Deep brown colour with a white head. The aroma is malty and yeasty. The taste is sweet and a bit acidic. (Bottle 33cl)

tap, drown coloured, average head, toasted aroma with some sweet chocolate touches. Creamy smooth taste with a soft bitter after taste. A good beer!

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2011 It has been a long time since Ive had this, so its due for a re-rate. (initial rating, 7/3/7/3/17=3.7, 9/12/2005). Pours a dark brown with amber highlights, some floaties, and a fizzy khaki head. The aroma is spritzy lemon, quite a bit of dusty yeast, slight notes of dark chocolate and toasted almonds, and some very distant prune. The flavor is dusty and slightly nutty. Pumperknickel, toasted almonds, faint wood, and a little bit of raisin come to mind first. Theres an ever-so-subtle burnt note in there. Toward the finish it gets a little bit of a caramel character that seems to become more noticeable after several sips. Then another dose of that dusty taste. The aftertaste is mild and short-lived. It still drink pretty good, but isnt particularly impressive overall.

Bottle. Dark brown with tinge of red, thickish tan head. Nice dark beer with slightly sweet fruit but nice hop finish. Smooth in mouth. Does everything you would expect, but doesnt have any distinctive character

Very uniform brown color thats nice to look at. Ample head that reminds you of the top of a root beer float. A crisp smell to it. Excellent, well balanced taste. One of the best beers Ive ever had.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Bottle: Light brown, very muddy/dirty, moderate to large light beige frothy head, fairly decent lacing, lively carbonation. Bready nose, slight fig/date, some candy sweetness. Not as complex on the tongue, quite bready but not as sweet as suggested in the nose, with very little dark pitted fruit like character. I do pick up a slight touch of apple or pear skin. Spritzy mouthfeel, moderate to full body. Finishes smooth, but lacks much character by the end. Sample size was the 330ml. Wondering if the 750ml bottles do much better. More impressed with this one than Agnus, but still not as good as I had hoped.

I was enjoying this so much that I almost forgot to rate it. First of all, be careful opening this bad boy or you might put your eye out. i still havent found the cork from when it shot out like a bullet. That being said...the first thing I noticed was the wonderfully complex, pleasing aroma with some caramel. After the long wait for the head to recede, I found that the flavor matched the aroma with its complexity. Absolutely great.

Special ale. Firm notes of raisin and chocolate are balanced by fruity/estery Belgian yeast character. Strong and substantial yet oddly drinkable as only the Belgians can accomplish. Belgian ale truly makes life worth living. My favorite abbey (non-Trappist) ale.
