raymow (791) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2005
Dark, cloudy and thick - the particles just floated around inside the glass instead of settling to the bottom. Otherwise, a pretty standard example of a Belgian Strong Ale. Fruity flavor and aroma that gets spicier as you get further into it.

Choos (590) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2005
Aroma: malt, alcohol and christmas cake! Appearance: Red to brown cloudy with yeast particles and a great tan head with good lacing. Flavour: sweet prunes/plums and malt with noticeable alcohol and just a hint of roastiness. Palate: medium mouthfeel with all the flavours lingering.

Brown/red(ish) colour.Thick rounded beige head. Fruity nose. Flavour from fig and juniper. A wonderful never ending bitter palate.

Lunkie (1392) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2005
Strong malt spiritus fruit aroma. Light brown colour with thick head and lacing. Suspended yeast bits. Smooth malt hop flavour. With a flavour that goes all the way to the back of your throat. Smooth palate. Has the Special K approval!

cathcacr (634) - Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Falls well into the mainstream of Belgian strong ales Iíve tried, solid 8/10 material. Very highly comparable, in fact, to the St. Bernieís Prior 8 that I just had earlier today. Just a bit less pronounced on the aroma, but otherwise very hard to tell apart.

3.6
   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2005
Brown, maybe red/brown with a short lived, offwhite head. Intense aroma of cherries, earth and port. Flavour was disappointing, mostly earth, but I suspect the bottle could be slightly skunked (not my fault, I bought it today)

giarcsr (103) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Nice brownish color that is just right. Aroma is light and malty, yet sweet to the nose. Flavor is slightly malty and slightly wine like. It isnít too bad of a combination. I like this beer, itís pretty easy to drink.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2005
Warm chesnut color, a little cloudy, and with a nice creamy beige froth. Refreshing nose for a brown beer with accents of dry raisins, and Colheita Portwineit. It has also hints of nuts, and fresh ripe Black berries nicely utherbuild with herbs and spices. The taste is round light sweet and has faint fruity accents. In the afthertaste there is and littlr yeasty accent with a fine well integrated bitter touch.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2005
Off-white head on a brown body. The taste was sweeter than I expected, but very pleasant, with tons of fruity, spicy and candy hints. Iíll have it agin any time. Great achievement by the monks !

flemdawg (529) - Naples, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2005
I am pretty sure this is the right beer, it looks like the body is brown with tons of sediment and a fluffy tan head. Sweet aroma with hints of dark dried fruits, and some spieces. Also some hints of alcohol as it gets warm Very pleasant indeed. Slight sweet candy taste, but then some rasins, and plums with carmel. First beer of my 24th year and it tasted goood.
