Zeswaft (1455) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Pours out murky brown with ever flowing yeast chunks. Head is off-white and incongruent. Aroma is figgy and yeasty. Flavor is much of the same and malty. Not as much fruit flavor as I’ve seen in BSA’s. Seems more like a tripel. Body seems medium to light. In the end it’s a pretty good tasting Belgian. Kicks the ass of the Rochefort 6 I just had. Wish it was more "complex" though.

thewolf (11439) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
Strong smell. Good whitish head that dissappears quickly. A fruity powerfu taste with slight bitterness. Quite sweet but with a long, fresh fruity aftertaste with slight malty undertones.

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
Strong scent that I picked up past arms length, very sweet and very aromatic. Light head hugs the glass over a very dark pour. Bit of alcohol in the taste at first then bitter with a clean finish. Swear I tasted Prune in this one. I found it got more sour the more I drank it.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Aroma is lots of apple juice, though gains sweet malt and spicyness as it warms. Pours deep, ruddy brown with a huge head. Flavor is very full and complex, much like that of a Quad, with lots of plum, sour apple, a bit of puckering from the palate. Interesting, velvety mouthfeel. Nice beer.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Moderately malty, medium to strong molasses like sweetness. Light yeast notes. Hints of brown sugar. Medium light body. Small head that lingers the entire sitting. If this didn’t cost me $11.99 for a four pack I’d be putting these in my fridge more often.

The head is very good - turns creamy like a nitro beer and produces good lacing. Aroma is sweet with some light alcohol and coriander or nutmeg. Flavour is just spicy enough with some light alcohol and good amount of bitterness. I can’t decide if I like this better than the Abt 12.

tenghave (402) - Taastrup, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Købt i Superbrugsen for 35 kr. (70 cl. flaske). Øllen er brun med flot brunt skum Øllen er utrolig tung, og det tager lang tid at nyde den. Eftersmagen varer længe, og er god. Alcohollen dominerer dog en del, hvilket ikke lige er min smag. Øl, som skal drikkes i små mængder.

mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle. Nice sweet yeasty, raisiny scent. Fairly malty at the start with a nice biting dry aftertaste. Nice zing with citrus and yeast scents. Great beer.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Pours an opaque umber brown with a gigundous khaki head. Aroma of caramel malt, strawberry, sugar. Caramel really heavy here, along with strawberry and blue berry, malt, a hint of alcohol. Finishes with like berry candy, but leave a slight alcohol kick in the back of the throat. Body is brow ale solid and fairly creamy, not too thick. When it comes to these abbey style ales, 8 seems to be my lucky number.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark, murky brown and a thin to medium light brown head. Great lacing. Nice fruity aroma of plums, apples and a hint of spice. Flavor is mostly the same dark fruits, lots of malt. Mouthfeel is creamy and full. The finish leaves me with a bready flavor in the back of my mouth. Very good beer, I’m looking forward to trying others from this brewery.
