ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2003
Dark brown with a big head. Spicy, musty and roasty aroma with some bitterness. Quite sweet taste, chocolate, dark malt, spices, nuts and some fruity notes of raisins and pear. No hops noticed.

SecretSquirrel (20) - Sheffield, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2003
Nice but uncomplicated. The lack of stimulation to the tastebuds lets it down a little, but strong and pleasant enough to enjoy. Whether I choose to drink it depends on the alternatives my free house has to offer.

Dark brown color, with some red reflex; medium sized creamy head. Average malt and caramel aroma, as well for the flavor; medium low bitterness. Simple but not bad.

2003-06-23, bottle, 4-4-6-3-12=29
Dark amber, simple malt aroma. Medium strength body, well structured, light malt, sweet caramel; ending alcohol touch. Quite boring Dubbel.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2003
Nice light brown head. Dark body. Aroma; sweet, overripe apple, dough. Sweet taste - gentle and simple but nice - followed by a little bitter-dry finish.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Draught. Faint sweet malt aroma with decent head. Warm malt and carmel flavors, slightly sweet with yeast undertones. Nice with a steak.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2003
Draught: Almost no aroma - slight sour scent. Appearance is very nice in the glass - black with light tan coloured head. Flavour was weak - no bold flavours anywhere. Very watery. Kept trying to pick up on something interesting, but nothing happening here.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Draught Thick foamy chocalate tinged head. This had some deep ripe fruit tones in it, but I thought they were lost quickly. Tastes much better as it warms up and the sweetness does not take over completely. Also had some cookie/honey taste in it, not a very good description, but there was a good body to it. Needs much more complexity though. Problems with carbonation even on draught.
