Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 10, 2008
July 2007 - Dark brown chestnut pour with moderate head and lacing. Musty aroma, not altogether pleasant, but there. Sweet, bordering on overly so. Lots of scottish ale type sticky, really sweet smokey malts, with a syrupy mouthfeel with a kind of tinny aftertaste that sort of detracted a bit. Maybe it was a spice, I don’t know. Mild spicing. Good, but not great.

nuplastikk (5794) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2008
750ml bottle. 2006 edition sampled in March 2008. Very murky reddish-brown color. Still retains a good head on it, perhaps not as over the top as a fresh bottle. Highly reminiscent of a Barleywine, but with a more elegant herbal and spice finish. Sweet and full bodied, with a nice warming finish. Hardcore.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2008 2007 Bottle 75 cl. Pours a reddish brown colour with a tan head. Very malty on the nose, with spices, golden syrup and orange flavoured caramel. Rather sweet taste. Malty with yeast, spices, some orange and dried fruits. The alcohol is warmning. The finish is yeasty.

2007. Pours a cloudy port colour. Soapy aroma with some patchouli. Rather bland, on the whole.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Drier compared to the McChouffe. Dried spices with a slightly citrusy finish. You feels just a touch of the 10% ABV on the finish.

Nice chouffe, comedy for a 14 year old kid. Which I had to say because I am one. Very impressed. A decent balance of flavours that were present without being dominating. And stronger than womens love for tissues. Pretty blood good i say.

bottle, brown with good head. Fruit, brown sugar, spice, plum. Good balance and finish. highly carbonated, hides the alcohol well.

2006 Vintage - What an amazingly simple, yet tasty beer. Okay, maybe simple is the right word. But it’s not barrel aged, or a "super premium" beer. Just a well made, highly enjoyable Belgian beer.

The beer pours out a dark, cloudy brownish/purple color with a nice two-finger thick light tan head. A mesmerizing aroma butter, plums and mashed raisins. Vanilla and overripe bananas also show up. Where’s the 10% alcohol? Mouthfeel is crazy smooth. None of that overly harsh carbonation I find in some Beligain beers. Smooth as silk here. Flavors are a tongue-warp to try and get them all. Dark fruits like dates, rasins and plums abound. Caramel, chocolate dipped oranges, oak and various spices play thru. Highly recommended.
