Dedollewaitor (15536) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
Bought at Penny Market (Italy) for the prize of 1.05 Euro!: Brown with reddish hew. Aroma of dark fruits & roasted malts. Medium sweetness. Texture is medium filling to almost watery. Medium carbonation. Enjoyable but defenetly needs a kick of everything- no force. Finish is rather short. An abbey ale that is slight beneath average for its type!

bhensonb (14077) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Aroma of malt and light hints of dark fruit. Color is deep brown with minimal head. Sweet beginning with grape, and perhaps a bit of dark stone fruit. There is a background of chocolate and caramel, but concord grape keeps coming to mind. Just a hint, mind. Really quite nice.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2007
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 330ml bottle (5:3:6:2:11=2.7)
Rich brown, quickly dissipating head.Slightly metallic bitter aroma, but also sweet and fruity. Lively in the mouth. Nice aspect of the taste include a raisiny sweetness and both richly roasted ans sweet notes of malt, but alas that’s overshadowed by a thinness, too harsh alcohol, sickly sweetness, and something quite metallic. Falls far short of the better dubbels.
Rerate: Tap (Hovipoikka, Tampere) (4:3:4:2:8=2.1)
Eww, sour aroma. Watery palate, positively thin, almost fizzy too. Unpleasant messy roasted malt taste. Only positive is that the alcohol’s hidden. However, I’d not even think about drinking enough of this to get drunk, as it’s so unpleasant.
Unwanted rerate: Tap (Belmontas, Vilnius)) (7:4:5+:3+:11+=3.0+++)
Super sweet raisiny berry aroma, fruitcakey, hedonistically very nice, if a bit bizarre in its caricature. Tastes like a typical boring belgian brune - bready sweet, a bit yeasty, yet also cleanish. Reminds me of a softer sweeter version of the tongerlo I used to have in the Daily News at 7am. Before food, this was quite full. After food, it seems weak.

Tmoney99 (13465) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average light brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
