Poured dirty bronze, a bit hazy, with a thick, creamy, sturdy white head. Good retention and very sticky lace. Wonderful complex aroma, full of malt, fruit, figs and cherries, brown sugar, smoke, peat, earth, yeast, alcohol and floral hops. Flavors were sweet malt, caramel & toffee, dark fruit, grain, french bread, cherries, apples, lemons, yeast, alcohol, raisins and sherry. Great creamy mouthfeel, solid, slightly bitter finish.

Klar belgisk duft, der er domineret af gær. Smuk ravgylden farve med et rimelig holdbart skum. Smagen er fyldig med malt og gær i centrum, fint balanceret af diskret humle. Supergod belgier

It's surprisingly intense, with a fruity and zesty palate which finishes quickly leaving you wanting more. And yes, definately drink it in the special glass.

Draught. Deep amber almost brown in color. Virtually no head at all. The nose is malty and candied fruit. Slightly dry finish, but has a decent medium body with the right amount of carbonation to carry the taste where it needs to go. The glassware / presentation is just silly

red color with a medium head and has tons of floaties in it. Aroma of yeast, fruits and spices. Raisin flavor and you can taste the heavier alcohol but not over powering. Leaves you with a clean aftertaste.

On draught @ Brasserie V in Madison, served in a Kwak glass (very cool glass). Pours a slightly cloudy amber with an off-white head. Aromas of caramel, fruits and cinnamon. Sweet fruity flavor with slight hops bitterness and a long sweet finish, medium carbonation. Good stuff, but not spectacular.

330ml, 8.4%. Dark ale with small head when poured that disappears quickly. Sweet and strong. Barley malt and hops are dominant flavours. Enjoyable

I had this in the traditional glass, an excellent beer with a velvet like mouthfeel and sweetish malty fruit notes. Very enjoyable.
