BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2007
[Sampled in 2003.] One of the most sampled bottles and one of the favorites once. Easy drinkable, too much sweetness, weak bitterness, yeast, brown sugar, fruit, chocolate and raisin. But I’m always ready for a Grimbergen!

Aroma is typically brune, nutty sweet hints of chocolate over the candy sugar. Taste is similar and very drinkable.

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg.
Clear dark brown color, big lasting tan head. Fruity and yeasty scent. Fruity cherry and ale yeast taste, metallic aftertaste. Spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Also a bit acidic, especially in the scent.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Mahogany pour with a small head, average lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, spice, raisin, hint of chocolate. Medium to light bodied with a slightly sweet finish. Enjoyable but not interesting.

DarkFaerytale (21) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle into Tulip glass: Aroma is full of beautifull dark fruits but ends a little candy sweet, clear dark ruby color when held up to the light, thin head but nice lacing, mouthfeel was a bit dryer than expected perhaps from high carbonation, but all in all a pretty nicely made beer

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Rated 8/15/06: Nice dark amber brown color with a good thick tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is medium with hints of dark fruits, chocolate, and some roasted sweetness. Mouthfeel is decent, but the flavor is a little off. Sweet and somewhat fruity it’s nice at first but there is a strange metallic like aftertaste that really puts this one off. Decent but I’m not very impressed.

berkshirejohn (5151) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2007
33cl bottle from Tescos. Chestnut with a cream head; sour, roasted malt aroma; smooth and sweet, with chocolate and caramel; then a very dry, warming finish with a raisin edge.

Gethinbeer (2298) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2007
Rich fruity bitter with a slight caramel aroma. Deep amber with an off white head. Very nice smooth rich flavour of caramel and hops. Fresh bitter finish. Very nice beer.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Dark crimson color, foamy tan head and a tornado-like stream of bubbles coming up the center of the tulip glass. An awesome overall appearance. Deep fruit aroma of plums and bannana mixed with malt overtones. The pallate is overly bubbly, detracting from the overall score. Sweet and fruity plus the fizz takes away any reminder of a high alcohol content. The double malt is evident but a little more emphasis on neutralizing hops would have helped. A fine beer, but doesn’t rise up to the top of the amazing ranks of other belgium legends.

tenghave (402) - Taastrup, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Belgisk Ale. Rødbrun øl med ingen vedvarende skum. Duften er af belgisk gær og af karamel. Ikke særlig kraftig duft. Smagen er krydret - nærmest som en juleøl. Belgisk gær anes. Dog ikke særlig dominerende. Anelese brændt i smagen. Ikke særlig fyldig, men heller ikke så høj alcohol. Generelt en god Ale
