detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a medium brown with a couple inches of tan head. Pretty clear beer, until you get to the bottle of the bottle, and then swirl and dump the yeast. Then it is pretty murky. At first whiff, I thought I had an oud bruin, the smell of the beer and the cork had that delightful tangy winey aroma. But that did not carry over to the flavor of the beer. A slightly peppery taste was immediately followed by a very pronounced sweetness. Too bad - I thought the peppery flavor was excellent, the sweetness is overdone. Not a candi sugar or malty sweetness, more of a table sugar sweetness. It finished with some different kind of spice, maybe coriander and light cinnamon, which was then followed up by a very heavy mustiness or even a grainy dustiness. The yeast sediment from the bottom of the bottle produced just a hint of that tartness, which was quickly overwhelmed by sweet. I liked the spicy character of the flavor and the tangy aroma. I would have liked more of both. I would have liked less sweet.

Dark brown colored pour with a light brown thin head. A malty aroma with hints of chocolate. A roasted malt finish with a hints of caramel.

madsberg (11018) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2006
Bottled. Dark red/amber coloured. Dense beige head. Yeast, fruits, spice and light caramel in the nose. Flavour has a light sourness to it. Yeasty and spiced with some fruity notes. Caramel again. Medium bodied. Sweetish and full of berries in the end. Nice one.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2006
Bottle at the brewery (or should I say "farm"), very cloudy brown with a tan bubbly head. A rich and sweet malty aroma with a touch of spice. Some carbonation in the mouth, rich malty flavours again, with an earthy finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2006
Brown body, small white head with good lacing. Very malty with fruity flavours (orange, prunes), toffee, cacao/chocolate and a slightly spicy finish. This is a mix-bag of anything and everything but it sticks together rather well. I had this one in a pub in Liège. It’s great to be a french-speaking canadian tourist in belgium. The french-speaking half hates me because they think my accent is that of a dutch and the dutch-speaking half hates me because I’m french-speaking.

jonas (6299) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle.Quite citric aroma, candy sugar, tulips(?). Hazy red, failing creamy brown head. Clayish minerally up-front, sweet chocolate, licorice, herbal earthy hops. Citric, metallic finish and aftertaste. Deceptively light body, sparkly - feels a but too thin on the palate though, in my mind a Dubbel is somewhat creamy.

FrankJohansen (3614) - Sabro, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle. The best from saint Monon so far. Lots of aroma and lots of tast. Pretty long finish too.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle was 4 months out of date. Aroma gives forest fruits, brambels and blackberrys, giving a vinous tartness, a little aging too. Taste is similar with a little almonds from what seems to eb the agingness. Outstanding.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Dark brown and full of sediment. The head is off-white and diminishes quickly. Aroma has yeast, dark fruit and a little vinegar. Lots of taste; something different seemed to emerge every sip. A chocolate, porter-type taste was the main feature, but there was also sourness, yeast, liquorice, a sweet maltiness and some background bitterness.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Bottle shared by goldtwins: Transparent copper mahogany pour has a nicely-lacing off-white head. Dark semi-sweet malty aroma has a touch of tart dark fruit and mild oxidation. Body starts with nice malty sweetness and good spice balance with some bready yeastiness. An enjoyable Belgian brown ale.
