Swaroga (1864) - 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.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2011
Bottled. A mahogany coloured beer with an off-white pool of head. Pretty thin all round. Bits of yeast and spice in the mouth. Dry and nutty in the nose. Pretty plain although late brown fruits make it more interesting.

Bottle called "Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren". Poors a very nice clear brown, with strong off-white head that sticks around. Aroma is not very strong, a little sweet maybe. Taste of malt, a little but not too sweet, coffee, some yeast. Not too bad.

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.
