Tap at brewery in easton with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. 12oz tulip pour. Really nice light plum color reminiscent of this style, small off white head. Dark fruit nose. Fruity plum taste with Belgian funk, very smooth. This is what this style is supposed to taste like. Excellent. jsporrer (1028) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a dirty brown tea color with a thin tan ring. Crisp tart aroma with notes of caramel, toffee, and vanilla. Smooth and flavorful with a full mouth feel and a nice warm finish. Masks the alcohol well. Leave a nice aftertaste. nearbeer (5419) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2016
12 oz. bottled 09/30/2015. Clear, deep copper with some spots of foam. Aroma is banana, walnut, bread, toffee and a touch of booze. Tastes of toffee, bread, lightly tart apple, clove, plum, cherry and wood. Medium-plus body is big and malty per the style, but has a nice drying finish that makes it pretty drinkable. Smooth low-medium carbonation is nice. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2016
Pours a medium dark reddish amber color. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, and some spice. Flavors are sour cherries, and some spice. Alcohol really dominates. Malin_aiisa (1144) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016

Pour is a muddy river water with a small white head. Aroma is a big dark fruit with a lot of raison and figs with some bron sugar and alcohol. Flavor is at first a huge sweetness. There is a ton of dark candi sugar here. Next I get a sugar covered plum with a healthy warming alcohol. This is way sweet but I do like the dark fruit that this beer has. Not a bad 12 oz bottle quad. Probably just needs more time to sit and let the sweetness subside. finol (3389) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle at NYC Craft beer festival.
Pours reddish amber.
Taste and aroma of dried fruits, round mouthfeel. migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2016
A very pleasant quad, if a little too thin bodied. Bottle into a snifter, served a bit too cold out of the refrigerator, but I have the time to warm it up. Reddish brown color that is somewhat transparent, with a thin, quickly disappearing head. Aroma of alcohol and yeast, dark fruit and sugar and the flavor follows the aroma pretty well. Dark fruits and sweetness predominate with a pronounced malty roundness and alcohol heat. Just at a guess, and due to the high ABV, I would say that this brew has an overload of sugar overpowering the malts, and it has a negligible hop presence, standard for the style. I’m certainly enjoying the one I bought, but would probably find two a bit cloying. Evolutionary (502) - Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle from andersons east side. Nose is sweet but has a bite. Smooth upfront. Has quite a bite to it especially at first. Dark malts shine through. Aggressive but kills the taste buds early on. A man's beer and heavy. Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 8, 2016
