Burgundy colour. Chocolatey, raisiny aroma. Sweet flavour with slight toffee character. Brown sugar finish. Far too sweet and tastes filtered...has a slick body rather than a full one and lacks complexity.
12oz bottle, pours a dark reddish brown with a half-inch beige head. Aroma is caramel malts and molasses. Flavour is caramel malts, raisins, dark fruits with a smoky, alcoholic finish. Very good. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 19, 2009
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a lovely, ruby brown body, looking clear, and topped by a creamy, finger-thick beige head that lasts. Dried fruits, salty licorice, brown sugar, some alcohol and a spicy hop note. Full-bodied, slighlty warming and quite fizzy in the mouth. There’s dried fruits, some fresh fruits, blue plums mostly, sugars, a little spicy touch, a fine bitterness and alcohol in the flavor. The finish is lasting, with a slight alcohol burn, dried fruits, sugars and a herbal bitterness. Some caramel and a little bready touch blends in all the way. A nice one, but not in the league of the best Belgians. Will certainly have more of this one though. (090419) jtclockwork (16444) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2010
Dark and muddy. Very tart and sour. Heavy on the palette. Some breads and cereal are also prevalent. Slight hint of butterscotch and vanilla. Rated 9/26/08 brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 21, 2013

35,5cl bottle. Thanks to Baggio. Pours deep amber reddish with a creamy lasting head and lacings. Nose is sweet of yeast, berries and red wine. Smooth and full bodied. Taste is sweet with a slight sour and vinous note. Lots of dark dried fruits such as plum, raisin and a little caramel and bubblegum. A vinous and warm sipper. Some syrup and sugar as it warms up. Very nice. Nearly quadruple style. FatPhil (15966) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2009

Deep brown, fizzy head. Gluey alcohol aroma, toffee too. Pleasant carbonation, but a bit fizzy. Toffee taste too, some glue, some alcohol. Spicing is non-descript and stale. Messed up and mucky.
Bottle, 9.4%. Sweet aroma, hint of vanilla. Sweet flavour, some alcohol and some brown sugar. A bit too sweet for me and not quite balanced by the alcohol. Sweet apricot. Benzai (15460) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red, dark amber to purple color, medium sized off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, sweetish, lightly iron, more sweetness. Taste malts, sweetness again, (Dutch) "taai-taai", slightly alcohol, some herbs or spices. Medium to full body, suitable carbonation. One of the best Belgian Strong Ales I’ve had I think, at least one of the best Belgian style beers from the US. Well done! Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
