Found this one bottled at Binnys Oktoberfest in St. Charles, Illinois. A nice taste treat. Light copper pour with a light tan head, nose of caramel candies and cherry, lots of baked bread, plum, apple and orange with a strong alcoholic finish. Pretty good.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma of sugary raisens and a whiff of alchohol. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation., but lacks the earthy texture that the imported belgians have. Flavor is sweet, with notes of raisens, hazelnut, cherry, and maple. Some peat and complimentary alcohol comes out on the finish, which is a tad sticky. Overall, very enjoyable. Glad I bought 4. From the first place I always hit when I go back to visit my old stomping grounds in Chicago.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a medium copper with a 1 inch head that dissipated slowly. The aroma was sweet. Cherries, chocolate, sweet fruits, and belgian yeasts. The flavor was very complex. Many different malts, and flavors come bursting through this one. Intense fruits, yeast, and a little of the alcohol come through. Not much left on the palate, as it had a very clean finish. Excellent rendition.

Sample from a bottle at Binnys "Fall Festival of BEERS." Mild coppery color, sweet nose and flavor. Very complex, the malts hit you withy a mix of bready and baked flavors, but not overpowering. Its a different beer, and despite the price, is worth it once in a while.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Muddy brownish red color, with some carmel highlights. I had a good sized head on mine, carmel in color. The flavor was so complex, it almost caught me off guard. There was some hints of orange peel, sweet tart apples, chocolate, strawberry, baking cherries, some wheat, and some heavy yeast. SOme carmel, malt, and hazelnut as well. Definitely worth trying. If it werent so damn expensive, Id always have this on hand.

kramer (6578) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a rather murky looking brown colored body with alot of very fine floaties. Head was fairly small, off-white, fizzy, and faded quickly. Aroma is very sweet and loaded with fruity esters. A combo of banana, macintosh apples, chocolate, figs, light alcohol, yeast, and overripe cherries. Flavor is intense fruitiness, yeast, and alcohol most prominantly. Finishes slightly sweet with some yeast and a good dose of bananas. Mouthfeel is classicly Belgian in nature. Medium to full bodied with a slightly sticky texture and fizzy active carbonation. A nice fruity yeasty Belgian. Comes off as more of a Dubbel more than a Belgian Strong to me.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - OCT 1, 2006
Pours a copper color with a mild aroma. Fruity and plum-like, with enough complexity to keep me interested. Overall a fairly mild Belgian strong, but well-made and well-rounded.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle at the brewpub. Pours an amber copper with a thick off-white head. A decent fruit overtone and a background of cavelike musts that for some reason finishes flat. Not a carbonation thing but more of a complexity issue.

msonnenberg (30) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Red-brown color with minimal head in the pour and sweet autumn aromas. Someone definitely put a lot of consideration into making this brew. The flavor has good yeast and malt flavors that mellow out into a pleasant finish. Well rounded. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this beer.

bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Poured a dark brown with not that big of a head. Aroma of maltiness, breadiness, brown sugar, very similar to a barleywine. Very sweet aroma. Flavor was sweet, had a little tartness, brown sugar. Palate was very thin almost as this as water. This kinda sucked. If this was a little thicker this would be great. Tastes like it could be a american barleywine with just a belgian yeast.
