Bottle share. Clear amber. Spicy dark fruit aroma. Alcohol and fruit malt taste. Nutty. This is more of an American strong. Where's the "Belgian"?
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 (207) - 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. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
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 (14555) - 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.

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 (3981) - 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. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep tawny amber with a thin tan head. Big sweet malt on the nose, but it’s nearly blown away by the alcohol and warm cherries. Big and sticky. Medium bodied, sticky malt, warming alcohol, cherries, toast, a bit of yeast. Big warming alcohol into the finish, warm and sticky again, more cherry notes. The moment they stick this in a barrel with some cherries, someone is going to geek out about it. That someone is probably not me, since I’m not about that life, but someone is, and they’ll love it. This is big, unapologetic, and tasty. donandres (527) - Bayombong, PHILIPPINES - MAR 8, 2016

22 oz bottle poured. Pours a reddish brown with a ton of foam head. Candy sweet caramel malt with a bit of maple. Soft cherry, plum and other dark fruit flavors throughout. This was a little rough at first for me, but it grew on me a ton as it went. Bit of an earthy flavor and dusty finish. Very unique. Not bad.
