goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Pours a deep mahogany, with a large tan head that mostly diminishes, leaving good amounts of lacing. Aroma is dark fruits (mostly raisin), backed with some bready maltiness. Flavor is sweet, somewhat fruity (raisin), and some doughie malts. Medium body.

radiomgb (2438) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2003
Deep ruby-brown in colour. Aroma of fruit, caramel, cookies, with some musty yeast. Flavour of fruit(plums, cherries), with some toffee and sweetness. Finishes with a medium bitterness, slight sweetness with some alcohol warmth.

WabashMan (1016) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2003
A nice reddish brown color with a good off white head starts this brew. Aroma is very dry, with strong yeast notes, as well. Dry flavor as well, with some hints of fruit. A good lingering finish, but the flavor isn't quite full enough, in my opinion. Good, nevertheless!

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Served at room temperature from bottle. Not as spicy or sugary as a Grimburgen. Similar to a Chimay. Lots of good fruit flavors hidden in the complex body.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 28, 2003
I do not like to rate based upon only one sample, but I think that this is perhaps one of the finest Belgians available. Huge, complex berry fruit in the nose and tons more as you sip. Incredibly this has also an almmost Rochefort-like restraint. Tremendous.

igneous1 (1507) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2003
brown with deep red tones, nice thin head, lasting with lots of very fine sediment. unripe pear is the first aroma that strikes my nose. not sure it can be defined exactly, but i smell some sort of chocolate/banana mixture. flavor is lots of apple and pear, just a little alcohol and pretty sweet.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2003
Strong butterscotch aroma. Hazy, brown color, light brown head, very good lace. Soft, light sweet, light bitter, full, butterscotch, banana and a hint of vanilla. The finish lasts forever and is bittersweet.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Was very effervescent, aroma was of yeast and caramel. Started sweet and finished slightly dry. Some plum, molasses, burnt clove.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2003
Bottled. Murky brown in color. Small bubbles in the diminishing head. Spicy aroma with notes of banana. Smokey flavor initially, then with notes of licorice and tit-bits. Slight alcohol feel.
