lamas (1620) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2005
750mL bottle. Best before end: 01/09/07. A deep ruby body with a HUGE and fluffy khaki head on top. Bananas, cinnamon, pears, cherries and cloves in the aroma. Heavy on the carbonation but a smooth medium body. A very solid malty base that features some chocolate and coffee flavors. A wheaty, fruity, tart finish with just a touch of alcohol. The finish is reminiscent of eating cumquats. Spices, especially cinnamon, are present throughout and are complimented by the high level of carbonation.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Poured an effervescent darkruby with a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, cinnamon, bubble gum, chocolate, and lemon. Taste is pretty dry and consists of smoked chocolate, figs, ginger, and alcohol. Long dry and smoky finish. Body is decently full but aggressively carbonated, a bit too much for my taste. Pretty tasty and smooth Belgian. My favorites are a little less dry than this.

pivnizub (10357) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2005
Bottle: Dark amber coloured, thin, firm beige head, lacing; sweet-malty nose, traces of liquorice and coriander(?); sweetish, fruity start, drying out a bit and becoming slightly tart; sweet and a bit bitter flavour; short, malty finish with a distinct bitterness. O.K.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Excellent beer. Nice balance between the sweet intricate malt and the sublte spice. The hops present an earthiness and zippy bitterness that reminds me of Orval.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2005
On tap at Mahars. This was an amazing beer. Dark, but not too heavy on the palate, had a great belgian beer flavor with a sweet mollasses finish that really stood out, excellent.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Draught at Tylers in Durham, NC. Clear ruby brown color with thin off white head. Smells of floral hops and anise. Anise comes out again in the flavor along with alcohol and a hint of fresh mint leaves. Alcohol flavor lingers in the nose.
