Dark reddish brown colour, big creamy head, malty aroma with caramel. Tastes malty, slightly bitter, slightly sweet, with caramel and a bit of cinnamon. Long bittersweet finish, nice beer for a cold dark night.

TrefwoordPunk (850) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear dark brown with a medium fading head and an aroma of toffee, nuts, sweet malts and maybe some vinegar. The flavor isn’t too sweet, the main flavor seems to be caramel. There’s also notes of nuts, honey, bread, liquorice, winter spices, overripe dark fruits and smoked salmon. The finish s a warm spicy bitter. This is a really nice brew, I really enjoyed it.

On tap at In de Wildeman. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Caramel aroma with hints of nuts. Sweet caramel flavours. A bit thin body. Not the most potent bock around.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Via trade with glouglouburp. Near-opaque ruby pour, tiny off white head. Sweet medium roast aroma, raisins and toasted pecans, a little floral. Lush fruity/nutty taste - currants, plums, nougat, spice - yummy. Slick, still body, a little acidic, a touch of warming alcohol in the finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2009
In short: A sweet, slightly woody and slightly spicy Belgian dark ale. Quite drinkable
How: Bottle 330ml, probably 1 year old or so. Drank a few months before best-before date
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a little beige ring of foam
In long: Nose of molasses and a light presence of Christmas beer type of spices (cloves, pepper, nutmeg). Taste trades the molasses of the nose for toffee, bread crust and liquorice candies. Nice woody notes coming from either the malts or the hops (I don’t know). Very light spicy notes that add to the flavour spectrum without being distracting. Finish is very short with sweetness and woody notes. Body is a bit thin. Despite its many flavour elements the beer is not very tasty. A bit too sweet for my taste. Another Belgian micro-brew low on hops. I hear that in Alabama the label is considered sexually explicit, even a turn-on for many.
