JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2007
11.2 oz bottle - Clear dark brown/ruby red color with medium sized creamy off white head. Aroma is full of cherries, hints of caramel, bit of vanilla, dates, figs, red grapes. Flavor is malty, fair amount of light caramel, bit of dates and oak, with a relatively sweet finish.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Cloudy dark amber with a thick, tight white head. Malty body with a sweet, plumlike finish.Notes of raisin, candied sugar, wood. Very pleasant lingering aftertaste. Very full on the palate. Very good brew.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Nice, rich malty flavor. Just a bit shy of being as good as the 12. Definitely worth a try if you like the style.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2009 Dark burgundy body. Initially large head that quickly diminishes to a long-lasting thin off-white layer. Aroma of toasted bread and coffee-shop. Taste has a lot of toasted malts, light chocolate (not the dark bitter type), some nuts. The beer is only moderately fruity with some raisins and maybe plums flavours. Very little hop presence and almost no bitterness. No alcohol flavour at all. This is a rather smooth round beer, not aggressive at all, with a soft foamy body. As good as it may be it lacks something to make it stand out, to give it its own character. High quality, reliable, well put together but ultimately unexceptional. The Mazda 6 of Belgian beer.

bergface (56) - madison, Alabama, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Dark dark beer. Head poured over two fingers high (and I drink mine out of schooners, which look like giant goblets- they work well but dont have the slight taper). Not as bitter as many trappist ales, but also bit less overall body. It still has complexity though, a bit of caramel sweetness, raisins or perhaps fresh grapes, and maybe even a bit of citrus. Easily drinkable and alcohol is well-hidden.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Poured from bottle...Murky brown with even an almost greenish tint to it. Very little head. Smell was sweet, yeasty. Taste was VERY light. Not what I was expecting...Tasted like water’d down apple cider...I really could have drunk it straight down. I preferred the number 6, I think. This one was a bit light for me...Maybe a bad bottle? As I detcted no after taste, no bitterness, nothing...

11.2 oz bottle- Poured a hazy, mirky brown color w/a moderate tan head & good lacing which lasted thru the brew. Light floral Belgian aroma. Clean crisp fruity flavor w/a touch of sweetness. Traces of lemon/lime, cotton candy, & spice. Light to medium finish w/ some malt bitterness. Good Ale, very drinkable. Alcohol was well hidden.
