Hop malt spiritus aroma at first. Then fruit and spices. Brown colour with excellent head and lacing. Strong malt flavour with fruit spices and spirit. Fizzy palate.

Bottle, Had a fermented sweet friut aroma anlong with alcohol. Brown body with tan head. Flavor had a fruit flavor that offset the alcohol. Smooth on the palate considering the aroma and flavor had alcohol presence throughout the beer.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours milky brown with lots of floaties, edium tan head that sticks tight to the glass. Nose is exceptional. Faint charcoal and cream contrasts with a powerful pumpkinspice and date combo. Creamy, complex flavor. Initial sweetness (dates, raisin, faint plum) rapidly gives way to very spicy flavors (cinnamon, cardamom, white pepper). Flavor would be higher rated if I could get over the intenseness of the alcohol, which toward the end is almost artificially strong. Ends with bitter chocolate. Chunky mouthfeel. Pretty dry, and would stand up absolutely to the best wines Iíve had, both in complexity and quality. Slight earth notes come out as the beer warms. Another belgian masterpiece.

I think i was still a rookie when i tried this FUEL. My first ABT/QUAD, too complex for a young tongue to be honest w/ u, but iíll try; very SMOOTH on tongue, chocolate, plums and something else i canít quite get( maybe because of the ABV 10.5%)

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
All Iím wondering is why it took me so long to find this one?!? Totaly outstanding in every way! Dark amber pour with a nice tanish head. Aroma was over the top rich in fruit and alcohol. If I didnít konw better, Iíd swear I was sniffing a liquor. Taste was hugely fruity, plums, raisins and maybe figs. Alcohol was present and warming but nicely balanced. Left an oily, sweet mouthfeel. Highly drinkable.

Poured a nice deep reddish brown with a light frothy head. The aroma is misleading with that of ethanol and caramel, but the flavors are primarily of fruit. Dark cherry, fig, raison, prune, and dates all coated with a smooth malty, caramel topping. A light hopping to balance it makes this a glass of beer I do not want to end. As the beer warms up it takes on new dimensions and flavor profiles, extremely complex.
