Finally entering all my "Better Know a Style: Belgian Strong Ale" tasting 07 results. Very yeasty, dark fruit aroma with some nuttiness as well. Looked very nice as well with a dark brown color and large off-white head. Flavor was moderate malt sweet with some spice and dark fruit, also some biscuit in there as well. A nice med body with some carb.

Bosskie (700) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 33cl 8% bought in Belgium. Heavy, very dark, opaque beer, dark-brown red when held to the light. Bubbly with a creamy head. A bitter yeasty, leathery, woody smell with hints of lemon and an alcoholic background. Bitter-sweet taste, with the sweet dominating, with a burnt hop, caramel, chocolate palate. Well balanced, quietly fizzy with a nice warm, round aftertaste. Good quality in the Rochefort tradition. A little bit too alcoholic on the smell.

Cloudy mahogany with a small off-white head. Malt, dark fruits, vanilla, and musty spice in the aroma. Heavy malt backbone with spun sugar, corriander, raisins, and a sherry-like alcohol flavor. Dense, sticky mouthfeel. A little too thick and sweet for me.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours an amber/brown, with a thick sweet palate and a tatse, that while not as complex and favoursome as the 12, still has enough rich dark fruits and sweet malts to be a very good example of the style.

Flaske. Superlæækker, og til min glæde faldt den også i svogerens smag. Han svor der straks skulle placeres et par i køleskabet. Han er kok og har altid svoret til vin.

Visible sediment abounds when this beer is poured. A strong aroma rises quickly. Very flavorful, with constant changes. A predominately sweet maltiness throughout and a long-lasting finish.

Brownish red in color, medium head. Lacing is sticky and long lasting. Taste is moslty caramel like most of these styles. Maybe a slight hint of cherry thrown in. Nice beer overall.

Dan, my puppy really digs this beer. Poured a thimbles worth in a glass and she attacked the glass with a vengeance. She then went after the bottle trying to lick inside the neck. Took some pics and I may change my profile pic to one of the photos. Poured a dark, dark brown that seemed to have a purple tinger to it. Poured into my delerioum tremens glass and had to space out the pour because a big, frothy head that was stained a slight khaki. Nose was aromatically malty and sweet. Flavor was a superb dubel. Lots of rich malts. Belgian sugars provided a nice solid base to this beer. Dark fruits such as prunes and dark cherries. Bits of dark grabes and dried raisins too. Could not pick out any heat from the alcohol at all but it sure hit m pretty good. Vinuous and heavy mouthfel that did a great job just coating the cheeks.
