Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
In short: A decent but very basic caramelized Strong Belgian Dark Ale.
How: Bottle at Flossmoor on Pre-Dark-Lord-Day party 2008. Almost 1 year old (June 2007 vintage). Unknown generous soul, thanks a lot whoever you are.
The look: Clear dark amber body with a small off-white head.
In long: Heavily caramelized body, lively Belgian carbonation, some dark fruits, above average sweetness. Not much else to say really. A big Belgian style beer with no real character. A pleasant beer but in that overcrowded Strong Belgian Dark Ale this one is the french-fries side order on a big restaurant menu.

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2008
This one poured a brown color with a beige head. The aroma consists of cherries, nutmeg, brown sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Am I crazy but I taste some ginger in there? I also get some caramel, nutmeg, dark fruit, and a hint of citrus. Overall this was a nice Belgian Strong.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle thanks to miketd: Pours a transparent copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet dark toasty caramel malt and good bready Belgian yeasty. Body starts fairly full and toasty caramely sweet with a good light fruity complexity and some full, biscuity maltiness. A true to style and enjoyable Belgian strong.

puzzl (3240) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Tap at Hop Devil. Big, fruity aroma, lots of banana, grainy malt, taste is a bit astringent. Reminds me of banana bread. Very malty flavor, light tropical fruit, pine, not too much alcohol, and not great.
