yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle. From trade with jbrus. A slightly hazy amber to ruby beer with a decent beige head. Weak nose of caramel, sugars and some fruits. Sugary-sweet delicious flavor with caramel, some alcohol notes and a cute little bitterness. Slightly warming in the mouth, with a good carbonation. A nice one, even though the aroma was boring and unispiring. (081003)

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2007
Bottled (BB 10/2007)
Dark ruby brown color, small brown head. Very fruity nose, loads of prunes, dates and brown sugar. Crisp carbonation. Prunes, toffee, some hops and even some licorice in the flavor. Some alcohol picks up in the finish. Nice sweetish dubbel. 10% version of this would be interesting - Rochefort influence is evident.

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 Bottle, bought at the brewery. I’ve used Rochefort yeast for this one, brewer Menno Olivier says proudly. Dark brown color. Apple, chocolate, cinnamon and yeast in the aroma. Indeed, there is some Rochefort character, but I wouldn’t have guessed it without knowing. Chocolate, apple and plums in the flavor. Malty, medium bodied, not too sweet. Blackcurrant, somewhat yeasty. Some distant hop character. Velvety. Likeable beer.

JorisPPattyn (7930) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2007
Fully hazy brown beer, with vanishing head. Wood, dark leaves, earthy notes in the nose, and a slight sourish tinge in the end. Wry, eikengal , wood again - as wood that was starting to rot and dried up again. Just a bit roasted. Very dry MF, dry-out effect. Strange, very dry beer; despite the strange eptithets, IMO totally free of infection, which is good for a small Dutch brewery.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at LCRBM3. Murky brown with a decent off white head. Earthy and barrel type aroma with some fruity notes. Flavour is roasted malt. Typical for this brewer. Slight soapy notes but still tasty. Chocolate and alcoholic finish. Little too much carb for me but not bad.

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2007
Hazy brown color, medium head. Aroma of some roasted malt, chocolat, sweetness. Probably the recipe or the brewing has evolved in time, because it was very nice balanced, no strange ingredients were overwhelming taste and aroma. I’m becoming a fan of this brewery!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2008
On Tap at Arendsnest with Bierkoning. This one was pretty good overall- pours a nice ruby amber and lasting head. Aroma is toasty, dark fruits, some raisin and other fruity estersbut also some light rubbery notes. More rubber and fusels in the flavor - estery raisin, fig, and dried fig paste/jam with caramel sweetness. Finish is pretty smooth. Wierd but pretty good.
