Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2003
This was an outstanding beer. Hints of dried fruits and chocolate...and I enjoyed this beer with a nice Ashton cigar.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 7, 2003
A little too carbonated. Good spicy, yeasty characteristics. Lacking anything special, but still a decent belgian.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Dark, brown color. Rocky, off-white head. No visible carbonation. Yeasty Belgian ale aroma, the one I've come to love. Sweet spicy flavor.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2003
Pours a dark, reddish brown color with a big, off-white head that lingers for a while before dissipating completely. The aroma is spicey, yeasty, and a little musty. Full body with medium carbonation, the flavor is nice and fruity with hints of spices, yeasts, and chocolates. This one is very smooth and hides the alcohol very well.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Light malty, cookie nose. Big effevescent body, deep orange amber hue, big frothy tan head. Moderate sweetness, light raisons, allspice, cloves. Medium bodied, velvety smooth. Very nice with warmth. Spicey, frity and terribly drinkable.

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Smelled of cream and bananas, very pleasing. Decent frothy head over a medium brown liquid. Lacking some of the malty textures I'd expect from an Affligem product. Tastes too young, maybe a few more years in the bottle will do it some good. I opened it up and thought "Nah, too young." I tried it the next day, still too young. Tried it the next day (the same bottle) and it had airated enough to gain some spicy complexity. Kind of a time committment but it ended up being worth it.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2003
Brown color with a tan head. A strong smell of Brets and yeast. The flavor is full of Brets and some metallic aftertaste.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2003
A dark murky brown color with minimal light tan head. Smells yeasty with a bit of fruit, like grape jelly on toast. Very carbonated. A tarty bitter malt feel to it, more maltiness is present. Goes down nicely, smooth like a criminal.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2003
Beautifl nose of malt and butter. A bit musty, cobweb yeasts, oak with touches of dark fruit. Small fine oily head was persistant and left pleanty of thin laceing down the glass.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2003
This beer poured a dark amber color and formed a light tan bubbly head that left some circular lace. A good amount of carbonation is present. The aroma is of malt, cinammon, chocolate and some other spices. A flavor of malt, chocolate and spice. A slightly tart finish due to the carbonation.
