doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2007
2004 bottle. I was worried that the cork had gone bad since there were dried brown drops runnig down the neck. Cork released with a reassuring pop. Light brown head that fully vanished. Hazy and murky, dark amber. Heavy yeast, but also some barnyard and mold aromas. This is a bit skunked, me thinks. There was still some good carbonation. Could taste some dried fruit. I guess this one is best drunk fresh. It was properly stored since I bought it in 2004.

MattShizzle (577) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle. Copper color, clear. Quite rich and strong. Spicy flavor. No hops to speak of. Doesnt taste as strong as it actually is, though.

Whorst (15) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Taste like bad homebrew. Dry finish Im assuming is attributed to the use of copious amounts of Belgian rock candy sugar. Not for everyone.

browner (41) - Delafield, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2007
A romantic cloudy and deep warm brown color with a beautiful light off white head. While the head does not stand long the light effervescent clings to the glass.Quite a bit of carbonation but not as much as sister Delirium. Aromas of malt are masked by an under layment of caramel and spices. Nice finish and while similar to a variety of Belgium Ales it is a nice seasonsonal surprise and more complex than trendy.

nimbleprop (6653) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Poured a opaque nut brown color with a foamy medium bodied slightly off white head. Strong aroma of apples and alcohol. You can just tell this is gonna burn the palate. Flavor is similar, warm and tingly on the tongue with a bitter sweet bite to it. Main flavor is apple but with a nutty finish. I can never tell the Belgians apart but this was drinkable.

ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle. Poured a murky brown color with very little head. Aroma of citrus and bananas. Taste like any other belgiun ale.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 30, 2006
330ml opaque bottle. Very dense dark amber color with a lasting head. Mellow spicy/malty aromas. Big body and full mouthfeel. Intense malt and estery flavors. Big malty flavor starts slightly dry and then tilts toward the slightly sweet, with the alcohol presence building into the finish. Complex and well done.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Cold 25.4oz corked bottle: Pours a cloudy dark orange color with minimal alabaster bubbles around the edges of the glass. Aroma is of sweet malts, alcohol, caramel and fruit. Medium bodied, crisp and well carbonated. Ending is of alcohol burn, sweet malts and fruit notes.

Dedollewaitor (15067) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2006
Tap at Chr. Firtal, Odense: Dark amber with fine white head. Smooth and filling texture. Spices, easy alcohol and malty sweetness. Very creamy and delicious. Live carbonation. Complex! Excellent lasting finish! Great Belgium!
