beerbill (3567) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 19, 2010
341 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a moderate-large tan head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. There are a few light colored floaties collected near the bottom of the glass. Pleasant aroma of malt with some light sour notes in the nose. Just a hint of lemon present as well. There is no sign of the the sourness or lemon in the flavor, which is straightforward malt and caramel with some caramel slickness. Hardly any bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - APR 9, 2010
Bottle. Toasted almond, browned butter, a touch of sugar, maybe even peat, with some radish notes. Quite vegetal in flavor, mild white sugar, pale malt, kind of cooked. Very disappointing.

imdownthepub (11386) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle Conditioned, 330ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Chestnut with big white head. A little more subtle than many Dubbels, there is a smoothly sweet darker roast malt with a pleasant fruitiness and just a hint of spiciness, some light hops and just a vague presence of alcohol. Some caramelisation of the sugars giving a toffee note. Likeable.
