Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 28, 2003
Interesting but rather one dimensional: "bruin" color, medium thick head, aroma of rare spices and chocolate (the most interesting thing in this beer), standard sweetish palate.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2003 I like the Leffe family. This one is a good coppery coloured beer with a billowy head. The chocolatey malty nose is a fine introduction to the creamy mouthfeel. It is full on the back palate with a degree of lingering sweetness. Good body and a fine alcohol presence.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Deep brown ale with a big generous white head that accompanies you until the end. Spicy chocolate and vanilla aromas. The mouthfeel is full, creamy. Very sweet in mouth, but the spices keep the balance up. Not complex for an abbey, but if we forget the category and just enjoy it, it remains a good dessert.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Some spicy aromas to start with-roast malt and chocolate stand out. The flavors are rich, with warming chocolate malts that are quite bitter with little residual sweetness. The aftertaste is lingering, with more dark chocolate and roast malt. Maybe not a true Abbey, but good nonetheless.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2003
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Huge light brownish head with long lasting. Aroma is spicy and malty. Some fruity accents. Flavour is light sweet and malty. Pleasantly spiced and some notes of fruits. A little light and uninteresting in the end.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Deep reddish brown color, nice tan head. Yeast and sweet malt aroma. Same in flavor. Good beer.

Oct 2000 - Dark brown ale with a nice head. Spices were nicely balanced and not overpowering.

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.
