Bottle. Brown body, good sized off white head. (3+) Sweet musty malt aroma smells a bit like a grain bag. Muted fruit wisps. Sweet fruity malty flavour, I can not quite identify specific fruit characteristics, but it is pleasant and lingers on the tongue. Medium palate is on the light side but very smooth. Alcohol is non-existant. A bit different, I expect it would go very well with dinner. A nice stew for instance. Quaffable. ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Aspidities. Best by 05/05 date. Pours a dark ruby color with a big frothy light tan head that settles into about a finger’s worth of foam. Big yeasty aromas before I even raise the glass to my nose. Aroma is yeasty with some candy notes. It seems sweet and thin at the same time, almost a balance. Sweet raisin like flavor with some roastiness and a slight tobacco note. Bitter, slightly metallic after taste Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Reddish Brown, thin beige head. Fruity, sweetish aroma, with notes of fig and pepper. Smooth and smokey, with notes of toast and pine an pepper. Perhaps a bit too subtle? Palate is kind of cola-ish, too. There is a subtle but persistant grape flavor to the finish. Bottle, Union Jack’s, Knoxville. bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 26, 2006
i liked this beer alot. Dark brown pour with a nice off white head. very fruty and with a good malt character. enough hops for my likeing. maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Murky, opaque copper in the glass; streaky lace left by the putty-colored froth. Unusual aroma... primarily dust... also dates and figs, and more subtley, marshmallow and walnut. Mild sugar/molasses flavor dosed with chalk and slatey minerals. Berry, metal shavings, and spice are evident to a lesser degree. Odd aluminum foil finish dries out the tongue. Light palate, pinpoint carbonation. Chalky antacid and slightly bittersweet aftertaste. Overall, strange with the calcium and metal flavor elements, and not very assertive or interesting.

A nice brown pour, pretty smooth, abit of dark fruits, sugars, not overpowering at all, but very nice drinking beer, very mellow, I liked it. SDalkoholic (2386) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Appears a murky brown ale with a lot of sediment inside. Thin covering of foam that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Flavor is sweet and hs signs of malt, sugr, and raisin. The aroma was basicaly the same but also smelled almost like a root beer soda. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a hazy mahogany body with a average off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, raisins, and chocolate. Malty flavor. shrubber85 (11397) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle. Sweet orange and apple malt aroma with moderate hops. Cloudy orange brown color with small but lasting head. Very syrupy sweet malt flavor up front (a bit cloying) with a strong bitter hops finish. One of the worst tasting belgian ales I’ve tried. Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle. Red brown colour with a huge tan head. Dark fruits, light roasted aroma and a sweet fruity, raisin, dry taste. Medium body and a sweet dry finish.
