UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 Strong, complex, but not overwhelming. Just an overall great ale that fits in on almost any occasion. Beautiful pout, nice aroma of light fruit and fresh malts. A pleasure to sip! tulsajeep (12) - USA - JUL 30, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Great beer - absolutely perfect with a good cigar (Fuente Hemingway Best Sellers!). Kick back with those two and life is good! HDane (82) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark brown, moderate white head. Nose is bananas, yeast, maybe some malts, and an overall sourness. Flavor is much of the same, with a carbonated mouthfeel. Deldoddadinho (4) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2006 does not count

This is an excellent experience but I felt the alcohol overtones to great to place it in the top choices. I admit to a preference to the dubbel, I think this is a great beer to educate the pallet.

Deep brown coloured with a foamy off white head. Nice dark fruity caramel malty aroma with clear alcoholic-yeasty touches. Full body, little sweeter. Finish is sweet caramel like with an alcoholic touch. This is a top beer. acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2006
What can I say that hasn’t been said 1273 times before me? Oh well. Pours a dark brown with a thick white head. The line separating the liquid from the head is indistinct due to the continual release of carbonation. First time I’ve seen that in a beer. Kind of cool. Aroma is of slightly sour bread. In the mouth it starts off sweet with hints of fruit and malt. Finishes with a touch of bitterness and a punch of alcohol. Better than I was expecting given that I’m usually not a fan of Belgian Ales. Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Dark brown with a medium tan head. Slight fruit and alcohol aroma. Hint of alcohol up front that gives way to caramel, malt and a mild fruit flavor. Easy to drink. Nice beer. A SRAorion (19) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2006
A rich flowery scent undertones of malts and yeast Pours a Dark opaque amber brown. Flavor starts of sour yeasty deep and rich undertones of fruit moves into a malty flavor with a light coffee bitterness Finishes yeasty and lingers nicely. No lacing a little watery and tingly/bubbly. DarkMagus (542) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2006 Very hazy dark brownish/reddish/amber color. Initially a coarse foamy tan-colored head, settled after awhile and turned to a light layer of fine bubbles on the surface. Fairly light malty, spicy, fruity, floral aroma. Nice strong array of flavors: malt, caramel, molasses, raisins, dates... completely overwhelming and completely delicious. Pretty easy to drink, despite the heaviness, richness, and depth of flavors...smooth sweet mouthfeel, slightly sticky... One of my favorites.
