Bottle, March 07 - Thanks Omhper!! Great raisiny, plums, oranges, cake, sugarish aroma. Taste is deep, rich, liquorice, fruity, spicy with alcohol exceptionally well hidden and a touch of nutmeg. Deep, almost black, brownish color, opaque, some red hues and a very nice beige, creamy, lasting head. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, really quaffable for it´s size, surprising dry finnish. A piece of art.

The aroma of this beer is ridiculous! I am very pleased with the smell. Smells frutier than the 8 version. Very pleased to say that I am already impressed. The color is a very deep brown, with little head, but seems very good. The alcohol sits very nice on the tongue, and the beer finishes smoothly. The beer is sweet, and fruity, as to what specifically the fruits are I am confused, but it doesn’t matter. This beer is very complete. I am going to say that the fruit is a dark fruit: raisins, pruins, something that would make a thick juice. A nice beer, and probably one of my favorites. I hate to rate this higher than my Imperial Stouts, but until I try one better I will not say differently.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours dark ruby red forming a very large light brown foamy head. Smells lovely, plums, malts that resonate brown sugars. Flavor is of heaven, geez those Belgiums are masters! As a lover of IPA’s, this simply seduces one away. Hints of prunes, lovely malts, and nuts of sorts. A complete beer that one must enjoy and experience. I love my American micro brews, but those Belgium lads have something here to behold.

It was a choice between this and the Avery Mephistopheles Impy Stout for #900. I’ve been looking for this for quite some time and ran into it in Tokyo a few weeks ago, higher powers are obviously at work so who am I to go against them? Anyways, on to the beer! Dark brown, opaque, loads of "floaties" massive foamy light brown/tan head. Active carbonation, the bubbles form a honeycomb structure under the foamy head, interesting looking! Sweet malts, toffee, prunes, honey a hint of allspice in the nose. Smooth & creamy, sweet toffee & raisins, like a new flavor of ice cream topped with spiced rum, cotton candy, traces of hazelnut....there’s so many flavors at once plus the alcohol sneaks in after the swallow to make its presence known. Thick & chewy, a delicious dessert beer and another fine example of why Belgian Quads are one of (if not my absolute) favorite style. A fitting beer to mark my 900th rating as well as celebrating my new position.

Tranquillity (1695) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2007
Small bottle. Dark brown, hazy colour. Cloudy small beige head. The aroma is extremely complex. Coffee, toffee and more sweet stuff. Taste sticky oil with liqurice. Very foramy, long bitterness in the finish.

Enjoyit (3713) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2007
Deep brown of color with an off-white head. An aroma of dark dried fruits as raisins and plums, nice sweet and spicy. A flavor with alcohol, plums and raisins.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pours a dark syrupy brown with a medium light tan head. Wonderful aromas are stirred up, banana, dark fruit, grapes, and sweet malts. The taste is quite masterful. Very sharp, heavy dark fruit, sweet malts, and defined alcohol presence immediately hit you. Get some sugar, and a touch of caramel, in the finish. Very nice mouthfeel, full bodied, just exquisite!

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - MAR 23, 2007
Brown, maple syrup color with a long tan head. Spicey and fruity very complex took some time to develop its fully complexity. Let it breath for a while. Pepper, cloves, and fruit. Beatiful.

This was the best beer I have ever tasted. Full of flavor and complexity. Truly, a work of art. I can only imagine a better beer.

Arayaga2 (2048) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Opaque brown with huge tan head. Aroma is darkly fruity with raisin, plum and even a hint of cola. Extremely well blended wave of tastes from cherry to cola to booze and on to yeasty and salty. Alcohol is mostly hidden, and carbonation is perhaps a bit too much. $5.50/11.2oz
