RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
750ml bottle that I picked up in Belgium, with a best before 2008. Pours a cloudy, red tinged, dark brown with a two finger head that fades quickly to a thick cap, leaving behind a thick sheeting of lace behind. Smell; very nice dark fruit aromas with plums, dates and maybe a little raisins. There’s also some nice caramel, and toffee notes, and I’m also piking up a little coffee in here as well. Taste; the toffee and caramel are very evident in the flavor with the dark fruits with plums, dates and raisins filling out the middle. The finish has a very rich chocolate presence with a little bit of some coffee notes in there, and touches of yeast. This has a very unique flavor profile, that I’m really liking tonight. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; the mouthfeel is medium bodied with a very smooth but active carbonation, and the drinkability is just great. I’m having a hard time putting down my glass.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Aroma of caramel. Pours a dark brown with a fading head. Very smooth and carbonted and pleasant; somewhat heavy on the throat though. This is an interesting ale that I don’t know how to label. It aint a scotch ale, a brown ale or an abbey, but it’s definetly belgium; and that’s a good thing.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a nice clear dark copper color, with a thick foamy tan head. Nice lacing. Very sweet and fruity aroma. Malty flavor, with fruit, yeast, and sweet bread. The flavor is good, but not as bold as the aroma suggests. Medium to full body, abundantly, yet softly, carbonated. A little bit of anise and alcohol in the finish - something like a mild zing of ouzo.

Rune (10000) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2007
750ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen in Dec.05 and shared with CinnamonGirl and Finn at a New Year’s party in Tromsø last Saturday. Dark amber body with a fading head. Earthy, rather smoky aroma. Rounded taste of spicy sweetness and dark fruits supported by winelike notes towards the end (06.01.2007).

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 3, 2007
Bottled. A deep reddish brown beer, with a rocky and creamy light brown head. Fruity complex aroma. The flavour is sweet malty, with some vinous and woody notes. The bitterness is very low, but enough to balance this beer. The body is quite powerful and the aftertaste is quite long. A great beer.

WeeHeavySD (3362) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Rating 200. 750ml bottle. Pours cloudy brown with a small puffy tan head. The nose is malty and slightly sweet. The taste is really right on. It is sweet, malty and tangy with bits of caramel and a variety of malt flavors. Delicious.
