750mL bottle, KW tasting, thanks to matt7215. 2002 vintage I believe. Pours a dark reddish brown, nice looking. The aroma features chilli peppers, more spice, cinnamon, fruity esters and nice sweet malts. The flavour is very nice, same as above, well blended, but with some peat, toffee/caramalt, earthy hops. Malty complexity adds a lot of layers to this tasty beer. Very drinkable despite the high abv. Very well refined and everything works well together, nothing over-powers, quite a good beer. Thanks Matt!

Very blah beer. Aroma is boring, some fruit notes. Taste is sweet with not much else

LilBeerDoctor (3857) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 On tap at Sunset Grill. Pours brown with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light fruits. Flavor is initially lots of sweet malt with slight spices. Kind of bland and too sweet also. Meh. 6/4/6/3/12 (3.1/5)

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
Dark brown body that seems to be purple in some light, a tall tan cap floats on top that lasted a few minites. Mild alcohol in the nose. Aroma seems fairly standard for the style but not as good as most. To much apple!!! But the cloves are nice. Strange the flavour is very full but light, I think its less malty then some others. Lots of nice spice in this mostly cloves. Figs, plums and a very mild alcohol presence round out the flavour. To sweet for my liking and to light on the pallet. After taste has a roasted coconut quality. My marks seem to low, but this brew just doesn’t turn my crank. uggg.... I’m now drunk

750ml bottle from Khans, Indianapolis. Pours beautifully, with a long lasting head. Aroma of fruit and berries. Flavour is fruit and sweet, almost like drinking a berry pie. Finish is alcoholic warmth and sugar. Very good.

Dark brown look with a light brown head. Powerfull fruity aroma with brown suger notes. Flavor is sweet and alchoholic with a great amount of fruity esters. Straight forward and solid belgian.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2009
750ml bottle: Rusty brown pour with a pillowy head that settles into a long lasting ring. Moderate lacing. Very nice plum and caramel aroma. The body is thick, chewy but very drinkable. Lots of buttery sugar, light cocoa, dark fruits, candied fruits. Yum.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Tap at City beer. Pours with a dark brown color and a smallish head. Beer needs to warm up bwefore it really shines. Nice aromas of dark fruit and bread, flavors of toffee, strawberries and cramel togther with some dough. A bit of alcohol hotness but fairly easily drinkable considering the ABV.
