what is this stuff, not a scottich,not a brown ale, not even an "abbey" ...its like a strange mix of them all, a big disappoint with this, after having la chouffe in amsterdam, this is a bastard, a good beer yes, but not near great. some wine like qualities, in taste and smell...has a nice puddle of head, in the chimay glass it had a nice boob puddle. If I hadn’t paid $12 for the bottle i would be alittle nicer to this beer, MAYBE on tap ONE day but, if u can find it on discount do it!

Tap. Brown, somewhat cloudy. Aroma is suble and dry. Has some nice basement action going on, along with some grass. Flavor is malty and delicious, with some spices and dark fruits present. Yum yum.

75cl bottle. Coudy mahogany in color. Light brown head. Diminishing within minutes. Nice body, medium. Low in flavor, but smooth. I would recommend to others, but not a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewery, very dark brown with a large bubbly beige head. A dry malty aroma, some licorice in there, and vinuous notes. A medium and smooth mouthfeel with rich malty flavours and a light bitter finish. Was hoping for more, though still good.

Pours a dark brown with a nice lacing off-white head. Spicy more so in scent than in flavor. Hints of fruit and earthy yeast.

Hazy Amber with fine white head. Malty aroma and taste - nuts & dark fruits dominates. Sweetness. A bit "earthy". Little alcohol feel. Pleasant spicy hoppy finish. Good Belgium!

33 cl bottle. Best by end of 2006. The beer pours to a hazy dark brown body with no head. The aroma is very earthy, nutty, yeasty, minerals, wood, and some sort of peat. The flavor is peaty, woody, nutty, earthy, minerals, and something strange. But, all in all it tastes decent. Strangely alluring.
