very malty, sweet rich fruit aroma. A little cocoa as well.
lighter taste than I expected, almost seems to have a wine aspect to it, though finishes more bitter and roasty. A little alcohol. Sweet and malty. AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Medium large, but short-lived brown head. The flavors, also, are good, but short-lived. They include a bread flavor, chocolate, and sugar cane. Ron (3963) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a deep fig brown with a small tan head. Aroma of metal, dark fruits, chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavor of dates, chocolate, dry toast, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, earthy mouthfeel. Decent but I normally like this style better. Thanks for the trade JB. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours extremely deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of raisin and malt. Sweet smell. Medium body. Flavor doesn’t have a strong Baltic quality to it. Sweet barley brownie. The palate is sweet and lingering. Not bad, but not interesting. csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle - big thick tan colored head, dark brown color, super malty aroma and flavor, roasty, creamy, mild fruity notes - pretty good for the style I guess

a little over the top sweetness and booze, but still pretty enjoyable. Cherries and chocolate, toffee/caramel sweetness. Not as much depth as I’d like, but still ok. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Vintage 2012, 12oz bottle. Very dark brown pour, thin ring tan head. Aroma of molasses, sweet toasted malt syrup, dark fruit puree, and chocolate malt. Tastes like a burnt Belgian Dubbel. Chocolate malt, dark fruit, wood tannin bitterness. A bite of a boozy finish in the roasted flavors left behind. (3486) Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of alcohol and some dark fruit notes. I also get a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of raisin and prune notes, as well as some molasses and roasted malt. I also get the slightest hint of smoke. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2012
