On tap at Lucky Baldwinís Belgian Beer Festival 2006 in Pasadena. Dark, bloody amber with a large beige head. Excellent lacing. The nose is dry.. notes of chocolate(!), prune, and spices, with a vague soapy astringency (maybe the glass wasnít rinsed properly?). Big malts up front in the flavor, roasty and chocolate again w/molasses. Spices and dark fruits. Lightly bitter. Finish is brief and quite sweet. Highly drinkable but the palate is a weak point.. watery and too flat. I would definitely pick up this beer on tap again.

From the bottle. Pours a beautiful deep brown with golden highlights, abundantly carbonated.

This is a perfectly nice beer, but itís not a world-beating Belgian strong.The aroma is brown bread baking, molassas, plums, and a sort of musty cellar sourness; the flavor comes through with a big taste of dark malt, slightly sweet, spicy, some nutmeg, belgian yeast, a curious hint parmasean cheese.

Bottle. Frothy white excellent mostly lasitng head. OK aroma but a bit week flavor. Not the best Belgian strong ale, but still good beer.

Zeswaft (1397) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Pours out murky brown with ever flowing yeast chunks. Head is off-white and incongruent. Aroma is figgy and yeasty. Flavor is much of the same and malty. Not as much fruit flavor as Iíve seen in BSAís. Seems more like a tripel. Body seems medium to light. In the end itís a pretty good tasting Belgian. Kicks the ass of the Rochefort 6 I just had. Wish it was more "complex" though.

thewolf (11237) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
Strong smell. Good whitish head that dissappears quickly. A fruity powerfu taste with slight bitterness. Quite sweet but with a long, fresh fruity aftertaste with slight malty undertones.

gilvanblight (801) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
Strong scent that I picked up past arms length, very sweet and very aromatic. Light head hugs the glass over a very dark pour. Bit of alcohol in the taste at first then bitter with a clean finish. Swear I tasted Prune in this one. I found it got more sour the more I drank it.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Aroma is lots of apple juice, though gains sweet malt and spicyness as it warms. Pours deep, ruddy brown with a huge head. Flavor is very full and complex, much like that of a Quad, with lots of plum, sour apple, a bit of puckering from the palate. Interesting, velvety mouthfeel. Nice beer.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Moderately malty, medium to strong molasses like sweetness. Light yeast notes. Hints of brown sugar. Medium light body. Small head that lingers the entire sitting. If this didnít cost me $11.99 for a four pack Iíd be putting these in my fridge more often.
