Nice malty nose with complex raisins and prunes. More of a Stron Ale style then belgium. Sweet finsih but a fav with a 7.4% alc punch... BeerMe302 (2) - Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2011 does not count
A rich, malty, full-bodied very complex beer. Uses 5 types of malt and has a deep ruby color. The palate has a malty sweetness with notes of caramel and other complex flavors. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2012
UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 Draft at Blues, Brews and BBQ festival. Pours nut brown with some nice off-white head. Aroma of roasty nuts and caramel. Taste is the same. Medium body with a thick creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. I’d gladly drink this again. ronaldtheriot (2021) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 5, 2014
Crown Valley Big Bison Ale has a thick, fizzy, cream-colored head, a murky, lighter, reddish-brown appearance, but with a brilliance, when the sunlight catches it, a thin lace sheeting, and racing bubble streams. The aroma is of rich, sweet, fruity, bread crust, some booze, brandy, and rock candy. Taste is of all those elements, with specifically fig, caramalized syrup, and a noticeable, but not harsh, bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat slick, and Crown Valley Big Bison Ale finishes semi-dry, dessert-like, and sip-able. Overall, this is a most excellent beer and another winner from the brewery.

Big and bold. Nice head the lasts through the beer in a proper glass.
Rich flavor with a good hoppy finish.
