OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2005
11.2oz bottle..... poured into a glass. Nice spice/wood smell. Very murky light brown beer. Lots of floaties even after a very slow pour. Small lace head. Yeast spice with mellow fruit abroad. Alc is almost not there, very well hidden. The warm after taste reassures the 8% abv is there. Great brew other than the floaties..... I didnt know it was retired. Had I known that I would have picked up the rest of the 4 pack.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Born as "Cuvée Antwerpen" when this city was the cultural capital of the EU in 1993. Hazy, dark amber - not much head. Very soft mouthfeel, some caramel and spices. And also some typical De Koninck fruitiness. A bit like what you would expect if you took the standard De Konick and added another 3% alcohol. Nice one. 260695

aroma and flavor is some bananas and apples, this was enjoyable but got a bit "skunky" as it warmed.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a hazy deep amber with a 1/4 inch off-whit ehead. Some persistent lacing. Aroma is very fruity with hints of barnyard funk. Lightly bitter. Tastes fruity. Hints of sour apple. A bit funky. Bitter. A crisp biting bitterness. Blends nicely with the funk and the fruity. Crisp in the mouth and lightly sticky. A bit of a sweet aftertaste. Pretty tasty. A good Belgian ale.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Bottle. Best by 09/17/04. We’ll see.... Pours a hazed amber with a small off-white head. Nose is sweet with caramel, hints of candy sugar, light yeast, flowery hops and light spices. Taste is light alcohol, candy sugar, caramel, candied fruits, yeast and light spicy hops. Body has definitely thinned a bit. Not sure if it was always as thin as it is now, but it’s thinner than a Belgian Strong should be. Light alcohol warmth in spots as well. Finishes much the same as the taste - spciy hops, candied fruits, light yeast, caramel and candy sugar. Maybe some light woody notes as well. Not bad!

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2005
a very sweet aroma coming off a cloudy brown body with chunks of sediment floating around. a caramel malt flavor with hints of boubon flavor, making me wonder if this spend time in a cask at any point.smooth easy finish with a slight hop finish. too bad its retired.
