PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle Vintage 2006: Pours a rusty brown auburn with a thick/dense tan head. The aroma has some dark Belgian malt character of toasted hints and dark fruits- fig, plum, vanilla, some spiciness (both spice and yeasty character) and an anise suggestion. Fluffy/crisp carbonation in the palate. The flavor has rich Belgian dark malt character. Smooth with toasted toffee, plum, dried figs, grape notes, toasted coconut shavings, some nondescript spiciness, a succinct earthy/peat-like note and a warm toasted finish. A very nice and complex Belgian Strong. I really like this brewery.

BrugsBierFestival - Dark brown beer with a thick creamy tan head. Lovely caramel, toffee and dark fruit aroma with similar smooth taste - cracking beer.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Brown pour, tan head. Malty aromas of caramel, toffee, dark fruit and certainly molasses. Flavor follows suit with a great mouthfeel and flavors of spices, dried fruit, caramel and nice warming malt profile. cheers!

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2009 On tap in Ghent. Pours dark copper brown with a beige head. Aroma’s of caramel, molasses and more molasses. Velvety silk texture. Very soft on the swallow. Good beer.

On draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a very dark bronze with a dense Belgian head. Aroma has dark fruits, brown sugar, black cherries and just a bit of citrus. Spices come through more in the flavor, giving it more of the holiday-ale feel. Great palate - not overcarbonated, very smooth. Great.

DuffMan (9741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
Pours a deep red-orange amber, capped with a thick creamy tan coloured head that leaves incredibly thick lace down the glass. One must fight through the foam to get at the aroma underneath! This beer is big on sweet sugary caramel malt, with cooked apples, orange brandy, yeast, and subtle spices part of the complex picture. The finish is a little boozy and warm, and surprisingly bitter.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Draught at BTAH, into tulip. Pours cloudy brown, somewhere between the colors of dark and milk chocolate, with a full, fluffy, 2 finger off-white head. Some wispy lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma is breaady, yeasty, slight sweet, bit of alcohol. Taste is caramelized brown sugar and a big spicy yeastiness, some roasty bread crust, moving to a full, rich bready, spicy character, with sweet figs in there also. Spicy alcohol makes itself felt also. Finishes with a sweet spiciness - notes of cinnamon, candied figs in the finish. Mouthfeel is soft and lush, softly carbonated, creamy, light but feel. Word class beer, one of my winter favorites.

Crushed with Jakebra. Highly carbonated is light and tickling on the tongue, and I like to be tickled. Lots and lots of dark, sweet fruits in this. A absolute pleasure to drink, and that ABV is marvelous and obvious after a few sips.

Sample @ BBF ’08, Boston. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, and a bit of yeast detectable as well. Flavor is dark fruit and yeast, dissolving into malt and an alcohol burn at the end. The beer was very lively and maintained a great characteristic throughout. Excellent.
