inbirraveritas (1256) - Budapest, - AUG 3, 2012
33 cl bottle (2012). Unclear deep dark brown with a medium sized beige head, which leaves a thin film behind. Dried fruity aroma ruled by raisin and plum escorted by citrusses, caramel, chocolate and alcohol. Syrupy, slick texture. Long and tart finish with dark chocolate, spices and liqueur. Fine as expected.

ABT_S54 (200) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
33cl bottle served in Kasteel glass. Pours a thin dark brown colour with very little head or carbonation. Aroma is quite muted and the taste is thinnish with nothing to set it apart from other Belgians of the style. Watery mouthfeel for the style with licorice, malts and a medicinal dryness. Better than a standard Kasteel Donker which is too sweet but nowhere near a vintage aged donker which is truly exceptional.

I loved this beer and the fact that it is vintage dated. Lots of alcohol warmth to it and dried fruits on the tongue. There was a good amount of malt to keep it interesting and it wasn’t too sweet which I was afraid it might be. I want to buy this one every year and get a vertical going.

Boxereddy (150) - BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2014
Donkerbruin bier met roodachtige tinten, snelzakkende witte schuimkraag. Aroma is zoet fruitig en alcoholisch. Smaak is rijk zoet moutig met fruitige noten van pruimen en rozijnen. Kelderrijping is een duidelijke plus!

Strykzone (5067) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
750 that was on sale for $3.99 at Randalls. Almost as dark as a stout with a tan head. Aroma is a bit boozy but also very malty. The flavor is big sweet malts with a lot of raisin notes. A little spice pops in from time to time and chocolate does the same.

UDBeernut (1848) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle spilt with wife pours dark Amber, cream hued head. Big cherry, some plum, mild caramel. Finish is light banana. Big body, slight booze burn. Decent.

nearbeer (3842) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2014
33 cl. bottled 2013/05/29. Pours opaque dark brown with a lasting film of foam. Nose is dark cherry, bread dough, metallic prune and a hint of baker’s chocolate. Tastes of dark chocolate, merlot, dark cherry and plum. Finish is bitter with apple core, light toasted wood and peppery spice. Medium-heavy body has a nice balance and hides the abv well. The slight tingle of CO2 and touch of warming makes this a pretty smooth winter sipper.

Franksv6 (271) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Dark brown beer with a small white head, high carbonation. Smells fruity. Tastes like fruity, roasted malt, chocolate, strong alcohol. Easy to drink despite its strong beer.
