Bart (2938) - 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 (14337) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 (6621) - 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 (4738) - 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 (6195) - 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 (10041) - 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!

Bottle @ DHVL - thanks to the staff for the generous gift! The pour’s deep brown with a large, creamy white head. The nose is toasted grain, light soy sauce and chocolate donut. The taste is light steak sauce tang, some chocolate, twigs and vanilla. Light body, nice. Balanced, not too sweet. Overall, good.

Bottle @ De Heeren provided gratis as a nightcap for staying the night at their establishment. Dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Toasty caramel/chocolate (turtle), toasty grainy nose. Tangy, blackberry, dark fruity, plum, spicy yeasty, caramel, chocolate, fairly fruity flavor. Not bad.

CanIHave4Beers (3684) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle at 2 be in Brugge, of all places. I hadn’t felt great about leaving De Heeren van Liedekercke without trying this one, and imagine my surprise when I found this exclusive beer at a different bar.

Pours a deep mahogany with a huge tight off white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is fruity with some leafy hops, pears, and mild earthiness.

The flavor is far fruitier and sweeter than the aroma lets on. The beer has a nice hop bitterness that balances this. The bitterness and nuttiness grow more prevalent as the beer warms.
