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.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Short lasting, thick head covered an amazing, deep brown (like dark cider) ale. When held to light beer had many floaties and only let light in at the edges. Nose of spice, yeast, and apple cider. The taste is very grape and wine like. Complex beer. The finish is very yeasty and bread like, a big change from the first sip. Alcohol is decently hidden, but it still warms the mouth. One 12oz can hit ya’. Re-Rate 12-13-05 My ratings on this beer changed very little. The beer looks perfect, and is very complex.. smooth but still slightly acidic. Can be a little harsh sometimes, esp in the linger, still excellent.

Old rating. Dark brown pour, big malt body with plenty of fruit and spices. Very sweet, port-like as the description says. Nice after dinner stuff

Bottle: Dark reddish brown with an off white head. Dark fruit, cocoa, and spice aroma is followed by a fruity taste (stone fruit - apricot and plum - and raisins) and spices. Fairly balance with a slightly bitter finish.

A very good Belgian styled beer. Heavy in alcohol without that aggressive burn. Dark yet some spice and fruit flavours, not just all malt. Very nice!

Deep brown pour, creamy off white head. Nose is herbs, coco, wood, and hint of cherries. Bittersweet. Middle is malt, smoke currants. Finish is smoky and sweet.

Really good. Big bold flavours of yeast, raisins, plumbs, figs, burnt caramel and toffee, brown sugar, and malts.

Malty with a little sweetness. Not highly carbonates but still fizzy. Just OK, nothing I think I’ll buy again..

Pours murky, muddy brown. Raisins, and plum dominate the aromas. Palate is thick and slightly sticky. Tastes are the aforementioned raisins and plums, but some up front mint is on the tongue too. Maybe a bit of sweet molasses on the swallow. A good solid craft brew, but the hyperbole swirling around this one, exceeded the actual experience of drinking it.

3/22/15 (Bottle) - Excellent dark pour with a nice white tan pillow head. Several fruits including raisins, cinnamon as well as caramel and others. Very pleasant taste, light texture and mild carbonation, but heavy kick and ABV - you feel it after drinking.
