Caramel, raisin. Plenty of Maple syrup, rich cereals, dark fruit, sweet finish. Interesting maple twist on a Belgian strong, the sweetness totally covers the alcohol but slowly gets quite overwhelming.

bottle, pours light redish brown, tall tan head, tons of floaties. Yeast and prune mixed with some spice aroma. Slightly malty sweet with a bitter sour grapefruit kindof finish. Some alcohol burn and a peppery spice in the finish. A good sipper.

Bottle, Red Zebra, Derby. Somewhat hazy recollection of this effort, as the last beer of a good session, but I don’t think anything truly memorable happened here. Dark brown and somewhat excessively sweet were my enduring and only memories.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2006
Bottle (La Loubecoise Brune, from Utobeer): Darker brown in colour, with a huge, ever-expanding tan head. Ruby hue too. Great looking beer. Aroma of prunes, raisins, yeasty bread and blended spices. Sweetish flavour with a strong cinnamon and ginger finish. Ginger is a tad off putting, doesn’t blend in well. Medium-full bodied feel. Smells great but the flavour lets it down.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 Bottled; Drinks pretty not bad ; any Maple syrup is ’there’ but not too much so ; Loads of rich malt caramel, dried fruit , dryish finish ; Pretty decent .

Thank you to share this one with me! If I read the comments here, I’m pretty sure we got a bad bottle... still was good for a year or so, but I didn’t get this good feeling about this beer at all... Little sour smell, spices, fruits, lots of spices, something anice/mint like. Weird. Head is ok, but don(t hold good. Taste kicks very hard in. Sour fruits and spices. Completly out of balane, totally not my taste. To not just say bad... Have to retry this one some day, cause this can’t be how it’s ment to taste.

Presa da Pier al Duca il 24 sera; un’altra ottima birra ’calorosa’ di Ecaussinnes, con dolcezza non stucchevole e una complessità notevolissima.
