JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2011
Fast disappearing, just off-white head over orange-ochre, clear beer. Spicy, oranges, some noble hops, citrussy. Meaty, light gravy flavour with muscat grapes - as the sauce for a light roast. Bit peppery too, at that! Rather light body, well-carbonated, hopoil-slick. Very nice beer indeed.

Abio (1550) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2011
At ACBF 2011. This one should be the Dark star beer, but it was labelled as 7.0%. I read at the first rating it was the Dark star, so here I go. Light orange, with a small head,. Smell is hoppy, citrus and spices. The same at the taste. Citrus, hops, light spiced. Not bad.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear, rich gold with a thick, white cream head. Strongly attenuated malt aroma with notes of honey, toffee and lightly burnt sugar. Very nice flavor, with more attenuated sugar, caramel, bread, and hints of booze. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation and mild warmth. Thinner in body than I would have expected. Relatively short finish, lightly warming, hinting of sugar, alcohol and toffee. Starts great in the nose but struggles a bit to keep it up. Still, overall a pretty nice beer.
