Pours a clear brown color with a very thick tan head. Aroma of burned caramel and malt. The flavor is more complex than the aroma, the burned caramel and toasted malt are still there and they are joined by a pleasant fruity presence (raisins, plums, maybe figs), sweetness lingers in the end. The body is light with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. I didnít know what to expect from this beer but I like it.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2008
In short: A sweet fruity roasted Belgian dark ale. A lot of stuff thrown in. Pleasant but unfocussed.
How: Bottle 330ml, probably around 6 months old
The look: Opaque brown body with a large beige head
In long: Timid nose of earthy caramel. Extra yeasty, fruity esters are all over the place (name one fruit itís there), very dusty/rusty, burnt caramel, brown sugar and pleasant nutty notes. Taste has a lot to offer but somehow I felt it didnít stick together and I moderately enjoyed it when focussing on the roasted nutty flavours. This is the type of beer that no two person will agree on the description... and on the pronunciation.

Dark brown color, with a big fluffy tan-colored head, yeasty, cookie dough nose, with a toasted, caramelized malt note, with a dark dried fruity accent of raisins, plums, figs, dates, ripe apples, with some candy, brown sugar, a touch of nutmeg spiciness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, toasty malt, sweet dark dried fruity character, with a hint of black chocolate, with a winey, plummy, raisiny flavor, within a sweet malty warmth mouthfeel, leading towards a malty, fruity, warming finish.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2007
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Utobeer (I think).
Opaque dark brown with a bubbly tan head that was initially huge and uncontrolable but settled in seconds like some chemical experiment to a thin covering. Burnt malt aroma with some obvious caramel and fruity notes. Caramel comes to the front in the mouth but is not as overly sweet as my first taste had me think. Burnt becomes roasty where the malts are concerned and they are fairly decent. Slight bitterness pirckles the edges of the tongue and the overall impression is pretty good all round. Sadly it is let down considerably by a heavily over carbed mouthfeel. Either I have an unusual bottle or Iím quite amazed as to how many 4s have been given for the palate. Shame because I really like it elsewhere. Has a slight aged feel to it too. Dusty and pleasing. Lovely delicate burn on the way down from the alcohol too. Close but not quite close enough.

SHIG (4670) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with reddish hnt, fast acting light brown head. Aroma is sweet malt, sugars, possible caramel. The taste roasted malt very sweet, but hoppy tingle is very nice also.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear, orangey brown close to mahogany. Nice and lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. A fairly solid and vinous body with some notes of dried fruit and lots of roasted malt and some port. Dry, lightly hoppy finish. Quite delicate really. 041106
