5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bottle:   A darker amber of sorts, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Nice aroma of sweet breadiness and mild dark pitted fruit.   Sweet maltiness up front, very much like rustic bread.   Very fruity, both in the dark pitted fruit and even in the lighter colored fruit.   This one is pretty sweet overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   For a Belgian Brown Ale, this one was better than most.   Sweeter, with a bit more punch than usual.   I can dig it!

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle from the take away service at De Bierkamer. Dense, fawn coloured head. Hazy, brown body. Aroma of sweet malts with modest notes of tart fruits. Earthy malts, sweet candies and notes of yeast in flavour. Gets too sweet (shared with Finn, hotel room in Aalst 30.04.2011).

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2011
bouteille 33cl brune/ambré couleur de glaise, col soyeux beige. Pratique pour cette bière du potier Arôme malt, fruits noirs, sucre candi avec note de levure et épices, malt rappelle aussi la pâte de cookie. En bouche, ressent bien le sucre candi, et ce que j’apprécie vraiment la levure qui est sans rappeler une levure de trappiste pour une bière qui est d’ailleurs très proche d’une triple. Laisse sur le palais des bonnes notes de fruits; pruneau sec avec un peu de réglisse. Bière épaisse en bouche, malt caramel et biscuité, avec touche de mélasse et de sucre candi et épices. Levure apporte quant à elle un palais très agréable qui fait que cette bière rivalise avec une bonne abbaye ou monastère.

crossovert (10045) - Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
11.2 oz Belgian mini-style bottle, not the stubby like in the picture. Pours a dense, dark brown with slight hues of reddish brown on the edges. The head is huge and tan and recedes very slowly. Just a mountain of foam up there. Some lacing forms as the head slowly deflates. The smell is a good blend of dark fruits and slightly dark, bready malts. It has a heck of a raisinbread scent, and the slightest bit of tartness on the nose. There are some spices in there too, it is a rich, bready smell. The flavor is very solid. There is a huge tart/fruity prescence here, there are notes of lemon, raisin, cherry, and plum along with thick bready malts that have a bit of roastiness to them. It has a ton o alcohol that isn’t really well hidden, and it is a bit sweet however. Definitely more of a winter warmer-type Belgian, not the best, but it will warm you up for sure.

doublebock (535) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Copper orange color with very thick layer of beige foam. Malty then yeasty aroma. Notes of dark fruit, molasses and candy sugar. Reminds me of a Kastell Bruin. Subtle ABV content.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - FEB 14, 2011
750 ml corked bottle. A hazy dark brown beer with a large, frothy/fizzy mostly diminishing beige head. The aroma is moderately malty, lightly hoppy, lightly yeasty. There are notes of toasted grain, caramel, chocolate, candy sugar, herbs, plums, dates, a hint of alcohol, perhaps a hint of figs. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. A very pleasant beer with maybe only a not persistent head and excessive sugar and carbonation, but a fruity, complex aroma, a good balance and well hidden alcohol. Somewhat underrated

KyotoLefty (8138) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle from Tanakaya. Fruity, chocolate cookie aroma, cinammon, brown sugar. Dark orange-brown with a tall, fine, fluffy head. Sweet and malty, with dried fruits, chocolate, cookies, rich, savory malt, pears, and something like rum or jenever too. Alcohol bites a bit. Also a bit of a ornge-chocolate tang and some bitter hops in the finish. Reasonably complex and well balanced.

Drake (11146) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Served on draft at Mekong in Richmond, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a large creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Fruity aroma with notes of berries, apples, some maple notes and a bit of paint thinner. The taste is green apples, berries, maple, green bananas, brown sugar and a bit of a chemical note. Medium bodied. Weird, odd and disjointed.
