MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Bottle. Pours a very deep hazy brown with a nice thick foamy tan/brown head. Head sticks around for a good while before dissappearing. Aromas are of dark fruits and sweet malts. Flavor is of grapes and very smooth and sweet malts. Slight undertones of apple. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated. Medium bodied. Overall a very nice beer.

jdhunt76 (56) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. Pour is a handsome chestnut brown with a diminishing sandstone head. Nice Belgian floral nose. Malty, bready flavors at the beginning, with forest fruit flavors (fig and hazelnut) emerging, followed by toffee flavors in the finish. Medium bodied and remarkably well balanced.

jake65 (3352) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle: Murky reddish brown pour with a large off-white head. Nose of malt and sweet fruits. Tastes of sweet fruits, caramel, and malts. Just a subtle hint of spice. Very smooth and drinkable with a balanced amount of carbonation.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with a whitish head. Nice aroma with some fruit and maybe malt. Taste of caramel, hay, malt and mabe, maybe some chocolate? A bit dry. Medium body. I poored it in my Westmalle glass and much of the carbondioxide went away. If you use a glass with smaller "mouth" you might get it too much carbonated.

Theis (15098) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle at Le Moules in Prague. Unclear brown - offwhite head. Chokolate, raisins, apple, licorice, fruity, malty, roasted, smooth. Too high carbonated.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Brown with a little clinging head. Malty nose on a fizzy high carbonated body. Same malt flavor but a rough finish. I think this bottle had spent too much time on a shelf.

Nice aroma and taste. Produces a nice head when poured into a chalist styled glass.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a slight reddish tint with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty and on the sweet side. Flavor is full of the malt, with some yeast - definitely on the sweet side, but nicely balanced. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
