golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle, thanks to BBG. Dark blond / orange pour with nice white head. Aroma of spices, some bubblegum, pale belgian malt, and a little bready / pilsner like malt. Flavor is doughy malt, bubblegum, somewhat sweet from the pale belgian malt, but nice spicing also. It’s a tiny bit medicinal, but otherwise good. Solid yeast in the back and finish.

Bontus (714) - Flanders, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle from Deca services. Pours murky brown with a beige head. Aroma is very yeasty, dough, bread, also a hint of liquorice. Mouth feel a bit too carbonated and had yeast dominating the aftertaste too much. Will drink an aged one next year, guess it will be alot better. (3.2) rerate: Bottles now 7 months old and much better. Carbonation and yeasts milder and flavors more balanced. Liquorice and molasses upfront. Silky palate. (3.5)

StefanSD (2246) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2008
330 ml bottle from Belgian shop. Pours a cloudy-murky dark brown color with a big clumpy cream head. The aroma is rich with spicy Belgian yeasts, cola, raisins and caramel. The taste does not quite live up to the aroma--sweet roasted malts with brown sugar, a bit of raisin and a touch caramel. The mouthfeel is light with over-active carbonation that distracts. The finish is medium in duration with lingering brown sugar. Overall: A decent Belgian ale, but not top tier stuff.

skortila (5003) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2008
Bottled, tnx joes for leaving it in Bunnik. Aroma has malts and spices. Clear, brown coloured beer with a lasting off-white head. Taste has raisin, sweet caramel, some yeast. Bit carbonated and unbalanced.

caesar (6172) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2008
Bottled, thx to joes. Dark color, short head. Very spicy aroma, roasted malt. Quite strong taste of roasted malt, some raisin, some caramel and yeast as well. Decent belgian stuff.

yespr (37603) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2008
33 cL bottle, as Vleteren Dark Old Strong Ale, 8%. Pours dark and hazy brown with a lacing tan head. Orange fruity and spiced aroma with a note of roasted malt. Flavour is sweet and roasted malt with a distinct note of fruity yeast. Caramelish finish with a mild yeasty touch. Good but certainly nothing special.
