crossovert (7702) - 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 isnít 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 (509) - 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.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2011

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 (6635) - 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 (8657) - 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.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2010
Orange-brown coloured. A big head, holds just not long enough to be real good, sticks ok to the glass. Something very pleasant at the smell, canít tell what it is, but itís something sweet-woodish. Also some sourness and spices comes up. A bit weird smell, but not bad at all. Sweet taste, a bit unpleasant mouthfeel, to much carbonation. The taste is pretty decent, sweetness, some fruits and yeast. Some very nice roastiness and spices. That pleasant thing from the smell comes trough also. Like this one, a little surprise for me. Good sweetness, light biterness at the end. Something weird dry.

jrob21 (2628) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle back from greensboro. Pour is a muddy brown with some long lasting lace that stays in your glass. Earthy, belgian yeast aroma with a little bit of caramel as well. Flavor reminds me much of a barleywine with some molasses and a syrupy sweetness. Slight cocoa texture and flavor. Rich malty drink here.
