UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 A delicious beer with a full body and just the right amount of carbonation. There are hints of fruit and blended spices in just the right balance. This is one of my favorite beers available to me.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 Cloudy brown with a considerable off white head. Very lively aromas of prunes, raisins and maybe even a hint of cherries. It is creamy with the dark fruits in the taste as well. I also taste chocolate and butter. This is great!

Again, this one was not as good as I thought it would be. Not as smooth or as flavorful as most, average compared to others of the genre. The sweet malt and spiced tastes are there, on my palate they never lingered enough or materialized into an enjoyable flavor. I am not sure why it seemed stagnant from start to finish. A bad bottle perhaps? The dude on the bottle hyped me up too much I guess, should have been better.

This poured out a dark thick opaque brown color with a good sized beige head that has great retention. This also left a wonderful coating of lace around the glass as it was consumed. Big complex aroma here with dark sweet fruit malts standing out the most with notes of alcohol, some spice and yeast. There is more going on than that but I am unable to tell exactly what the wonderful scents are, I will defiantly need to get a few more of these to enjoy and analyze. Up front with the taste is sweet fruity malt flavors mingling with a bit of spice. The taste is very smooth and it defiantly warms you up a good deal. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with excellent carbonation and a dry finish, basically perfect. Drinkability is only hindered by ones tolerance for 10% beers besides that its so smooth and delicious I could try and drink this all day. Excellent beer that is recommended to everyone.

Brownish red color, aroma that is very complex, full of abbey type malts and the smell of wine casks, thick texture, so many things going on in the taste, fig cherry chocolate banana, alcohol sneaks up on you. On my top 20 list

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights and a thick tan head that lasted for the duration of the sampling (1hr.). Rich pungent aromas of plums, rasins, toffee, alcohol, and bready yeasts. The flavour was rich as well with rasins, plums, spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) belgian yeast with some alcohol burn in the finish. All in all a deicious brew.

Deep brown with ruby highlights supporting a creamy tall mocha head.
Rich sweet alcoholic aroma carries a nutty caramel with cookie dough and spicy pepper. Sweet complex flavor. No hops. A bit of tart wine with a nice long finish.
