Classic Belgian. Pour was a delicious dark brown with a thick off white head. Aroma was dark fruit and yeast. Taste was plum, malt and caramel followed by an alcohol burn with the yeastiness and carbonation teasing the senses. As it warms has a vinuous taste coming out.

Small bottle, poured a dark ruby with a thick creamy tan head, aromas of dark malt, caramel, chocolate, dark candy sugar and sweet bread, some plum, vanilla and fruit fragrances and faint white wine in the nose, taste of dark malt, roasted malt, some sweet on the tongue, little raisin and brown sugar flavors, I sensed the alcohol in the background on first sip but I did let it warm up a little, small alcohol and/or hop bite on the tongue, medium dry on the palate, the alcohol intensifies as it warms, for me the alcohol started to overwhelm the flavor, faint wine taste or texture here and there, this would be better if the alcohol was hidden more. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Draft at PP Belgian Beer Fest. Dark fruit on the aroma. Suprised me on the flavor to get a bit more sour fruit instead of darker, dried sort of flavor. A bit of alcohol on the finish as well. Not too bad. Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle, 75cl. Brown colour with a medium tan head. Fruity aroma, mostly green apples and slightly vinous. Fruity flavour with a light sourness.
french tickler (648) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2007
750ml bottle. Drank in a trappist glass. Dark amber poor with a nice thin frothy beige head. Aromas of molasses, yeast, caramel, roasted malts and a hint of vanilla and bananas. Definite alcohol presence in mouth, nice long lasting bitterness. Very hoppy beer. Nice dry, thick full bodied and lightly sweetened mouthfeel.

Prune juice pour with a cloudy haze. Head of maltball innards, well laced and tightly packed. Nose hinted around a almost "mint-like" chocolate with mild hops and a malty overlay. Taste followed, but impacted with some dope dark fruits here. This thing needs to be pumped up a bit more and would be exception. Ah shimmy, the 8% Alc is kicking in and the valium seems to be warming up. booya. On to das tripple ja? Igen? Nem? koszonom kerek:) raw almonds accompany this well. viszlat crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Poured a Reddish brown hue a bone color head which seem to have good retention. A fruity aroma mixed with notes of sugar and almost a leather hint to it. Flavor was smooth with caramel notes and subtle dried fruits. Finished with a decent amount of carbonation. larsniclas (7217) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2007
