Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2005
Pour is murky murky ugly brown with a tight bubbled off white head...smell is meat, figs, plums, leather, tobacco...maybe chocolate...taste is earthy and almost chewy...earth fruits, yeast, bitterness, nuts...I can’t say it was great, nor can I say it is bad...I just don’t know...

pivo (2556) - GERMANY - OCT 30, 2005
Yeasty nose with a hint of syrup, murky pale gold color, sticky low head. Honey malt tastes, cashew nuttiness. Bit bitter end that lingers. Think body, rich and lush. Interesting brew - big and flavorful. I liked this one.

YogiBeera (2464) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Murky brown-orange color. Small fast diminishing head. Intense yeast and ripe banana nose. Very intense malt, caramel and almond taste - lot’s of tabacco. Long lasting with a smokey finished. I liked it a lot!

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Hazy, greyish brown beer with a creamy head. Very burned malt - almost stout-like - an extremely dry, bitter finish. 111098

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2005
Very hazy brown-orange color and small bubbely beige foam. Sweet nutty maltyness, touches of speculoos and some smooth nutty accents. Also dry caramelly hints in the taste ending with a fresh bitterness of hops.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Couleur brune noisette, doté d’une faible mousse légèrement brune. Nez très levuré présentant des arômes de sucre candi prononcé, de caramel et de vieux concombre. La texture laiteuse combiné au fortes flaveurs de sucre en poudre me déroute complètement. Je ne comprends pas du tout ce qu’on me suggère ici. Délirium Café, Mars 2005

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
Mildly sweet and big malt possible decoction mash. Malts are Big roasted and somewhat tannic with a bit of a portlike note. Plums, Grapes, Leather, Marzipan, Toffee, nuts and earthy malt body. Very mild hopping and a clean but heavy finish.

sayravai (4671) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2005
(Bottled) Muddy darkish brown with a medium, beige and creamy head. Slightly sour and wineous aroma with toffee, plums, pepper, tobacco, leather, some alcohol and tannic hints. Sweet-caramely, very malty flavor with rye-pudding and a dryish, roasted and slightly alcoholic finish. Quite full-bodied, warming palate with slightly too strong and fizzy carbonation. A very enjoyable and balanced, imperial stout -like brew for sipping it down slowly. A very pleasant surprise, and quite unbelgian!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2005
Dark brown, cloudy color. Nice beige lasting foam. Mildly vinous, chocolate, spicy and slightly alcoholic aroma. Flavor has chocolate, sweetness, mild spices and dries nicely in the end. Medium to full bodied, nice lace in glass. Mild alcohol comes up in the end.

Bottled 25cl, different label than in RB (BB 06/2005)
Hazy nut brown, medium tanned head. Lively carbonation. Aroma of coffee and plums. Medium-bodied. Flavor is roasted, hoppy, malty with dark chocolate. This one has strong late bitterness and warming alcohol.
