3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good aroma with many complex layers, sweet roasty toffee scents. Dark cola brown with good head. Dissapointed though by the flavor. Strong alcohol taste on the finish lasts. Palate was watery combined with the alcohol for an unpleasant finish. Ok overall but not a great one for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Small Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with an absolutely massive head that fills the glass. Aroma is sweat, fruity, and wheaty with hints of caramel and honey. Flavor is malty sweat with hints of honey, plums, and grapes. This beer has a nice initial bite but little if any bitterness. Finish is smooth with a pleasant alcoholic warmth. Light to medium bodied consistency with a light and bubbly mouth feel. A top notch Belgian Strong.

This is the good stuff, drink it from a glass, even a wine glass if you have to.

Really a terrific beer! very complex flavor with a sweetly high alcohol content that adds a very unique level of complexity.. smooth palate. great aroma. sweet but restrained to perfection. definitely recomended

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge rocky off-white head. Nice caramel color more golden at the base of the glass. Medium size particles. Sweet fruity aroma of roasted grains and berries. Light to medium body. Sweet taste of honey with hints of cinnamon, cammomille, pineaple and spices. Liquory texture.I had high expectations on this one and I don’t feel quite satisfied :(.

330 ml bottle in Ravenna, Italy. Has a roasted malty aroma, and I know it sounds weird but a slight yeasty cheese smell. This one has a great body with an almost bourbon like taste. The alchohol becomes more dominant in the finish, but overall great beer!

nice opague brown. not so nice head. real thick though. smells like a BSA. quite a bit of alcohol. lots of alcohol in taste. can’t identify the flavors, but very typical of style and very balanced. thick(ish)

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 Better than the Rouge. A good beer. But what does that mean? I haven’t tried enough of it to feel confident about my judgement. We’ll see, but I sense a Duvel style disappointment emerging.
