I’ve waited a long time to try this. Gorgeous dark brown pour with a frothy white 3 finger head that laced the whole way down. Aroma was dark fruit and yeast. Taste was a smooth mix of plum, bread, caramel and malt. Heavy carbonation and a dry but sweet finish. Delicious! scanovajr (695) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle 33cl. Redish brown color with a nice head. Aroma is fruity and toffee. Taste is also fruity. Notes of citrus, yeast and malt. Dry and salt end. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Thanks Chuck. Best by 06/2007. The beer pours to a murky dark brown body with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is yeasty. The smell is familiar although I cannot pinpoint it. Perhaps yeasty banana’s foster mixed with maduro tobacco? Very nice yeasty "brown" ale. The flavor is yeasty with notes of bananas and a light sweet nuttiness. Very interesting and quite delicious. The palate is nicely textured and moderately bodied. Great feel. Notes of tobacco on the finish. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Slightly murky brown body, dusted soapy off-white head. Old aroma of caramel and tobacco, brown sugar.
Flavorful, roasted sugar, tobacco, dark fruit, belgian yeast poop. Good stuff. Need to revisit this. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle shared by Chuck. Slightly hazy brown-red body, foamy tan head. Smooth round caramel sweetness with gently toasted bread on top. The flavor retains that smooth, sweet malt profile but now with a lightly tangy lime hopping. Quality stuff for sure.

brown to amber color w/ a big full llight tan head and some thick lacing. Aroma definatelly hs some alcohol and a bunch of sweet dark fruits overripe plums and some carmelized sugars. Palate is full and well coated. Flavor finishes w/ some good alcohol pieces some roasty malts lots of carmel touches of nutmeg bread and maybe some hazlenut. Pretty decent.

Bottle sampled at "Better Know a Style: Belgian Strong Ale" Blind Tasting 07. Light malty aroma, light and dark bread, cookie, lightly yeasty, dough, wood, and vanilla. Clear red amber in color, with a creamy light brown tall velvety head. Excellent lacing. Lightly sweet flavors, molasses, alcohol hidden, a little too watery. Creamy texture. A pretty decent beer. estoves (41) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle.Poured it a sniffter, first the head grew to fast so the beer may be a little vrongtasting.
The body is dark hazy red brown with huge creamy head. Aroma is of banana, vanila and its sour. Theres a lot of flavors, spicy and citrusy, sweet and syrapy,banana and raisins.
The aperance is medium thick not a lot carbonatin, but thats probably caused by the bad pour of me.
A nice beer.
