Dorwart (2578) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Good sized light brown head of fine bubbles. Reduces slowly and lasts a long time. Rich, malty and spicy aroma with some plums, ginger and toasted malts. Color is a hazy dark brown. Lots of dark malts, juniper, roasted grains and a hint of smoke late swallow. Noticable alcohol presence but not overpowering. Finishes sticky and malty with some lingering spices. It has been a while since I have had a nice dark belgian strong. I like this one a lot.

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Dark brown with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, melon, and cream. Taste is quite roasty and mostly milk chocolate. A bit thin but a very enjoyable beer.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a large frothy brown head that retained for a long time due to the vigorous carbonation. The nose is fruity dark malts with a bit of alcohol, and heavy candi and brown sugars. The flavor is sort of non-descript, dark fruits and a heavy yeast influence and prominent alcohol. A lot of residual candi sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is heavy and thick with a cloying stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. Very very warming. Overall, this was just not that big of a pleasure to drink. Big and messy. Stick to IPAs and hoppy stuff Green Flash!

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Thanks LtDan. Dark brown pour, moderate tan head, only temporary lace. Fruity malt and alcohol and the nose. Aroma has good travel and duration. The malty flavor is equal parts dried fruit, fig and prune, and a sour flavor somewhere between sour cherries, sour milk, and plastic. Dry-hopping evident is a lemon-citric shine on the finish. Medium body, smooth palate, strong warming.

Soapy aroma along with some yeast and spice. Brown mahogany hued body with biege head. Flavor has some sweet sugary candy, licorice, medium texture to the body with some alcohol presence. Smooth on the palate with mild sweet, roasty, spicy aftertaste. Ok beer.
