imdownthepub (11109) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2007
Keg on tap at A ge Panne, Schin op Geul, NL Limburg. Dark brown with red hue, tan head. This is down as a Seizonbier, but it seems to be constantly available on keg at this wonderful pub on the valkenburg road. Heavy, sweetish and fruity, dark and deep in flavour. A late hoppiness completes a decent beer. Nice.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 1, 2007
My very first and so far only Gulpener beer. Bottle. Dark brown colour with a bubbly average lasting light brown fair sized head. Aroma of toasted malts, spices and some sweet caramel. Sweet aroma of dark malts, some bitter hops, some fruits (raisins), spiciness and some alcohol. Short lasting slightly bitter aftertaste with a touch of toasted malts.

Skinnyviking (7501) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle. Light bronw fluffy lasting head. Clear dark red bronw body. Spicy malt aroma. Well balanced spicy dry flavor with a suitable amount of carbonation and relatively long aftertaste. Pleasant surprise.

ha1ag (750) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2006
It took me lots of efforts to try an other Dutch beer (read my comments about Wiekske Witte) but this was above expectations. Mahagoney red color, soft beige head. Middle carbonation which covers sweetness first. Malt and Caramel comes through. A bit too sweet for my taste

JorisPPattyn (8228) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2006
Yellow-brown head, slightly irregular dark beer with bright-ruby highlights. Sweet, gingerbread nose, vanilla, green cardemoms, caramel filling, very pâtisserie-like. Burnt, roasted, (autumn)leafy flavours (nuts & mushrooms), much less sweet than suggested by the nose. Bit coca-cola-like too, all the same (qua combination sweet-spicyness). Palate is a bit empty, shame. Rather fizzy, bit burning MF. Medium bodied at best. I like the initial taste, but gradually, too easy soft-drink characteristics take over. As said, shame, it appears to have more possibilities.

Choos (658) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2006
Aroma: light sweet malty notes with a hint of berry. Appearance: dark amber brown with a fluffy white head and amazing lacing. Flavour: sweet malty and candy with some floral notes and a touch of spiritousness. Palate: thin but gently carbonated with a hint of cinamon and berry in the aftertaste.
