At the 2007 Big Beer, Belgians, & Barleywines Festival in Vail. Really delicious. This was an opaque brown with an off white head. Spices and wine-like aromas. Flavor was a surprising strawberry! Caramel medicinal chocolate punches throughout, but that strawberry taste was a kicker! This is great beer.

Bottle. Dark brown color with brown head. A very nutty beer both in taste and aroma. Notes of roasted caramel that works very well with the belgian yeast. Balanced with spices that makes this beer a beauty.

Small squatty bottle from State Line (I should have sprung for the corked, capped bottle). The pour is turbid deep ruby with 2-finger khaki head that is indeed compact and firm, like my mistress’ fun bags. The aroma is immense, with notes of red wine grapes, caramel malt, toffee, port wine, strawberry, and spicy floral herbs. The taste is caramel malty up front, giving way to a fruity red winey grape, berry, and chery mix, all of it rather tart and not sweet. The mid-palate and warming effects give tastes of a solid Trappist strong ale. State Line has about 6 of these left in both small and large sizes, and you guys only have about 2 weeks left to beat me to them!

Pours a deep dark reddish brown, with a head of mass. Nose of different spices, and various malts. The aroma has much more kick than the flavor. A great brew!

Bottled, 75cl champagne cork. An unclear, reddish brown beer with a tan head. Nice roasted aroma with some caramel. The roastiness is a bit toned down in the flavor, and there’s also some sugar and cellar, as well as caramel. Fullbodied, sweet mouthfeel and a nice, sweet and spiced finish. Nice one. (061229)
