Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2004
Bottle at Beer Circus, Croydon. Odd sugary aroma (very much like those pick and mix banana sweets - the foam ones). Odd sweetish taste, malt, slight spice.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 9, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 38. This bottled brew from the ’t Brugs Beertje pub in Brugge poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized long lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a uncarbonated transparent dark brown colored body. It had a mild vinous aroma and a strong vinous malty palate that smoothened in the finish. Very good flavor. Goes down very easily.

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Bottled. Dark nut brown, hazy. Almond aroma. Sweet and soft, somewhat orangey. Fairly malty with some caramel. Warming, yet not alcoholic. Pleasant and flavourful. A good one.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Geuze-aroma. Sourish and sharp. Sour start and middle, more woody dryness in finish. Notes of oak. Like a Vlamish Oud Bruin, some sweet malty finish.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2004
With honey
Dark amber color; magnificent giant, thick head. Malt and spices aroma; lightly fruity (yellow berries). Good malty body; caramel; a delicate touch of roasted malt, dry, reminding a Scottish Ale; candi sugar; final with some nuts. Thanks Jacob (Lövenlund) for this bottle.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2003
Sweet n' sour flavour, acidic, sourness, is nice, but out of place. Spicy (cinamon), caramelly, toffee, some citrus in the finish. Good amount of yeast floating around aswell.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Deep ruby red, excellent rocky thick longlasting off white head and good condition. Muted aromas of fruity malt, oak and spices but slightly oxidised. Very soft in the mouth with a tangy fruit note and the vaguest suggestion of metallic tannin and woodiness like a flemish red. Some roasted barley noticable in the finish but nothing much else to redeem it. Not bad by any means, but nothing stunning either.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Intensely cloudy with an off-white frothy head. Much too much yeast. When pouring the beers gushes out of the bottle. Yeasty aroma, herbal with apricot and apple. Full bodied, herbal and yeasty flavor. Buttery with licorice, some sourness, blackcurrant, cherry and chocolate. Fairly complex strong beer, but has to be improved to make a real impression. Bottle, sold as Santabee. Dark brown color. Citrus and a hint of mint in the aroma. Citrus flavor with a hint of chocolate and mint. Not too spicy, likeable beer (7 3 7 3 13 = 3.3)

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2003
Dark-brown ale. Nose of liquorice and sweets.In taste liquorice again, and a certain amount of lactic acid that doesn’t seem voluntary - sits not quite right on the balance. Very much carbonation. No new aftertaste, sweetness becomes a bit cloying. Not exactly their best try.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2002
First rating: 11/29/2002. Dark cloudy amber coloured beer with a small off white head. Sweet, malty, spicy aroma with hints of manure or a withered flower according to my wife. A spicy and hoppy taste. Spicy, slightly bitter finish
