Tasted on 8/14/04 from 750ml bottle.

Appearance: Slightly hazy copper/brown with an off white head that gradually fades to quite a bit of sticky lacing.

Smell: Restrained aromas of toffeish malt, plum, spice and yeast.

Taste: Big malt up front, with flavors of orange peel, plum, and caramel. The finish is dry and slightly peppery.

Mouthfeel: Big full body, with creamy carbonation.

Drinkability: Great dinnertime beer, very much a damn solid brew.

Very cloudy and dark copper in color. Tan head, which is about four fingers thick.

Very fruity smell, dark bready malts over ripe dark fruit. Slight copper metallic aroma too.

Tastes of over ripe strawberries and sweet dark breads.

MF is slightly coarse from carbonation. A little syrupy, but still wetting to the palate and zero alcohol burn.

Overall, mildly complex and a bit refreshing.

Poured from the bottle a cloudy mahogany color with red highlights and a thin cap of beige head resting on top.

Aroma of sweet malts, raisins, Belgian yeast, and tobacco leaf.

Tastes of sweet malts, plums, raisins, yeast, and Belgian candied sugar and tobacco leaf in the finish. The 8% alcohol is well hidden.

Medium bodied, sticky, and moderately carbonated.

Definitely an enjoyable Belgian strong dark ale and a must try.

Pours a dark, burgundy/brown with a fine, tan head. The thin head, quickly gives way to silky lacings.

Sweet malt, raisin, clove and phenols make for a pleasant aroma.

Sweet malt and candied sugar up front. Raisin, red grape, dates, and a slight, earthy phenol flavor create a complex taste. There are also some hints of clove and peppery alcohol. Overall, the alcohol is very well masked.

Lightly syrupy, medium bodied and well carbonated, this has a pleasing mouthfeel. A highly drinkable Belgian dark ale.
