prawlie (1095) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
From Tijl en Nele in Damme. Served in a ceramic pot, a good creamy head over a dark beer. Spiced, caramel, delicious and smooth. Light spiced aroma. Good stuff.

Parket (568) - Bruges, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2011
bottle @ dams bierfestival, dark brown colour with foamy white head. Smell: some caramel, dark fruit notes. Taste: just great hidden the relative high alcohol percent, caramel, plums, sometimes some strange malts, coffee. Nice one, better then expected for a ’huyghe’ beer!

diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle Deep brown, clear body. Creamy-rocky, off-white, lightly brown head. Aroma of malts: caramel and hints of stronger ones, alcohol, yeast, ... Lightly bitter, lightly sweet. Weak mouthfeel, watery and also dry finish.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Medium brown, hazy with some settled yeast. Not sure how old this bottle was. Very good thoough. Smooth and sweetly malted, with tones of spice, licorice, and fruits. Just a light twinge of sour to round it off. I wish I could find this in the US.

JorisPPattyn (7809) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 (Quite aged 75cl sample) Dark red brown, yeast in suspension; no more head. Nutty, spicy, rich old portwine nose, vinous as in cold brännvin glögg. Light-spicey, very vinous beer. An old Flemish brown (which is at odds with the young beer, which is all dark malts, spicey, even a tad harsh but nowhere sourish). Lots of esters in this beer. Palate is VERY much portwine-like. Light to medium bodied, bit watery texture, no doubt due to ageing. Faint oily mouthfeel. The beer has benefitted enormously from lagering more than half a decade in my cellar. Turned out a beautiful Flemish "red". The spices are unidentifyable. "Pater van Damme" has been with us for the longest time now - it still exists! - and it is still shrouded in mystery. Alledgedly, the brewery is on the first floor of the (only) shop were one can buy it. Nobody has ever seen this brewery, though many have asked so. When young, the beer oozes a rather severe, good homebrew, with lots of spices. One of the more plausible tales is that the beer is bought in, in (small) bulk, and further blended with a homemade spiced liqueurdrink. But, as long as nobody really knows the truth, and the beer remains available, I have to classify it here, under its own "brewery"name. I was quite surprised it wasn’t yet in the database. After many years of mystifying, the people in Damme have finally admitted their beer is brewed in Melle.
