duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle. A sweet brune, along the lines of Leffe, which isn’t a good start. Brown sugar, caramel, yeasty. Quite sweet and a little sticky. Very broing.

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2006
Bottled, alc. 6.5%. Dark brown, not much head. Fruity, sweetish aroma, prunes dominate. Fruity, but metallic flavor, quite "bulk dubbel" feeling here. Aftertaste is also quite metallic. Misses yeast twist there (none in the bottom).

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2006
Bottled - Beer Circus - Croydon. A dark brown coloured beer with a ruby hue and a very slight tan coloured head. I wasn’t impressed with any of the three new beers in this range bu this was far and away the worst. The aroma is very very sweet. It also smelled of nasty beer soaked brown bread. The taste is also too sweet with notes of vomit amidst the sugary cakey palate. Not very good at all and a shame that it shares a name with such good beers as there are in the Liefmans range.

At Belgian Beer Weekend 2005, Brussels, Belgium
Ruby, brown body. Fully diminishing, lightly brown head with a excellent lace. Nose of molasses. Lightly bitter initial flavour. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish.

JorisPPattyn (9395) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2005
Draught Hazy amber-brown; thick amber-brown head, like whipped cream, leaving lace like with nitrokeg. Woody, liquorice, dark candi sugar, bit gassy nose. Neutral to tart taste, characterised by some wood and a bit of brown candi sugar getting sweeter like rosewater. Bit sugar slickness, creamy (nitro?...), rather well-bodied. Both gratifying and disappointing. Good because it is not overly sweet and has some woody touch. Disappointing because it is mainly sweet-perfumed and has little to do with Liefmans. Seems to hesitate between tradition and commercialism.
