

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?

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.

"I must be missing something, wasn’t a fan of this one. Poured a light brown with fluffy head. SO MUCH sedimentation. Aroma was of caramel malts. THe flavor was sweet some grass and a yeasty aftertaste. Ah well not awful not great. "

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours a cloudy amber color with a light tan. aromas of spices, citrus, fruit, and sweet malts. Flavor is carbonated, citrus, and fruit.

Dark amber in color with a rich, fluffy head. Taste is smooth with maltiness, caramels, citrus, and hops. Nothing fancy here, but a solid brew nonetheless.

Bottle. Great color, pours a head, but doesn’t last. I had this on tap a few months ago and that seems much fuller and robust. The bottle is good, but nothing like the tap. Finish seems really sweet.

Creamy white excellent mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma but loads fo citrus. Powerfull flavor, long finish. A litte watery palate, but I really like this beer.
