TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Beer pours burgendy color with a big, thick off white head that is mostly retained. Aroma is significantely malty with some mild earthiness and a profound yeast aroma. Dark fruit aromas, too. Flavor is big malt flavor with yeast, licorice, and dark fruit. Seems a wee bit hot going down, but maybe I am just having an off stomach night. Perfect mouth feel as with almost all Belgian ales. Good beer.

sunevdj (3567) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2006
Pours a dark red/brown with a slightly tanned diminnishing head. Quite fruity and berry like and slightly sour. Hints of yeast. Medium to light bodied. Long fruity, crisp finish with some alcohol.

Fin (8853) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle, The Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium, 06-10-06. Dark brown beer, with large fluffy off white head, aroma little bit toffeeish, taste was more of the toffee with some malts and dark fruits, very good beer.

Hansen (8150) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2006
Like it. Unclear, brown beer. Dark, off-white head, big and lasting. Heavy, malty flavor. Aroma is malty too, laqurice, dark fruit. Lasting palate, perhaps a bitter finish.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2006
My first brew at Bier Garden Portsmouth VA. Deep brown with reddish tinit. Small foamy head. Strong Berry aroma, almost winelike. Sweet bitter, warming berry nut flavor. Medium to heavy bodied. A bit fizzy but pleasant.

DerDoppelbock (22) - Aachen, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2006
Die handwerkliche Brauerei Caracole (zu deutsch: Schnecke) feuert ihre Braukessel noch mit Holz. Das Nostradamus besitzt einen sehr geschmeidigen, erdig-malzig und röstig-malzigen Geruch. Der recht hohe Alkoholgehalt bleibt hinter dem anfangs prickelnden und dann hinter dem ausschweifend röstmalzigen, mit fruchtig-erdigen Noten versehenen Aromen versteckt. Im Mittelteil tauchen dann aber auch wieder die prickelnd-frischen Noten auf, die man bei solch einem Bier nicht erwartet. Bei der Balance gibt es nichts zu beklagen. Schmackhaft!

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Dark golden with a big fluffy head. Alchold aroma and taste. A bit sweet but nothing overwhelming. A flat overall drink

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught at The Beer Weekend, Brussels. A nice cloudy red colour. The thick off white head left a nice lacing on the already attractive Caracole glass. Hints of tangerine and berries in the aroma. Powerful, full on flavour. Sweet with mild spice, raisin notes and a long finish. A fitting end to my festival experience, going out on a high note.

brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Murky brown pour with a off white head. Aroma was sweet with dark fruits,raisens, nuts and some caramel.The flavor was more of the same with pleasant notes of chocolate and toffee as well as some sweet fruitiness.

Bottle at Belgobaren Sthlm. Deep ruby with dissipating head. Penetrating sweet aroma. ABV is noticeable. Really rich palate. Hours of fun.
