Pours a hazy amber with a lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, some hops, and a little booze. Flavor is semi sweet, bitter caramel, slightly hoppy. Dry and bitter finish. You can feel the booze with a warming finish. Thick and chewy. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015

On tap at the brewery. Pours clear dark amber with a white creamy to frothy head that leaves ok lacing. Not a lot of aroma but found whiffs of caramel and alcohol. Soft carbo, medium sour, lightly bitter, light to medium body, flavors of dark fruit, raisins and caramel with a bit too much alcohol showing through. woodychevy (874) - - JAN 31, 2015
Flight at brewery. Interesting but overly sweet. Beutiful caramel colored pour- decent white head. Dried fruit, caramel and belgian notes. Slick mouthfeel. Some hop presence but left with lingering sweetness in the smooth finish. Boozy. WillRunForBeer (2652) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Free! Taster at the source. Pours reddish copper with an off white head. Aroma is clove, raisin, toffee. Flavor follows, caramel toffee backbone with clove, raisin. Dry clove and a touch of pepper in the finish.. Solid quad. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2015
750ml bottle and tap. Pours a light brown color with a thin off-white head that falls quickly to a thin ring that stays to coat the glass. Very grapey, vinous aroma with plenty of caramel and dark fruit maltiness with raisin, plum, and cherry, and a good dose of herbal and floral citrus hop notes. Flavor begins with a toffee malt sweetness which lasts from start to finish. That is combined with flavors of dark fruits and spices. There is a presence of Belgian yeast and just a hint of bitterness in the finish that fades quickly. Medium body with creamy, very fine carbonation and a slight alcohol warming.
