Thanks to hopdog for opening up this one. Pours a hazy brown with some golden amber notes and a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, sweet malts, solventy, some spicy Belgian esters, ginger, bready and floral. Flavor of dark fruits, toasted malt, ginger, a bunch of various spices, brown sugar notes, earthy, oak, coats the tongue and biscuity.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium brown body with a creamy, light beige head. Smell: Syrupy dark maltiness with notes of plums, strawberry jam, and a blend of various spices. Taste: Dark malts with a taste of heavily caramelized sugars. Dark fruits and jam. A bit of aniseed and other various spices. Yeah, its a bit boozey, and comes across a touch solventy. Spicy, drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Restrained carbonation. Rather sticky mouthfeel, thats for sure. Drinkability: I am left somewhat disappointed, shaking my head all the while. It just didnt quite come together for me. Glad to have tried it though!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
In short: A decent but very basic caramelized Strong Belgian Dark Ale.
How: Bottle at Flossmoor on Pre-Dark-Lord-Day party 2008. Almost 1 year old (June 2007 vintage). Unknown generous soul, thanks a lot whoever you are.
The look: Clear dark amber body with a small off-white head.
In long: Heavily caramelized body, lively Belgian carbonation, some dark fruits, above average sweetness. Not much else to say really. A big Belgian style beer with no real character. A pleasant beer but in that overcrowded Strong Belgian Dark Ale this one is the french-fries side order on a big restaurant menu.

Shag (2943) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2008
This one poured a brown color with a beige head. The aroma consists of cherries, nutmeg, brown sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Am I crazy but I taste some ginger in there? I also get some caramel, nutmeg, dark fruit, and a hint of citrus. Overall this was a nice Belgian Strong.

Bottle thanks to miketd: Pours a transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet dark toasty caramel malt and good bready Belgian yeasty. Body starts fairly full and toasty caramely sweet with a good light fruity complexity and some full, biscuity maltiness. A true to style and enjoyable Belgian strong.
