vanvenlo (1229) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2004
8 May 2004 - Spiritous, vinuos, heavy malt with a hint of earthy aroma. Cloudy deep brown colour with small head and soap lacing. Sweet and medicinal flavours, with an earthiness and a spiritous throat. Medium mouthfeel. I wouldn’t mind rating this one again.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2007 Well here’s my rerate from a 3.1 rating, it appears the original was a bad bottle. Poured a bright rubyish hue, a tad darker than pure red. 3 finger head with sheets of lacing - enough protein that my tulip glass shapes the head. Aroma is strongly fruity with plum, date, persimmon coupled with a mild caramelization. Flavor starts with a pillowy body fleshing out lots of sugary malts, and a slight fruitiness. Next, a yeasty spiciness couples tightly with a light alcohol burn through the finish. Lingering banana and phenol. Nice big Belgian, but not as smooth, complex and well-integrated as it could be.

Dark brown, some red, opaque, with a small white head, aroma of grape, sugar and some alcohol, flavor is sweet, malty, not particularly fruity, no hops, some alcohol. Overall, pretty good.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Pours cloudy brown in color with a huge light brown head that sticks to the sides of my glass. Fruity sweet and spicy aromas, sugary plum and raisin flavors, medium bodied with a crisp almost soda like mouthfeel, finishes with a brown sugar sweetness.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Says its a dubbel. If so the strangest dubbel ever. Nose is peppery, fig like and meaty rounded out with a lovely cinnamon or spice touch. Flavors however do not match the nose. Not all that peppery not all that fig like not all that meaty. More bland than anyhting else in the mouth but not awful G-rat

This might be my favorite st bernardus yet. Bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a fat fluffy head that stays til the end. nice pear aroma with a touch of earthy yeast scent.sweet and chewy taste with an up front bitterness that finishes with a fruity sweet maltiness. nice enjoyable warming brew.

Eructoblaster (2999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2004 Hazy brown body with a thin but lasting beige creamy head. Lots of carbonation as I poured it. Strong alcohol and toffee aroma. Vigorous and warming alcohol attack. Then the taste gets milder, balanced and characterized with nutty, chocolate and caramel hints. Long and pleasant vineous aftertaste. This is quite a nice one! Thanks for the order, PrimeMinister!

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2004
750 ml corked bottle dated 2002 (best before 2007). Poured a medium mahagony color with an averaged sized tan head. Floating particles. Nice carbonation. Aromas of malts, plums, raisins, bread, and some spices. Tastes of molasses, brown sugar, light yeast, and some plums. Alcohol well hidden. Top notch belgian brew.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Aroma is malty with some cherries, raisins, and roasted almonds. Appearance is brown with a moderate white head. The flavor is slightly spicy with some nutmeg. I can detect some grapes, caramel, and wheat. This beer is also quite carbonated. A good one! Thanks Wunderbier.
