Pours a dark amber color, with some red highlights. The head is small and diminishes quickly. Aroma has nuts and some dark fruits. Flavor is very nice. Lots of dark fruits. I detect mostly plums but there are other fruits as well. Finish is slightly bitter and very pleasent. Alcohol is hidden very well. Nicely done!

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Cloudy dark brown with ruby tinge when held to light. Persistant rocky beige head. Aroma of plummy fruit, caramelly, raisiny malt, spice, licorice, a little alcohol. Rich in the mouth with a warming finish

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Too much of an alcohol presence and too little malt complexity. Some honey-like qualities, some spice, cloves maybe, some type of fruit but indistinguable what. I think I am just very, very picky when it comes to strong Belgian-style beers and many beers which others seem to like dont really make the cut for me. This is one of those.

shadey (2085) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2005
The bottle foamed over big. I had to run to the sink. From what is left I got a hazy brown/red pour with a quickly diminishing head. Dark fruit, malty, sweet aroma. A little yeast and spicy. Flavor is very nice with all that complex flavor up front with a trailing finish of spice. I taste the sweet mollasses, the banana, the dark fruits, yeast, and a hint of alcohol to firm up the body. Very nice stuff.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Pours reddish brown with a good sized off-white head. Smells malty with a hint of plums. Taste is hoppy with hints of molasses bananas and alcohol. I fine belgian beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Pours like all these other Belgians Ive been havingmurky brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruit, yeast. Sweet flavor, but not cloying. It dies off at end. Good, too thin to be great.

Ayumbomb (63) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2005
One of the best Belgians Ive had this year. I really want to make a puny statement about some sort of goofy prediction of me liking this beer, but I fear its been done many times over, and I would hate to be puny and trite. Anyway, the beer was delicious and I will probably try it out again soon.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a large and rocky slightly off-white head. Great lacing throughout. Brown sugar and molasses aroma along with fall fruit and a hint of bitterness. Brown sugar and caramelized fruit flavor with a hint of alcohol burn that reminds you that this is a heavy beer. Very faint sourness at the end. This beer does a great job of being unique to itself and not tasting like just another brune.

Another good Belgian strong. Also has the fizzy head that sounds like soda. This one doesnt mask the aftertaste as well as some other ones Ive had so Im docking it a few points. Thats just a personal preference though to not want the Belgian strong after taste.
