aroma is yeasty and a little nutty. pours dark brown with a light tan head. flavor is somewhat tart and sweet, flavors of apples and belgan yeast. i really have trouble putting my finger on flavors in belgan beers, but i do know that I enjoyed this beer and would seek it out again

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2004
Hazy brown body, thick, foamy and long lasting head. Heavy aroma of fruit, plum, raisins, spices and a nice hint of alcohol. Great! Flavor is very soft and spicy with penetrating raisin and chocolate notes. A little watery finish but with a nice alcohol bite. A very full-bodied and tasteful beer. Can't wait to taste no. 12!

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Nice thin head which last the duration. Subtle aroma of grapes, malt and a little bit of spices. Color is a nice cloudy dark amber. Sweet flavor with some fruit, malt and a touch of alcohol. Finish is creamy and warming with a slight dry artertaste. A good abbey brown (dubbel) but I am starting to notice that this is not my favorite style.

obxdude10 (2043) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Another great abbey-style beer, brown color, no head whatsoever, I don't know if my bottle was a little flat or not but there was absoutley no head, it didn't taste flat so I went with it, huge malt profile, sweet nose & flavors, yeast & candy sugar as well in the flavors

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Very attractive light brown in color with a big off white head that is very fully retained. Aroma is compelling. Notes of raisins, yeast and alcohol. Flavor is initially malty. Finish is very long lasting and chewy. Excellent beer.

hershiser2 (1227) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Georgeous unfiltered dark brown, with a nice fluffy tan head. Reminds me of dark, dark cider with nutmeg floating around. Nice sweet alchohol scent... not too overpowering... some fruitiness in there too. This one is odd... first sip I was thinking, "Hmm, a bit too harsh and fake." But the second sip is when I truly tasted the complexity. Starts out with a sweet fruity apple, or similar fruit, and gets progressively bitter, finishing with an creamy chocolatey/coffee taste. Nice beer... not a session for it's sweetness and abv... but I'll see more of these in my future.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - FEB 1, 2004
750 ml. big 'ole brown Belgian bottle. Corked and caged. Freshness date on metal cap was 7/2008. Must be fairly fresh then. Loud pop releases the cork, satisfying hiss of carbonation escaping from the bottle. Poured out a murky, cloudy reddish - brown color, with a huge off-white head. It leaves a more than decent lacing down the sides of the glass. Thick, yeasty matting on top of the beer itself. Aromas are of candi sugar, dark malts, slight caramel, toasted bread, and Belgian yeast. Tastes are of caramelized sugars, Pilsner malts, and Noble hops. Spicy hop bite to it, and a decent maltiness as well. Mouthfeel is slightly thinnish. Dry finish to it as well. A decent double, but not my cup of tea.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Muddy brown orange with a medium head with small persistant bubbles. Bready plums that are swimming happily in alcohol. Smooth and almost creamy. The body is filled with small bubbles. Caramel notes at the end. This is the best beer that I've had all year.

theakston (64) - arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2004
dark brown. nice creamy head. aroma is sweet and yeasty with a citrus hop presence. flavour is well balanced sweet and malty with an understated vinious almost sour brett tang and hop bite. Excellent beer I'll have to find some more of this!!
