Very sweet brew. Malty toffee in the aroma. A little thin texture. Smooth feeling. Nice delicious caramelly toffee and chocolate flavor. Too sweet in the end, though. Finishes with a strong filthy heavy feeling of malt and toffee.

Nice red color. More hops in the nose than I expected - slight spice to it. Not bad, pretty drinkable Belgian.

This is not a bad Belgian Ale. Malt, fruit and toffee flavors. Finish is crisp, clean, and dry.

Dark brown ruby colour, light brown head. Body is slightly thin. Dark malty flavour with hint of toffee and some alcohol notes at the end. Cheers to Doug for sharing.

Caramel, toffee nose, hazy brownish red, has a small toffee head. Treacle, candied malt flavours, good bitter finish. Very pleasant.

CapFlu (4719) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
(5oo ml bottle) Pours a reddish-brown bodya nd a thin, almond head. Deep malt nose with underlying plum. Wine, berry and malt flavours. Very Good!

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Amber-burgundy colour. Aroma is light, with treacle notes and a slight peach fruitiness. The body is light, but offers a vibrant character. Toffee and light orange notes abound, but are drowned out by too much alcohol in the finish.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Nice white head and brown body. Very fruity smell and taste. Specially plum. Its like eating a piece of fruit. Smooth and easy!

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Awsome clear red color. Very fruity nose...like sticking your head in a basket of dried fruit. Carmel sweet malt, and maybe a bit too much sweetness. Very fruity flavor as well. Not bad. A possible lay-away.
