MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Cloudy dark brown. Lovely, huge puffy head that evaporates down to a consistent, thin creamy coating. Nice nose, full of candy sugars. Notice some raisins and a promising sourness, also a bit metallic. Flavor is very malty, deep fruitiness predominated by plums and molasses. Slightly pungent. Sugars reminscent of rock candy, nicely zinger. Has subtle hints of pears wrapped in nutmeg cream. Texture is very smooth and creamy. Masks the 8% beautifully. Prefer this to the Westy 8.

Really great malts, brown malts hazy brown appearance, flavor of dried raisins and other dark fruits. Flavor of rich malts and biscuit grains and light yeasty banana character. Great stuff.

Hazy brown, huge off-white head, thick laces after it falls. Aroma of dry fruit, white wine, roast acidity, minimal alcohol. Medium to full body. Oily. Sweet taste of dry fruit (prune, raisins) with light bitterness along. Some alcohol present. The same pictute in finish. Excellent balance. Very warming. Very good.

RafeAU (395) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2015
330 ml bottle from Plonk. Best before 27.05.2018. Bubbly off white head, deep brown. Huge rich boozy alcohol aroma. Little sweetness up front with dry and moderately bitter finish. Highly carbonated, and medium-thin body, full mouth feel, warming alcohol finish. Malty, dry fruit/raisin, a hint of banana? A most excellent dubbel.

Nose is sweet, taste is sweet, life is sweet. Nice beer, I just cannot really understand it. It is not so strong but quite full in body. Sweet but not much sourness. I think it´s maybe even too sweet for me which is extraordinary.

R4N5H (291) - SINGAPORE - JUL 5, 2015
Oosters Singapore on 03/07/15. 33cl bottle (shared), poured into an official St.Bernardus chalice. Light brown in colour with a thin beige coloured head. Medium carbonation. Funky fruity aroma, with malt, dark fruit and spices. Very sour on the palate, although the sourness reduces as the beer warms in the glass. Flavour of raisin, sour plums, malt and molasses. I do have a concern that the sourness was as a result of poor handling in shipping (dates was fine, BBE 2017).
