      Overall Impression (3½)
      Deep golden, massive dense creamy head. Very smoky aroma! Some Belgian spiciness behind that. Big creamy body. Richly malty. Full frontal assault of Belgian spiciness. Intensely warming and quite dry. Malty, spicy, alcoholic finish. Very good beer!

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Deep red. Massive dense head. Lots of toasty malt aroma, spicy...and a hint of skunk. Light body. Lots of toasty malt flavor. Lots of vegetal...hops? Reasonably spicy, but that "green-grassy" flavor really detracts. 6° P.
