beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
My limited tasting abilities don't do this slightly sweet beer justice. Pours almost like a stout but without the lasting head. Lingering after-taste reminds me a a good red wine - full of flavour (some plums? some vanilla? not quite sure...) and very smooth and easy-drinking with the alcohol balanced nicely in the background. Fantastic beer - this is what Canada should be proud of.

This beer is epic! This and the Corsendonk XMas were the tops at the southern hootnanny in my opinion. I was so sloppy by the time I had this, I was loopy as hell, but the beer was good enough to taste and enjoy. It had the complex qualities of a world class belgian, yeast, alcohol, mellow fruits, plums, berries, candy sugar, but it went down so smooth and easily. The alcohol was there, but it was in the background, didnt really come out and interfere with everything else. Welcome to Texas La Terrible!

I love this almost as much as unibroue 10. This beer is very comparable to chimay blue. It tastes a little sweeter and is a little darker in color speckles of mud looked to be in the mix. The head vanished with in seconds of being poured..

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 Pop the cork and the ensuing escaping mist seems promising. Deep, dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma reminded me of root beer, a favorite beverage of mine. The flavor was totally unappealing. Might work for everyone else but I dumped it after half a glass.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Opened towards the end of the night, so while I was still able to pick out the flavors and aromas, my ability to put those thoughts into words was impaired. Creamy plum and roasted malt aroma. Big cola-like flavor with spices and a sharp dark fruit bite in the middle. Very carbonated and thick.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark oaky color with a faint tan head. Bready and sweet aroma. The flavor is heady and sweet. Nice alcoholic spike and fruity overtones with a slightly buttery palate.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Black oily body, little tan head. Typical unibroue aroma of yeastiness. Complex taste of blackberries, bitter fruitiness, hint of sourness. Oily palate. Great beer. Bottle.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Pours extremely dark, almost black. Head is moderate initially, quickly disappating. Aroma is sweet, yeasty and winey with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is slightly sweet initially, quickly giving way to complex plum and dark fruits, ending with a noticeable warming from the alcohol.

OberonTheifEMT (56) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Dark brown in color with a very active head. Pleasant aroma of currants with a hint of vanilla. An excellent Belgian style ale that makes for a wonderful companion on a cold winter evening. Extra points for being quite a value

TheBeerGod (6172) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Pours a rich brown with a small tan head. The nose is dark fruit, sugar, and spice. My tongue is overwhelmed by flavors such as candy sugar, sweetened malt, plums and raisins, and spice. The alcohol is present as well. The finish has some sharp edges to it but this is still damn good!
