Amber color. Wonderful beer, perfect maltiness and balance, a lovely Strong Ale, with harmony, no need to say more (caramel, spices, malt…).

pours a dark amber color and a nice head with a nice fruity aroma. Flavor is wonderful with a nice warming effect. Over all a very good brew indeed. MMMMMMMMM

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Pours a semi-dark coffee like color with a nice tan head. Fruit aroma is fantastic, a plethora of aromas to hit the senses. Sweet warm intriging flavor, rich almost to the point of overwhelming but in a good sense, indulgence. A very nice finish, like just finishing off a great dessert. I will try to take this beer with me when I pass away.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Murky dark ambers and browns, thick creamy off-white head. Ultra complex nose without question. Loads of peach, apricot, rum raisin, caramelized brown sugar, berry and pear. The flavor was similar with added notes of warmed buttery fruit with a slight ABV detection. Light herbal hop notes do play a small closing role to help maintain balance. Medium to full bodied, soft fizzy carbonation, dried fuzzy fruit finish. This beer is very deserving of it’s high marks. Awesome stuff.....

Dogbrick (12770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 14th, 2005: Hazy amber with a thick and foamy beige head. Decent lacing. The aroma is sweet with malt, yeast and melon. Full-bodied, creamy and satisfying with a complex array of flavors from ginger, caramel and malt to fruit and even chocolate. I was blown away by how flavorful even a small glass of this was. The finish is sweet and lingering with roasted malt and spices (cinnamon, figs). Outstanding Belgian!

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - JAN 14, 2005
Pours a murky brown with a fluffy tannish head. Cloudiness clears after a moment. Plums, raisins, nuts flavors power this beer. Malty fruity aftertaste that lingers until the next sip. A great belgian.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2004
Cloudy orange-brown color, lasting head that was explosive upon pouring. Has a mild spicy undertone with notes of dark dried fruits and some green fruits. Finish is somewhat dry.
