Parket (581) - Bruges, - 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’.

rikstar (1975) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2016
0,33l fles bij wapen van Wogmeer 3 jaar extra rijping hebben het bier niet veel goed gedaan ben ik bang geef het daarom voordeel de twijfel. Roodbruin met een crème kraag. zoetig met caramel verder beetje dun.

Moravius (1041) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 23, 2016
Flasche ("Vleteren Dark Old Strong Ale", 33 cl) vom Bierzwerg. - Rotbraun, trüb; fester Schaum. - Nase appetitlich süßsauer mit Karamel und milder Zitrone, abgerundet durch obergärige Hefe. - Antrunk warm dunkelmalzig mit einem milden Schuß fruchtiger Säure: Pflaume, herbe Zitronenschale, Bitterschokolade; eingebettet in runde Malzsüße. Mild rezent, für ein Starkbier fast leicht. Im weiteren Verlauf setzt holzige Herbe ein, die in einen fast schroffen Abgang mündet. Etwas penetrante muffig-harte Noten (oxidiert?) im Nachtrunk. - Schöne dunkle Malzigkeit, aufgelockert durch zart stechende Säure und abgerundet durch kräftige Herbe. Wäre ohne den muffigen Nachtrunk noch besser.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2016
Into a chalice at cellar temperature. A little mist from the proteins in suspension once the yeast goes in. A Tawny, ruddy chestnut with a compact and tight off white sheen atop. Head holds and laces a fine Belgian lace. Bread pudding nose with hints of spicy brandy, sultanas, dried orange peel, prunes and treacle. Quite light on the palate. Well attenuated and lean. Plenty of booze, sherry, rust and blood with an almost taste to the finish. Bready and yeasty with hints of plum, sultana and dates. Slightly tannic and astringent on the swallow as it goes. Becomes harder to drink, which I found odd. Not a very demanding or complex strong but it does have that oxidised ’old’ ale character that gives it a little charm - if that was they were going for!? (33cL, BBE 10/17, Int’l Beer Shop, Leederville)

kingstoni (1880) - FINLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle. Hazy dark reddish copper color with a medium thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of berries, yeast and wheat. Medium bitter taste with some sourness. Medium body.

Sweet aroma, a little brown sugar, a bit of cough syrop. Taste sweet and alcoholic on top. Falls on your tongue, which hollows out the taste..

PeatyPete (815) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2016
Amber coloured with beige quickly vanishing head. Sugary and caramel aroma. Taste of ripe fruit, caramel and some vinegar.

mgajdaczewa (1487) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
W aromacie suszone owoce, karmel, cukier, niezbyt zachęcająco. W smaku zaskakująco puste, zbyt wysoko nasycone, karmel i cukier. Brak szlachetnych nut drożdżowych. Przeciętne piwo.

mandaritto (165) - LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
Some corianre in this one, very bad aroma. Kind of a lager+coriandre. Not so bad though. At first caramel, coriandre, fruity, but then the hopps kicked in. It would be much nicer if the watery lagerish aftertaste didn’t last... drinkable brew though

Vells (1368) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
Quite sad brew.. If aroma at first seems boozy, but dried fruits kinda welcomes, then first sips are, too harsh, too boozy, too unbalanced, and too watery in finish.. Some caramel, fark fruits floating around. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Boring.. disappointing for Belgian strong..

kajser27 (1129) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 24, 2015
Brown colored, hazy, some sediment and floaters, medium beige creamy head. Aroma is of brown sugar, caramel, dark fruits, apples, bit yeast. Taste is medium sweet brown sugar and caramel, apple, candy dark fruity, slightly roasted, some yeast. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sticky. Nothing special really...
