leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are lots of cola with dark syrup. Quite floral. Flavours are sweet toffee and cola with sugar and syrup. Fruity with some tartness. Some roast malts with peat earthiness. Overall very sweet but good.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with minimal head.Flavours of sour cheery with a little caramel. Flavours of both sweet and sour cherry. Some caramel also. Some lactic acid near the end. Finish is a little mettalic and a little mineral. Nice beer.

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle at Belgian Beer Cafe in Sydney. Gorgeous subtle lambic sourness amid cherry chocolate trappiste style flavourings. Really really great for first few sips but as the precious seconds slip away so does the flavour. Carbonation disappears quickly and texture and flavour becomes a bit more like cherry cordial. Drink it fast!

bierkoning (9831) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown color. Caramel and cherry in the aroma. Slightly soured flavor, malty with toffee, cherry sweets and dust. Sweet and sour coincide well. Pleasant Flemish brown, I guess it was intended that way.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle thanks to the bosses, had in the rake. Alround rating: Tart fruityness, some acidic fruit, plums in lemon juice. Decent, but im guessing infected.

marcus (6018) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 22, 2009
On tap at Kulminator. This dark brown ale poured with a fluffy beige head that dissipated quickly and a toffee aroma. The flavor is rather sweet with some anise and chocolate. It’s a bit too thin.

TaxiDriver (1440) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle. The aroma is nice malty, light sweet, some sugar. The head is small, white and fizzy-foamy with a short duration. The body is nearly black. The taste is very malty and reminds me a little bit of chocolate. The texture is silky with a soft carbonation and a medium strong body. A very nice beer.
