suprchunk (2672) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren. Rich reddish mahogany color. Almost a gusher, but it calmed down after only minimal loss and I was left with a healthy cream colored head. Ample and lasting. It slowly dies down and leave a thick layer of foam on the glass. A malty aroma right up front. A bit of dark fruits and caramel and sugar. Malty flavor with biscuit and toast mixed in. Sweet and a little dry. Creamy mouthfeel with a bit of carbonation. Decent beer.

Koelschtrinker (13117) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Sehr würziger Antrunk, etwas malzig, der Alkohol macht sich leicht bemerkbar. Im Mittelteil weiter malzig-würzig, nur sehr leicht hopfig um das harmonische Aroma nicht zu stören. Erst im Abgang wird das Bier säuerlich und lässt so einen Aromenwechsel zu, weiterhin ist aber das Malz führend, die Würzigkeit nimmt leicht ab und wird brotig. Der Alkohol ist hier zu erahnen, hält sich aber vorbildlich zurück. Mittellanger und leicht röstiger Malzabgang. Nett! Test vom 13.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,12,12,12,8,12 - 11,70

330 ml bottle. As Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren. From Woesten/Vleteren, Belgium. Pours a hazy burgandy with fair tan head. Nose is like sweet old cardboard. Flavor has oxidation, and dark dried fruits. Sweet, but dry yeasty finish. Huge carbonation. I rather enjoyed it.
