Pour out of 250 mL bottle, thanks Amy! Dark reddish brown pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of sour green apple, dark fruit, caramel molasses, dark cocoa notes, toffee notes, with a hint of biscuit yeast. Taste is dark fruits, caramel, toffee, white fruit, grapes, pear, hints of vanilla sweetness with a slight honey note. Interesting for sure!

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2012
bottle, dark amber/brown beer with foamy white head. Smell: some roasted malts, industrial, strange .. , Taste: roasted malts, some yeasts, grainy. Easy one, not bad, but also nothing ’special’.

Storm_Warning (77) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Currently drinking while typing. After pouring there isn’t a huge excitement from the aroma, mainly sugars, alcohol, spices, yeastiness, toasty malts and some hay. Poured with an ok off-white soft foamy head which soon melted back into a cloudy brown murkiness, not hugely appetising to look at. The flavours aren’t bad though, nothing out of the ordinary but still quite interesting. Mainly it is pretty spicy and malty, also yeasts, sugars, woody toastiness, quite a bit of alcohol and some barnyard flavours too. Malty on the finish with a slight brown sugar edge to it as well, some very subtle mellow hops too. Medium body with a slightly oily texture to it, suitably average carbonation with a fairly long malty finish. Not a bad brew at all, nothing to shout about but certainly worth trying!

Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2012
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. "Vleteren Dark Old Strong Ale") Reddish brown colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar and roasted malt. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, chocolate, dried fruit, raisins, brown sugar and a well rounded, bitter-sweet finish. Almost full body, smooth and rounded mouthfeel, with a certain sweetness. Well balanced and quite nice.

Very dark brown colour. Aroma is woody and malty. Flavour has some sweet almost juicy fruitiness. Texture a bit syrupy.

Swaroga (1343) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2012
33cl bottle (Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren). Pours a dark brown with a small dirty head. Nose : caramel, cheese, hay, banana and flower hops. The bottom layer smells a bit like pils ? Sip : low density with a creamy feeling, with strong carbonation. Sweet with dried fruits aromas, develops a very fine bitter end of noble hops. Delicate and balanced.

Sous le nom de " Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren". Bouteille de 33cl. Une brune avec une jolie mousse abondante de tenue très honnète. Arômes fruités et de malts torréfiés. Longueur très correcte, une brune classique mais sympa. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.
