Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a finger thick off-white head. Caramel, toffee, mocha coffee bean, nuts, Asian spice. Acidic, smooth and light body. Alcohol is hidden. Reminds me of a good Barolo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (5435) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours a clear very dark mahogany brown body with a small tight bubbled creamy beige head that faded to a wispy film. The aroma is strongly fruity with intense notes of plum and dark cherry. Heavily malty, lots of dark caramel and a bit of alcohol. Moderate yeast influence. The flavor is less sweet than I was expecting, with lots of plum and fig fruitiness. Finished with a moderate alcohol kick and a lingering dark chocolate like note. Not quite as layered and complex as it’s classic Belgian counterparts. Still, pretty solid stuff. Full bodied and chewy with light soft carbonation and a big of cling on the back end. Interesting beer, wouldn’t pick it over a Rochefort or Westy, but worth trying.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2014
375 ml bottle purchase at Redstone Liquors back in the summer. Deep dirt brown color with fast vanishing head. Aroma is deep layers of plums, dates and Belgian candi sugar.

The flavor is much like the flavor. Lots of caramelized malts, sugar and yeast. Body is a tad on the lean side. ABV is totally masked. Tasty but real pricy for a 375 if I recall correctly. Seems like the price of every brew is raising... Anyhow if you like the style go for it!

malrubius (2185) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Trubeer, I think. Dark brown with long lasting fluffy tan head and lace, noisy pour. Spicy yeasty woody boozy aroma with hints of caramel and chocolate and some ripe cherry. Caramel candi sugar brown sugar maple syrup with subdued ripe boozy fruit subdued tobacco woody earthy bitterness with a hint of smokiness and very clean finish. Soft full mouthfeel. Can’t figure out what isn’t fucking excellent about this. Bravo!

Dark fruit, wood, booze, malt. Pours a cloudy murky dark caramel brown with debris and stuff. Thin quickly fading light tan head. Sweet and tangy. Smooth velvety mouthfeel with a hint of effervescence. Lots of flavor. Lots of bourbon. Lots of warmth in the throat. This is a wonderful beer.

ClubGonzo (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours a dark, near-black mahogany brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is raisins, port wine, dates, brown sugar and hints of husky tannins, alcohol and caramel. Taste is metallic sugary raisin tones, dates and hints of toffee, caramel and port wine. Full body, high carbonation. Not too bad, but I’ve had far better quads.
