06 edition. 11.2oz bottle-pours a disappearing off white head and cloudy brown color. Aroma is funky, medium malt-toffee/maple sugar, tart fruit. Interesting. Taste is medium malt-toffee/maple sugar, wood, tart fruit, spice/herbal hops. Nice sipping beer, goes down easily. Good effervescence. Kind of a Belgian Strong Brown. Thanks to Wasatch for trade with Joe-jwc215 & me. kwatoko (43) - BELGIUM - APR 11, 2009
Bottle. This is one of my favourites. Pours with a firm brown head, the beer itself is very dark brown. Aroma is sweet, with strong traces of liquorice. First taste is very sweet caramelly, with some spices added. In the aftertaste there’s just a small hint of hops, with the caramel-taste sticking in your mouth somewhat. jbuzz (838) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2009

Poured brown with a white head. Aroma of fruit and cinnamon. I can’t pick out the fruit in this. Very tasty with a spice finish.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 Deep dark reddy brown beer that pours with a large coffee coloured head that fades to a thin constant covering.

2007 bottle. I absolutely love this stuff, and I usually don’t like belgians because of the acidity. This one doesn’t have the acidity and I love it. Dark in color, almost black, nice stiff head that lasts. Aroma of malts, belgian spice, dark fruits, just awesome. Flavor is spectacular and has all the same flavors as in the aroma plus some hints of chocolate. Squeaky clean palate, zero bitterness. Awesome!
