COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

cheap (6074) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Barely any detectable aroma, but perhaps a mild mustiness about it. Brown like iced tea, not hazy. Very little carbonation. The taste is unique, a musty farm qualtiy on a moldy palate. Has a bit of tartness in the background that makes it interesting. Hides alky well for a 9%. Overall just a tad too strong for my tongue.

On tap @ the Delirium Cafe Belgium. Nice deep brownish red color. Caramel malt nose and flavor stand out, and a sweet finish present.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2008
750ml Pours a burnt caramel color with a very fizzy off-white head. Nose of apples, yeast, and alcohol. There is a lot of malts with some apples, spice, and just a hint of bitterness. Very fruity. A nice full body with a little bit of oilyness.

Dark brown colour with a short-lived tan coloured head. The aroma is sweet and malty. There are some berry fruits and a touch of burnt wood. There are smoky malty tastes and some sugary hints before a touch of alcohol at the finish.

Dark brown with white head. Sweet malt nose. Typical Belgian abbey style ale. I really liked it but had dreams about elephants.
