Acarotibia (55) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2008
Soft aroma and dark golden colour with soft and bitter foam. Sweet fruit flavor with a sad metallic palate. Good beer but you better not finish your drink with it.

AmEricanbrew (6731) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2008
33 cl. bottle with " 08 -01 -05 " printed on bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown. Has an off white head which leaves a beautiful lace. Mild aroma of black pepper, spices, and caramel. Light to medium bodied, it has a chalky, dry mouthfeel. A malty caramel sweetness dominates the flavor. A nice, easy drinking brew. 2004

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - JAN 9, 2008
Nice appearance, quite bland nose, bit malty, very slightly chocolate, bit fruity. Flavours are as bland as aromas with a bad metallic finish.

taunusmies (350) - FINLAND - JAN 7, 2008
Pours nicely dark brown colour. Taste is malty and bready with spicy hops. Quite sweet and fruity. Could have a bit stronger body. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 6, 2008
Nice brown color with a medium but stable beige head. The flavour is creamy caramell and sweetish with moderated hop and carbonation. You can feel a little alcoholic taste at the dry finish.

Bottle. Dark brown in color. Good. Slightly roasy. Sweet. Decent head - some biterness at the end.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
It’s a dark brown beer with a very nice and lasting head. The flavour is sweetish with notes of fruit (plum, raisin), caramel and a moderate bitterness in the long finish, where the grapefruit acidity, that I find in the Grimbergens, com in. But in this one it’s in a nice way, and as such this is the Grimbergen, that I like the best.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
330ml bottle. Dark brown with a decent off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit and molasses. Flavour was sweet and yeasty with plenty of candy sugar and a slightly dry finish. Ok, but a bit dull.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a deep burgundy brown with a creamy, beige head that diminishes leaving wispy lace in its wake. Raisins, toffee and dry red wine all come out in the aroma. Medium-bodied and creamy with a metallic and lightly astringent finish. Falling short of the nose, the flavor is of raisin and light toffee with a fruity, astringent finish. This bottle might have been oxidized a bit as it has a hint of dry cardboard and odd fruity notes that seem slightly out of place. The brewers website provides no clue as to the age of the bottle (Code: 1306NL1645B). So, I guess I’ll just have to re-rate this one at a later date, but given how unimpressed I was with this bottle, it’ll probably be quite some time before I revisit this beer.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Nose of brown sugar, rainsins, dark rum. A soft nuttiness and slight metallic finish. Nothing too special but nothing too crappy either. A good middle of the road dubbel.
