Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aromas has dark Belgium sugar, hefty Belgium malt presence, some earthiness and some spice. Very thick aroma, but not cloying. Thick mouthfeel with sharper than expcected carbonation. Taste has lots of dark malt, dark sugar and generous earthiness. As it warms further dark fruits getting even more dominant as well as a spice aspect and some anise. Finish has sharp carbonation then spiciness from the hops mixing with the thick malt. Further down the malt takes some caramel aspects. Excellent beer.

This is SO big and chewy! The alcohol is really hidden well. Complex woody flavors. Malty - somewhat dry/tart aftertaste however, hence the deduction on palate and overall. Still impressive. Not an everyday drinker, obviously.

Bottle-Just great, I mean great--I’m sure I’ll just duplicate the 1000 other reveiwers. Good frothy head with sediments found in it. The color of the beer was almost the color of raisins, but a bit darker. The aroma had loads of fruit, especially plum. The taste, well it was perfect, with no notice of the alcohol.

aroma has hints of red wine; nice light brown - dark amber tones with heavy carbonation. initial alcohol taste, but malt flavour quickly takes over including milk chocolate, molasses and hazelnut overtones. definitely for sipping and not for the faint of heart.

Pours very dark, creamy and thick yellow/tan head, very complex aroma. Flavor hides the alcohol well for a quad, very complex, hint of bananas and other types of fruit, sweet, no notice of hops at all. An awesome beer, one of my favorites.

From my archives, February ’06. Pours dark with a thick head. Aroma of many types of fruit with some yeast. Taste is the same but alcohol is a bit overpowering. I like the 8 better.
