Oak, caramel, and scotch nose. Hazy amber. Long lasting head, nice lace. Sweet malt, caramel. Some spice, heavy body, but carbonation and warm alcohol gives it a long smooth finish. Yeast flavor not as pronounced as other Belgians, but really nice beer.

An amber beer with a beatiful beige head. Aroma is yeasty, notes of caramel and toffee. Taste is malty and sweet, hints of caramel. Grassy and warming finish.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2008
Amber with a fine sized head. Sweet malty caramel aroma, nice but a little weak. Caramel yeasty flavour, nutty some hop balance and a gentle tart sensation. Quite a nice beer, and more than just an unusual glass

Háromféle malátából főzött itóka.Színe sötét "narancsos" krémes habbal.Ízében ott a kandiscukor és maláta plusz egy leheletnyi konyak.Az alkohol erejét szinte alig érezni.Utóíze keserédes,itatja magát.Jól lehet beszélgetni mellette.Külön élmény a saját poharából és szertartásosan kortyolgatni!A pohárnak és az ital nevének külön története van,de az hosszú!Majd máshol.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Botle. 330ML. Pours a reddish amber with creamy off white head. Aroma is yeasty and malty with a harsher metallic touch to it. Flavor is moderately sweet with a nice maltiness and caramel quality laced with an undefined spiciness. Finish is very alcohol dominated and lightly veg sweet leaning towards unpleasant but with too much of a belgian quality to ruin it completely. Palate is nice all around with an active and light carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Can’t get over this overbearing metallic flavor though as well as slight astringency in the finish.

I thought that this was a very enjoyable experience. I received this as a gift, so I was a little nervous. This has a great head color and a wonderful aroma.
