This would be perfect if there was just some stronger flavor. Aroma was strong. Dark fruit and yeast. Pour was a beautiful dark brown with a puffy off white head. Much yeast in the bottle which is a plus in my book. Taste was dark fruit, yeast and malt. Chocolate in the aftertaste. Only complaint is it was a little light bodied. The taste didnt "go all the way". It stops at the half way mark, but is still great. I dunno...makes sense to me.

Bottle. Brown colour, creamy yellowish head. Chocolate and yeasty aroma. Roasted malts flavours together with some fruits. Good carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough.

Rune (11780) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 24, 2007
330ml bottle at a rating session in Troms. Pours an unclear dark brown body under a velvet beige head leaving good lacing on the glass. Aroma is spicy with a touch of roastiness. Flavour reveals more spicies, fruits and underlying candy sweetness. Dry ending. Medium palate (18.04.2007).

Finn (6895) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 19, 2007
Bottle 0,33l. Mahogany coloured. An OK creamy lasting head with lacing on the glass. A bit modest in aroma and flavor for a Belgian beer, but you find spice and fruits. Well balanced with some bitterness in the finish.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - APR 18, 2007
Dark malt, spice and phenolic yeast aroma. Nice brownish head that staies for a while. Darker brown colour. The CO2 is quit filling in the mouth. A bit thin on the palate. The phenolics has a nice ballance with the hop and some caramel flavour. Bitter sweet after taste. Alcohol is a bit intrusive but stayes in the background.

Palidor19 (3177) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2007
For a beer that is a double, its a bit thin on the tongue. Its got the flavors of caramel, dark fruits and yeast.. Candy Sugar also makes this worthy but not extravagant.

nick76 (4387) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2007
The aroma is quite nice with candy sugar, yeast, toasted malt, dark fruit, and alcohol. The appearance is hazy brown with a fairly large head. The flavor is like the aroma but more bitter than it needs to be. The palate is thin and the aftertaste is bitter from what seem like tannins. I am not that pleased with this one.

LucidityNow (2) - USA - APR 7, 2007 does not count
Bottled. Dark reddish brown color. Creamy head. Fruity scent with some hops. Not much sets this one apart from others. Disappointing after taste. Although drinkable. A slightly above average brew.
