Crit (3561) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
Hardly burgundy, a very definite brown with short tan head. Good fruity carmel nose. Complex flavor of carmel, whiskey, and winey astringent finish Being objective... A quality beer, but I don't like it at all

Much aroma of sweet malty caramel. Huge body with some hints of acidy freshness. Oh, and cheers Haukur for this and my few last ratings!

haukur (1432) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 21, 2004
A beautiful appearance, essential dubbel looks. Aroma is fruity with hints of malt, raisins, nuts and candy. That raisin feel hits you on the tongue, with hops and yeast. Some sweet caramel also, very well masked, a fantastic dubbel.

color is caramelly amber with a thin tan head. some alcohol in the nose, a floral quality, brown sugar and a little raisin. flavor also has some alcohol, some woodiness, a little apple and pear, and a wheaty finish. more of an alcohol presence than i expected at 8.5%

JorisPPattyn (8440) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2004
(Cave-aged 2001 version) Dark red beer; little white head. Enormous oxidation jumps out in the nose, 'biscuit', but way over the top as in the discards of pastry-making. Taste is completely madeirised - in 2 years? After the Hennepin, that clinches it: Ommegang beers are just too light to age gracefully. They just oxidate. Slick, medium bodied mouthfeel. One disappointment more from Ommegang. They ought to raise their price - AND their quality.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Beautiful light mahoany color with an off-white head. Sweet malt, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruit, and yeast aroma. Very sweet flavors of plum, cherry, malt, and yeast. Very highly carbonated. Slightly dry finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Excellant looking cherry color brewskie. Sweet sugary nose...maybe molasses. Crazy flavor combinations going on here. I taste toffee, chocolate, carmel, and abit of vanilla. I dig this sweet juice.

very deep burgandy color, almost opaque with a nice creamy tan head...smells of carmel and honey, quite sweet, very complex flavor...definitely taste the alcohol as well as the carmel and a woody flavor from the aroma...anise also, very smooth going down and a bit dry on the finish...good experience for my first ever belgian strong
