Bottle sample at the 12% tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 12/15/11. Pours hazy brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sugary caramel, toffee, tobacco, molasses and chocolate. Toffee and caramel flavor with a chocolatey, roasty finish. Very sweet, but unique and enjoyable. drfabulous (7783) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2012

deep amber with a small off-white head.Aroma of red berries, malt, yeast, spice and sugar.Flavor is sweet and malty with some spicy notes.Medium body, average carbonation.Good beer.
Pint bottle. Dark brown with a tan active head that dissipates quickly but leaves a half inch of foam. The aroma suggest super sweetness with chocolate and alcohol. The flavor is interestingly fruity and very sweet with a different kind of sweetness that is kind of like toffee. Alcohol is tasted. This is interesting and is indeed super sweet. Some kind of hop bitterness would be a welcome addition. Not quite cloying sweetness but too close for me. caesar (7097) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2011
Bottled @ home. Clear reddish brown color, short head. Aroma of rich sugar, some ripe fruit, caramel malts, raisin. Only slight spicy from the yeast. Taste is quite sweet, bit dry, slight nutty. The belgian yeast is obvious, but not overwhelming and lets the sugary notes shine, the way they probably intended to be. Carbonation is quite low for a belgian style, which is perfect for me, coz usually they blow up in your stomach. Despite the sticky tooth, reasonably easy drinkable that way. Im not a fan of pretty sweet beers, but Im enjoying this one!
