Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus through Belgianshop.com. Pours brown with an awesome tan head. Aroma of spices, fruit, citrus, and yeast. The flavor is fruit, yeast, spices, and exceptionally smooth. Greatness here.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2010 Bottled. Dark copper in color, with a nice, off-white head. It is slightly hazy, with some sediments. Surprisingly weak aroma with sugar, alcohol, dried fruits, spices and berries. Sugar, alcohol, berries, prunes, raisins, spices and chocolate notes in flavor. Full body and a bitter finish with a good deal of alcohol. It probably deserves more than a 4, but it will have to convince me on a later occasion to get a higher rating. I was a little bit disappointed with especially the aroma. Rating: 7-5-8-4-16-4.0. 060801

Bottle. A slightly unclear brown beauty, topped by a finger-thick, dense beige head. Dried fruits, some alcohol and cellar, berries, a spiced touch and chocolate in the aroma. The flavor has a little caramel, with lots of dried fruits, a little warming alcohol, hints of cellar, dark berries and plums. Some bitterness brings a kind of balance. Nicely carbonated, warming and full-bodied. The finish has a faint metallic touch, else its pretty much like the initial flavor. And it lasts. A really nice beer, tasteful, relaxing and smooth. Dangerously easy to drink as well. 100611

Bottle purchased at Le Bier Circus in Brugge. Pours a brownish-black, thick head, malty and slight fruity aroma, very, very smooth beer. Well worth having in addition to the 12.

Sampled at In de Vrede. Deep, deep dark colour. Long lasting head. Malty aromas, fruits, spice, dark berries. Carbonation is perfect, tingling. Mouthfeel is velvety, robust and the flavours are soo complex. This is beer to die for.
