R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2013
When pouring, instantly you notice the dark color, but hold it against a lightbulb and you will find it’s true ruby-red color. It smells a bit vanilla, caramel like, but it has a flat taste and also a bit bitter. The aftertaste is slightly sweet. Gelijk met het inschenken zie je de donkere kleur, maar in het licht is deze robijnrood Het heeft een zoet vanille caramelachtig aroma, maar de smaak is iets platter en bitter. De nasmaak is wel in de verte iets zoetig.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2012
The aroma is malty, very sweet, hot spiced wine and cherries. The small beige head is fizzy and disappears fast, the body is dark red. A strong malty taste, light bitter and very soft metallic in the finish. The body is medium strong, very creamy with a lively carbonation.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
#467 Sehr trübes, dunkelbraunes Bier. Ganz leicht hefiges, malziges Aroma. Im Antrunk sehr malzig, wird leicht hefig um dann nachbitternd auszuklingen. Für 9,5% Alk. sehr leicht. Insgesamt ein Brune, dass gut im Abgang ist, aber im Antrunk deutliche Schwächen aufweist. Test vom 20.4.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,10,12,12,10 - 10,15

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2012
33cl, BB 18/06/2014. Cuivrée, col épais crémeux beige. Arôme fruité noirs, note sucre, caramel et léger biscuité. Palais conserve une belle présence maltée, sucre candi avec en retrait une fine pointe houblonnée en amertume. Levure typique belge laissant une note de renfermé. Fruits noirs, raisin, dates. Le tout termine sucre laissant un collant aux lèvres, sec voire poussiéreux, note biscuit malt.

brokensail (10738) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Amber pour with a large khaki head. Heavy toast and bread malt aromas, some brown sugar, and a bit of toffee. Definitely some alcohol, a bit of dark fruit, and some spice notes. A ton of banana on the nose. The flavor is nice, but far too alcohol heavy. Lots of banana and applesauce, brown sugar, bread, and toast. There’s a bit of yeast and some clove spiciness, too. Would be better if not for all the booze.

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2012
33 cl. swing-top bottle shared @ home with t0rin0 and womencantsail. Dark brown amber with a big tanned head. Nose is quite interesting, herbal, fruity, caramel, burned sugar, dark fruits and indeed applesauce as mentioned. Taste is intriguing bitter copper with some lightly fermenting dark applesauce, bitter herbal, spice, caramel, dark sugar, light booze in the back. Big higher carb. Interesting, different, good. Maybe bit too much too easily drink but an interesting Belgian.
