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.

Amazing beer! Iíve never had anything quite like it. Re-rate: I sampled this beer again and noted that the aroma isnít as exquisite as I previously thought. Not a 10. But on the flavor side, I would choose 11 if I could. Incredibly complex and wonderful.

Cloudy, dark brown color w/ a nice head, this beer is elegant. There are so many subtle fruity & spicey flavors that it was like tasting a fine wine. Donít miss this one.

I disliked this when I tried it once before, but I now believe that I had a bad bottle. Iíve given it another chance, and I like it much more. It has a unique flavor, with a nice balance of hops, malt, and an unusual spiciness.

Cloudy ruby red color, nice head. Smelled of raspberries, tasted of raspberries, as it warmed, it tasted of chocolate covered raspberries...not overpowering with the fruit, but definitely there. Well balanced belgian with a moderate taste of alcohol.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 28, 2002
A very fine ale with a lot to offer as far as complexity and depth of character. Very well balanced with a STRONG taste of ripe prunes and a nice warming port-like finish. This breweries finest.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2002
Very full flavored and full bodied. Aromas of bread, yeast, light alcohol and spices. Flavors of cherries and apricots with yeast, a healthy malt presence and a dry finish. Yeast chunks floating in a rich, mahogony brew under a tan head. Quite nice.
