jkwood04 (3876) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Ceramic looking bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours dark brown with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and chocolate from the malts, plus a little hops. Flavor the same, a nice blend of it all. Average texture. A pretty good Belgian beer.

Spab (2353) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
500 ml bottle at Volo. Pours a slightly rubyish dark brown with large light tan head. Aroma is sort of cola-ish with dark fruit. Flavour is fruity (cherry and other slight dark fruits), brown sugar and light chocolate. Fairly lively carbonation. Good.

wlajwl (3816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2012
Mildly sweet malts and yeast in aroma. The flavor is caramel, candy sugar, dark fruit and not much bitterness. Somewhat subdued but pretty good still.

joechristenson (146) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2011
750 mL bottle at home. Pours dark brown with hints of mahogany and some red. Very light brown foam, good lacing. Aroma of dried cherries, some plum, spiciness, and light, yeasty malts. Taste profile mirrors the aroma’s, with the dried cherries accentuated. Lighter on the palate than I expected, though it’s pleasant. Nothing too special here, but pairs nicely with a chicken dinner.
