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.

pours a attrative brown with white head. the flavor and nose are quite complex with hints of sweetness and fruit such as raisin. a nice malty character to it. even a little wine flavor to it. a really good beer.

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 (1147) - 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.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2005
mild malt and yeast aroma, sweet but not fruity. a deep brown color with a creamy tan head. very full flavor, with hints of chocolate and a bit of red wine taste, along with some yeast and sweet malts. a great mouthfeel, a very full body, and and incredibly smooth taste.

bottle. mmmm...what a beer.pours a nice effervescent copper-brown with a huge frothy head that lingered and laced all the way down the glass. Perfect marriage of yeasty, fruity, malty and sour flavor. wonderful yeast flavor...very fruity and bready. great, great beer.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2005
Pours sparkling clear dark copper brown with a huge lasting fluffy beige head which laces the glass nicely. Pleasant light fruity aroma. Flavor is light and crisp for the style. Hints of apple cider. Very enjoyable and refreshing. Slightly tart, dry finish. Not a typical dubbel, this is different. Very nice.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
750ml bottle. Very dark copper with a lasting head. Initial aroma is wine-like, with notes of raisins and earth. Flavour is light for the style. Not very malty or yeasty. It has notes of raisins but the chocolate is well hidden. Palate is foamy and soft without the baking soda effect.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 25, 2005
Tastde 22/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. The huge off white head from this beautiful dark ruby red ale collapses into a thin lacey cover. Punchy caramel aroma, firstly reminiscent of cola, slowly turn to spicey plums and stewed apples. The flavour is a real disappointment - dry and medicinal - and is delivered in a light and spritxt mouthfeel. Some woody tannin, winey fruit and sourness comes through later but initial flavour dominates. Palate is spicey and slightly furry. This turned from a favourite into an also ran once it hit my lips.
