This is pretty much the king. Low carbonation with a nose of alcohol, raisns, and other dark fruits. This beer has a lot going on. All of this is complimented by just enough bitterness to put this as THE classic beer. I dont know if there is a better beer. But the search continues.

Really kicks you in the ass. I dont know if Id go so far as to give it a 100, but definitely a beer Id get again. A big fan of quadrupels, this one has hints of chocolate and fruit.

11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown color with slight head. Aroma of dark fruits and malt. Alcohol is present but well integrated. Dark fruit flavor mix with caramel tones. This is as good as it gets.

Compact and creamy foam, I like it! round aroma, very long end, pleasant. Balanced, even if the alcohol taste is persistent. Maybe the n.8 is slightly better.. 33cl bottle, 11,3vol

Spied this beer while cruzing the aisles at the local grocery store and remembered the name... and was not dissapointed Appearance is of dark carmel with a full head that lingers a lacey goodness throughout the glass. Dont know if the look gets any better. Smells of slightly sweet malty with an almost herbal overtones. Has a nice mouthfeel of balance between creamy and carbonation. Taste is very easy and comforting with an alcohol hit thats almost medicinal, but more comforting than disturbing. Malt and carmel bring a second flavor and then leaves the alcohol to linger yet not overpower. Leaves you wanting more.

Powerfull aroma of red fruits, chocolate plms and roasted malt. Fullbodied beer with chocolate, herbs, sweet malt, and an alkoholic finisch.

Kingtubby (18) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Dark black with almost no head. Heavy, fruity aroma. The taste is rather complex with many flavors present. The flavor starts with a bit of sweetness and I then get a bit of spice. you can taste the alcohol in the after taste but not enough to bother me. Overall I found this to be a very enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 Ive had this beer over two dozen times probably since first trying it. This is a regular beer for me and my go-to beer when Im in the mood for a dark Belgian. Ive had several blind tastings with this versus St Bernardus 12 and this is the clear winner I think. My first rating for this was a little simplistic so I wanted to do this beer justice by rating it again.

Pours very dark brown with a large and excellently retained off-white head. Lacing and carbonation are intense. Aroma is piney, sweet, plums, vanilla, lavender with some chocolate and raisins in there for good measure. Strawberry jam, figs. Just a great and unique aroma, super complex. Taste is similar to the aroma, matching its complexities and containing the same adjectives for the flavor. This is amazing.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2011 . Magnificent dark cloudy appearance. Big aroma, sweet with caramel and currents. Full, bodiy, quite syrupy. it tastes elegant, nuanced and restrained, yet it is still a big beer. Mild roasted flavours, caramel and currents again, also spicy and fruity and some vanilla. Tha alcohol is warming on the finish.
