reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2011
330ml bottle poured dark brown color with a finger of creamy beige head with good retention leaving some fine lacing behind. Aroma of caramel and roasted malts. Taste is malty sweet with a roasted malt bitterness and hops in the finish. A very nicely balanced ale which is a little different than most of the Belgian ales I have sampled. Recommended.

prawlie (1141) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2011
33 cL bottle from ABS Drinks in Winksele poured into a Westmalle glass at home. Brown, dark red when held up to the light. A good creamy, bubbly head. Strong spiced, fruity, sweet and licorice aroma, a bit of bubblegum. Sweet, candy sugars, no hint of it being 8% from the taste! A hint of oily alcohol later, adding some depth. Pretty nice, but ultimately a little one diminsional.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Dark amber body with a thick, beige caramel fluff top. Aroma is plummy with well rounded amber malt entities and candi malt and brown sugar. Cidery brown malt flavors. Woodsy and bubblegum touches. Brown sugar and melanoidins rush in as well.

jaghana (3886) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle 33cl from Altonbrownd thanks a lot, a dark beer with medium brownish head. Nose is very nice on dark malt and belgian yeast, near to Dubbel nose. Aroma is well malty with caramel, chocolate and spice notes, burnt candy sugar hints, sweet, long toasted aftertaste, very pleasant, some fruit cherry hints and slightly vinous, delicious.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle, at De Bierkamer. It pours a hazy, brown body under a big, off-white to beige head. The aroma is sugary, with caramel, spices and hints of alcohol and cellar. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, it blends sweetness and spices quite nice, and there’s also a touch of yeast. Full-bodied and warming. Spiced and warming finish. Although quite sweet, this is a pretty nice beer I could drink more of. 110430

330 ml bottle @ De Bierkamer. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Relatively light aroma of sweet malt, caramel and fruit. Flavor is sweet, but feels surprisingly light. Caramel malt, candy, spices, fruity and hint of warming alcohol. Noting really special but quite nice anyway.
