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 (8057) - 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.

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 (624) - 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.

a very pleasant strong ale. very rich and warming. Nice lasting head, mild, well integrated malt flavors with a slightly spicy, fairly crisp finish.

Zeswaft (1482) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Tastes like every other Belgian I’ve had. The only thing this beer has going for it is the crazy ass conveyance thing it’s served in. Looks like some type of science experiment.

ghawener (1527) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle: Red orange colour, small head, aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is bittersweet with a nice malt presence.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Fine off-white head, unclear orange body with sediments. Malty and chocolaty aroma with plenty of spices and bisquit. Sweet and a bit alcoholic in the flavor, caramel and spices with a hoppy finish. Sharp, tasty and warming. Thanks Jens!

Amber to light brown in color. Small off white head with good steady lacing. Nice malty aroma. Malty in flavor and on palate. Good Belgian.
