beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2006
(05.20.06) On tap at Firkinís, Libertyville, IL. Poured clear dark brown with giant white head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied ale with moderate malt sweetness and fruity (plum?), licorice, and toffee flavors. Finishes with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. A good, drinkable, malty beer.

larsga (6626) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2006
Beige big lasting head. Deep dark red body. Vague sweet roasted caramel aroma. Sweet caramel taste with some roasted almonds. Chocolate notes. Smooth, faintly chewy mouthfeel. Aftertaste is bitter caramel. Almond bitterness lingers. Not the most complex brune, but nice. (0.33l bottle.)

Dedollewaitor (14490) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2006
On tap at Carlsens "skvatter" (Odense): brown abbey ale with fine white head. Creamy texture- filling mouthfull. Nutty and malty aroma. Medium carbonated. Overall pleasant and better than the "blonde" if it is comparable!

Canuckistani (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 Aroma difficult to really place; Iím going to say a bit caramelly, with roasty, earthy touches. Alcohol is noticeable, but not too strong. Great Palate! Full body, creamy, lively carbonation, slightly bitter, almost metallic aftertaste, but the metallica part is probably due to the foil around the bottle, from which I was drinking, lacking proper glassware

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 2, 2006
330 ml bottle, from LCBO Queens Quay in Toronto. Pours medium reddish brown and clear with a large foamy beige head that diminishes to a thin layer, but left nice lacing. Aroma of sweet dark molasses bread, roasted nuts, dark fruits and light floral notes. Flavor is very sweet, rich with figs, yeast and spice, sweet herbs and ripe bananas, bit of a bitter bite in the finish - good but not quite balanced enough to be very good or great for me. Medium to full body and smooth, tickling carbonation.

Boy, this one was fantastic. Nice brown colored ale with a mild Belgian style sweetness (and also some bitterness). Some very low levels of vinegar in the aroma and flavor, but not to that of a typical flemish sour. Head was solid, but the lacing maintained itself throughout the drink. Iíll get another one of these whenever I get the opportunity. Edit: My third tasting of this on draft in Canada resulted in a carboard type after taste. Not sure if that is typical for the Canadian version (if there is even such thing) or just the freshness of that keg. Iíd drop my ratings if that happened again. But donít worry (yet another update), it hasnít happened again, many times a good deal in the US at The Half Moon in Kennett, PA!
