TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2010
Bottled 330ml alc. 6.8% (Beer Planet, BB ?)
Dark nut brown color, small beige head. Aroma of raisins, dark malts, slight oxidation (balsamico). Medium-bodied. Caramelly with some malty and sherryish notes. Lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. I could guess that this is an aged bottle, and nice one.
Earlier Rating: 4/24/2005 Total Score: 3.7

Dark port ruby, creamy tanned head, lace. Fruity, woody, yeasty nose. Medium-bodied, sticky sweetish mouthfeel. Dry aftertaste, alcohol warms in the finish. Well-balanced, well-made brune.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle, bought @ EG.
Pours deep chestnut red with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Nice and fresh aroma. Lots of plums, raisins and good chocolate and mild roasted notes. A hint of liqourice. Highish carbonation, light mouthfeel, good dryness. Flavour has good herbal liqourice mixed in with chocolate, esters, plums and raisins. Long, lingering, light grainy maltiness and good bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 28, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Clear chestnut color, thin off white head. Aroma of caramel candy. Sweet start to finish. Slight hint of butterscotch in the background. Pleasant, sweet.

Bottle at Scotch Inn, Malmedy. Very dark brown, almost black. Thin off-white head, scant lacing. Aroma of caramel and cigarettes (in a smoky bar!). Taste was sweet, syrupy caramel and not much else. Boring.

eManu (445) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2010
Pours a dark brown color with a nice beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, brown sugars and spices. Flavors of strong roasted malts and liquorice, dark fruits and caramel, with spices. Good carbonation, little sweet and good bitter dry, with a creamy finish. Reminds me of some stouts. Very pleasant flavor and testure for a winter brew.

MiP (13529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2009
Bottle, 6.8%. Very fruity aroma, sweet and malt syrupy. Almost clear dark red red brown colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is sweetish, fruity, yeasty. Has some malt syrup flavour, but not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Tastes a bit like homebrew, but not bad.
Earlier Rating: 9/26/2007 Total Score: 3.9
Bottle, 6.3%. Malty aroma. The flavour is fruity and quite sweet, roasted, nutty. Finishes with lots of flavour, a little cream and sweet dark malts.

harrisoni (13283) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2009
33cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Deep ruby brown, thin dark beige head. Little bit musty on the malts. Decent enough, some decent malt fruit, bit of dry malt too. Not too interesting though and still a bit musty.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
At Chez Moeder Lambic, Bruxelles; 6.3% ABV
Dark color, with mahogany shades; small head. Light roasted malt aroma, yeasty. Medium body, the mouthfeel is quite smooth; there is light black malt flavor, overall not so interesting.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Sampled at brewery. Ruddy chestnut color, off-white head. Fairly toasty-malt nose, bits of caramel and toffee, and a touch of roast coffee. Real malt backbone there, not giving in to a fruity Belgian yeast. Flavor ducks excessive sweetness but stays malty, like chewing on the husk of Crystal. Gets a touch cidery with a little bready sourness, which is character most welcome. Good flavor, and very drinkable. Really a damned nice brown ale.
