This beer was lsited as eerwarrdw pater belgian strong dark ale. On tap and glad to have a chance to try it! Darker iced tea color. Scummy pond head. Sweeter aroma. This stuff is a little flat but it is quite interesting on the buds. Has a sour but not wild attitude and I like that. Enjoyable fun easy. Slight vinegar backbone. Yes, easy to like. Fun and an overall good beer experience. Rocks! You would never think this stuff was +9%! Be careful! As good as corsendonk pater, i think.

Pretty clear red-brown beer, beige very big aery head. Very unstable, falls quickly down to about 1/3rd, leaving a nice lacing. Aroma: cough syrup upon opening and pouring, dark berries, cheese, malty, alcohol, fruity, bit of citric hops, on warming up some forest fruits. MF: bit too much carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity and sour, red currants, unripe raspberries, sour apple, little bit of roasted malts, dark caramel. Aftertaste: some hop bitterness with more sour berries. Interesting yet not super.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle: Poured a dark chocolate brown with a off white head. Aroma is dark fruit with a edge that I can’t pick up. Taste is a sweet maltiness, the finish is sticky and wet.

There are many advantages to strong beer. For instance, I left this in my car overnight accidentally in the worst blizzard in ten years and it did not freeze. Try that w/ a Miller Lite! This is sort of a thick, barelywine-like Belgian style ale. It is a nice enough reddish brown color w/ a small head. It greets the nose w/ sticky malts and resinous, spicy hops. Flavor is a bit sweet w/ some sort of piney hops. It’s slightly over-carbonated so the texture comes off as a bit thin. An odd metallic note comes out in the finish. This is not one of Belgium’s finer offerings.

drpimento (2173) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Pretty good obscure brew. Poured with a huge foamy frothy, fine, light tan head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is a cloudy mahoganey. Aroma is lots of dark ripe fruits: raisins, figs, dates, prunes, malt, yeast, Flavors very similar. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor with a little more bitterness coming out. Good beer.

mile (2876) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma with roasted malt and some coffee, faint sourness. Body is medium, malty with some sweetness, roasted malt and some coffee with notes of vanilla. Finish is average, malty and dryish, some sourness with vanilla and coffee. Interesting and quite pleasant combination of vanilla and light sourness.

JohnnyMummbles (151) - Pitman, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2010
poured from a 330 cl bottle a very murky mahogany color with quite a bit of sediment floating around the glass. Has a very small tan head that dissapears quickly.Aroma of fruits, malt, cocoa, and coffee. Taste is somewhat complex of apple, malt, other fruits and coffee. A wonderful taste is left lingering on the palate that rises right up the nose. Good carbonation.Despite the rating I feel this is a very good beer. A little bit of sourness detected but offsets the sweetness. A very good Belgium beer that i would recomend.

Spicy aroma. Hints of bready malts. malt aroma I always associate with Belgian beers. Pours mahogany brown with large fluffy head. Spicy flavor hits you right away. Then the aftertaste becomes a malty sweet affair that is very nice. A good beer that does not hide what it is, but is lacking some complexity that would make it even better.

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle from the proefzolder. Pours almost black, trying to watch some fotons get through i’d think it has a marroon shine. Head is foamy, quickly collapsing and brownish, but leaves a silky topping. Nose hasn’t a lot going on, but I get some vinous earthy notes. First sip hits your mouth like a glass of vinegar when expecting sprite. Very vinous, as in unexpected, some lactic acid, some caskwood tannines, some fondant chocolate taking a peek. And a roasted maltiness throughout the swallow. Flavor is predominantly sour, but with bitterness of the roasted malts and some chocolate sweetness. This could partake in an oud bruin competition. Palate I find a bit oversaturated but it has at least a minimum of silkyness. An interesting and alternative brew...
