Pours a transparent copper brown with a stringy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel malt and a touch of bready Belgian yeast. Starts fairly full and caramely malty sweet with some drier, doughy yeasty notes and a touch of coriander spice with effervescent carbonation throughout. A fairly tasty Belgian strong ale.

Pours a hazy amber brown color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, toast, honey, and some fruit. Flavor is malty, caramel, honey, brown sugar, fruit, and a peppery finish.

750 mL bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas (50% off...woohoo) Aroma has some light brown sugar as well as some annoying plastic notes, too. Yeast notes, just very plasticized. Not very appealing. Moderately hazy dark amber/burgundy body with a light tan head that is small to medium. Starts a bit sweet with some sugary chocolate notes. Becomes quite grainy and chewy and cereal-like in the middle. Smooth-bodied. Very little in the way of hops. A bit of light bubblegum late. Not bad, but nothing really entertaining either.

If Samiclaus had a light version this would be it....nice blend of spice, malt, Belgian yeast, and ripe fruit. Pours dark amber and dark cherry in a goblet. Well done and easy drinking goodness.

Poured from 11.2oz bottle a murky brown with medium sized tan head. Nose is somewhat metallic like steel wool, backed with dark fruit, yeast, and brown sugar. Flavor is roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, and a little bread. The palate has a short sweetness then a drying yeastiness. The flavor disappears quickly, almost too quickly. The flavor is good but fleeting. Overall decent but could use more spiciness or carbonation to carry the flavor further.

RSRIZZO (1873) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
Aroma is a bread like scent with some spicy back tones. Color is solid hazy amber with good carbonation and a thick frothy head. Taste is thin and roasted. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down foamy. Finish comes in with a thin roasted flavor and just a hint of fruity yeast flavor that is followed up by a mellow bitterness. In the after taste the roasted flavor turns sweet then the bitterness comes back leaving it dry. I feel its a little weak for a Belgian Strong but not a bad brew.

Had last night at the NorCal tasting. It was an attractive beer in color and head, but I wish I had taken better notes. I just remember that this one was a bit bland and boring. Wish I could be more thorough. :-( Sorry.

Bottle shared by goldtwins. Pours a hazy light brown with light off-white head. Aroma is odd to say the least, with vegetables figuring way too prominently; cabbage comes to mind first. Upon tasting, the vegetables disappear and transform into overly sweet malts and some booziness. Average mouthfeel with a sweet, alcoholic finish. Not a fan of this one.

Poured a hazy bown with a beige head. the aroma had notes of toffee, yeast, and sweet brown sugar. Sweet malt flavor that was very short and followed up by dry yeastiness. Mild to moderate bitterness and some warmth on the finish. Medium bodied.
