Jerre (2365) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2013
Tasted @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival Zwevegem 15.08.2011. Hazy redbrown color, with light beige head. Aroma: fruits, hops. Full body. Taste: caramel, bit sweet, fruits, hops, not balanced. (to much different hops)

Abio (1517) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2012
Fruit and earthy yeast at the smell, combined in a weird way, a bit unnatural and chemical. Taste is not much better, earthy with some dark fruits and caramel that gets trough. Slightly metallic besides some hops. Should be good for about a year longer. Medium biterness, but not what I was hoping for.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2012
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. IPA? Wow.. Clear deep ruby amber colour, creamy off white head. Aroma is very sweet, candy, light hoppy, caramel, toasted malts. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, cotton candy, bitter hoppy finish with a grainy touch. Light to medium bodied. Not bad, but not an IPA by far.

IluvatarMilan (231) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Bottle @ Frape. Completely un-IPA like colour, deep ruby red to purple. Like wine with a small whit head. Underwhelming nose, bit soapy, soft and off-key. Taste is surprisingly goog and equally unlike an IPA. Very, very spicy, berries, currant. Aftertaste is good, but quickly dissappearing. Medium bitterness and mouthfeel.

omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2012
Bottled at Pressklubban, Stockholm. Hazy mahogany colour, fairly rich head. Fruity nose with black currant and coffee. Mid sweet with medium-full body and soft mouthfeel. Nutty with some coffee, covered by a generous blanket of floral black currant hops.some dark chocolate comes through in the long, bitter finish

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark brown color, creamy beige head that settles quickly. Aroma of caramel and nuts. Taste is sweet caramel with a toasty and nutty edge. Not bad.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Dark mahogany colored pour. Big, almost white head that fades quickly but leaves a bit of lacing behind. Big malty aroma. Taste of malt and caramel. A little bitterness. Sweet. Not too shabby. Much better than I would have thought from the appearance.

vickey9 (412) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2011
Dark brown ale, creamy head. Honey, herbs and roasted malt in nose. Bitter taste, oily body, fine carbonation. Tincture and liquorice on palate. Long dry & bitter aftertaste. B@BF.

BoBoChamp (5104) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2011
33cl, by Hugel (at Gulden Spoor), new exclusive brew Anno 2011, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex brew, bitter/fruity and slightly spicy/sweet, balanced, cloudy, small head, good brew

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2011
Small, tan head, fast gone over muddy cola-coloured beer, orange sheen. Bananaester, near a German Weizen, bubble gum. Dry wood, but still mixed with banana (even overripe banana). Fuselalcohols, for sure. Medium bodied at least, quite carbonated. Chocolate and non-sweet liquorice flavours in the aftertaste. Not bad at all. The nose is unsettling for a Belgian beer, let alone for something aimed at IPA...
