Bottle, as pictured, purchased a few months ago. Poured a pretty deep mahogany brown, though not opaque. A good dark fruity sweetness to it without the spicy notes of a tripel/quad. Really easy to drink for the style, didn’t feel the alcohol content either.

Pours a dark, dark amber with near zero head. Slightly oily taste of overly sweet licorice, raisins and plum with low carbing. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and grainy. For my taste if the SG was dropped a bit at the end to ease the sweetness and dry it out just a tad it would improve the overall flavor.

3/5/12. 750mL bottle via cbfobes! Nice ruby pour with an okay khaki pour. Sweet aroma with a bit of anise, dark fruits, and a bit of tart licorice. Sweet flavor with more sweet licorice and a bit of tartness... oddly reminds me of a Jager bomb... hmmm...

bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Capped 750 from Half Time. Pours dark ruddy amber with a few beige bubbles for head. Huge dark fruit aroma. Plums (prunes) and raisins. Med + body. Flavor is prune/date/raisin with a lot of darker roast malt. Doppelbock it is. Sweetish. But there’s enough fruit here to stand in for hop. Beer this good doesn’t need to be very bitter.

drfabulous (7948) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 3, 2011
750 thanks to Matt. Didn’t realize this was 11 %! Big sugar brown sugar taste. Lots of caramel. Very sweet. Almost barley wine in taste. Not very boozy.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2011
25.4 oz bottle. Mostly clear mahogany brown with beige frosting. Nose is maple, toasted nuts, figs and dates. Thick and silky with a lightening buzz. Kind of raw but works in a rustic way. Taste is almond, wild grape and burnt sugar. A fun brew to savor over a few hours.
