BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Sampled at Logan’s ratebeer GABF gathering: Deep brown hue with small tan head. The aroma is sweet malts (caramel and mocha), spicy and grassy hops, lot of grainy and herbal esters, and a hint of lactic sourness. The taste is a bit too sweet and underdeveloped. Lots of chocolate and toffee with solif fleshy fruits and a undertone of clove and pepper. The feel is oily and sticky yet only medium-bodied. Good and nice to have tried. Would not mind another chance at a re-rate.

Dark brown colored, fine tan head. Hard roasted and chocolaty aroma, dark and heavy with a tone of alcohol and grassy notes. Malt and chocolate in the sweet and full flavor. Heavy and warming with an alcoholic end. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Lovely!

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Sweet, rose water, chocolate, cakelike aroma. Opaque black body with decent off white head that recedes to cover. Very sweet, floral, cakelike flavour with strong roasty bitterness emerging towards the long dry finish. Sweet floral tones last in the aftertaste. Medium-full body with soft, lively effervescence. Bottle sampled at RBESG 2005.

omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled at RBESG. Near black. Rose aroma. Sweet and roasty, salty and intense with notes of milk chocolate. Very soft mouthfeel. Like a flower garden a summer morning.... Complea and unusual, incredibly refined compared to most other Belgian stouts.
