UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Fairly aged (8 years) sample: Dark-brown colored, small head. Malty nose, liquorice, port, very nice. Very complex flavor, Initially sweet, later on bitter with a sour touch, long-lasting dry finish. Almost like a British barley wine. At this age, absolutely phenomenal. Fresh: Excellent dark-brown appearance. Nice malty aroma, but not very strong. Full and malty taste, a bit Rochefort-like. Smooth finish. A very good one! Rating reflects aged sample.

Clear dark brown with a slim head. Very nice aroma; malt, dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and more. Taste is not a let down; similar elements. Full bodied, great mouthfeel, well hid alcohol apart from some late warming. Excellent.

Very good fruity dark brown beer. The smell is almost perfect and the after taste is nothing exept fruit.

A very nice thick brown ale. The caramel flavors really helped to put this one over for me. Another excellent Belgian

I really, really, really liked this stuff. It's much like a dopplebock. Dark, rich, and just oozes dried fruit and caramel in the aroma. A very rich, very strong, very good ale.

750 ml, with a cork that read 2001. Orange brown color, tan head. Spicey ginger, camel and candi sugar aroma. Flavor is malty, fruity, spicy and reminds me of wasabe. Might go well with sashimi. Hoppy finish with some alcohol warmth. I like this one.
