Deep red pour. I like the term for a different rater "Mahogany." Aroma and flavor are both rather spicy with some grape and prune flavors thrown in. Might just be the bottle, but it seemed slightly wine like in its overall experience.

An intresting crossover of two styles in never imagined together but probably should have, seeing how nice they pair here in this beer. Dark ruby color with a fluffy head. Earthy aromas with notes of dark fruit and yeast. Malty, but not overly sweet flavor. Quite complex, with flavors of plum, carmel, and spicy hops. Finish is nice and dry with herbal tones. I can’t believe I waited as long as I did to sample this great beer. I wonder how it would age?

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 6, 2003
A dark red, earthy tone that is very murky. It has a frothy and large head with some lacing. The aroma is a light fruity smell with an alcohol touch. It is malty, smooth, and silky. It is fairly complex and dry on the end. There is also a slighty spicy touch. Very enjoyable

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2016
- dunkelbraun mit einem leichten Rotstich - sehr gute, anhaltende Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Datteln,Feigen, Rosinen, überreifen Äpfeln und Birnen, Marmalade, Sherry, Toffee und Wacholder - aber auch ein etwas zu durchdringender Alkohol-Touch steigt einem in die Nase - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Spur zu brausig - genau diese relativ starke Kohlensäurebeigabe verdirbt mir von Anfang an etwas den Spaß an diesem Bier - der Antrunk ist geprägt von einem überraschend schlanken Körper - die einzelnen Geschmacksnoten stehen gut erkennbar nebeneinander - aber wie beim Aroma scheint mir hier der Alkohol auch zu sehr durch - gegen Ende schwingt sich die Bitternis dann etwas in den Vordergrund und das Ganze dann endgültig unangenehm Fazit: Der Alkohol steht einfach zu sehr unangenehm im Vordergrund

ChrisSc (464) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2013
On tap 25cl into proper tulip glass Appearance: Dark amber brown, hazy. Thick pillowy head with a coating of lacing. Very pretty. Aroma: a little on the weak side. Caramel, toffee, berries maybe? taste: dry with slightly btter notes. Platae: very nice long finish with medium body. Good strong testure. Overall: very enjoyable, but I was hoping for more after having la chouffe. It could have been the bar, so i would like to try frmo the bottle next time. Lacked a bit of taste and aroma. Sill very good.

Dark brown, tall head, shrinks down quickly. Zesty, orange peal, leaves a grassy trace long after. Small tornado beads appeared near the end of the glass. Dry and earthy finish. Quite splendid.

ForlornHope (459) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep red-brown colour with a thin head. Complex aroma of earthy hop and nutty malt. Sweet taste to start from the malt, then a balancing bitterness. Malty, rich, licorice, slightly herbal and a nice dry finish. Tasty beer, not bad at all.

deusax (459) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 23, 2012
It’s typically the kind of belgium ale that i don’t like... So not objective on this rating. Strong bitterness/sourness, and not enjoyable palate.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours a syrupy brown color with a huge fluffy head into the tulip glass. Scents of malt, barley, dried fruits. Sweet, flavorful taste with some chocolate, raisins, plums, honey and cherries. A thick, coating mouthfeel with a nice, sweet finish. Tasty scotch ale.
