Tasted at the brewery and took home a 22 oz bottle. Poured into a Pints for Prostates stem glass. Pours brown with head and lace. Aroma of dark malts, roasty caramel, slight peat. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, candy sugar, slight sweet bread, slight bitter nuts, minerals, light molasses. Overall rich, flavorful, complex with some challenging flavors, but for a Belgian dark strong beer lover, it's tasty. BuckeyeBoy (9219) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2017
On tap at Odin brewing. Pours out a dark amber topped with a tan head. Nose is belg candy some spice and a little pit fruit. Taste is more of the nice sweet pit fruit some spice and a touch of belg candy. AnokaBrewer (223) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2017
22 ounce bottle. Brown in color. Not much of an aroma. Taste is sweet with a very slight bitter finish. Tastes very light for a 9% ABV beer.

Has an amber-brown colour. Bubbly head. Crackery, lightly toasty nose. So it looks and smells nothing like a tripel. Sweet, toasty, just a light ester note. This has no particular Belgian influence, but when you adjust to the fact that you’re drinking a strong Brown Ale, you realize it’s pretty good at that.

Deep cherry red. Candied sugars, toast, light spice, ripe dark fruit, and a background chocolate malt profile. Different and interesting. Enjoyable. djd07 (16461) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark amber with creamy white head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit and fig. Medium body, figs, licorice, toasted malt, boozy, very good. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
Clear dark amber pour with large off white head. Aroma of caramel, sugar cane, fruits and slight hops. Taste of toffee, caramel malts, slight fruits and hops on the finish. Full bodied, fizzy carbonation, cloying syrupy mouthfeel, hop extract. This beer got better as the carbonation died down and as it warmed closer to room temp, still below average though. beastiefan2k (4245) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep tawny amber with a thin tan head. A bit of burnt Belgian malts in the flavor. Some lightly alcoholic malt syrup sweetness, not too bad, not estry. I like he burnt malt, could us less sweetness less syrupy character. I also think a bit of oxidation would help.
