Eructoblaster (3217) - 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 (9453) - 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 (2649) - 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.

Dogbrick (8963) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jul 9th, 2004: Pours a lightly cloudy brown color with a light tan head. Thin lacing. The aroma is an interesting concoction of malt, raisin and caramel. Medium-bodied with a great Belgian feel from the get-go. Flavors of spice (cinnamon and coriander), yeast, warming alcohol and caramel. The finish is nicely complex with lots of spice and malt. I am a fan of the 12 and this beer is no slouch either.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2004
This brew poured to a huge creamy head,bigger than Donald Trump’s.I was finally left with a hazy ruby brew busy with carbonation.Unfortunately,there was little to speak about as far as taste and aroma so this beer will need to be revisited.Unusual for a St.Bernardus.

rajendra82 (970) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2004
The quality of the beer is immediately apparent in the reddish brown insanely carbonated body, and the towering tan head. The aroma is complex, with chocolate, honey, and musk on the nose. The taste has a warm and spicy alcohol bite, with a banana nut bread taste, and some dusty yeast lurking in the back. The mouthfeel is creamy and a bit on the light side. This is technically a Dubbel, but comes in Tripel strength of 8% ABV. A welcome newcomer to Georgia shelves.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Smells like buttered bread. Well, not exatly, but maybe in liquid form. But its a dark brown hiding under a good vat of cream. Taste is a bit of caramel and banana. Hmmm... Maybe It’s liquid banana bread. Regardless, its very smooth except for a slight ending bitterness which comes with a ending sweet feel on the lips.

Boutip (4995) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
Bottle: Poured a quite opaque brown beer with a great head with good retention. Aroma is bit weaker then expected with some roasted malts and some light plums. Taste is also a mix between roasted malts, a bit of candi sugar and some light plums. Overall, this is a good beer lacking a bit of complexity and overshadowed by better products from this brewery.
