JonMoore (2019) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown with a large light beige head. Caramel, malt yeast and fruit in the aroma. Quite an effervescent, medium to full mouthfeel. Malty, caramel taste with raisin and some spices at the finish. Well hid alcohol until the strong and late warming. Quite highly carbonated which downgrades the mouthfeel a bit. Very good.

Reddish brown body. Champagne head. Nose was fruity, malty, raisins, spices. Lively carbonation tickled the palate. Flavor was sweet and clean and crisp that ended in a nice, warm alcohol glow.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2009 Bottled. Brown beer with a beige head. Sweet and malty aroma. Warming, sweet and malty. Rating: 6-3-7-3-15-3.4. 051028

Bottle, 33cl. It’s a more or less clear beer, dark amber body topped by a beige, finger-thick head. Typical Belgo-sweet sugary nose with a good dash of alcohol and dried fruits. There’s roasted malts in there as well as a spiced note it seems. Sweet, malty flavor with dried fruits and roasted malts. A good alcohol warmth plays with my mouth and throat, and some bitterness lingers. Full-bodied and well carbonated. The finish is lasting and maybe a bit warm for this beer, but overall I really enjoy it. Well worth a revisit or two. 091102

Draugt, at Delirium. Red brown with light browne head, mostly diminishing, modest lacings. Aroma moderate malty (spicy). Flavor moderate sweet, light bitter/acidic. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonated, the alcohol is felt.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2005
What a nice, warming brew. Although I’m a confirmed hophead, I enjoy a good Scotch ale, and this is an interesting Belgian twist on the style. It’s got a clear, deep nutty brown body with a tall, rocky beige head. The aroma is a rich, slightly smokey, somewhat nutty malt, a modestly caramel sweet malt. The body is thick and syrupy, delivering a sweet, smokey malt flavor that slides down way too easily. The finish is sweet and warm, although the sturdy abv doesn’t truly makes its presence known until it’s well into your system. Very, very nice.

One of my favorite dubbels. Pours with a nice thick head and tastes great. Ages nicely too.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 NIce beer, but a little too strong and without sense soetimes, can be described as a good beer but it was too alcoholic. The foam is good, of course.

blankboy (6583) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby-brown with a large light-brown head. Fairly mild aroma of malt, pepper, alcohol, sugar and dark fruit. Flavour follows the aroma. Looks carbonated but doesn’t taste it -- it tasted flat and watery. Dissapointing, I much preferred La Chouffe -- maybe a bad bottle?

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2005
750 ml bottle purchased from BevMo. Pours walnut color with a creamy beige head that lasts well. Interesting this combination of Scotch and Belgian styles. Aroma is quite sweet, lots of dark fruits, hints of maple, molasses and spicy yeastiness. Flavor is also sweet, dark fruity malts, molasses, tea, lavendar and floral notes. Medium to full body, smooth on the tongue with gentle carbonation. Quite nice.
