IMY 100TH RATING!!!!! I am not the biggest fan of any of the Belgians that Ive had so far. The only two that Ive really liked are the Chimay Blue and the De Dolle Stille Nicht. This has just surpassed those on my list... Dark murky pour with a huge tight bubbly head.. Smells very dark and fruity. Definitely note the plums and raisins. Very sweet smelling. Tastes very much like it smells. Very sweet, lots of fruit with a nice spiciness as well and can also denote the alcohol in there too. This is definitely a sipper at 11% but it was one that I enjoyed immensely and will actually go back and buy more of which is something that Ive never done with a Belgian.

amishcaravan (247) - Winona, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Very full scent with overtones of raisins and caramel. It looks as a real beer should look with a dark brown color. Very smooth taste with flavors of caramel and raisins. Full flavor with a carbonated feel in the mouth and throat. Aftertaste is sweet and pleasant. Purchased at Bodega in LaCrosse, WI.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Purchased at Bodega Brewpub in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. Poured a dark amber/brown with a quickly dissapating white head. Aroma of dark fruit and wine like characters. tastes of raisons, light chocolate, pretty hoppy. reasonably sweet aftertaste. Alcohol hidden pretty well, especially for 11.3% ABV. has champagne like carbonation. Exceptionally smooth finish. I can see why this is one of the top beers in the world. Would buy again.

This beer is a an opaque brown with a beautiful creamy head that subsides to a laceing. The beer smells of toasty roasty chocolate and crystal malt and tastes very similar. The taste is smooth with creamy roasted malt finish. A caramel flavor with Belgium yeastyness is noticeable. The mouthfeel is soft with a smooth maltyness, light medium body and delicate carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Several 11.2 oz bottles purchased at Rozis Wine House in Lakewood Ohio. Pours a dark brown with malt colored head. Raisins, figs, yeast and dark chocolates were the most noticeable flavors. Nice, warming finish. One of the finest beers I have ever enjoyed.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2007
0.33 l bottle. Mahagony color with creamy head. Sweetish fruity aroma with figs, prunes, raisins, caramel and rose. Sweet flavor with tart fruitiness, dark fruits, toasty malt, chocolate, vanilla and fair amount of soft warming alcohols featuring rose and pepper. My personal favourite. It is suprising how alcohol can taste so good.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle from Devonshire Cat, Sheffield. Pours cloudy dark brown with a fairly tight off-white head. Aroma is candi sugar, raisins, and yeast. Tastes of dark fruit and some caramel/molasses, then dries out a little with some cinnamon and other spices. Some warming at the end, but its hard to believe its 11.3.
