330ml bottle.
Pours a deep clear mahogany with a fluffy off-white head that settles down but never really goes away. Nice sheets of lace on the sides of the glass. Wonderful nutty yeast aroma with earthy leafy, slightly tobacco-like hops, rich bready malt and a touch of toasted grain. The rich malt hinted at in the aroma is surprisingly subdued in the flavor; instead it is in intriguing symphony of grassy hops, dry grain, and a bit of dried fruit (cherries/cranberries) with a medium hop bitterness lingering in the background. Medium-bodied with an average, fairly bubbly palate. Pretty nice stuff.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 Thanks to Jason. The beer pours to a darker brown body with an off-white head. The aroma is strange syrupy dark fruits. The flavor is sweet yeasty maple syrup, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. Perhaps I’m on crack... The palate is medium bodied, very easy drinking, fits the beer well. 7, 3, 7, 4, 14 = 3.5
Re-rate: 11.2 oz bottle. The beer is still the same color. Turbid looking. Long lasting white head. The aroma is heavy dark fruits, effervescent mineral water, deep bready malts, light cinnamon, pears. The flavor is sweet dark yeast, mineral water, ginger, yellow raisins, and maple syrup. The palate is medium bodied and nicely textured. This beer is really easy drinking.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle shared by Jason. Hazy brown body, small white head. Dry chocolate, rasin, fig, and a suprisingly bright orange oil. Muddled, sweet flavor. Chocolate/munich base with dry wood and water chestnuts on top. The finish exhibits some spicy leaf hops. A good beer but no one part of the flavor (or combination thereof) really make it interesting.

090508 on bottle (thanks jason) Pours a mahogony color w/ a thick off white well laced head. Very yeasty aroma bread dough some light syruppy toffee pieces and maybe a touch of fig. Palate is well coated and lightly creamy smooth to the finish lightly carbonated, just feels good in my mouth. Flavor is sweeter some nice carmels or syrups fig/plum notes touches of bread dough. Very smooth and quite good.

Light brown with orange hints. Off-white soapy head. Thick sweet belgian aroma. Very nice. Overripe melting banana. Some chocolate hints. Flavor thins out a little with some dry dark malt, fruit, chocolate, belgian spice. Pretty good stuff.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 7, 2006
11.2 oz. brown bottle. Freshness date of 08 17 08 on back label. Pours out a deep dark chocolate brown, with some ruby highlights. Volumous tan colored head is thick enough to float a bottle cap on. Aromas are of dark roasted malts, slight coffee notes, dried fruits, yeasty bread, and sweet malts. Flavors are about the same as the aromas. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Almost a meal in a glass. Alcohol is well hidden.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 11.2oz Best before end 08 07 09. Pours a cloudy red brown with a moderate, light beige head. Aroma of nutty dust, dark fruits, very light soy, maple syrup, brown sugar and toffee. Kinda reminds me a little of a dubbel. Taste is much the same with a some tartness at the beginning, light bitterness midway through, and into a dry finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2006
A deep clear red pour with one hell of a huge head that soon fades to a small lasting off white covering. Aroma is rich and malty with a slightly carbonated dried fruit taste.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Air-cooled on our hotel room outside windowsill in Brussels. Caramel color. Creamy palate. Some dark fruit, brown sugar sweetness. Will be worth trying again after being cooled by some high-tech refrigeration.

Bottle. Poours a reddish, coppery brown with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is yeast, with spices, and floral notes. Flavor is excellent, with brown sugar, spices, caramel, and roasted oak. Mouthfeel is a bit bubbly, with the carbonation coming through nicely.
