Bottle. Aroma of dark fruits. Malty and fruity flavor. Some caramel. Rather sweetish. Nice beer to drink on a cold winter evening.

Latest in what’s becoming a bit of dark BSA cellar run. Aroma rye bread dunked in Baltic seawater, bay leaf, clove, Chinese (food), some nectarine. Cherry red with a beige swirl, legs dragging the lace back into the pot. Salvaging raft of wholemeal malts; flavour hanging on by its fingertips in a sea of demerara, cherry-accented booze, Battenberg, liquidised banana cake. The words ’Deca’ and ’Vleteren’ on the side of a Belgian beer bottle excite me, but the contents of this one doesn’t.

A nice beer with a good foam and decent flavors in the nose and palate.

eManu (516) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2009
Saddly I lost half of this beer when I openned it, it gushed out of the bottle and I try to stop it but it was gone. So what was left was poured with a dark red brown color with an off white head. Aroma of roasted malts and caramels. Flavors of roasted malts, caramels dry fruits as grapes, some honey, a hint of cinnamon and spices. Low carbonation, and a sweet dry finish. A very pleasant and warm beer.

gunnar (7132) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle 0,25 l. Pours unclear golden, with a huge fine lazed creamy white head. Aroma of sweet malt,barn. Taste is sweet malt, first and foremost of the nutty kind, gets darker towards the end, more intense.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. Mahogany brown, cloudy, murky with yeast. Has a funkified Flemish aroma with good dark sugars and alcohol detected. Is vineous and barrely. Fruity. Soft palate. Flavors finish nicely with bready malts. there are also lots of orchard fruits in the beginning, apples and plums. Not bad.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle, from Dranken Geers I think. Quite odd. Not great when rated as a Belgian Strong Ale but I quite enjoyed it all the same. Dark brown, quickly fading beige head. Seemed to be fizzy but with low carbonation palate wise? Perhaps I was just drunk. Dark fruits, prunes, alcohol, yeast, malts.
