Skinnyviking (7317) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle. Very high and long lasting lasting off-white head. Clear very dark brown body. Missed a lot of beer when I poured it. Spicy roasted malt aroma whith cocoa and caramel. Heavily caronated sour berries spicy cocoa roasted malt flavor with a long bitter aftertaste. Odd.

Vignale (2243) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2010
Drucken på Bishop Gustav med kollegorna på Furuboda. Nästan kolsvart med en brun skumpuck ovanpå. Doft av kaffe, choklad och mörka torkade frukter. Fantastiskt balanserad och smakrik. Lätt syrlig, sötma åt mörk torkad frukt som katrinplommon, lite portvin, choklad och kaffe. En upplevelse.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours very dark reddish brown with a huge fluffy tan head that lasts ages. Aroma is sweet and spicy with notes of caramel, vanilla, dark grapes, cinnamon, raisins and dates. Flavour is pretty much the same with the emphasis on the spices and dark fruits plus a hint of aniseed. Alcohol is very well hidden. Medium bodied with lots of tingly carbonation and a lingering spicy, bittersweet finish. Very good, complex example of a strong Belgian dark ale, maybe a little heavy on the spice but otherwise a great brew.

Deep, dark and complex. More dark fruityness than chocolatey / coffeey, but delivered with style - smooth and rich, with a clean linger

Quack-Duck (8299) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2010
bottle, with thanks to bierkoning! Copper-golden colour, large brown head. Sweet malty nose. Full-bodied, malty, lots of caramel and chocolate, herbal-spicy hops are also very present. Nice bitter-sweet character. A delicious beer.

thebeertourist (4937) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle from de Bierkoning. Very dark reddish brown with a big, beige head. Plummy aromas followed by chocolate, pears, plummy flavours. Complex and very nice.

hawthorne00 (2589) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2010
Pretty and ruthless, eh? Bottle. Almost black with a huge light tan head. Aroma has toast, nuts, herbs, earth. cocoa, baked rhubarb (?!), vanilla, black pepper, whisky. Taste is spicy and sweet with gentle roasted flavour and dark fruits before earthy and spicy finishing bitterness. Some salt at the end. Smooth verging upon oily mouthfeel. I see others have said old ale - I don’t know but I don’t think it fits in with the very broad BSA category. The bitterness and alcohol stand out a bit much, but it’s interesting and good.

Tap at biero. Masterpiece. Aromas of liquorice, caramel, and chocolate.Taste has sweet and bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is silky, with a medium-to-full body. Dark brown, with a creamy head.

LomYst (553) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2010
Sick beer, comes in a beautiful handmade looking bottle... pours with an insane light head which tastes like dark chocolat... aroma consists of malts, dark fruit, some liquorish, spices (some chillipepper?) chocolat coffey and so on... most of those flavours reappear in the taste, especially the coffey, malts and chocolat... the liquid feel very lively.. body quiet full... so good to know that we dutch people right now are making awesome stuff that can easily compete with belgian strong ales... yeaaah
