Bottle. Poured a reddish brown with a tan head that lasts and leave good lacing. HUGE floaters in the glass. The aroma was of fruit and floral that starts sweet but turns a little sour. Light alcohol and malts also in the aroma. The flavor is mainly fruity with apple, raisin, and prunes standing out. Light chocolate background also. Medium body. Definitely not my favorite Belgium but it’s decent. theviolet (186) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2007
I didn’t enjoy it as much as the tremens. Almost doo heavy feeling. Very dark amber color, with a decent head. I could taste a very strong alcohol presence. Taste was also quite malty. benclarkiii (73) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Poured dark amber with a nice head that lingered. Good carbonation. I thought the alcohol was slightly strong and not well balanced by the other flavors. Very good beer. nearbeer (5563) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2007
330 ml bottle (notched at 1 of 5, and 5 of 8; maybe bottled Jan 05?). Dark brown with red tinges. Huge light-brown sugar, lasting head with excellent lace. Lots of ?yeast? chunks floating around. Aroma is hopped Bacardi and Coke with a caramel sour apple on the side. Taste is dry, some candi sugar at the start and toffee in the aftertaste, with some slight acidic and sour notes in the middle and afterwards. Very light mouthfeel. Good Belgian, but with every other taste something seems missing. Note: Bottle says 8.5% ABV instead of the 9% indicated. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Bottle: Poured a dark black/brown with a light brown head. The aroma was floral and nuts. The taste was awesome sweet tangy nuts and caramel malt flavor.

Beautiful rich brown color with a thick and persistent head. Aroma is distinctive and has a hint of alcohol in it. This beer has a strong flavor and quite a nip to it, but it is still smooth and pleasant on the tongue, with a smoky undertone. This is a beer to be sipped, not guzzled. starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Hazy rosy brown body, creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel and some alcoholic fruit. Flavour is sweet and alcoholic, with a relatively light palate. Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Pours dark ruby color with nice 2 finger head. No lacing. Smell is yeast and dark fruit. Taste is a nice dark fruit with lots of yeast and a hint of carmel. Finishes with dry woody hops. Slight alcohol burn at lower temperatures goes away with some warming. Perfect compliment to a pot roast. Recommended. muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours mahogony with lots of floaties and a tall bubbly head. Aroma is vinous, lots of sour flemish-esque notes as well, some sweet candied raisin notes finish it out. The flavor is complex as well, almost just like the aroma would lead you to belive, with a very warm alcohol finish. UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Very very similar to the tremmens but with a darker color and only slightly deeper flavor. Definitely worth having a bottle.
