(Bottle) Smells slightly funky. Pretty dry. Nice! But I would say fairly average dark Belgian.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Rich. Deep black color with fine head. A little spicy and bitter but easy to stock for the ABV.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOTTLE 341ML from CH-303.
Look: opaque dark brown, biggish beige head.
Aroma: rich sweet and tart dried fruits, oxidized wine, wine barrel, spicy coriander notes, hints of nuts, some light alcohol notes,
Taste: light fruity sweetness, winy, very light alcohol. The body is light but is fine. What it is lacking is more spice and heat from the alcohol. Excellent otherwise!

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Best aroma I have ever smelled - sweet citrus mixed with trippel. Pour is brownish black with small lasting head. Taste is sweet caramel with an orange aftertaste. No bitterness or bite whatsoever - totally smooth. Wow, is this a mind-blowing beer.a Pl

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a trade. A very dark mahoganey brown with a thick fast-dissipating head. A rich spicy malty beer aroma. The taste is fantastic dark pitted fruits, raisins, spice and malts. Sweetly complex without being cloying. Probably one of the best belgian ales I have had in awhile.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is ripe plums, yeast, some alcohol. Not as good or complex as I was expecting. Very nice looking dark reddish brown color. Off white head that shrinks quickly. More carbonated than I thought it would be. Tastes like a cross between a Belgian ale and a lager. Crisp because of the amount of carbonation. I am getting a cherry like taste and some other sweetness before the port wine aftertaste described on the bottle. Palate is good because of how unique it is. Heavily carbonated yet smooth. Overall I liked it, didn't love it. Probably won't buy again.

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. I must be missing something with this renowed Belgian Strong. Tasted with La Fin and Terrible, and this was my least favorite.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared bomber. Watery brown appearance. Ripe dark fruit nose, but not prominent on the palate. Dull carbonation makes for a surprisingly light palate. High ABV cloaked. Okay, but may be better with a meal.
