Aromas of caramel and raisins. Taste is sweet and full of caramel. Body is weak and watery. Meh.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
500ml ceramic swingtop bottle. Pours dark mahogany with a thin white quickly dissipating head with minimal lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel, yeast, brown sugar and subtle dark fruits. Not much hops. Taste is very sweet. Unfortunately this beer was not very exciting.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Presented in an attractive ceramic bottle that I will likely use for homebrew! ours clear, dark mahogany with no head. Perhaps I got a bad bottle, dang it. Aroma is molassas, caramel and prunes along with sweet malt. Flavor is sweet and dominated by over-ripe fruit and special-b malt (raisin/caramel). Not complex at all for the style. Full-bodied and barely carbonated. This bottle must be jacked up, so Iíll have to try it again.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle. Very dark brown with a good tan head. Aroma is nice with malty caramel dark fruit and some yeast. However the flavor is disappointing. Quite bland in fact. Some sweetness at first with some bitterness, but it is very muted and unimpressive. Not bad but definitely a little bland on the tongue. Rather smooth and easy to drink though. For a standard belgian ale this is okay.

AlbertC (276) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2011
Aroma is some red fruits, figs, alcohol and diacetyl. Taste is rather dry, again dark fruits and some wood. Finish is malty and fruity.

THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2001
Not my favorite style, but an interesting beer and one of the better Belgians I have had.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Dark amber in coloration, tan head with a nice lacing. Heavy smell of malts, much like a brown ale. tastes malty, maplesque... its a brown ale.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Smell of malts and raisin but not sweet, and actually I also get a smell reminiscent of Chinese barbecue. Taste is drier than I expected, malty, with a mildly sweet finish.

The Friar99 (222) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2001
Better than other Belgian Ales that Iíve had. I really canít put my finger on what it tastes like, but I enjoyed it.
