VsXsV (1896) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle at DHVL. Dark brown liquid with medium to big light brown head. Aroma of biscuit, flowers, earthy hops, bread, light banana and light clove. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of flowers, biscuit and light belgian yeast esters. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Really nice, great maltiness together with some hoppiness.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
750mL bottle, courtesy of the great DHVL guys, pours a hazy dark copper amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of spices, Belgian yeast and some toasted malt. Flavour brings out some slightly sweet toffee, burnt dry toasted malt, and some various spices. Pretty well-rounded, with some nice spicy touches and dry body. Good stuff.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2013
33cl bottle at home, thanks to Nienke. Darker brown coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small off white head. Special herby and slightly alcoholic hinted aroma with some malty veggy hints. Full sprinkling palate. Finish is again rather veggy malty with a sweet bitter alcoholic balance. Ok

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle shared with Bruce, Rilester and Leighton at the DHVL lodgeings 22/03/13. Obscured chestnut brown witha thin white head. Nose carries dark fruits, toffee, light soap, touch of yeast, bread dough, light spice. Taste comprises dark fruits, a very light sour tang going down, brown sugars, background hoppage, toffee. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, some bitterness in a dryish finish. A very drinkable night cap and the alcohol doesn’t come crashing through in any shape or form for an 8% beer!

Cuso (3802) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle from Pallieter85, many thanks. Hazy dark brown color with small off-white head. Fruity aroma with earthy notes. Very strange mostly alcoholic taste with caramel, sweet malt, chocolate, some earthy notes and little bit harsh bitterness in finish. But somehow I liked it.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2013
33cl green bottle. It pours a deep ruby almost brown colour with a huge beige foam. Aroma is big on sweet notes with loads of candi sugar, toffee and molasses. Some caramel and vanilla and only slight hops. Taste is sweet and umbalanced again, with only a tad of bitterness in the end. Big sweet caramel and candi sugar notes. Some alcohol as well. Body is quite thick and overcarbonated. This one needs a vigorous pour and a swirl for sure. Overall, not bad by any means but overly sweet to me and a tad boozy.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Got a 75 cl. bottle for free from DHL as a goodbye gift. THX! Cool Service. Brownish, hazy with an off-white head. Ripe and overripe darkfruit in the nose, caramel, sweet with some booze comming through, sweet leaves, brown sugar in the nose. Bitter herbal in the taste, presumably the hops, leaves, burned sugar, caramel, lots of bitter leaves, lots of bitterness and some booze, very bitter leaves & herbs in the back. Medium, light oily body. Interesting & very bitter for a Belgian beer, enjoyed their blond housebeer more.

Scopey (5526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle in our room at DHVL. The only non-sour I drank in Belgium! It pours very dark ruby brown, with a massive beige head. The nose is pine, citrus fruit, candied peel, roasted malt and underlying spice. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, pine, tar, assertive bitterness, dark fruit/berry, ash and some spice, with a pretty dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and well balanced. Sort of like a Belgian Black IPA!
