On tap at Lone Wolf. Pours a clear coppery yellow color with a very slight white head. Aromas of herbs, sage, caramel, Christmas. Taste is sweet. Very interesting but not my thing.

Draft. Amber pour this is spicy rocketfuelled booziness. Harsh finish. Not good.

rxeight (1857) - Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Glad they finally brought this one back, this was one of top wants. First thing that stands out is the glaze on candied meat. Burnt brown sugar syrup. Has lots of spices. Somewhat Belgian, but also somewhat Floyd d’rue. Cardamom, ginger. Unique. Not what I was expecting, but certainly a fun tick.

On tap at hopleaf. Strong citrus nose with hints of sweetness. Very pleasing. Honey and heat on the front, heat on the back. This is not for the faint hearted. Not an overwhelming hop sensation but there is a nice balance here. Highly recommended.

djd07 (5897) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle during RBWG. Pours a clear gold with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is dark fruits and toffee. Medium mouth nice caramel and toffee, brown sugar, alcohol present but not overpowering, very nice.

tmoreau (2905) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2014
A gift bomber from a number of years ago, brought out of the cellar to share, and poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey amber color, with a very modest layer of off white froth that reduced quickly to a ring & film, and lightly laced with some leggy coating on the glass. The nose was lightly spiced, sweet & fruity, with mostly tropical notes of mango & papaya. The taste was candy sweet, thick & syrupy, and quite full in body. The alcohol seemed to advance with age, showing good potency & warmth. A surprising, liqueur-like treat.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ed. Didn’t think I’d see this one. Muddy orange-copper body with no head, nada; still & quiet. Very fruity aroma with dates, grapes, prunes, raisins, all coated with saccharine sweetness. Caramel, Belgian Candi sugar, banana esters, & a faint hint of floral perfume round out the back side. A touch of alcohol. Taste is similarly sweet... VERY sweet. Quite booze heavy, too, at 13% ABV. More Candi sugar & molasses coated dark fruits. A light brown sugar note collides with a sticky caramel & toffee background. Mid-palate to finish, the Belgian aspect of the beer makes itself known; yeast grows on the palate. Belgian spices & yeast, clove, earthiness... Finishes strong & boozy with a touch of tart apple skins & spice. Sticky, lingering mouth feel. Heavy. Very heavy. So glad I got to try this.. Not exactly in my strike zone but actually not bad, especially considering the age.
