Bottle from BevMo. Dark brownish in color upon pouring. Sweet aroma that seems to have some dark fruit hints. More dark fruits dominate the flavor. Some raisins and fig along with a little spice. Reminds me of a dubbel. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 On tap at the Sharp Edge beer Emporium. Aroma is rather sweet like cotton candy, but not like a strongish ale. Very attractive bouquet. Perhaps there is a trace olfactory of peppermint. Light rather rootbeer or cream soda in appearance. Thin tea froth head. Beautiful lacing. Gentle tingly carbonation that is well done. Not overly fizzy, just the right amount to let you know it is not flat. Mild tartness combined with a slight hint of bock greets the tongue. Some alky bitterness. Rather unique and friendly in its own way. Some earthy tones and flavors. One of the better tasting strong ales I’ve sampled. Overall a very enjoyable brew that I’m glad to have had the chance of tasting. Finish leaves a short non-lingering mild bitter tinge. The best belgian strong ale I’ve tasted. Probably don’t belong in this style. joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - OCT 8, 2007
hazy bronze color with a dense tan head. lots of yeast, alcohol and tartness, supported by a dark fruit and toasted toffee malt. medium light body with a very lively carbonation. acidic, toasted lemon fruity flavor with a light spicy bitterness. very interesting mix of a bock and a flemish brown, kind of goes but a little clashing. i think the bottle was a little old so the flemish dominated a bit. faroeviking (11217) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep brown colour with a huge long lasting beige head. Aroma of spices, toasted malt, yeast and dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. Sweet toasty spiced flavour with dark fruits, some sourness and bitter hops. Toasty spiced and sour finish. Reminds me a bit of a lambiek. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Really a one-of-a-kind beer. Dark reddish-brown with an off-white rocky head. Vinuous, yeasty, dry roast aromas -- cherry fruit. Astringent, with a sour, drying finish. Pit fruit: cherries, plums, figs. Rustic caramel and dark toast provide a healthy malt backing for the bitter hops and sweet fruits. There’s a lot going on in here, but deciphering all of the flavors and components is extremely worthwhile. A great, unique strong ale that brings all of the assertiveness of a sour ale into play.

750 from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond. An odd beer in many ways, almost a combination of a smoky bock beer and a Flemish sour. It certainly looks like the latter, with a cloudy red body and a big billowing head. But there’s a dry smoke amidst the musk, and to me it doesn’t quite blend well enough with the sour apple. Still, enjoyable enough.
