( 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.

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 (7416) - 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

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 5, 2005
Bottle, 33cl. Nice brown/red colour (not too dark) with low carbonation. Sweet malty aromas but not too much sweet. I enjoyed this one a lot, even though the bottle could be fresher. Hides the alcohol very well. Looking forward to try it again.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) My version was only 7% ABV. Dark brown with a reddish hue, decent head. Very malty and full-bodied, with some roasted, sweetish notes - although the sugar never gets cloying. Reminds me of an Abbey Dubbel. 280597

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2005
(bottle) Clear dark red colour with a small creamy off white layer. Sweet malty aroma with fruity elements. Roasty malts flavour, medium sweet. A very easy to drink Triple, very tasty malts but also alcoholic sweetness in the finish

joergen (21333) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2005
Draught at ølbaren. Brown colour with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty flavour with notes of grain, alcohol and hops.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
(on bottle) Minimal aromas in this one. Dark amber and clear color. very rounded caramel-sweet flavour; low carbonation. Candy finish, this must be served very cold or else it becomes cloying...did for me.

A weird beer--dark and strong, but with a lot of hop and with a number of strange flavor undertones.
