poured a opaque brown hue with a nice white head. Aroma was a mix of many fruits and alcohol but also seemed to have a slight coppery hint to it. Initally this beer had fruit notes (currants, banana) but a mild bubblegum flavor appeared. There was some coppery notes in the flavor as well. Otherwise a good beer. It seemed to have nice carbonaton.

12 oz Bottle: Pours a dirty brown color, and by dirty Iím referring to the yeasty bits floating about. Nice carbonation and tastes of roasted malts, raisins and figs. A bit of a spicy aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
~12oz. bottle. Deep garnet colored and relatively clear, some yeasty floaties dance around. Big and long lived beige head. Fantastic lacing. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Plenty of sugarplums dance in my nose. Quite rich. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation that doesnít work over the palate. Malty and pit fruit flavors, alcohol isnít really detectible for me. A touch thin in the finish perhaps but overall a really nice Belgian Strong.

Big dark fruit and malt aroma, taste is the same, fruit becomes a little tart in the middle, there is a bite on the tongue,it seems to be over carbonated,alcohol not much of a factor, very tastey brew

very dark piano colour. tastes like melted down violet crumble. stench of blue cheese and vegemite. rich, heavy and tasty, without getting out of control. full body with chocolate and honey sweetness, then a long gentle drying out with coriander and rum. perfect on a cold winterís night.
