nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at the Malt House, Madison. Ruby red-brown color, a hair shy of being opaque. Thin, off-white head. Lots of berries and dark fruit nuances in the flavor. Rich pungent dark malt as well. Ends with a mild sour cherry finish. Quite unique. Smooth and easy drinking, hides the alcohol with Belgian expertise beneath the mild sourness.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours a beautiful transparent ruddy amber with a medium beige head...aroma is massivelt fruity, apple, grape, plum...caramel malt and wood...flavour is like candy, sugar, raisin, caramel corn, bread, the slightest hop bitterness that is quickly fleeting and you are left with brown sugar essence...at no point was this sticky or cloying at all, it was like an open-faced caramel sandwich made out of clouds...incredibly odd and very tasty...

Bottle from the bar next to the train station in Poperinge... while waiting for the train. Pours dark amber with a medium creamy brownish head. short retention. Aroma is big raisins, really sweet. Some red fruits and hops. Some lacing not much. Taste is really sweet, raisins, prunes and some hops. Quite refreshing even if very sweet.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
The aroma resembles the sweet whiff you intake before sipping on an American blended whiskey (like Jack). The rest of the beer parallels caramel taffy, with a caramelized flavor and a thick, chewy mouthfeel that sticks all over. The flavor ends reminding me of sipping on a freshly mixed Jack & Coke with ice... very specifically.

So says the label "The key to heaven". No argument from me. Best before date of 14 July 2007. This one poured a really BIG foamy tan head and the colour was a cloudy dark copper. This had the most incredible lacing Ive ever seen; it was simply massive! The aroma was of both fruits and spices. Taste - merely terrific, and a not so shabby aftertaste either, with some caramel popping up.
