Dark brown pour with large fluffy tan head. Aroma of plums and raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with a bit of caramel and raisin coming through. High carbonation with a dry finish. Not that great in the long run.

BiddleBrau (958) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Hazy brown with minimal tan head. Alcohol in the nose with some hints of sweet fruits. Malty flavor, toasty, plums and raisins, alcohol, again, present. A bit cloying in the finish. Definite Belgian characteristics but I wouldn’t classify as one of my favorites but still flavorful.

IPAsavedMYlife (345) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Loose brown head dissipated quickly. color is a medium brown. Smell is banana, plum, grape, champagne, good amount of rotten grapefruit smell in there. Mouthfeel is light, plenty of character depth though. Lots of carbonation flavor, alcohol comes through quite a bit as well. Earthy palate, honey, caramel malt flavor, not much hops to speak of. This is kind of how an American would make a Belgian beer, but with more hops. Aftertaste is the most inviting. No masterpiece, but I very enjoyable. This beer gets a 10 for intangibles. Nice "wild/lively" characteristic. Enjoyability 4/5.

Swaroga (1423) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a big gray head. Nose : floral, cheese yeast, dried fruits, caramel/toffee malts. Sip : medium body with a high carbonation. Sweet raisins going into little bitter that mixes roasted malts with a background hops. I was surprised by the yeast aromas but apart of that, it makes a decent strong belgian brown beer.

tfredvik (1182) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2011
Dark brown reddish body, with a slightly tanned, creamy, long-lived head. Very sweet malty aroma with lots of caramel. Also yeast, spices and light fruits, isn’t there an apple in there? Medium sweet taste with a light bitter finish. The mouthfeel isn’t that great: the point is, ladies and gentleman, that alcohol, for lack of a better word, is good. Alcohol is right, alcohol works. Alcohol clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. But in this beer the alcohol is too dominating, both flavour-vice and on the palate. The alcohol doesn’t really do anything for this beer, other than producing a vodka like feeling that shouldn’t be present in beers. At least not in my beers. In addition there is a faint metallic feel. Still, the taste, flavours and aroma are quite good, making this beer drinkable despite its shortcomings.
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
