I’m not that crazy about this one but it could be that the Belgian Strong Ales are not my cup of tea. The aroma is of toasted dates and the head is not holding. This is being enjoyed in a goblet so the aroma and taste of a Belgian should be accentuated. The first impression of the taste is dark Belgian candy sugar...very sweet. It does finish with a nice light tartness but follows with an alcohol aftertaste is subtle but noticeable.

Poured from an 11oz bottle into a tulip glass. Dark amber color with all sorts of funky shit floating about. Aroma is alcoholy and peach. Flavor is abrasive and off. Overall, not good.

Clear and light, with a good sized frothy head. Smells like gym socks. Medium bodied, with a creamy mouth feel.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 A delight, very spicy, even though it was not too aromatic. Drunk from the original Kwak glass....very interesting

Bottle: Clear orange gold with a yellowy white head. Straong, heavy phenolic aromas tending to the darker side of the spectrum. Some fleshy fruit too (pineapple? grape?) and lots of juicy tangy wheat. In the mouth I got peach and pear notes under a minty clove and spcy wheat banana chorus. A noticable reisny presence too. Nice, and a little different.

Deep golden/amber color. Heavy malty aroma. Taste is also a bit too malty, with a slight fruit flavor.

iosonomarco (41) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 28, 2006
Al naso è dolce, maltata, con notevoli e invitanti sentori fruttati (uva, ciliege) e floreali. Al palato la prima cosa che si nota è un intenso sapore di caramello con sentori di miele, poi con la degustazione salgono ti tono il malto e il fruttato. Il retrogusto è piacevolmente amarognolo.

Bottle. Beautiful dark amber colour, with a very medicine/alcoholic nose. Not so vibrant on the nose or the tongue. Somewhat tasty, but I’ve most definitely had better. Not as fruity or flavourful as I would like.

Bottle at Saloon, Amsterdam. A reddish and strong ale with fruity and alcohol scent (not good). Taste of malts and berries. Decent enough.
