3 ounce sampler at the Grovetoberfest Miami beer festival 10/13/12. Very good! Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Very sweet. Caramel , brown sugar. Some honey. Toffee malts. Nice a bit too sweet for my taste. High carbonation.

An underrated belgian strong ale. Dark brown with huge head. Malty scent. Sweet but balanced, a bit of salty notes at the end (reminded me of Westvleteren 8 at this point). Delicious, and not too expensive, i’ll have more in the future, no doubt Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Poured the beer from a large bottle into a trappist-style glass to drink. The appearance was a mostly-cloudy dirty brown color with a slight deep amber hue and an average-sized foamy and creamy off-white head with modest retention, good lacing, and light cling. Its aroma featured dark fruits, including raisins and prunes, and lighter floral and earthy notes, along with a touch of caramel. The taste had a slightly sweet earthy-floral effect with a touch of sour grain and some light caramel malt, but was under-developed overall. Its body had low-to-average carbonation and fizz with a somewhat flat and wet mouthfeel with low density.

Pours a clear deep reddish brown with a high creamy head. Initially displays a slight sweetness that gives way to a lightly sour, medium bitterness. The finish is distinctly sour and slighty astringent. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with a tall khaki head. Pleasant fruitiness on the nose of banana, plum, and pear. Some hints of apple and a nice spice aroma of nutmeg and clove. Some sweet toffee and toasted bread in there as well. The flavor is a hint metallic, but otherwise good. Nice sweet maltiness, some banana fruit notes, and a subtle spiciness. Undertones of nutmeg and clove, light alcohol warmth to it as well. Sumonation (94) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2012

Aroma’s of vanilla, maple, and caramel. Deep brown color with a fat foam top. Overbearing carbonation upfront with a vanilla, caramel and alcohol backbone. Overall, the flavors are well balanced but the carbonation is way too overbearing and intense. I’d give this a C rating. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Poured from 330 ml bottle.
Clear, sparkling, orange-red brown with an enormous head if cream-colored, creamy foam that settles slowly to leave very nice lacing.
Aroma of dark bread malt, yeast, toffee, honey, grape, plum and raisin.
Taste of sweet dark malt, molasses, toffee, prunes, red wine grapes, tropical fruit and a touch of clove. Sweet, fruity and malty, but with enough complexity to keep your interest.
Medium/full body and medium carbonation.
