Burnt copper with a creamy, but quickly disappearing head. Aroma of caramel with fruit undertones. Medium body. Overall easy drinking with a smooth finish.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Just horrible. Maybe I had a bad bottle but this stuff was horrible. Pours a nice ruby color with white fluffy head. Smell is of dark fruit and malt. Taste is fig, apple, and red grape. Very vinous. The worst part is it had TONS of yeast chunks. No matter how slow you poured you could feel the yeast chunks as if it were pulp in orange juice. Just disgusting.

Bottled. Reddish with a white head, lacings. The aroma consists of a sour acrid sensation with hops. The flavour has ahopsy taste with a rank aftertaste.

Hazy brownish copper color. large foamy off white head. lots of yeast floating in bottle. aromas of alcohol, grapes, dark fruit, malt, and yeast. dark fruit, grape, some spices, caramel, and alcohol in flavor. a bit too alcoholic for a complex belgian but still enjoyable.

DuffMan (7828) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Orange-brown with a big creamy head. Fantastic aromas of chocolaate milk and caramelized bananas. Big flavours of caramel, brown sugar, with a rummy quality. Well-rounded, full-bodied palate. Alcohol is present but not harsh. Excellent.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2005
One of the old stanbys in Uden....love the glass and wooden stand. Poured a golden brown, small off-white head that stayed around. Slightly spicy nose...some fruity malts, notes of caramel and yeastiness. More sweet malt in the flavor, some woodiness, more spices and fruitiness. Very tasty....smooth mouthfeel right to the end.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Very good, very srong, the glass is nice. Itis dark, but too spicy, i like it, the foam is there and the character is great.

Panzerfaust (595) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 21, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 Pours a nice orange color with a creamy big lingering head. Aroma has some hoppy floral notes like roses combined with a sweet and spicey nose that shows apricots and clove. Flavor is strong and well-defined with VERY sweet ripe fruits in the beggining, hints of caramel and a powerful mouthfeel of gun powder. Full-bodied and with good carbonation, nice liquorish aftertaste. Long finish. A little too sweet but a killer beer overall.
