Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
Bottle. Musty yeast, pear, tropical fruit and toast aromas with occasional solventy fumes. Sweet flavour with a faint caramelised roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel variable but a bit thin in places. Varies from mouthful to mouthful. Inviting aroma but the rest is lacking.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2004
From a bottle shipped from Europe. Age and handling unknown. Nice raisin fruitiness and sparkly mouthfeel. Great reddish brown color with tan head. Noticably alcoholic. Very smooth and enjoyable.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Beer pours (in flute glass) a dark reddish-brown liquid with a small amount of caramel colored head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film. Aroma is of whiskey, sweet, and hops. Flavor is of whiskey, straw, grass, and overall watery, and weak. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2004
On tap at the Half Moon Tavern in Kennett Square, PA. Poured a dark reddish brown, with a nice white head. Aroma was sweet. Mouthfeel a bit thin. Brown sugar, nuts, and raisins on the tongue. However, this beer lacks complexity. It's rather boring. It really reminded me of a brown ale.

excellent, dark brown and red. very sweet with raisin aroma. can taste the alcohol a bit, but very easy drinking, malty and syrupy.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2006 (Bottled, re-rate, was 6-5-7-4-15=3.7) Very beautiful dark, clear and deep red color (when light shining through) with a mostly diminishing, clearly tanned head. Sweetish, roasted-malty, slightly stuffy aroma with a hint of vanilla and maybe metal. Sweetish, roasted-malty, cardboardy and dull flavor with brown syrup. Sweet, oily and sticky finish. Medium-bodied, quite thin and foamy-carbonated, syrupy palate. Not nearly as good as I remembered it - or maybe it’s gone worse. Something between a roasty Belgian stout and an amber ale. A quite boring dubbel with all the character removed.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2004 A nice dark beer that has a slightly spicy aroma. I like this beer a lot, the local belgian beer cafes have it on tap and it fills the bill nicely there as a first or last beer. The raisin aftertaste makes for a nice relaxing beer. At home I guess I prefer the more complex Radiuse but a dark sweet beer will always have a friend in me.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004
Our final beer in the excellent La Fleur en Papier Dore bar in Brussels, following on from the De Neve Kriek (q.v.). Dark brown in colour (not surprisingly). Sweetness, malt and fruit in equal measure. Not really my favourite style, and bit cloying after a while, but OK. Bottled, September 2003.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2004
(4 Jan 04) An almost black liqour but clear with a red hue when held up to the light. Large off-white head that lasts well and has a good lacing. It has a heavy toasted malt nose with notes of molasses and a slight iron edge. The malt is moderate in the body and tapers out quickly in the light bitter finish. This beer fills the mouth well and has a nice syrupy texture and soft bead.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Kinda bland, biscuity, peachy, with loads of dust and a somewhat sticky finish.Great lacing, but overall, blah.
