A very beauitful and very dark amber. Almost non-transparant. Great color. It has a fruity, malty, slight alcohol smell. Very well balanced and great. Just beautiful. Looking forward to this. Wow, very nice. Malty, fruity and a littel alcohol taste. Just like the smell. But a little more complex. At least to me it is. beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2005 I really liked this Belgian Ale. Surprised its rated so low nothing earth shattering or ground breaking but, still good brew for the style. Roasted malts, sweet, and yeasty flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry. omhper (25093) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2004
Bottled. Almost black, small head. Aroma of chocolate and fruit.Lively with sparkling mouthfeel. Estery with lots of flavours. Fresh and complex. I really like this beer. lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours an opaque dark brown with a big rocky tan head. Smell is yeasty, fruity apple, spicy (clove and cinnamon).
Tastes of ripe banana, clove and yeastiness. Sour apples and hints of lemon. Mouth is lighter than you would expect but still lightly sticky. Pretty damn good. The stronger big brother of the Irresistible Blonde. Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Aged for about a year. Very deep brown in color, different dark fruits going on like plum, prune, and raisin with fig and nut. Somewhat spicy very smooth finish. Thanks to Boutip for a trade long ago.

Bottled (from lahoublonnaire.be). Very dark brown colour with minor head. Aroma is raisins, some mild alcohol, spices, yeast, dark berries and licorice. Flavour is caramel malts, dark berries, some slight oak barrel, mild licorice and some slight alcohol. Gets better the warmer it gets. At room temperature very pleasant. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2009
pours dark brown, off white head quickly becoming flat.
Aroma, darf fruits, strong malt/caramel nose, some roast and forward notes of licorice.
Taste, malty, caramel are just strong and very enjoyable, dark fruits, raisins/prune, candi sugar light chocolate and just prominent licorice/réglisse mouthfeel.
Interesting and complex.

Deep ruby in color with a small white head. Aromas os dark fruit,yeast and taosted malt. Flavors of sweet toasted malt,dark fruit and caramel/toffee. Sammy (12178) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
Molasses colour, smell and taste.Big long lasting tan head. Much superior overall to the nauseating blonde. Some malt and flavorings that overcome mid-sip syrup and yeast. Carmel malt brown sugar. Something different from Unibroue. Spice is moderate. This was interesting for after supper. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2004
