schuimkroaat (416) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2006
33 cl bottle. Best before 2 years after the bottling date, which is...? Murky red-brown with a multitude of whirling bubbles. The initially abundant and boisterous beige head quickly collapses to thick lace. Nose of yeast and warm, dry biscuits with roasted walnuts. Sweet and a bit tart in a fruity way, with roasted coffee and nutty flavours. Very gentle bitter aftertaste, reminding of chicory powder. A surprisingly dry and sharp finish with strong carbonation and light alcoholic warmth.

joergen (20742) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2006

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 2009-10-17, draught at Spuyten Duyvil, New York, 5-5-6-3-11=30
Hazy dark amber color; creamy head. It smells a bit of old tap, and yeast. It’s too much carbonated, caramel flavor, a bit woody; the final bitterness is too much for a Belgian Ale. It seems that this beer has suffered.

2006-05-13, bottle, 7-4-6-3-14=34
Dark brown color; thin head. The aroma is malty, with caramel and malt fruitness. The taste has some caramel and a lot of candi sugar, light cookies; the mouthfeel is too thin. Not bad, but they should use more malt and less candi.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2006
Sweet and quite pruney aroma, with the typical notes of dark fruits for a belgian strong ale like this. Dark brown body with a reddish tint, small off-white head. Prunes and sweetness in the flavor, notes of some brandy, maybe a hint of apple, light alcohol in the end. Nice and decent, but not spectacular.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Draft. Nose is sweet malts and light spice on the brown bodied beer. Taste brings out more sweet maltiness, ripe fruits, dark chocolate, light spice, and hints of cocoa. Body is medium with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes sweet with a light spice profile, choco-notes and light floral hops.

thebeertourist (4816) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2006
Tasted at the ZBF 2006. Dark red-brown colour with a creamy beige head, leaving lacing. Weakish caramel aroma. Flavours are sweet caramel and liquorice with some pear sirup. Medium body. A nice brown ale not attempting to be too complex.
