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.

Very interesting beer and quite unique. Mine is a dark ruby red with a mild head. Cloves, spiciness, yeast and sweet fruity tastes are present. At first I could also really taste the alcohol. I also get the sensation of grapefruit, other fruits. Iíd like to try this one again in the future, maybe let it rest for a while in my cellar.

Bizzare grape juice aroma and flavour, quite sweet with little aftertaste. Tastes unlike any beer I know. Iíd like to give one about 6 months in the cellar, to see if it becomes a little smoother.

This is an excellent beer. Very fruity...tasted like very ripe plums...has a nice lingering spicy aftertaste...a bit thinner than I expected...this is my new choice for pairing with cigars.

Mmmmmm. Nice, rich, fluffy head that rises full, then quickly deflates. Lovely caramel-y aroma thatís sweet and inviting, with an alcohol bite in the background. The flavor is smooth, but with an alcohol bite. The port comes through strong. Great for after dinner hanging out with good friends and good conversation.

Quickly dissipating head leaves a still liquid thatís a little on the red side of muddy brown. Aroma is curranty/raisin and sour cherry, with hints of malt and alcohol. In the flavor, the fruity and malty richness is impressive, as is the complexity. One drawback is that the alcohol presence is more than I would like.

Not my favorite beer, a little too sour. But Belgian Strongs arent my favorite style to begin with.
