Goodgrief (1885) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 6, 2007
I don’t know much about Belgians too say too much. I liked it...it wasn’t overpowering and had a nice hop/malt balance. I’d have this again, but I wouldn’t go out looking for it. It was ridiculously, expensive, though...so that effects my rating (even if it shouldn’t).

Nice dark but slightly opaque brown, lively in the glass. Strong sweet caramel on the nose leading nicely onto rich caramel in the mouth, dark chocolate, rich fruit

From bottle (chilled) Jazz Cellar, Edinburgh. Similar to Old Peculiar but thicker, heartier... tasting like it looks. More sweet than bitter. Carmel.

Iguanaman (11) - Seneca, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Very pleasant with no aftertaste. The beer was almost sweet. The draft beer created a tingly sensation. I’m not a major drink enthusiast but this kind of beer is making me one.
