madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark, murky brown and a thin to medium light brown head. Great lacing. Nice fruity aroma of plums, apples and a hint of spice. Flavor is mostly the same dark fruits, lots of malt. Mouthfeel is creamy and full. The finish leaves me with a bready flavor in the back of my mouth. Very good beer, I’m looking forward to trying others from this brewery.

Pours a murky hazy brown color with a thick creamy tan head. Aroma is of cinnamon,nutmeg,baked apple crisp,plums and malts. Flavor is much the same as the aroma with hints of figs and other dark fruits. Very good but not as good as the 12.

Pours deep amber with a thinnish tan head. Nose is stewed apple, fresh dates, malty. Flavor trends toward dark fruit (plums), malt, with rather tasty bitter finish. Not real complex, but very well done and very refreshing.

shrubber85 (10670) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. Cinnamon, stewed apple and plum aroma. Opaque dark brown with large head. Sweet plum/prune flavor with a moderate astringent/bitter finish. Flavor not quite a complex as aroma would lead you to believe.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Very nice beer. A bit more mainstream than I was expecting, not being a regular drinker of Belgian Strong Ales. Beautiful dark copper body with some sediment and a nice white head. Flavor of wine, yeast, and alcohol, complex and subtle. Very smooth.

This is one solid dubbel (or strong ale, whatever). Strong and spicy, it has some coriander perhaps and other great stuff. Worth trying. Caramel at the end.
