Pours with a nice foamy head. Aroma has raisin accents. Malty, Balanced, dances on your tongue. One of the better belgians out there.

11.2oz bottle. Mostly sweet aroma with hints of dry and sour yeast. Both fruity and doughy. Raisins, plums, currants, brown sugar, gingerbread, shortbread, dry oak, toffee and caramel. A slight tartness at the end. Pours dark chocolate brown with a fizzy and creamy but thin off white head. Plenty of pitted fruit and dry and sour yeast flavors on the tongue. Brown sugar, white pepper, oak. Creamy, lively carbonation, finishing both sweet and tart.

Beautiful beer. Ive had this gem before, but first time rating it. Gorgeous pour - chocolate brown color, tan foamy head. Aroma is dominated by those gorgeous dried fruity notes that you love in a Belgian - prunes, plums or raisins. Malty body on the palate seduces your taste buds and makes it difficult to savor this one by drinking this slowly. I love it. Balanced, bold and beautiful. One of the best Belgians and one of the best overall for commercially available beers in the USA.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2007
Dark ruby. Sweet malty and fruity aroma. Complex flavor; malt, syrup, fruit... all in perfect balance. Alcohol is well hidden, scary. Extremely smooth. One of the best beers Ive ever tasted.

Pours a deep black with nice head. Great aroma and flavors of malt and some dark fruits. very much like a barley wine.

I had this a while ago. It was very sweet and had flavors of raisins and coffee. It tasted like a barley wine with less hops. It was good, but not quite as much as I expected out of the most expensive bottle of beer I ever bought.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 WOW. Worth the hype. Grocery store mispriced a few so I picked them up for $1.99 a bottle. Id buy 10 cases at that price! Somewhat malty, aroma is excellent. Alcohol hidden well for 11% - somewhat spicy/sugary, flavors of orange peel, caramel, delicious. Mouthfeel is top notch, this is how every beer should be produced. Now I need to get my hands on a Westy 12...
