0.33l bottle. Pours deep brown, beige head quickly dissapears.
Taste to me seems very metallic, quite sweet and malty but metal comes over above all else.
Not awful but I did not particularly enjoy this beer. I’ve certainly had better. robinvboyer (4674) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2008
bottle from daknole, thanks! typical doubel pour, dark mahogany color, with a big beige head. Aroma is metallic, with some ripe fruit, plums, apple, figs, and raisins, with some mealy malt to round it out. Flavour is sweet, with more raisins, and some plums, with a good malt backbone to balance things. The metallica taste seems to linger. The Finish is smooth, sweet, no bitterness. a decent double, but i wouldnt drink this everyday. I just cant kick the metallic flavour. gam (3930) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2008

Refreshing sourness compliments a sweet brown sugar aroma interlaced with tobacco, dried fruit, and a touch of mocha. Clear, but dark red-brown with some white wisps on top. Flavour is a touch sour, sort of a cider vinegary sourness, along with some nice toasty and chocolatey malt and dried fruit and brown sugar. A bit sweet, but this seems to completely hide any ethanol flavour together with a gentle, woody bitterness. Light body with low carbonation and a lasting, brown sugary bitterness. Very nice. biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Had this on tap in New Orleans at a bar called BeerFest. Poured a deep brown with ruby highlights. Aroma is of dark fruit and caramel. Flavor is the same with hints also of chocolate and toffee. Mouthfeel is very good. Drinkability is pretty high on this one as well. Good stuff.

Pours a deep brown that becomes a lovely ruby red when held to the light. Medium sized tan head that dissipates at a moderate rate. Potent nose of plums, figs, cloves, and other herbs and spices. Fruity taste like brandy or perhaps port wine. Sweet and fruity finish. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2008
On tap at Ølbaren. Dark brown color color, beige head. Aroma is sweet and belgian. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel. Good, but not complex and very interesting. tylerss20 (101) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bought a bottle at Jasper’s in Nashua. This is a pretty tasty brew. Pours deep tea brown, with a little tan head that dissipates quickly. Not a whole lot of nose. Tastes pretty sweet, I got a little fruit and almost candy-flavored. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but overall quite good. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2008
bottle, 100th Belgian beer rated - Finally, I hit 100 beers from a single country other than the USA. It had to be Belgium, the small nation that’s been a giant in the world of brewing for centuries. They make such amazing beers. This one pours dark clear amber with a light tan, dissipating head. The aroma is a light caramel malt that gradually becomes more apparent as the beer warms. The flavor is of sweet caramel malt with chocolate and dark fruit notes. It’s definitely one that should be allowed to warm to cellar temperature or higher as it seems like a very simple beer. That’s best for most beers, but for this one it seemed to make an even bigger difference than usual. The finish is mildly dry with a hint of alcohol. note666 (1300) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2008
