kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 6, 2008
750mL bottle, 2007 vintage. Pours a clear, medium reddish-brown color; decent light tan head with good retention and solid, mixed-bubbled lacing. Soft raisin and cola notes dominate the aroma, followed up by a solid yeastiness, dates, and light spicing; the alcohol is very well-hidden in the nose; loads of dried dark fruits and restrained sweetness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: good levels of carbonation; following the aroma, lots of dried dark fruits (raisins, dates), yeast, cloves, and white-pepper spiciness; a very restrained, intricate Belgian strong, although I wasn’t completely taken in by the depths of the malt character; very upfront in its dark fruit character, some spice, but lacking an appropriate level of density at the core; very good, but not nearly as good as many of my favorite Belgian strong ales; still, careful in its presentation considering its youth; just a touch rough around the edges. Long finish: dried dark fruits, solid yeast and dough coming through; soft ending; very well-hidden alcohol throughout.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep dark reddish garnet colour, creamy white head. The aroma is awesome. Loaded with rich toasted plums, toffee and rich sweet stone fruit. Very spicy and sweet with lots of clove, orange, dark burnt sugar, brown sugar and even a bit of vanilla and chocolate. So complex and so inviting. The palate is very soft and wheaty wit a silken quality that just lets the brew coat the tongue in silken deliciousness. Sweet dates, toasted sugar and lots of mintiness on the back. This stuff is really tasty. Warming lets the caramelly and plummy malts really come into harmony with the spicy yeast. Lightly peppery on the back. Man, I love this brewery.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
750ml bottle. 2007 edition. Dark brown wiht a nice layer of foam maintained by my Chimay glass. Warm spice and malt aroma, Dubble-like. Hard to taste 10% ABV but you can feel it after half a bottle. You can taste the dark candy-sugar, dark malt and a caramel-molasses touch. Nice spice residue on the tongue.

Nez malté de sucre brun, moyen de caramel aux notes terreuses et léger de pain, de levures fruitées (raisins, moyen de prunes), léger d’épices (muscade, léger de coriandre, notes de clou de girofle et de cannelle), d’alcool et de houblon herbeux. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture plutôt crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (raisins sucrés et aux notes vineuses, moyen de prunes, léger de cerises, traces de poires, de bananes, de pommes rouges et d’agrumes) accompagné d’un moyen goût épicé (cannelle, coriandre, léger de muscade, notes de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de sucre brun, de caramel légèrement rôti et aux notes terreuses ainsi qu’un léger goût de pain ainsi que des traces de chocolat et de sucre bonbon. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un moyen goût d’alcool doux et réchauffant jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve également une moyenne amertume provenant de levures épicées (poivre) et de houblon herbeux.
