BlackHaddock (3657) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
Brown 25cl bottle, best before 22 Aug 2007, drank 10 July 2007. Obtained while travelling through Belgium. Poured into one of my Corsendonk tulip glasses. Dirty, murky red-come-dark brown in colour with a scummy biege thin head. Aroma of sweet molasses, a kind of toffee, malty smell. The taste follows the aroma at first, sweet and malty. Then sour fruit flavours arrive as the beer warmed. The alcohol comes through in the mouthfeel, not the greatest beer to come from Silly, but not all bad. I will not be searching high and low for this beer, but if our paths cross again, I won’t run away.

turbothy (1086) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2011
Pours golden amber with no head. Sweet, malty aroma - unidimensional but pleasant. One of the smoothest beers I’ve had if not the most complex - very well done Belgian ale.

Bouteille 25cl. Cuivre, col beige. Belle petite surprise, bière maltée, caramel avec pas mal de fruits noirs. Je pense que la base d’origine pour cette recette doit être la scotch de Silly. Profile est épais et malté, pas de bons fruits noirs et une touche de réglisse. Alcool est réchauffant, malt confère un profile grillé, toffee, sucre brun avec sur la fin une pointe d’amertume.

bouteille 25cl. Couleur cuivre, col beige. Arôme fruité sec, allant vers la date, figue, caramel et malt le tout restant bien présent et avec une bonne note de sucre candi. En bouche, je retrouve là le même caractère que au nez. Une bière qui est forte agréable et mélange parfaitement le caramel, le malt, sucre candi/brun avec la mélasse, fruits confits sucrés le tout terminant sur une très fine amertume mais qui conserve néanmoins une bonne présence fruitée. Possible que tout cela se soit rendu plus présent par l’age, mais une bière qui m’a convaincu.

thewolf (11178) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle @ Delirium, Brussels.
Pours deep redish chestnut with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is vinious, lots of raisins, dark malts and port. Low carbonation, dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has pleasant fat maltiness, rather warming and vinious, plums, light chocolate, molasses and good port. Long dry and kinda oaky finish. Nice.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.
