skortila (4537) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2004
Aroma of roasted malts, sweet, rye, vanilla and fruits. Cloudy, brown coloured with an off-white, thin and lasting head. Sweet, malty, vanilla, fruity and more bitter in the end. Very much of everything and very unbalanced. Alcoholic palate.

Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle: from some older notes I recently found: Brown beer with a light brown head. Smell and taste are sweet and caramel malty with a better and fuller taste than smell. Also taste some darker fruits and spices. Not bad.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of Papsoe, another great tasting session] Huge thick beige head that mostly lasted. Moderated particles were in flow. Color was mahogany. Aroma was really quit lovely with a mix of pepper, roasted malt, Belgian yeast, prunes, date, liquorish, light sweet wine like and a underlying caramel feel as well. Full bodied with a lively carbonation and alcoholic texture. Moderated to almost heavy sweet. Maybe its only downfall was the slightly unbalanced sweet domination flavor. Overripe fruit like lingering finish. I thought this was quit lovely. 27-07-07

77ships (4031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kulminator. BBF 22/10/2004 (2003 Vintage presumably). Dark brown with a tanned / beige head. Nose doesn’t betray the age, pretty sweet, some oxidation but less than I would expect, sugary, syrup, brown fruits, figs, prunes, light liquorish, solid shape. Taste is slightly watery, liquorish, brown sugar, prunes, figs, caramel, syrupy, oxidation is light, fudge, slightly warming. Body is touch watery. Solid, very good shape. Expected very little but this was not bad at all & has held up surprisingly well, not too shabby.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2002

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2002
Dark, murky brown-red, with medium, short lasting, dark beige head. Strong, cured meat yeast, and maltly, even bitter, aromas coming through. Medium to large body that fills the mouth with too many bubbles. I didn’t find it all that sweet but more of an unbalanced, raw, stoutish bitter and alcohol flavour. You get the feeling that all the ingredients are there but the whole thing just hasn’t been put together right - sort of a work in progress?
