Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of dark fruit, caramel, sweet malt, sugar, molasses, alcohol. Tastes boozy with some fruity hints. Too much sweetness on the finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Tap @ Ginger Man. Poured a clear deep cherry wood color with a beige head. Sweet aroma with notes of plums and figs. The flavor is also sweet with dark fruits but drys slightly. Medium bodied with a silky feel on the tongue. Good warmth with zero alcohol flavor or aroma. Tasty and very drinkable but not on the level of the top ones.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours a deep red with a small head. Aroma of raisin, dark fruits. Flavor of Belgian yeast, alcohol, honey. Very hot and gets worse as it warms. Very sweet as well, a real sugary, alcoholic mess. Reminds me of mead or Kasteel Brune. Ick.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at Ginger Man. Aroma of light asphalt, musty grass, caramelized fruits, medicinal fruits. In the mouth, medicinal fruits dominate. Not pleasant, and not even interesting enough to get a few giveaway points.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - JUN 20, 2008
On draft at Brick Store. Pours a dark garnet brown with billowy, beige head. Quite a strange aroma, most reminiscent of muscadine grapes, with a barnyard hop character. Starts sweet and comples like a dubbel with notes of figs, dark candi sugar, and brandy before morphing unusually into a dry, straw-like hop finish. Definitely an unusual beer, but pleasant in small quantities.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Tap at Ginger Man. Deep brown beer with light garnet highlights. Aroma is fairly fruity with a light plumminess. Soft candied sweetness with lots of cotton candy and very light brown sugar. A hint of date/plum sweetness, but nothing overpowering at all. Lightly peppery with a light alcoholic bite. Noble hops seems to play a pretty strong role in both the aroma and the flavour of this one but they integrate pretty well with the light fruit and soft malts. Vaguely licoricey. A bit of orange-peel and berryish fruits. Quite light-bodied really. It’s okay, but not great.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2008
At KBW in Vichte (B). A red/brown colored beer, with a nice beige foamy head. An aroma of several fruits and dark malts. The taste is sweet, of some honey and banana. It has a touch of chocolate. Nice bitterness. Alcohol is not dominating. A good beer.

Nate (3549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
On tap at The Thirsty Monk, Asheville. Mild lactic yeasty sourness with a bit of mild candi sugar and cherry skin sourness. Dark amber-brown clear with foamy lacing head off-white head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and light alcohol warming. Starts sweet with caramel and neutral fruit sweetness. Candi sugar and light yeasty finish. Sweet with bit of cooked corn and brown sugar. Fairly clean after.

wacho (52) - Izegem, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 het robijnkleurige bier die ik nu proefde is ook al 2 jaar oud. De trots van de Oostendse Bierjutters heeft een zacht zoete en fruitige smaak. Een lichte toets van de foeder komt meer tot zijn recht in de afdronk. Een der beste bieren die ik dit jaar heb geproeft. Met zijn caramelaroma heeft hij een vrij moutachtige smaak en de lichte zurigheid die vele trappisten kenmerkt.
