I enjoyed this Belgium strong ale at MaHaffey’s Pub in Baltimore. This beer was a sweet, fruity, and malty beer. Nice dark color. Very easy drinking. I think I will have another.

I had this on tap at Chapel Hill Wine Bar with Jonathan3584 and we were pleased to have it available in North Carolina, regardless of how it tastes. A pleasant departure from Flying Dog’s Pale Ale, which we normally drink at the Wine Bar.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2005 Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a mellowed head. Fairy sweet aroma, like dates or maybe even figs. Malty fruity sweet flavors prevail, and laoded with spices and some peppery alcohol.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2006 A very nice beer which makes me think of dark bread and wine.The aroma is distinctively mellow. Malt, dried fruit, tobaccolike aroma. Sweet and rather bitter for a Belgian at 8% ABV.

jzzbassman (1523) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Poured dark brown with a tiny head and lacing. The aroma is sweet and reminiscent of sugar cookies. Flavor is not tremendously complex, but the malt flavor is enjoyably malty, with a sweet nutty finish.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2005
UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 A Mes rate: Draught from Lowlander. YUM! Dramtically better draught than in bottles. Nice semi-translucent mahogany colour. Decent tan head that lasts pretty well. Heavy in the lace department. Sweet coffee ice cream nose. Flavour is vanilla, chocolate, cherries, almonds and coffee. A little flat and lifeless in the palate but it will do. The finish is great while it lasts. A quick sugary swish round the mouth and then slightly bitter but it’s all over a little too suddenly. Complex and slightly unusual dubbel. Wish the bottle tasted this good.

OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2005
On tap and in the bottle.... Dark dark mud like appearance. Huge thick head..... Thick rich taste that finishes just right. This is second to the Maredsous 10.

Pours brown with thin tan head. Mild aroma of apricot and vanilla. Medium pallate with lots of carbonation bite. A bit sour and tart. Sweet fruity flavors. Clean finish. Decent stuff.

arjoseph (640) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2005
On tap into Shaker glass, Beer Sellar, Nashville TN. Clear ruby orange in the glass with a creamy yellow tan head, uneven racing, ok lacing. Malty like a mofo. Chewy, nutty, banana and sourdough bread flavor; bread, yeast and macadamia nut smell and flavor. It’s got some golden raisin going on too, with some grape underneath. Medium to full bodied. Rich and complex. Dope.

Dark brown, very big foamy head, yeasty, fruity of dates and raisins, dark roasted malt, molasses follows through on a medium-bodied palate with coffee, chocolate, fruity flavors of dates, raisins with a touch of acidity and dark roasted malt in a warmth alcoholic soft bitterness finish.
