LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Large tan head, a bit liverly. Fruit and raisons, some sugary sweetness. Very malty, very smooth. Nice Dubbel.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2003
Bottled. Well conditioned. This beer was everything you expected from a trappist double. Brown with a bold, fluffy white head, sweat malt aroma with vanilla and cinnamon flavours mixed in around the nutty roasted malt flavours. Not all that on the finish but still a quality drop.

SchlossyMcSaus (75) - San Marcos, California, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Big head on the cloudy brown stuff. Wafts of fruti and cheese and some caramel sweetness. In a velvetty mouthful it maintains these points and adds nutty qualities to boot. definitely a new favorite, but cost is a consideration.

drinkbeer (281) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JUL 9, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2003 aroma of raisons, sugar, twisslers, toffee. appearance is cloudy brown, fizzy head dissipates to thin layer. Soothing malt taste with caramel, sweet w/slight bitterness coming through at the finish.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2003
Color is yellow non-transparent with a nice white stable head. Taste is malty with sweet hints and a kind of a spicy finish.

haukur (1201) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 5, 2003
a very malty nose, not a very large head but it almost remained the same over the 20 minutes I was drinking this. Malty taste with hints of caramel, chocolate and some spices. Very sweet also..

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Strong dark fruit notes in the nose, along with banana. Very rich copper/brown body, topped with a nice, creamy tan head. Intense, rich flavor of candied fruit, fermented banana, tart, and caramel. A liquid pleasure.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Best by the end of 2004. Very dark in color with a nice little head that slowly goes away. The bubble pattern on the glass is very fine. Nice nose that is very complex. Malty front with subtle fruity flavors weaving in and out to a sweet finish. The end is strong on the caramel and has an ever so slight bitter touch that is only noticable because of the strong sweetness. The sides of my tongue tingle a little. Excellent. This bottle seems to be at its peak because the malt is not so dominant and the subtle flavors have room to linger.

Racegoer (351) - Indiana, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Nice deep dark pour, with flawless lacework. Smelling of raisins, bananas, fruit cocktail. first sip says ultimate complexity, very well rounded Ale. Flavours of Plums, gorgeous Belgian sugar, caramel,fresh baked bread. I would drive back To Indianapolis for more of this, Glad I bought 2 bottles, I had to drive through the "hood" to find this store as Indy is under some serious road construction, hell I think I might would drive through Baghdad if I had to so I could get some more of this, Extremely Recommended!

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Lovely, lasting head. Delicious rich fruitcake flavors. Malty clove and allspice. This reminded me of Chimay blue but more intense and flavorful. Near perfect on all fronts.
