yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2007
75 cL bottle, thanks to Bierkönig. Pours hazy and deep brown with a lacing off-white head. Aroma is dried fruity and malty. Flavour is a blend of malty sweetness and something beyond this (undefineable malty/herbal note). Slight herbal note with a minor acidity into the finish, a quite dry finish.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of vegetables and fruit. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of berries and wood, the berries giving it a slight acidic edge, leading to a dry finish.

oh6gdx (20322) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2009
Bottled (Thanks stoutlover72!). Hazy amber colour, not much head. Aroma is raisins, alcohol, yeast, mild fudge and some liquorice and herbs. Flavour is quite much the same along with quite much grassy notes. A rather nice Belgian Strong Ale.

madmitch76 (15073) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2009
29th August 2008. Little brother to ’Judgement Day’. Opaque brwon beer. Rich with a well blended fruitiness. Warming alcohlic finish but still feels like a beer where as it’s big brother borders in to Madeira territory. Very drinkable.

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
Corked bottle, vintage 2008, 1 year old
Dark color, almost black; medium head, reducing fast. The aroma is not impressive, instead there is a light sourness, and very light spices. It has a good body structure, with a rich chocolate flavor; the spices are subdued (cinnamon? oranges...), but more evident than in the aroma; in the end it indulges too much on the roasted malts, and the alcohol burns a bit too much. Powerful, a bit chaotic, not Belgian.
