Radiant copper color with an excellant head which left a pleasant lacing. I picked up aromas of strawberry, plum, bready yeastiness, and other various fruits. Fruity flavors, hints of clove and spices, banana, and perhaps a tiny bit of floralness of hops, but just a twinge. I really enjoyed the taste, it was simply a pleasure to drink. Medium bodied with little carbonation in the mouthfeel, pretty smooth going down. Almost seemed sessionable, however, at 8% you wouldn’t last long.

bottle at louie’s in dallas. Nice sweet malt aroma with caramel flavor and slight spice. Good beer. Paid too much for it at louie’s though.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter brown amber with a thin light beige head; Aroma of brown sugar malted booze. Flavor is excellent spiced rich in figs & coriander. Thinking malted dark fruits with a touch of barnyard funk. Blended beautifully.

Ótima cerveja. Aroma forte e adocicado, cor viva acobreada, límpida. Cerveja equilibrada e complexa. Final levemente adocicado que combina muito bem com o álcool presente em boa quantidade.

330ml in Kwak glass at Toad in the Hole. Clear amber; an exciting pour raises a medium yellowish head. Enticing nutty, caramelly aroma. Flavor is a slight disappointment - the beer is rather restrained with yeast character and devoid of hop. Finish is clean and slightly sweet.

very interesting glassware. sweet with good body and well balanced. rich like an 8% beer should be, but cant taste the alcohol. nice.

Medium amber beer with a fizzy off-white head that dissipates slowly with an audible crackle. Strong nose of apple cider, soy sauce, and vinegar. Flavor is a bit less complex than the nose with an overwhelming muskiness that somewhat burns the pallet and masks the other underlying flavors. Some sweetness does eventually come through, along with the apple flavor, but they are subdued in comparison. Decent beer, but not my favorite Belgian ale by a long shot.

Clear brown/amber colour with a thin white head. Smells soapy, maybe a hint of melon. Sweet toffee flavour. Light fizz. Bit too sweet for me.
