steelhead3686 (254) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a very dark, opaque brown with a white head that stick around. Smells of herbs and resin hops. Very sweet almost candy taste. Light, fluffy body with a fizzy thin texture. A very god belgian ale. I will be revisiting this brew again.

Marcius (254) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Appearance with a dark color, cloudy liquid and good foaming. Citrus and floral aroma. On the palate, a taste of red fruit, acidity and a medium bitterness. A not so complex beer.

Zlotta (253) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, best before 30/11/2016. Clear, dark red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head, leaving heavy lacings on the glass. Pleasant aroma of raisins, blackberry, cane sugar, citrus, prunes and toffee with hints of coconut. Rich, sweetish-sourish taste of raisins, prunes, toffee, cane sugar, molasses and wood. Medium long, slightly bitter and a little warming, gently alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, smooth and creamy texture, lively carbonation. Nice sipper, not really tailor-made for spring, but still refreshing due to its light acidity. A bit of a shy aroma, but as heavy and rich in taste as expected. Good!

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2009
A nice Belgian twist on the Scotch Ale. Woody flavours are a nice aspect to this beer, and the cookie notes make it very moreish. Hides its alcohol very well. A little thin in the mouth and over spritzy.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 25, 2004
UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 Cool label. Big head, little aroma. Tastes a bit like a dunkel or Vienna? Really tasty beer, malty sweetness, bit of an astringent and nutty finish. My favorite brown.

bdunhill (251) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2012
This Belgium Brown ale is a little bitter on the innitial taste but a twist for a nice palate after! It poors dark brown with a big pillowy head. After finishing this bottle (especially if you drink the 75cl bottle) you will be ready for the pillow.

GlassBrass440 (251) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 11, 2015
Pours a hazy brown with slight tan head. No lacing. Spicy and herbal aromas of mint, anise, and clove. Flavours bring caramel, anise, corriander, vanilla, and sassafras. Very high carbonation pinches the tongue. Finish leaves a cola like feel, slightly sticky with lingering sassafras.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2012
(From notes 6 Oct, 2012) Tap. According to the beer list I picked this from, this is a Scotch-style ale. Don’t know about that. Red/brown color, compact head. Smooth mouthfeel. Aroma is some caramel and malt, a bit of alcohol. Decent beer.

lithilorn (250) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - MAY 7, 2011
Dark brown body and tan head. Sweet dried fruits and some caramel aroma. Nice taste, malty flavor with hints of fruits. A good beer.

alteregoo (249) - POLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Spory gaszing po otwarciu kapsla, piana szampańska, sycząca, opadająca do kożucha ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa brunatna, mętna. Aromat zdecydowanie przypomina klasycznego Dubbla - są suszone owoce typu figi, daktyle i rodzynki, kandyzowane mango i domowe wino głogowe. Gdzieś w tle przyprawy i miód gryczany. W smaku wytrawne, w przeciwieństwie do Dubbla nie jest słodkie, mocno winne, wyraźnie melanoidynowe (pumpernikiel, chleb razowy), kwaskowo-zbutwiałe. Nagazowanie średnie do wysokiego, alkohol wyczuwalny, rozgrzewający w przełyku, goryczka korzenno-alkoholowa. Mniej udane piwo od swojego popularniejszego jasnego brata La Chouffe. Przeszkadza mi tu nuta zbutwiałych rodzynek, skwaśniałego wina domowego i brak rodzynkowej słodyczy. No i alkohol także zbyt wysoki...
