Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
On tap at Ste-Elizabeth (Montréal). Dark brown body with perfect foamy, large and lasting off-white head. Good malty aroma with various hints of toffee, bread and fruits. Alcohol is well hidden. Carbonation is soft, and taste is sweet and fruity. Average final with a warming touch. Very enjoyable beer.

Brown, fizzy tan head. Aroma is yeasty. Flavour is nutty. Water: lacks complexity, is quite boring for what one expects of the style. Not bad though. Draught.

This is a Ok Abbey Dubbel. Sweet, malty, and light flavors. Finishes dry, crisp, and clean.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2004
Sampled in a Zeller’s attempt at a Trappist glass. A rich dark colour with a long lasting dirty-snow-coloured head. Aroma of some N/A lager. Very thick, chewy palate. It has a woody taste, with more flavours apparent as it warmed. Apples, maybe, spices, berries and cherries of the forest. (reverse those last two). A very strong beer, had my head swimming (though I hadn’t eaten in 6 hours). Wouldn’t order especially, but wouldn’t shy away from it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2004
Dark red, nice big light brown head. Aroma very fruity, soma banana and also apple can be noticed. Flavor is strongly fruity with convenient and cutting hops. Very creamy and full bodied mouthfeel. Leaves nicely yeasty and banana aftertaste in mouth. Nice and enjoyable beer.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Hybrid rating: draft at the Abbaye and draft at Bieres et Compangne in MTL. Absolutely beautiful pour in MTL. Thick long lasting head; 2mm lace evenly coats the glass when finished. Flavor and palate not as remarkable as I remembered, nevertheless, thoroughly enjoyable.

fasteddieIX (55) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2004
An all-around great beer. Pours a dark, thick brown with a sizable tannish head. A malty aroma is balanced with a nice blend of spice (my comrade and I couldn’t single out any specific kind), both of which are prevalent in the flavor, along with maple, tannin, and berry fruit. Thick-bodied, ideally for the colder months, but, as we found, it can also be enjoyed during the summer. Good stuff.

Gorbalev (2917) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2004
Bottle. Deep red/brown pour, decent sized tan head (long lasting). Sweet aroma with spiciness. Very malty taste with a little kick of spices and perhaps some slight fruit/berry hints as well. Kind of thin and syrupy, but not enough to ruin what is otherwise a pretty decent beer. I prefer this to the blonde.
