muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 31, 2005
10-oz glass at Hopleaf in Chicago. Dark mahogany with a lasting touch of creamy head...rich, deep malty nose with lots of sweet caramel and plum...body more plummy, slightly peppery-alcoholic (nicely warming, not harsh), moderately sweet and lightly yeasty-musty. Really nice, just a solid simple pleasant-drinking beer to go with the excellent rustic rabbit I was eating.

DerWeg (1493) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
A bit of dark sugary malt presence, long bitter hops, and decent body... overall not that bad, far better than most universally available pub choices.

ohitsbrad (8) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 13 November 2005 on tap at Belgian Beer Café, Perth: Near black in appearance, although not opaque, creamy brown tinged head, very good rings of lacing. Quite a bitter taste with roasted type flavours of coffee, brown sugar, licorice and light spices. Also a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel was a little powdery and even thin. Overall a decent beer, but not particularly a favourite of mine.

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2005
75 cl bottle, ’bbe’ April 06. Brown with a chestnut hue, no turbidity, light sparkle, small but persistent beige head giving some lacing. Faint malty aroma with roasted malt and caramel; reminds of a coffee surrogate, too. Some heavy herbal smell is also present, like of partially dried flowers and leaves. Overwhelmingly sweet taste with caramelised malt and little complexity; rough, almost pungent hop bitterness lingering in the aftertaste. Not very convincing body, some carbonation, light etheric mouthfeel.

greg5783 (10) - Turvey, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2005
Very deep rich aromas. It seemed less gassy than the blonde and tasted rich although quite bitter with a pleasant aftertaste.

Very subdued aromas of molasses-berries-spice with a slight sweet note.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2005
Fair and decent belgian abbey. As the description says, deep brown colour and sweet and fruity aroma. It’s got a nice malty touch.
