beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2007
From my long lost notes, sampled August, 2004 in Newark, DE. Pours a hazy brown with a thin off-white head that left no lacing. Pleasant aroma of plums with some malt as well. The flavor is also plums with malt.

Draft. Hazy brown pour, with aroma of dark fruit, spice, candi sugary malt. The flavor was sweet, with a medium to dense palate, and flavors of caramel malt, figgy fruit, brown sugar, and molasses.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Pours a hazy brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet and oaky. The flavor was a little raisiny, with some subtle brown sugar and cherry hints. Not the most exciting thing to come out of I.H.

Shag (2843) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
Reddish brown appearance. There wasnt a whole lot going on with this one. Somewhat sweet and yeasty with a slight spice presence and some nutmeg. Some other flavors include oak, cherries, and almonds. A fairly weak palate. Not too impressive but ok.

egajdzis (6136) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2005
Poured an amber brown color with a small, off white head that left very light lacing on the glass. Aroma of spicy clove, banana, butterscotch, oaken wood, yeast, and also does not smell as though it was completely fermented. Sweet toffee and caramel maltiness, dried fruits, chocolate and nuts.

hopdog (11653) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2005
On tap at Wilmington as part of their Belgian Beer Fest (brewed at the Neward location). Poured a medium brown color with a very small off white head. Aromas of dark fruits and sweet malts. Tastes of plums and sweet malts. Did I mention that this was a little on the sweet side. A little fruity and some caramel as weel.

As far as I know, this Belgian Brown is NOT the Abbey Dubbel. The Abbey Dubbel is made at the Wilmington location, and this was from the Newark location. Anyway, it pours a dark brown with very little head. Aroma of fig, cherries, and sugar. After letting it warm up a bit, I took a drink and noticed a nice malty flavor with more cherry/fig notes, as well as candy sugar. Finishes dry and a bit sweet.
