Bottle 33 cl. Creamy head, brown hazy body. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet not very complex.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Dark ruby brown with a light soda tan head that hangs around for a while. A lightly wooden aroma paired with a sweet caramel seems to contrast with the appearance of this dark brown ale. Nice and creamy in the mouth with a smooth roasted character that is followed by a small amount of bitterness. Very drinkable.

DuffMan (8062) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2008
Dark brown, with a shade of red. Malty toasty, brown sugar aroma. The same on the palate, pretty straightforward really. A bit of yeasty fruit. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, and the finish is sweet. I don’t know, but this just didn’t ring my bell. On a different note, it’s pretty funny that the last three ratings are from Albertans! How can you tell Petrus beers just arrived in Alberta?!

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle. Very reddy dark brown with thin light brown head. Chalky cocoa marshmallow aroma. Tastes more like a dopplebock or milk chocolate stout. Lots of chocolate, not the usual Belgian flavours. Still an OK tasty brew.

pintbypint (2977) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
330ml brown bottle. Chestnust brown pour, quite heady - tan coloured foam. Good creamy lacing left behind. Sweet malt aroma, light toffe/brown sugar. Initally sweet on the tounge, brown sugar, light raisin, caramel. Chewy, medium body. Mild carbonation. Nice ale, a bit sweet, but quite drinkable.

skoisirius (1880) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle and tap. Another mediocre brew from Petrus. Nice sweet fruity malts aspect though. Taste a bit more like a bock almost because of the thin body.

shrubber85 (9138) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle. Brown sugar and prune aroma. Dark brown with a thin film of a head. Strong brown sugar/toffee malt and prune/raisin flavor with light astringency. Nice drinking beer.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
From the bottle, pours deep ruddy brown with a cream colored head. The nose is beautiful, with raisins, brown sugar, caramel. The flavor is on the fruity side, with plum and dried fruits, along with a bit of toffee and brown sugar. Quite a creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

nearbeer (4239) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2008
33 cl. Nearly opaque mahogany with ruby highlights and a two-finger lasting head. Aroma is earth-spiced raisin-date bread, molasses, and caramel icing. Flavor is similar to the aroma, with a finish of slight sour cherry, cumin, and brown sugar. Medium body is smooth, acidic-tingly, and finishes dryish. Excellent dessert beer.
