JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 14, 2004
( Bottled 33ml., at least 1 year old. Dranken in perfect conditions; my kitchen, a sunday night) A real Pope of beers! The poor gives a good 2 mm. head, that lasts throughout the session, beautyfull copper color. I got the rich canesugar, plum, dade nose, but alo...grass(?). The taste gives the real trappist of more dade, caramel and rasin, to the full portwine of a good strong ale from Belgium. Half of a teaspoon of settlement at the bottom of the glass; a true joy to live to taste this brew. Hail the monks.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Ruddy brownish, creamy, fast dissipating. Has strong green apple, liquorice and toffee notes. Complex, with sweet, sour, bitter and salty elements popping up. Warming, strong, pleasing to all senses. Outstanding.

Large tan/light brown head, good retention and lotsa sticky laceing. Clear, deep amber color. malty, fruity, cheesy nose, yeasty also. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Caramel, earthy flavors, dark fruit, malty, buttery flavors. A complex brew indeed. Medium dry finish.

GregClow (2958) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2004
Dark red-brown colour. Dried fruit and malt in the aroma. Body is a little lighter than expected from the appearance. Big malt presence in the flavour, with strong, sweet fruit notes. Finish is dry and moderately sour.

CapFlu (4723) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
(30cl bottle) Sampled at Pub Italia in Ottawa. Pours a thin, quick-dissipating almond head and a cloudy, brown body. Beautiful nose of malt, bubblegum, vanilla and bananas. Very enjoyable as a post-supper aperatif. Enjoy!

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Beer pours (in Augustign glass) a dark, cloudy brown with a small amount of off-white head that dissipates quickly to near nothing, but leaves a thin film. Aroma is initially of straw, grass, wheatish, and whiskeyish. Flavor is of brown sugar oatmeal cookie taste, with hops, and slightly dry. Upon warming up, Achel 8 Bruin has an aroma more of Corsendonk Brown, which is the reason for the bump up. Overall, a fine brew, but not as appealing as Corsendonk Brown. Sampled at 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 5, 2004
33 cl bottle. Opaque dark brown, largish diminishing head. Dark stewed apple/molasses nose, spicy-sweet with clove and orangepeel. Very thick-bodied, like a milkshake, yeasty and lightly alcoholic, moderately sweet and fairly acidic, lots of caramel malt goodness, some citrus and tart apples, compulsively drinkable. Works for me!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Pours dark brown, cloudy and unfiltered looking, with a light ring of foam, that fades into a soda like effervescence that dissipates quickly. Lots of candi sugar, with semi-sweet dark chocolate tones and brown sugar with a bit of apple butter in the finish. Very malty and yeasty and easy to drink.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Sweet spiced aroma. Body starts sweet and finishes slightly dry. An ok Belgian, but not a favorite.
