JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2010
Hazy brown beer with a huge off white creamy head, aroma is sweet and slightly Hefeweizen like. Taste is malty with a slight spicy/roasty finish.

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
Pours with a huge beige head and a muddy brown colour, plenty of carbonation. Aroma is a nice mix of malts, hops, and alcohol in a good blend. Taste is heavy on the malts with a heavy alcohol finish. Surprisingly nice mouthfeel for such a heavy brew.

330ml from IPB
Appearance : Deep amber with big foamy and creamy brown head. Extensive lacing.
Aroma : Spicy and yeasty. Slightly earthy and mineral with light notes of banana. Quite nutty. Light roasty/caramel/bready all mixed up together... Caramel gets more up front as it warms up.
Taste : Yeasty and spicy. Some caramel. Finish is spicy and slightly bitter. Rather warm and dry. Notes of banana on the finish.
Overall : Get better as it warms up. Nice banana and caramel notes on the nose. Quite complex. Not much alcohol. soft carbonation makes it quite drinkable despite the high abv. At first I thought it was an avereage beer but it really gets better as I’m drinking it. Quite spicy for my taste but I think it goes well with this beer. Awesome nose. Great sweet finish with a bitter backbone. Reminds me a bit of the Abbaye des Rocs Triple Impériale which I liked a lot too.

jaghana (5487) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A brown ale with huge head. Smell is grassy, hay and very yeast like. This very sweet beer has spicy notes, old vibe notes, body is medium to high, finish is dry and tartric. Small acidity, and metallic notes, quite yeasty. Not bad but nit really balanced.

Bottled. Pours hazy and deep amber with a creamy, mostly lasting, off-white head. Fair lacings. Soft carbonation. Nose of roasted malt, yeast and with hop notes. Medium sweet flavour with light roasted malt, bread and caramel. Medium bodied, Oily texture. More dry and slightly bitter finish with some alcohol. OK.

KyotoLefty (9295) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 3, 2010
Medium brown color with orange and a high, fine, pillowy head. Aroma of pears, caramel, plums. Rich sweet flavor with a tangy edge. Fruity, slightly aged and oxidized, with spicy cake and a strongly hoppy, bitter, even astringent finish. Very minerally as well. Rather light body. Tasty and challenging, though not spectacular.

lefossoyeur (587) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2010
Pours a hazy amber with a lasting medium white head that leaves a persisting lace. Strong aromas of pineapple and something that reminds me of chalk, probably something mineral from the water. Full body, very fruity, again it turns all around a strong pineapple character combined with some caramel notes. Finishes on a light malty note, almost refreshing. Alcohol very well hidden, altough it comes out after 3-4 sips. Nice beer if for the pineapple character that I found almost annoying. But overall a decent belgian strong ale.
