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.

Alengrin (4254) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Potters’ beer supposed to be served in a stone jar, but I pour it into a trappist chalice since I hate being served beer of which I cannot see the colour. Yellow beige, dense, sticky head over a dark brown beer with reddish hue, lightly hazy. Fruity aroma with lots of deep maltiness, floral hops, plums, banana, pear, chocolate, butterscotch, dark candi sugar, brambleberries, candied dates; sweet caramelly taste with dark fruits, apple, banana, full and agreeable maltiness, soft, light sourish touch and liquorice, delicate carbonation, bitterish finish with peppery hops and a subtle roasted accent (coffee) as well as warming, but nowhere disturbing alcohol. I enjoyed this very much and as I stated in my rating of Pater Van Damme, I am convinced the latter was an alias of this, at least ten years ago when I tasted both of them side by side and could not find any difference whatsoever.

Excalibur123 (344) - Soria, SPAIN - SEP 22, 2014
Presenta color marrón oscuro con excesiva capa de espuma que no deja servirse bien en la copa, manteniendo una fina capa al final; aromas a caramelo, malta tostada, frutos rojos y especias; en boca entrada picante y maltosa con notas a miel y vainilla; cuerpo y carbónico medios en una cerveza ale que peca en exceso de especias pero se bebe fácilmente.

Bottle in my used-to-be-clean living room. Are you kidding me ???? This bitch even gushes more than their damn ’maeght van gottem ’ . And this time, lets not blame a Hopcone ( that should not be in a bottle of beer anyways , since it’s a clear invitation for infections and have been proven to cause some serious gushing ) no, this is just a proof of a bad quality in the beer, somewhere . After cleaning up the floor and couch ( thnx for that guys ) The foam had disapeared . Zero resistancy, even though the pour took 2 glasses for half the bottle ( that, BTW, kept gushing ) Smell is metallic and grainy-sweetness, as well as sugar . Overcarbonated . Taste is straight sugar - caramelly . Some earthy undertone, some bitterness . Tastewise, i’d say I like this . Even to the point of ’I really like this ’ . But lets be honoust here . Overcarbonated, simple, yet still not even free of brewing mistakes ( too much sugar in refermentation ? ) ... Its a yummy beer , with bad quality . And how the hell can I rate it high if it has low quality ? ___ otherwise, the score would be about 3,8-3,9 / 5 ___
