A little light on the aromoa, but looks great with a nice head. Complex flavors of chocolate, Coffee and caramel. Very thick, Very rich tasting. Truly a great beer that really needs to be tasted over and over to get all the subtleties.

Bottle: Has a realy nice amber colour when poured into a trappist glass, with a great creamy head that lingers with great lacing qualities.. Great earthy aroma mixed with a hint of chocolate, raisin and rich yeast accompanied with a truly great taste that is strong on the alchohol but passified by the after taste that is slightly sweet yet mellow considering its strength of 11.3. It has a great texture with a delicate carbonation which gives it a creamier silkier feel to drink. A great Belgium beer..

hiddenvariable (210) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2007
bottle. pours a nearly opaque dark reddish brown with a huge tan head that rapidly fades to thin tan head, which lingers and laces nicely. big smell of dark cherries and raisins and other berries, with a touch of wood and a tiny hint of alcohol. taste is more dark fruit and wood, with a cola-like malt and hints of yeast. also a touch of alcohol, but that 11.3% is really well-hidden. finishes with a subtle dryness that hints at possible bitterness or sweetness but never really goes either way. medium body with a good amount of tiny carbonation for a creamy mouthfeel. the first time i tried this beer, it was the first beer id had that literally made me exclaim, "wow!" one of the best.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours a beautiful dark amber with a small but dense head with some nice lacing. Beautiful milk chocolate aroma, fruity and sweet. The taste does not disappoint: fig, dark plum, strong presence of alcohol, munich malt, some spicy hops (not the usual recessed hoppiness of many sweet Belgian ales) in the finish. Great carbonation, thin finish but nice mouthfeel overall.

Dark, dried-blood brown-red in color. Concentrated raisin, deep fruit, and chocolate earth-tones. Some malt and other hidden spices are all collected into a beautifully rich medium-heavy body. Good stuff.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2007
From bottle : Pours a dark brown mahogany color with a wonderful big two and a half finger foamy head that has some serious staying power and leaves great lacing that spiders all around the glass. Very aromatic with smells of dark fruits, malts and some spice. Nice medium body with some fruit flavor, spices, a little chocolate, and some alcohol tastes but not to overbearing. Alcohol becomes more noticable in the aroma as the beer warms. Very nice belgian overall.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 Hands down my favorite Belgian. What a beautiful beer here. Alcoholic, super sweet-complex and carbonated. Fantastic.

The bottle I drank had been cellared for 10 months. It was dark opaque in color with a very light tan head w/ very decent lacing on the glass. Aroma was very malty and Earthy. Complex, balanced flavor stuffed with maltiness. high carbonation with lingering yeast aftertaste. absolutely delicious.
