Bottle - Deep amber with big head that disappeared quick. Slight sour cherries in the aroma, hint of banana. Spicy notes and banana in flavor, ok beer.

adster (508) - HUNGARY - MAY 29, 2015
Mély, barnásvörös tónusú színben tetszeleg az Affligem főzde dubbele, visszafogott, hamar vékony lepellé zsugorodó habfonalat képezve, mely alól a jó öreg mazsolás, tejszínes aszalt szilvás, finoman alkoholos aromák röppennek fel nyomban. A megszokott stílusban, nem túl erőszakosan, mérsékelt intenzitással, ám annál kifinomultabb módon terülnek el az apátsági illatrétegek. Masszív testéhez egyenes út vezet illatának világától, vaskos kötegekbe fogott ízjegyek ontják magukból a borszerűen érett, mégis pezsdítően friss zamatokat. Egy csipetnyi karamell, kevés élesztő és egy adag gyümölcsaszalvány folyékony keverékére bőkezűen megszórt télies fűszerek rafinériája kerül, s bár a módszer unalomig ismert, az eredmény magáért beszél.

huineman (348) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 29, 2015
Pours deep ruby with heavy tan head. Aroma is high: fig leaf, butterscotch, caramel, chocolate. Powerful yet soft. Sweetish, fizzy, pleasantly metallic. Slightly bitter long ending. Nice.

chinchill (2771) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2015
300 ml bottle purchased in Greece and enjoyed in Delphi. Poured with a huge foamy head over a small brown body. Several pours needed to empty the bottle. Alcohol is not as well hidden as expected but the alcohol esters do blend nicely with the other flavors. Moderate complexity, including dark dried fruits, soft ripe fruits and pepper.

overtheline (40) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2015
330 ml bottle pours a hazy reddish brown, light beige cap. Nice nose of sweet malt and very sweet, ripe fruits, bit of banana. Tastes great, malt and ripe fruits again which give way to a really interesting sour, warm and slightly salty finish. Good creamy mouth feel with enough carbonation to carry everything through. Very good.

suurjuust (1634) - ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
Reddish amber, medium white head with spotty lacing. Nose is dried fruity, malty, spicy, metallic notes, probably from the yeast. Flavor is toasty malt, dried fruit, yeasty notes, coriander. Finishes with malty caramel sweetness. Pretty decent.

jamesie1857 (1578) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
330ml bottle from Belgium in a Box - Brown coloured body, slightly opaque with a long-lasting cream-colored head. Wonderful aroma - fruity and nutmeg with a hint of butter. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Really nice.

flying_pig (1098) - SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2015
330ml Bottle in Rembrandt Bar, Amsterdam (€4.00):
This one was a surprisingly good for a beer that was so easy to find in the Netherlands, a really nice Abbey style beer that was very well balanced with plenty of sweetness coming through from the offset but thankfully never really overpowered. The beer was an easy one to drink and is one that I wouldn’t mind picking up again in future.

rami_pl (352) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
butelka, warka do 29-07-16. Bardzo wysoka, lekko kremowa piana, opadajaca dosc powoli w mydlany nieco sposob. Samo piwo lekko metnawet, rubinowo-brazowe. Aromat glownie ciemnych owocow, karmelu, zboza, alkoholu. W smaku glownie owocowosc, kwaskowata, slodowe posmaki, lekka goryczka. w ustach pozostaje tez posmak przyprawowosci lekki, gozdzikowej chyba lownie. Kwaskowatosc odswiezajaca i rozniaca go od wielu innych dubli, pewnie dla wiele osob bedzie zaleta, ale nie trafia to w moj gust. Mimo to bardzo przyzwoite piwo
