Skinnyviking (6791) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. High and lasting creamy off-white head. Clear dark brown body. Caramel cocoa aroma with notes of raspberry. Flavor dominated by cocoa and vanilla. Nice and sweet without being too much of a good thing.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 9, 2007
On tap at brewery. Pours dark copper color. Aroma of brown sugar. Very sweet tasting beer with some caramel malts in the background. Enjoyable, but simple

oh6gdx (20252) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007
Bottled. Pours a very murky dark brown almost opaque colour and has a huge creamy beige head. Aroma is alcohol, acidic fruits and some toffee. Flavour is toffee, malts and alcohol. Slight metallicness in the finish. Quite thin and watery palate. The alcohol in aroma and flavour pretty much ruins it.

SilkTork (5179) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Severe and unpleasant carbonation. Needs conditioning to become drinkable. And after that it reveals that itís a rather metallic and unpleasant beer. Crude unfermented sugar sweetness, some rough alcohol, and a foul bitterness in the finish. About as bad as a beer can get and still remain just about drinkable. There seems to be little to commend this to anyone. It has no character, it is crude, it is rough, it is overcarbonated, it is badly balanced, the beer moves from sugar sweetness to a rough, unfragrant hop pellet bitterness in an abrupt manner. This is foul, foul, foul. At least global pale lagers are drinkable.

goozen (2886) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2006
Another one from the Halve Maan, A nice brown dubbel beer with caramel, bitter taste and some corbonation onthe tongue.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught at The Beer Weekend, Brussels. Reddish brown with an off white head that left a nice lacing, about the only thing nice about it. Smell of banana and a taste like banana nut bread. Watery and thin, a disappointment from my once favorite brewery. Should have held on to Straffe Hendrik.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle. Raisin in the aroma. Roasted malt and caramel in the dryish flavor. Malty, medium bodied. Not bad.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2006
Chesnut-brown beer with beige foam. Nutty aroma with some sweetness and breaddyness. Tasteful beer with soft taste and some hints of caramelised cakes. fine bitterness in the finale.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2006
Draft at brewery. Clear redish-brown body, medium off-white head with great lacing. Aroma of fudge caramel. Very malty, caramel, sugary, not very pleasant sweet/bitter finish. Tastes like a bad Straffe Hendrik Brune. More boring than bad. Looks nice like the touristy part of Brugge where it is brewed. But really it is as boring as the rest of Brugge.
