Pours hazy brown with small tan head. Aroma of malty brown sugar, some nuts and toffee, some port, caramel, and dark fruit. Tastes malty, brown sugary and figgy, with a semi-dry finish. There is a definite molasses note, and some funky notes as it warms.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Had during a beer tasting party. Poured light brown and had a hint of peach in the aroma. Taste didn’t live up to interesting smell but still decent.

750 Ml bottle lot # 135376. Poured a light brown with a medium light brown frothy head. Molasses/caramel, bread a touch of orange and some alcohol came through in the aroma. Medium bodied, I picked up a caramel/toffee sweetness, some molasses that European yeast some spices and a light hop that was a bit light and left too much sweetness on the palet. Overall this was a very satisfying brew, a bit sweet especially for this hop head.

Brown body with a huge head. Yeast, candy sugar, toffee, and banana come through in aroma and flavor. Didn’t seem as powerful or interesting as most Belgian beers I’ve had.

A dark red beer with a good head. It is very fruity in as well the aroma as the flavor - but it has a well rounded flavor.

From a 750 ml bottle. huge head that will not go away. The body is dark brown and ruby with copious carbonation. The head is light tan. The aroma has some sweet pears and some earthy mushrooms. There is also a little moss and some leather. Everything is fresh smelling. The taste is rather dry pears and Macintosh apples with some light prunes. There is also carmel here. A very well doen dubbel.
