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.

A favorite from Unibroue... pours well, sweet, spicy and the alcohol is not overpowering.... easy to drink, but dangerous!

perfumey, slightly spicy aroma...prune flavors. fairly sweet, but the high alcohol is very well hidden. great beer, just after a couple more tastings, i think i went a little high on this one

Average appearance for a Belgian, dark brown, light tan head, hazy. Wonderful aroma of malt, cherries, and yeast. Sweet complex flavor similar to the aroma with some hop bitterness in the middle and a sweet aftertaste.

Unique!!! The smell and taste are very sweet and the carbonation is somewhat like Coke but this stuff packs a punch. It looks very rich and has a nice foamy head. One reviewer said it popped when he/she opened it and they weren’t kidding. Unbelievable head. You don’t drink this one to get drunk ’cause I bet you’ll pay for it later. Awesome label, why the complaints??? Really messes with my stomach!!!

By far the best belgian strong ale. Full body and flavor, without apparent alcohol, but still has a certain kick to it. My bottle was about 14 months past the best before date- but it still kicks ass. There was nothing bad about it despite the old age- in fact the age may have made the flavors even better. Very smooth and drinkable, with so much complexity. Dark color and nice head. Very spicy, with some coriander, and finishes off with a nice port/wine taste.

This beer is best described using the eloquent words of John Madden: "BAM! Tough actin’ Tinactin."

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2003 Bugger this is sweet. Whoever said it tasted like cheap red wine was spot on, that, and cheap port and coke. I once liked this, but really don't know why, sickly and cloying, severely over-rated in my humble opinion, really flat uninspiring mouthfeel, bloody hell.
