DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 In its bullet-shaped, wooden-seated glass tumbler quite the most ornately rocky, sculptured head of caramel suds I’ve yet seen. Astonishing. You could float a Euro coin on that. The nose oozes Flemish Brown dankness, musty caves, malt vinegar, black bean sauce and well-weathered timber. Silky, roastily bitter and dryly yeasty. Breadiness and licorice. A restrained waft of booze. But most of all that dank and mysterious edge of aged sourness (Grottenbier?). Spectacularly conditioned and tasty Strong Ale.

On tap at Sharp Edge Creekhouse-good reccomendation mtoast! Pour was a beautiful dark brown/cherry with a 2 finger off white head that laced the whole glass. Tastes like a dubbel with more of a tangy yeast character. Dark fruits float in and out and has a nice thick finish. Very nice.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
Funky, murky brown beer with a good-sized, sizzling tan head. Aroma is largely apple cider, with a good deal of oak, some chocolate. Flavor is fairly tart, with some chocolate, cider, with the tartness lingering a bit too long on the palate.

pintocb (648) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2007
On tap at the brick store. Dark brown and red with a creamy off white head. I can smell plums, apples and some banana in the nose. Sweet at first with a little alcohol bite. The finish is kind of spicy and not much bitterness. Nice beer.

oh6gdx (22632) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2007
Bottled (thanks ha1ag!). Murky dark brown colour with huge fluffy head. Aroma is malts, alcohol, yeast and earth. Flavour is caramel, malts, yeast and earth in a very nice balance. Some spicyness in aftertaste along with some perfumeness and caramel.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Dovetail. Ruby amber in colour with a dense, overflowing head despite a careful pour. Earthy, malty aroma. Salty taste with orange, ginger and mild spices. Pleasant, long finish. Stunning example of a strong Belgian ale.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours with a substantial fluffy head over a hazy, burnt umber body; aromas include flowery hops, pear and peaches; initially, pretty malty with burnt toffee, caramel and flavorful tangy hops supporting a somewhat viscous, creamy body. Nice balance here, and not your typical Belgian. It certainly has a yeasty, musty and grassy-hay hop finish. Though it’s no hop monster, it’s got nice lupilinous character for a Belgian; overall, very flavorful.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 15, 2007
750ml, this bottle is gorgeous. A light beige head sits atop a murky caramel brown colored body. Massive carbonation doesn’t budge, in fact it builds from a solitary point on one side of the glass. The first sniff brings must and moldy cardboard. The second adds the obligatory caramel malt along with anise, muffled floral hops, fruit basket and burnt sugar. Flavor is more of the same, this portion of the quaff proving much sweeter. Additions include a slight tart edge, candy caramel apples and toffee. Tastes old but really hard to tell because of the great head and beautiful lacing, I think it’s just a musty style strong ale, certainly not a bock. The finish is long and balanced, neither too sweet nor too dry. Medium bodied, excellent mouthfeel, great palate really. Drab.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Dark red/brown. Soda like tan cap - loudly fizzy and short lived. Sour - oxidized or infected or intentional - hard to tell. Also lots of caramel and some earth. Subtle spicy yeast. Body is thin, almost watery, with light carbonation. Strange brew.
