Lunkie (1398) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2004
Unplesant aroma dark golden brown colour with light weak flavour and fizzy palate. The beer you have when you dont want to drink beer.

TheBeerGod (5177) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Cork says 3/02. Possibly a two year old bottle. Best by date is 21 03 05. Deep red. Spalshes of brown. Tall tan head. Aroma has sweetened malt, some spice and some smoky hints. The taste is almost the opposite of the aroma. Fruity, and sugary with rough spice notes and hints of cocoa or chocolate. Strongly carbonated body and a slightly bitter finish. A little disappointing, to be honest, but not too bad.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2004
750 ml bottle, BBD in 2003, so probably a 3 YO or so bottle, maybe more? The last bottle at the post TAP NY tasting. Dark ruby, very chocolaty and malty in the nose; quite sweet, heavily carbonated...sour and yeasty with some sour beer character. Fine, not spectacular.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2004
A very complex and interesting beer... somewhere between a Dubbel and an Abt/Quadrupel in strength (can't call it a Tripel because it is very dark). Lots of dark fruit, rich caramel, yeasty spiciness. Somewhat bitter finish, lots of alcohol fumes

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2004
A beautiful colour and head formation when poured, with the lacing lasting all the way down the trappist glass. There is a typical plummy nose and good mouthfilling experience of fruit and malt in the taste. The slight bitterness imparted by both malt and hops is pleasant. The finish is dry and not one that gives an indication of its ABV.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2004
quit a dark body with nice foam, bitter flavours all over the place in the nose in the palate,and a little to burned taste for me

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2004
Nice ruby brown body with a beautiful fluffy white head and nice brewers lacing. Aroma is sweetly alcoholic, as is the flavour. Bits of dark fruits and malt in the body. This is a nice beer that suffers from the distracting alcoholic notes.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 4, 2004
Tap: Pours a beautiful brown with a great beije head. A nose of alcohol and candi sugar. Amazing spice flavors with a nice sweet aftertaste. Just amazing!

This beer is actually on tap at the Mud Lounge, a great little bar in Springfield, Mo. It was "martini night" when I was there, but they apparently have a "belgian night" on the weekends when belgian styles are half off. Anyway, this is a blissful concoction, rich and lovely with malts that explode in many directions and a really intriguing old hay in the barn edge to the aroma. I liked the depth and richness exhibited: drak fruits and sugars and enough bittering balance. Yumm.

sloth (2452) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2004
Large light brown head, lasting with a good sticky lace. Gorgeous beer! Clear mahogany color.Nose is lacking, hints of malt and cola. Medium body. Clean malt flavors, dark fruit, lightly spicey. Finish is dry and fruity.
