Pours a murky dark brown with a 3-4 finger head that lingers. Raisin cherry. Mildly sweet and tart, but finishes bitter. Medium body. Moderately fizzy. Medium finish. A touch boozy but moderately drinkable. I like it.

Pours an opaque chestnut with garnet highlights, and a big fluffy tan head that persists as significant lacing and decorative skim. Nose is sweet malt, roast nuts, dark fruits, ginger. On the palate, the major notes include caramelized banana, grapes and raisins and a spunky spiciness that mixes ginger with coriander and orange zest. Thereís a bit of alcohol burn on the end along with bitter cola, but itís more of a suggestion than a serious misstep.

Clownoisseur (334) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a dark brown, fluffy tan head that pillows up and recedes into fine lacing. Aromas are of subtle spices...ginger, cinnamon and some clove. Light roasted malt creeps in along with some alcohol. Taste has a nice crisp edge to it. Spices dance across the palate on a medium-to-high carbonation...which counterbalances the big malt bill nicely. Plenty of dark fruit tang along with earthiness and light roast. Finishes with a bit of alcohol sting, but itís pretty well masked. Solid.

Barreras (1138) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a deep brown almost black color. Aroma is of ripened prunes mixed with a sweet toffee. Taste is full flavored with strong alcohol mixed with ripened sweet fruit. A simple malt flavor which is overpowered by the alcohol content but very well balanced. Another good beer from a great brewery.

Bomber shared by KyotoLefty. Dark fruit nose, some breadiness, and stale cake. Dark trnaslucent brown. Deep pruney initial, goes to fizzy raisins, some small bit of oxidation, with a mild sweet finish.Medium-heavy body, a little slick. Mildly tasty, a bit too sweet. Very malty. Okay.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle from Hegedornís. Fruity nose, grapes, chocolate, caramel, coriander maybe. Quite fruity, citrus, grape, cherry. Flavor like a spicy brownie, with tangy fruits. A bit too much spice, and the body rather thin. I was really excited about this, but although nice enough it came nowhere close to my expectations.

Iím so thrilled to have got the chance of grabbing a bottle of this refined brew after waiting for like 2 years! Very enjoyable pour of a deep brown shade of high opacity topped by a sustantial tanned head finely structured and letting guess a creamy feel. Retention is excellent and lacing is verry god, too. The nose is dense wih sweet banana, roasted malts, yeasts and a sweet/bitter spicy presence I couldnít identify. This ale is sweet, spicy and nutty with again candied banana and a great harmony between the hops and yeasts giving it lots of depth. I found the bitterness just right, giving kick to the taste but without overpowering anything. The mouthfeel can be described as dense, vapory and creamy bearing a slight sharpness at first hand. The downer is a mild aftertaste but no ale is perfect.This brew evolves as it heats so serve it cold and let it reach 10 - 12 degrees to release more boldness. Overall the best features of this ale (besides its name) were its depth, density and originality compared to other brews offered by Unibroue. Very happy I can say I tried it!

smroush (85) - Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Aromas of candy sugar and spice. All malt and spice; not much hops. Some dough. Lots of spice- clove, all spice. Appearance is dark brown; even at the edges though a bit of dark red at the edges. Moderate sized quite light tan head. Taste has a little sweetness, probably mostly from the alcohol. Not much real bitterness. Body is pretty full. Texture is kind of interesting with a bit of oil and a touch of creaminess; a little towards the thick side. Finish is carbonation and spice; pretty long. Overall itís pretty good. Not complex enough to rate higher, dominated by candy sugar and spice.

Dry white grape aromas with some meaty undertones. Bone colored head and dark brown body. Earthy belgian yeast and veggie flavor with some rootyness. Smooth.

stevoj (2539) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Wonderful aroma, dried fruits, yeast, slightly herbal. Taste brings more of the same, earthy, rich, vibrant. Dark brown \ ruby body, small airy head, finish could be longer.
