On tap with a nice foamy head. Caramel mousse notes but not too sweet. A satisfying and complex brew that I would order again.

Bottle: Pours a dark brown color with a nice creamy head. Compared to other Belgian Strong Ales this one has a little less body. However, the flavors are nice and the beer is overall, although I hate using this adjective, refreshing.

CEZ (413) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 28, 2006
Dark brown body, medium to tall off-white head. Rich warm aroma, mostly caramel, dried fruit, wooden and smoky notes. Taste is fruity (prunes), roasted grain, syrup, but never too sweet. Body is smooth. Slightly yeasty in the finish. Very nice belgian dark ale.

This is a damn fine brew. The aroma was full of fresh and dried fruitiness, some caramel, sweet malts, and yeast. Flavors were huge, complex, and very well-balanced. Dark candy sugar, sweet malts, a yeasty breadiness, dried fruits (cherries, apricots, dates), fresh fruits (apples, pears)... just about everything I could ask for in a Belgian Strong Ale. The mouthfeel was smooth and velvety, and just slightly dry. Pretty damn good, for sure.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2006
on tap in Lille: aroma was yeast, malt, and some alcohol. was an amber color with a white head. flavor showed too much alcohol and not enough malt and hops. some peppery and yeasty notes. Didnt really enjoy the bit of the alcohol. fairly active palate. Its okay, compares to Leffe.

Bottle at Fogg N Sudds in Vancouver, BA, Canada. After so many mediocore ales and lagers, I was happy to have a legimate Belgian Strong Ale on a recent trip to Vancouver. Dark amber pour with a large foamy puffy white head. A strong malty aroma with a nice malty taste and a strong bite. It also has a deep slow burned in aftertaste that cements the flavor. This is certainly not my favorite belgian strong but I cant say anything bad about it either.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 Bottle at Vielle Ardennes in Bouillon (Belgium), a dark cola-brown colour with a pillowy white head - that laced well down the glass. A nutty aroma with roasted malt. A sweetness in the mouth that builds through the swallow. Strong molasses flavour.

Draft @ Sharpedge Creekhouse. Dark brown pour. Fluffy off-white head. Nice lacing on glass. Aroma was of caramel, spices, and malt. Not overpowering, not to faint either. Flavor was bready, and sweet, caramel, and spices, oaky and slight hints of vanilla. As it warmed the alcohol came through, but not to much and yeast came through. Chewy mouthfeel. Finish was a little dry. Overall I enjoyed the brew.
