750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Batch 008. Opened with a decent pop, releasing a plummy cloud of vapor. Pours copper with a 4 finger frothy head. Aroma is something like plum, raisin cake and treacle. Med body. Flavor is treacle, raisin, plum/prune and a hint of chocolate. Certainly not dry, but it’s within a tolerable range of treacle. I’m of two minds about it, but it makes me eager to try something like a tripel. Likin this! lb4lb (2632) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Smell is raisins and light malt. Taste is thin, refreshing light rasiny malt. Not really sweet, which is nice. Thin and while on the lighter side flavorwise, it makes it drinkable for me since I’m not a huge fan of the style. ttoadee (1584) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2014
Medium brown pour, off white head. Nose is malt. Sweet. Middle is toffee, malt, hint of orange. Finish is still a little sweet, but not as much as the front. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Rated at BTBF 2012 (Backlog). Amber in color with an average sized off-white head. Aroma is of grain, malt and carrots. Taste is of brown sugar, malt and booze. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Boring appearance: zero head/lace. Medicinal aroma coupled with failed sour grain. Belgiany, funky, spicy, so much malt. Bleh; not for me.

25-JAN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting, @Yespr.
Amber with tan head.
Fruit aroma with malt.
Taste is very malty with fruit, berries, and drired fruit. High carbonation, medium body. Somewhat barley wine-like, and not really a dubbel.
