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.

Pours dark with a thin head. Fruity smell. Light and crisp palatte kinda like cider and bubbly. Can hardly taste the alcohol even though its 9%. Easy to drink slight bitterness but not much. Good beer overall..

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a deep Crimson brown, hazy, with a khaki head no lacing. Smell is dark deep roasted dark fruits, citrusy spice and yeast. Taste is massive dark fruits: plum, cherries, fig. Yeasty spiciness which is maybe a bit assertive, but does cleanse the palate for the next sip. Overall a solid Belgian.

750 ml pour best before 5-26-14..fairly dark brown color that is really only visible when in the light..ultimately left a tan ring head resting atop..good amount of carbonation and sound after some cork struggle..aroma is indeed ripe fruit with plum..black cherry and spices abound..mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with really no trace of the abv..does have noticeable vinous presence and an overall easy beer to enjoy with a dry finish that manages to coat the palate..tasty belgian dark strong ale

A dark brown beer with a small tan head. The aroma is fruity, esters, yeast. The flavor is berries and sugary roasted malts.

Kita (1044) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy dark brown color with small creamy tan-like head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of dark fruits, wine, caramel, yeast and subtle alcohol. Taste starts with sweet toasted malt and burnt sugar, follows refreshing yeasty and fruity with warming alcoholic mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Smooth, rich and potent brew...

Flavors of blackberries, tart cherries, bread, cola and white cake with hints of yeast and clove. Great beer, well balanced and unique.

Pours a hazy dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Has a strong aroma of dark fruits. Taste is dominated by dark fruits, and there is a touch of bitterness in the finish. Has a full body feel. Overall this is quite good, though I feel as if there could be a touch more to the flavor. Maybe a second try will be more favorable.

Poured into brandy snifter. Have not seen this in my area, so thanks to my girlfriend for bringing it back from a trip. Really unique brew. Great for a winter evening.
