DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Mahogany pour swallowed by requisite goldfish bowl. Coke-like ruby tints, beige head fizzing to a slick too quickly. Dryish sesame nutty aroma dosed with anise, liquorice, ginger, cinnamon? Bits of chocolate, apple strudel, raisin, heady brandyish touches. Pencil, grain, chocolate malt backbone maybe as in a Czech dark lager or Thuringian Schwarz. Sneaking noble hop herbal notes, peaty malt emerging from behind the spice. Paper, grain, wee dram, occasional cudgelling sweet spice notes of clove, cinnamon, coriander, ginger as in Cola or some kind of herbal tonic or liqueur. Iím getting a droplet of Latvian Balzams. Too much sugar. Pronounced noble hopping as it warms, more so than usual for a Dubbel. Enjoyable, unsubtle, mixed-up spicy brew.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 18, 2008
25 cl bottle: poured clear light brown with a medium sized light brown head. Dark fruit in the aroma-prunes, raisins, a hint of banana. Nice aroma actually. The taste is fruity with raisins dominating. Fairly dry to me. I thought there would be more sweetness in it. Good beer.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 15, 2008
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 250ml bottle (BelgianShop)
Deep reddy brown, small persistent head. Sweet subtle spicy aroma, fruity, banana. Pleasant carbonation, succulent in the mouth. Very sweet fruity, spicy, almost cakey initial taste, some brandy vanilla cream. Upon swallowing, the maltiness fills out a little, and some burnt corners poke through the sweetness. A little sticky, but thatís its only flaw. Covers 7.5% very well.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2008
Bottled. Good Swedish Christmas beer aroma, cookies. Brown, thick beige head. Taste full, with a fresh and burned hoppiness in the finish.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy brown with a fully diminished off-white head. Spiced aroma. Flavour following this with a dry to acidic malt base. Ginger - sadly. Ends slight sweet and yeasty with a light acidic touch from the ginger.
