COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Massive thick head. Dark brown suagr color. Donít see much comparison to a port here. Nice complex nose with an interplay between light tones of fruit with more heavy spices of pepper, caramel, and cinammon. Extremely smooth, the alcohol is barely noticable. Musky dark fruit flavors - raisins, bananas, nuts - dance on the tongue. This is a good Belgian-style ale.

What a great belgian style beer, and from canada, to boot! Itís a nice dark malty ale, with some definite caramel and raisin overtones. I agree with earlier comments - i donít see any resemblance between this and a port wine, but itís fantastic anyway!

Nice sweet, rich malty flavor full of fruit flavors. A bit too much carbonation for this style. (Only thing I can say bad.)

Deep dark in color, rich fruity malt nose. Very complex flavor, slight hop in the mid-palate. Excellent beer for this style

Dark, surprisingly easy ale with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Very much a Belgian - from Canada!

This didnít really remind me of old port. It was fruity berry/ plums. Very full body. with a some what dry finish. Not bad for Canadians.

This beer rocks. Complex belgian ale...arenít they all? The aroma is very nice... malty, yeasty with hints of dates, plums, port and caramel. This dark, murky amber/brown ale has a large, off-white, rocky head. Excellent lacing and fully lasting. Tastes great... More filling!! Nevermind that. Itís a little on the sweet side for me, but very enjoyable nontheless. Moderately malty with hints of honey and a nice alcohol flavor. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Fizzy. Fuity, a bit port-like. The long finish is slightly pungent, and medium dry. Excellent beer. Try one.

A subtle raisin plumb nose with dashes of orange-lemon rind, rounded out with hints of green apples, taps you on the senses and lures you into the glass. Orange edges and a dark nut brown center lurk in the middle. Big foamy head, but submits quickly to the alcohol, yet there still is plenty of carbonation. The fruity template of this is very nice, if you can call it fruity, it is more of a delicate dance between alcohol, spices, and sweetness. Try this if you can, you canít go wrong.

A quality belgian from Canada. I found it complex but not overpowering.
