Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
33 cl. bottle. Almost mahogany with a weak head. The aroma is malty, very malty and sweet. The flavour is sweet, very sweet and it has notes of a lot of malt and nuts. IMO this is to sticky sweet, partly because it seems it doesn’t have anything else to offer, so I miss a bit of complexity and bitterness.

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2012
A reddish amber ale with a thick lacing mocha head. In aroma, a sweet caramel with light grassy notes, light fruity esters, not bad. In mouth, a nice sweet malt with smooth grassy hops, nice and smooth nutty notes, light coffee, very nice. Bieropholie import. BB 01-12.

Bov (9443) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2009 <i<bought in Strasbourg - hazy dark ruby-amber colour under a solid persistent beige foam; quite complex aroma of apple, marzipan and caramel; solid malt body and with a robust sweetness, quite sticky; very long malty and caramelish finish with notes of honey

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2007
750ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Weeks 2007). For all the malt-lovers out there. Rich ruddy brown colour, and a taste to match. Sweet caramel malts are dominant, but with enough nuttiness and spiciness to make it quite interesting and not 1-dimensional. Did I mention huge amounts of malt?

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis (thanks!). Best before date of Nov. ’05. Poured a darker mahogany color with a smaller sized tan head. Kinda of a musty and earthy aroma with leather coming out as it wamed up. Tastes of spices, light caramel, and earthy. Light alcohol in the finish.

Bottled 27/12/12. A dark amber coloured beer with a patch of whitish head. Brown fruits and yeast in the nose. Deep fruitiness in the mouth. Raisins are a strong element. Yeasty. Tasty and although sweet not overly so. Pretty good.

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
Dark red/brown in colour. Aromas are fruity, spicy and a touch musty. Good alcohol on the nose, too. Flavours are autumn fruits, toffee and sherry with warming alcohol to finish. Good stuff.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy deep coppery pour with aroma of caramel malt, fruit, some vinous notes, plus some funky cabernet notes. Tastes fruity, with caramel malt, vinous, nutty, and some cognac notes. The hops and spice appeared at mid-palate, and blended well with the flavor.
