dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2005
Bottled. Weak nose with caramelly, somewhat fruity, strawberry aromas. Tastes fruity, malty and caramelly. Finishes malty, sweet and slightly alcoholic. Okay, decent, but not overly complex, too sweet and a tad boring.

I thought this beer was enjoyable. It poured dark with a nice head on it. And the smell and taste of fruit with a little alcohol on the aftertaste. I would definitely buy again

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2005
Bottle: Dark amber coloured, thin but very long lasting off-white head; fruity (raisins) sweetish nose; sweet, fruity beginning, sweet flavour; quite thin bodied compared to it’s alcoholic strength; slightly bitter ending (chocolate); lacks complexity and character........

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Nice mahagany colour with a smaller tan head...much smaller and less fluffy than the blonde. Lacing all over. Lots of dark fruits pour over into a semi fizzy feel. even a little plum and black cherry. Smell is the same with a mild malty overtone. Very smooth and very enjoyable with very little hop.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Bright, Shiny mahogany, with a messy tan head. Strong raisin/prune aroma, with notes of chocolate, cherry, and port. Thick palate. Smooth and fruity, with a sloght smoky bacckground. Almost no bitterness, but a pronunced alcohol burn. Smoth, but a bit one dimensional. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Bottle from The Carousel in PC Beach. Poured a dark amber to brown color with a modest and somewhat creamy head that is light tan in color. Aroma is caramel malty, yeasty and sweet toffees...very sugary. Flavor is loaded with malts, lotsa caramel...medium bodied. Finish is still malty, but there is some hop bitterness in there somewhere. Aftertaste has hints of dryness. Not an exhilarating dubble, but it’s not bad either.

crazyvin (1911) - New York, USA - MAY 28, 2005
didn’t catch the brandy-like finish. kind of a disappontment in the fact that the flavor was rather weak. Some yeasty malt notes and a sweet finish, but very weak.

Bottle. Dark coloured with a creamy head, very sweet, fruity some chocolate taste to it. Sticky.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2005
This is a very nice Belgian-style double that pours amber with a tan head. The nose is very yeasty with hints of alcohol. There’s a certain fruitiness that resembles plumbs or perhaps Juicy Fruit gum. This is a very sweet brew overall with only a mild citrus bitterness. The carbonation is very tame for a Belgian style.

(bottle) Pours nice. Great color, decent light brown head The aroma is toffee and caramel. The flavor was a little to creamy/sweet for my liking, but definitely drinkable
