I donít see what the fuss is about this beer. Itís nice, but all of the favors are subdued. Didnít like it that much and wasnít worth $7.50 a bottle.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Bottle courtesy of styles (as a bonus no less): Murcky deep brown with a medium tan head that slowly fades to a ring. Aroma is salty raisins, caramel, faint hops, grass, candy sugar, fig, prune, dark fruit, chocolate, carrots. Body is medium to full, medium to high levels of carbonation, quite thick overall. Taste is sweet grains, carrot, sweet malts, caramel, honey, molasses, prune, raisin, plum, dandelions, spice. Finishes medium dry with a stinging feeling on the tongue, giving off notes of honey-coated grains, carrots, and stale caramel. Very balanced not only in terms of sweet vs bitter, but also carbonation, palate, and finish.

Thick, rich, and strong. It is very complex flavored with spices and dried fruit (Iíd say prune). A good winter drink.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 bottled, dark brown color with little foam. the aroma is of caramel and alcohol w/ a hint of fruit. full bodied, yet a very drinkable beer for its strength, and is very complex w/ nice aftertaste. very impressed.

Wow, very sweet. Thickest Belgian Iíve had, with perhaps the exception of La Trappe Quad. Very nice, very complex.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 So many different flavours coming at you. Not over spiced, little malt and subtle nut finish. Just enough carbonation, with a beautiful coloured head. And itís actually fairly easy to find too! Thanks for nothing Westvletteren!

Bottle. Well, this one lived up to itís reputation. Pours dark walnut color, cloudy and opaque with a small off-white head. Rich malty aroma, lots of spice - nutmeg and cloves prominant - hints of maple and molasses with oaky notes as well. Flavor is also sweet and spicy, very complex with peppery notes and noticible alcohol. Smooth, full mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. A pleasure!

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2005 Ok. So I live in a beer desert. UNTILL, tonight. I finally made it up to this other place, Paradise Alley. Phenominal selection! w00t. Pricey, but w00t! I paid $11 for this one. Anyhow, coca foamy head that leveled nicely. Some floaty business all up in this glass.(cellar temp) Smell is alchohol, some floral, dark fruits, plum, malt. Very very pleasent. Taste carries a complex, welll balanced arrangement of dark fruits(plum), licorice, some spices and peppermint with a malty fetch. The breath-out has such a vibed breath of alchohol. damn! Palate feels earth and cool. after minute aftertaste is a little sour but not bad at all. I am glad I stayed in on such a cold night for this. Even if it is Friday! Listening to New Orderís "Ceremony".

Foamy head. Strong alcohol and fruity dessert aroma. A bit sour. Very week malty taste. Strong alcohol taste. Not my style....
