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

Bottle. Pours amber, medium head. Nice fruity flavor with a crisp hoppy touch and that special yeasty belgian character. A little too sweet in my opinion.

bottle@bar: I find the glass to be way cooler than the beer itself, the glass is really a big part of the experience, sweet malts, caramel, some spice, brown, sugar, raisins, slightly bitter, the focus is on the caramel & malt, medium body

The novalty of the glass ruins the fine aroma and taste of this Belgium beer. It poors with a thick head butt has a great after taste.

Grima (2176) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2011
corked 750ml bottle from City Concorde, Bertrange, Luxembourg!
The beer is amber colored, slightly cloudy, with fine, small and durable foam! Smells very caramelly malty, slightly bitter hoppy. Starts malty and bitter, with lots of caramel in the background. The middle part shows a pleasant hop aroma, which also turn out very bitter. The finish is malty caramelly, again very bitter, with light hop notes. Very intense and delicious beer!

rosenbergh (8285) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2011
330 ml bottle. From Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Clear amber colour with average size off-white head. Caramel malt and spices in aroma. Strong sweet caramel, strong maltiness, spices and alcohol in flavour. Alcohol warms. Half the fun is the strange glass but I didn’t have that...

Pershing (486) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Amber in color with a thin beige head that quickly diminishes. Floral hop aroma with a medium sweet malty taste. Alcohol is hidden really well. Nice filling sticky finish.

terefere (267) - Durham, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle 33cl, ABV 8.4%. Red/brown color, fizzy head quickly diminishing, clear & sparkling. Aroma of malt, caramel, cereal, alcohol, hint of citrus. Sweet&Bitter with an astringent/alcoholic finish, some alcohol in the taste. I remember it being better than this.

juanenka (256) - valladolid, SPAIN - NOV 18, 2013
Botella. Presencia marrón con corona poco persistente. Aroma maltoso, levaduras y frutos secos. En boca es dulzona y alcohólica, con dejes de levadura acabando dulce y poco seca

b3shine (6379) - Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; a transparent light copper with thin off-white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast with a sweet backbone and some spices. Tastes like it smells, only less balanced, with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

Chudwick (2380) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2013
11.2oz bottle (8.4% ABV per the label) - Nose is caramel and leather. Sip adds bread, earthy notes, and booze. fairly sweet. odd flavors. I’m making the same face I made when I saw the last 5-10 minutes of A.I. (Spielberg/Kubrick movie). I want to like it, but it’s way weird.
