bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2005
Beautiful amber brown colour, but with a quite small off-white head. Aroma of roses, alcohol, toffee and hops. The taste is a roasty malt combination of sweet and sour, very unusual, with a more hoppy finish.

Bottle. Nutty brown with a small head. Aromas are malty and sweet with pepper, berries and some smoky nutiness. Flavours are sweet and malty with yeast, chocolate and spices. Also has dates - quite fruity. Alcohol on the finish. A bit simplistic but decent.

Amber, lightbrown lasting head. Aroma from toffee and cream. Flavor brings chocolate, mushroom (!) and toffee. Spicy flavor with some alcohol, nutty, earthy and with a spicy finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Pours out a nice deep red with a small off white head. Smells of cherries, roses and sugar. Tastes very unusual. Some nice bitter sour notes. Some grapey elements are present, but otherwise, this one’s very hard to place. Definitely unique,

( Bottle at Le Poechenellekelder, Brussels) Amber with a nice offwhite head. Malty nutty aroma with some cream and toffee. Nutty milky flavor, spicy and with some alcohol. Maybe a little thin body.

TBone (13118) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2005

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Bottle. A really sweet strong ale. Smells of smoked malt, and bourbon. Head is small and light a deep red brew. Taste is a bit thick and overwhelming in sweetness. Not good in large quantities okay to sample

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2005
There’s a touch of the sweet and sour about this one. Plus a big alcohol burn. Majors on malt and caramel. Some dried fruit. I often struggle with strong malty beers and this was no exception. Not exactly coarse, but not particularly refined either. OK, but I couldn’t really get into it. Just too sweet for me. Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk
