A: The beer pours an amber color with a finger of white head.
S: The aroma starts off with lots of spice, especially coriander. There is some fruit in the form of banana and pears, perhaps a hint of apple. Light phenols of pepper along with bready malts and toffee sweetness.
T: Flavor of sweet malt, particularly toffee and bread. There is a lot of banana flavor, too, which gives a bit of a banana bread character. A noticeable peppery spice, and some other fruits, mostly pears.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is also medium.
O: I’ve been interested in trying this one and thought it was actually pretty decent. djd07 (15106) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2009
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy amber with a small creamy white head that leaces good sticky lacing. The aroma is a dark fruity malt with clove and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a dry malt with raisin and clove with a nice dry finish. Hides the alcohol well making it very easy to drink. A very good belgian strong ale from (512).

GABF 2011, listed as "One". Clear dank amber with a nice rocky head. Aroma of brandy oak, toffee, and dark ripe fruits. Flavor has some belgian dark ripe fruits, boozy oak finishing up. Not too keen on the amount of boozy esters, but the flavor is spot on with a huge body full of malty delights, some toffee and dark fruits and a shade of balancing bitterness.
