Bottle. this raring is from notes that i took at Lumpys house. Thanks, Brother. Bottle. POurs a solid black with a thin light brown head. has a yeasty earthy aroma. flavor is bitter and earthy with a dried plum/raisin taste. this has a malt finish of sweet caramel. finish is very warming. the overall taste of this is a warming sweet citrus, this also has a touch of citus as it warms. there are also developing flavors of spice to this. My opinion to people trying this is to give it two chances, one when first opened, another about thirty minutes later. You will experience two different beers this way. They are both good.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Bottle. Flavors of alcohol, rasins, malt, carbonation, currant, and dried cherry abound. Finish is dry with a perfect alcohol warmth. This is good stuff!

DocLock (10574) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours burgundy/dark brown. Fruity, spicy aroma with a taste of fruits, mead, cognac, spice, molasses, and soy. Wonderfully complex. As it warms the alcohol becomes more noticable, but at the same time additional flavors peek out like cherries, nuts, and chocolate. This is a great beer.

Deep brown/black with a lot of carbonation but tan head fades rapidly. Bready aroma. Flavors of dark fruits with strong yeast finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Pours a black color with a nice off-white head that leaves thick lacing on the glass. Spicy aroma, with a nice belgian style, dark fruits, and a good hopped backing. The taste was very sweet at the start, hints of dark fruit and fig, lots of spice and a mildly bitter end. Great brew.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 15, 2004
Black like night with thick head. Aromas of cream chocolate, sweet prune/raisen, spice and a cherry quality. Molasses, cherry, honey, fig, melon?, flavors erupt on the palate. Fun beer to drink.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Dark dense brown appearance, moderate short-lived foam. Malty, roasty aroma with mint leaf and coriander spice. Sweet clove palate, minty fresh, dries out mid-palate to a coffee roastiness. Malt and spice linger throughout.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2004
This was outstanding. I only managed to get a small sample of this but wow, it was incredible. The aroma was that of dried fruits, maybe raisens or figs, and the appearence was dark brown without a head. The flavor followed with the dried fruits and a nice balance of malts. This is an incredible beer and one definitely worth trying. Highly recommended.

750ml- Bottled Sept 9, 2003: Pours with an adequate, frothy head that in an instant is history......it looks and pours like Pepsi in my glass. The Unibroue yeast gives such great aromas: in this one dough, berries, plums, and prunes?; smooth, sweet and full bodied, with flavors that include dark fruits (plum, dates, raisins) chocolate, coffee, tobacco, and cola; it has a slightly medicinal and pleasant phenolic quality; its feels rather flat on the palate, though theres certainly carbonation going on. This is easily one of the most drinkable Belgian Strongs Ive had. The complexity, flavor profile, and well hidden alcohol makes this an outstanding brew with the main flaw being its (perceived) flatness that subtracts from the appearance and palate scores (this could be in the top 5 for me, otherwise). Outstanding!
