RumRunner101 (809) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Muddy brown pour. Rich with dark fruits - dates, raisins, some caramel and butterscotch. Alcohol is well hidden. Good body, and complexity. Sweet, but not overly. Enjoyable.

jgb9348 (4851) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Deep hazy dark brown coloured body with a muddy brown glow and a thick, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, a nice yeast strain, some caramel and toffee, raisins, pit fruits and a bit of chocolate too. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malt flavour with a lot of caramel and raisin sweetness, some subdued yeast and spice flavours, but a good dense and deep chocolate and earthy malt notes. Aftertaste shows a good complex set of flavours with the sugars and yeast coming through most often. Overall, a nice belgian strong, closest to a dubbel, but a good flavour profile and some nice interesting tastes. Great to try, if you can still find it, grab it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 25-April-2013 for US$8.31 sampled at home in Washington on 23-July-2013.

Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Tap at Gigantic, PDX, 22/05/13. Clear chestnut brown with reddish hues and a thin beige head. Nose is dark fruits, toffee, dates, light spice. Taste comprises dark fruit compote, raisens, brown bread dough, dates, brown sugars, toffee fudge, light booze. Full end of medium bodied with fine carbonation, fruity tang in the finish. Solid enough Belgian affair.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pours a hazy sienna color with two fingers of foam. On the nose its got a dose of sweet malt, belgian yeast, and banana bread. The palate follows the nose with flavors of raisin, date, nutmeg, clove and brown sugar. A bit sugary but drinkable.

BrewDad (5040) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Dark amber in color, hazy with a thin head. Super Belgian flavor and aroma. Very tasty yeast and great malt and hops balance. Nice strong ale.

PapaSkeetSkeet (861) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Brown. A lightly caramelly quad characterized by its robust, deep earthy hop notes which compliment the maltiness. Good, not delicate, moderately complex. On the verge of chewy.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Pours dark brown, beige head. Nose is brown sugar, yeast, slight dark fruit, caramel. Flavour is dark fruit, caramel, molasses. Finish is um Belgian. Feels simple compared to other Belgian Strong Dark Ales, I think it’s because of the lack of spiciness? Very good, though.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle @ Mondial - bark roily brown with a modest cap, low carbonation....big waft of fruits in the aroma, ome funk and sweetness, fusel alcohol. Medium body, rich oily mouth feel. Flavour is primarily cocoa and fruits - dark fruits, stone fruit, some resinous hopping shows later, big malt layering....finishes a bit dry and bitter. A tad too sweet for me.
