gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Aroma is muted, but I get raisins and ginger. Thick, dark brown, lots of creamy head. Flavor is full of fruits and spices, some ginger. Very drinkable, watery despite the high ABV. Very good.

[Sampled in 2003.] When I had thisone some years ago I found it rotten, sour, fat, too sweet, but later I realized it should be that way, then my notes has grown a little. Funny to see how the notes/ratings change by time. Next time maybe >4

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 I first had this been when the LCBO was selling a St. Bernardus assorted gift set at Christmas 2005. This beer was not as impressive as the 12. I recently did a tasting along with the St. Bernardus Pater 6 and Abt12. Definitely a nice beer, but nowhere near as well-balanced as the Abt 12. The beer pours a nice red-brown colour with white head with aromas of figs and spice. Has nice raisin and port flavours, but has a winey sourness that throws off the balance of the beer

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Pours dark in the tulip glass. Chunky thick white head with a nose of chocolate and malt. Body is bit lighter than should be for an 8% ABV beer. Drinkable but not memorable.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2007
Dark brown-red body. Tan on the head. Aroma: malt, milk, raisin, dark fruits. Flavor: malt, yeast, dark fruits. It´s winous and strong. In a sense it has to much co2 in it. It should be more mellow in it´s way of presenting it self.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2007
330ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a very creamy off-white head. Sweet and dark fruit in the nose with some alcohol. Full-bodied dark fruit and malt flavors, with some vinous characters. Light spice as well.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2007
draft. Chocolatey aroma, hints of roasted malts, caramel and dark fruits. Pours dark brown with a fluffy off white head. Smooth and rich malts, caramel and chocolate, creamy mouthfeel. Easy drinking for 8%.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Bottled 33cl. It pours a dark brown beer with a rather big light beige head which remains nicely - Nice and fluffy too... This ale leaves a nice lacing. The aroma is dissapointing: Rather metallic with some sour apples, seawater and cane sugar. The taste is cloying with hints of licorice. Lots of cane sugar, plums, butterscotch, apples, plums and butter. Somewhat a bit stylish. The taste reveals some surprises. Not overly complex though. Some well hidden alcohol. Full bodied and malty. A whiff of very enjoyable elements just before the finish. (Plums, Christmas pudding). Then, a wonderfully grassy and buttery finish follows. This beer has a very low bitterness, not all that well balanced, yet decently enjoyable.
