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.

Bottle. A deep orange brown color with minimal head. This beer has the typical corked belgian beer aromas, but the taste is more mellow, watery, and drier than I expected. The flavors become most apparant with a dry kick in the finish. It did not have the robust mouth-filling charge that many Belgianís have. It had a dry fruit flavor, somewhat sour, and malty.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 Incredibly smooth for such a high ABV beer. A slight fruity sweetness to it. Very mellow without an overpowering taste. Sip it slow.

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.

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.
