DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle @ BeerBistro. Dark mahogany with a thin beige head. Aroma is intriguing, certainly sweet and fruity, but it took me a while to pin it down-- there is, without a doubt, a pronounced blueberry component to the aroma, along with burnt sugars and light chocolate. On the palate, toast and burnt sugar feature most prominently, with that same blueberry floral/perfumey fruit essence. Quite carbonated with a lively mouthfeel. Not sure what to make of this in the end. Unfortunately it was a terrible pairing with my pecan tart.

Leighton (16281) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, ruby-brown with a vivacious, khaki head. Lovely aroma, some candied fruits, light toffee, sweet bread. The flavor doesn’t quite match the nose. Medium sweet flavor, quite fruity, with the malty-toffee character taking a backseat. There is a strong, rather unpleasant medicinal booziness in here. Also some toasty malts. Medium bodied, warm, with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish, modestly sweet with boozy fruits, light toasted malts, faint leafy hops. After an auspicious beginning this beer falters.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2011
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick dark brown and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch . This beer smells caramel.

Fantastic fruity aroma, beautiful colour, deep taste with quite wide palete, so overall it is good belgian double. Tried it aged so, it had nice dusty and old impression

JorisPPattyn (8914) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2011
Apparently sample somewhat aged, unsure how much. Very good, tight dark cream head over opaque brown beer with reddish sheen. Intensely malty, sweetish-aromatic nose with some oxydation, portwine and (dark) honey, inviting. Sweetish/bitterish taste; if well-balanced, rather dullish and way much less complex than the nose. Bit (dark red) fruity & bubblegum. Medium bodied, bit slick, but feeling rather thinnish for a 7% beer. Nose proved remarkable; pity the rest didn’t follow.
