Not too bad. Aroma is sweet, with fruit and floral notes. Flavor was nice with malt and dark fruits with spice and carbonation with slight alcohol in the finish. Quality beer but there are better quads out there.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle. The color of an old copper penny with a relatively thick tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Moderate lacing. Nose of prunes, caramel, and coffee. Flavor is of dark fruit with notes of caramel, coffee, pepper, and then... a finish of alcohol. Pure and simple. Like when you do a shot of liquor. The alcohol punch, not that noticeable until the finish, serves as the final kick to each sip. This one would be a good cold weather brew (Its April, and not that cold outside, as I sampled it). The beer drinkers answer to brandy!

tkimbrought05 (37) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle. Bought under the Koening Hoven label. Smells like old bananas with a sweetness in the aroma. Average head. Pretty sweet in the taste with a touch of spice left on the palate afterwards. This ranks right up there with Chimay and Rochefort and perhaps even surpasses them in my book. Definitely look forward to drinking this one again.

Eructoblaster (4136) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle - 330ml. Superb hazy amber body with low carbonation and an average off0-white creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, caramel, and fruity hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Well balanced and complex taste that carries fruity (plum, cherrues), spicy, and yeasty notes. Ends with a very enjoyable warming finish. Wonderful winter warmer!

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2008
Bottle at St.Veronus. This is one hell of a beer, and easily goes with my top favourites. The aroma was pleasing, and involving with honey, molasses and a blend of sweet spices. The flavour tasted like a blend between Rochefort 10 and Kasteel. The brew was sweet, but did not take away from its integrity. Absolutely fantastic! A must have.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008
Brown with a low head. Sweet aroma and flavour of peach, plume, kiwi and banana, but the alcohol is overwhelming and there is too much yeast to really cut it for me.

mjg74 (3079) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Bottle from Bev4Less. Super dark amber in color upon pouring. Aroma is slightly sweet with a big banana and spiced cloves. Rich malty dark fruits as well. Sweet dark fruit up front. Some yeast and spices. Some roasted maltiness. A hint of bitterness in the finish. Good sipper. Well hidden alcohol.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2008
One of my favorite Belgians,and i cant believe i havent rated it yet. Aroma is a fragrant red berry and and vanilla fruit malt,smells like your walking through the fruit section of the farmers market. that alcohol is sneaking out there. Taste is like cherry sucker with more of that vanilla malt ,and a smooth alcohol and slightly sweet finish. Taste is a little bitter in finish,so you can;t sip it to fast,which is just the way the monks wanted it. An absolute treat

Nice color. Pours a dirty copper with a medium full head which dissipates quickly. Definite sharp alcohol nose, but sweet... like an aperitif. Not as fruity (apple/pear) as the others in the line, but very floral and pleasant (minus that initial alcohol). I like it, but there are others which are better. had floaty bits of yeast (even is carefully handled and stored upright). Decided to go with a strong beer to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the repealing of Prohibition in the US. (Bottle Pour 4/7/2008)
