Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Hazy brown, almost muddy appearance. Lots of aroma from the malts, extremely aromatic and pleasant. A bit on the dry side for a "Dubbel" making this easier to drink than some of itís brothers. Has been marketed extensively in recent years, but seems to have maintained all itís qualities. 020893

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Explosive cork that shot off the bottle after I removed the cage. Poured a massive faomy ahead atop the mahogany body. Aroma of rasins and cocoa with a hint of smoke and vanilla. Fruity, notes of plum and pear a very slight touch of smoke. Yeasty finish. Enjoyable.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Beautiful brown, translucent in appearance with a great creamy, fluffy head, leaving nice lacing tracks as we go along. Smells of golden raisins, pepper, anise and apple cinnamon. Flavor is most predominantly pepper, caramel and toffee. Sour red grape aftertaste. Great beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 I have had this beer a number of times over the years and have always been rather fond of it. I was surprised to see that I had not rated it yet so I grabbed another bottle. Sampled from a pretty 12 oz brown bottle this brew poured a chestnut color with a huge fluffy light brown head. The aroma is sweet malt and light berry. The flavor is strongly malty with light fruits, a hint of nut and a nice hop undertone. A sour fruity tang lingers on the finish.

UnsofistaCat (241) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2005
The sniff is amazing. Apples, moldy wood, smells like a picnic basket in heaven. Very interesting flavors. Obvious raisons, actually pretty hoppy. Swear it tastes like wine at times...not what I was expecting. Now for the negative: Way too thin and carbonated. I really wish I would of put this in the cellar for some serious aging...maybe that would of helped. Way to skinny for the fat bucks.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2005
Caramel brown with a white head. The aroma is fantastic and very complex. Some rasins and malt and even a little smoke in the aroma. The nose on this bottle is fantastic and the closest to a 10 Iíve drank yet. The first sip was chocolatey, yet bolder and stronger. The fruit flavor comes through in the end on the palate. Some sweet malt flavor as well. Strong on the palate with a little yeast flavor on the back side . Very flavorful brew. I canít wait to drink this one again.

scotty (1137) - SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2005
An import from Amsterdam from a pal whoís just arrived back. Mid brown with a good firm white head, slightly hazy,but thatís to be expected I suppose. VERY complex aroma, as the commercial description suggests, it is very rich, quite heady, but not overpowering, could "nose" this for hours..itís lovely. On the palate,again, itís a complex beast,big and fruity...a superb beer, shame Iíve only got the one bottle.
