I like this Belgian strong because it seems to be more smooth on the palate. The texture is silky and the flavors lean more towards tha sweet side, toffee and caramel. Seems like there is a good malt back bone. The alcohol adds a great warming in the finish. A great brew I must have again.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2004
Murky muddy amber/bronze colour with a light brown head that was short lived. Hints of caramel in the taste as well as lime and butterscotch. Sourness on the finish but overall a good beer.

Out of most of the Belgian ales I had in the country, I felt I could never go wrong with this one. Poured into its unique glass (not sure what its called, but has a round bottom and top connected by a thin stem. Very interesting to drink from). dark amber color with a small tan head. Soft and sweet taste. Classic Belgian ale.

madsberg (10142) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2003
Bottled: Amber coloured. Not much head. Yeast, malt, spices and alcahol in the nose. Sweet, malty and spicy flavour. Has a sweetish aftertaste. Served in the prober glassware, this is a funny beer. Like it.

larsniclas (5586) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2003
Bottled. Golden amber. Rather thin aroma, maybe some yeast. Sweet, yeasty flavor; almost like a weissbier.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2003
Orange colour with a good creamy white head. Apricot, coriander, banana and yeast in aroma. Spicy, sugary flavour. Hints of lemon and alcohol. Quite dry and spicy finish.

Choos (595) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2003
Aroma is a very gentle malt and alcohol. Appearance is just plain ugly, thought I had a dodge bottle until I read some of the other ratings, looks like stong tea dark orangy/brown with big semi transparent flecks. Don't know if I will finish this it looks just so awful. Flavour is malty/caramel sweet with a hint of citrus giving way to metal.

The Etruscan (506) - Tuscany, ITALY - DEC 6, 2003
Beige weak head. Deep amber color. Aroma is malty with a pronounced alcoholic tone. Flavor is malty too, but here alcool content is very well hidden, ending in a caramelly finish. Medium bodied

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Thin head with very good carbonation. Aroma of spices mingled with peaches and apricots. Color is a cloudy orange. Flavor is nice with caramel, fruit, spices and is very tingley in the mouth. Finish is smooth and bubbly with a slight spicy lingering aftertaste. A decent belgian but nothing special.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2003
Usually served in a "foot" glass, with wooden holder. Sweet, dark malt taste. Very yeasty.
