UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 8/29/07 bottle - Dark brown with a foamy head that dies down. Very sweet almost musty flavor, with a strong aftertaste. Not bitter at all. Not what I was expecting but not bad at all. I didn’t expect fruit based on the other reviews, will give it another go some time.

blklab2007 (2062) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 21, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 beer poured a mahogany red in color with a huge burst of carbination on the pour leaving a three finger head that settled down to a nice thin layer with tons of bubbles. smell is plumbs, dark fruit, malts, and some Belgian spice perhaps from the yeast. taste is powered over the tongue from the carbination with plumbs and dark fruits, a little sweetness, good spices, little funky sour, and very smooth on the tongue. the beer overall is pleasant to drink, has a good body, flavorful but not over the top.

Despite the lukewarm reviews here, this is a great beer. Nice and rich. Heavy malt. I’ve only had the chance to buy it in Belgium. In Michigan, we didn’t get it. And in Missouri, don’t hold your breath.

Caramel notes. Dark brown body. Strong taste with the 6.5% ABV not masking itself in anyway. Goes down smooth but has a harsh aftertaste. Reddish color.

Stefano (1891) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2007
Ruby red colour with a foamy beige head. Aroma is fruity, musty, and alcohol. Flavors are strong and fruity with dried stone fruit and brownsugar. Finish is long and fruity. Solid brew.

andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2007
330ml bottle. from the bottle, it pours similar to a red ale, but with a deeper, more intense core. bountiful head, with notable lacing. aromas: dates, plum, and other dark, rich fruits like black succulent cherries and ripe raisins. a touch of oak and faint anise is also noticed. the flavor yields dark fruit juices, pleasant and rich allspice, and faint caramel. the finish continues with the plum sensation onto the back of the palate. on top of all that, the price is right.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2007
It poured a medium brown with a thin, tan head; had a slight carbonated note to it. Aroma was a mix cola and fruits. Flavor was initially sweet with dried fruits but was balanced out with a acidic quality to it. Carbonation was present, but minimal.

Nez malté de caramel légèrement rôti et terreux, de levures fruitées (cerises, léger de dates, notes de raisins), léger de sucre brun ainsi que des notes de noix, de pain et de chocolat.

Goût de levures fruitées sucrées aux faibles notes sûres (cerises et raisins, léger de figues, notes de pommes et de prunes) avec de petites notes boisées lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel assez sucré, légèrement rôti (notes brûlées) et aux notes terreuses, léger de toffee et de sucre brun (aussi des traces de sirop d’érable) ainsi que des notes de chocolat, de sucre bonbon et de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux et terreux avec un léger goût de noix rôties asséchantes et d’alcool très doux (rhum). Post-goût moyen-long aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de rôti, de houblon herbeux avec des notes de chocolat et de noix ainsi qu’une légère aigreur fruitée (moût de cerises et de raisins, pelures de prunes et de pommes).
