Absolutely great beer. Awesome flavors and aromas. Not quite as good as Abt 12, but still great.

Medium brown color, thin white head with bananas and chocolate. Reminded me of a chocolate sunday. Sweet malty mouth, chocolate, candy sugar, slighlty alcoholic and an alcoholic finish.

Oh, baby, I wasn’t expecting this to be that strong of a showing, but St. Bernie’s comes through again. Poured like a dubel, nice cloudy brown with a nice creamy white head. Man, the head just sat there the entire drink, perfect. The aroma was spicey and somewhat yeasty. The flavor was clearly not as malty rich as the quad, but dark fruits (plums) and cherries were present in the beginning. The spices came next as the beer finished with a bready, yeasty touch. Mouthfeel was carbonated but fairly creamy. The lacing is superb too.

Initial sense is a wonderfully spicy aroma. Lacey thin head that casually lies on top. Orange, caramel and rasin, with a finish thats got a tinge of sour thats not overpowering and just in balance with the residual sweetness mixed with orange remaining.

The aroma had molasses, coriander, dark fermented fruit, and was malty sweet. The beer poured a cloudy brown color with thin head and lacing. The flavor had caramel, molasses, dark fermented fruit, and slight spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and creamy.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2006
A brown red coloured beer, with an average off-white head and some light carbonation. Sweet malty and caramel aroma, rather soft, little yeasty with some alcohol. Full sweet taste, some light carbonation. Finish is bitter sweet, little alcoholic with an burned caramel taste. Strong and good beer, very enjoyable.

Habanero (3861) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
0.7 l bottle: Pours with a nice and creamy, beige head, a deep amber and cloudy body. Aroma of dried fruit, dark malt and caramel. This returns in the flavour. Medium to full bodies. It got a pleasant sour and bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Beaver (1611) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 11.2 oz bottle, best before 3/2/10. Pours a reddish brown with a large fizzy head that quickly goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet woody malts, some dough, some cream, and a little pepper.

The flavor is sweet bready malts, dark fruits, and yeast with a slight bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium-full and a little harsh on the carbonation.

Overall, it is rather similar to the Pater 6. I liked that one better though.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Poured a slighthly hazy deep red with a full and lasting tan head and good lacing. Aroma is very strong and consists of candied fruits and caramel topped nuts. Flavour starts out very sweet and malty with a good dose of fruits and again a slight nuttiness. the nut character is reminiscent of sherry. It has a watery complexion but plenty of residual sweetness to give a sense of fullness.
