Bomber. Murky dark brown pour with a small ring head. Aroma is cinnamon, plum, and yeast. Full flavored. Yummy. benfergy (248) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - APR 13, 2014
The aroma has some well caramelized malt, plus a note of anise. I taste some alcohol as I sip the beer. The taste is well balanced. The palate is very smooth. Overall, a very good beer! rxeight (3189) - Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2014
$5 750. How can you go wrong. Dark pour with a very creamy head. Very dark very Belgian. Bananas and chocolate. Still not a huge fan of the Belgian but this was alright beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 10, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear ruby red with a moderate-large tan head that lasted until nearly mid-glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast with spice and plum also noted. The flavor is malt, Belgian yeast, spice, plums and raisins. Mild bitterness at the finish. Enjoyable. jb (3311) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 4, 2014
one of the best deals going is the Trader Joe anniversary series. Wow, what a beer for the price. Very dark , clear, orange highlights, with a thick head, and foamy retention. Nose is very spicy in a unique way. Also some anise. Taste is similar, anise dominated. Dry, quaffable, with small bubble tingly carbonation. Not as complex as I’d hoped but still very good and very drinkable.

Bottle. Dark, dark ruby with tan bubbly head. No lacing to speak of. Nose is Belgian. Taste is sweet with clove and ginger. Lots of carbonation. dalekliz (923) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a big off-white head that fades to a ring. Sweet-spicy aroma, of malt, preserved citrus, cloves, yeast. Taste is sharp and spicy, malt, sugar, cloves, cardamom, ginger. Nice carbonation. Lingering spicy sharpness that ends a bit watery. Refreshing and tasty. Bierkrug (2129) - - MAR 30, 2014
750ml bottle at Trader Joe’s Sarasoda Fl. Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice sugar with some dark fruit. Flavor is a bit sugary sweetness with some caramel and molasses. Palate is more sweetness with some fruit and spice. OK Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
The aroma is spicy dark fruits and malt. Nice malt and spice flavors mixed with some fruit. Big carbonation as expected. Excellent beer.

Dark brown. Dark malts, fruitiness and coriander on the nose. Sweet front, light yeasty character, and with a drier finish. Good, I like the slight orangey note.
