Huhzubendah (2945) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 31, 2013
The beer is chestnut brown with a thick, khaki hued head. Lasting retention with ample lacing. The aroma offers a prominent dose of Belgian yeast right up front. Distinctly Belgian all the way. Brown bread, brown sugar, light spice, a bit of toffee and caramels. Relatively light bodied and fairly sweet. Moderate carbonation with only a touch of alcohol. A really solid beer. A nice beer to revisit now and then.

Cloudy brown color, average sized brownish head. Aroma of malts, nuts, raisins, citrus. Light sweetness, very light hoppiness. Very dry. Medium body, lively carbonation. Disappointingly average.

Fantastisk øl der gør det godt både som hygge øl men bestemt også sammen med mad. Jeg drak den til thailandsk mad, hvilket gjorde det hele godt.

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 24, 2015
0.33l pour from refrigerated bottle into tulip glad. Dark brown and opaque with a moderate tan head. Body is fairly thin. A bit watery, actually. Nose is woody. Taste is strange-- a little nutty and a little burnt, but quite a bit of a papery taste. A bit like biting in a pinecone. I am not a fan.

HippyHop (433) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Classic stuff, although a weird thing to drink on a warm June night. Prunes and plums and raisins and spice, light banana bread, nutty, roasted malt, brown sugar. Dry finish. Reminds of me Chimay, sort of halfway between red and blue. Regardless, this is good shyte.

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Marrón oscura. Bonita. Uno o dedos de espuma, ocre y poco duradero, dejando una fina película. Aroma escaso, a tierra húmeda y malta tostada. Mucho cuerpo, y gas medio. Sabor complejo con base de rica malta tostada, algo de acidez frutal y final amargo que deja aparecer el alcohol que hasta entonces estaba bien oculto. Otra buena cerveza de la casa.
