pivo (2578) - GERMANY - NOV 13, 2005
Toasted bread crust nose with some sweet caramel. Dark brown with a frothy tan head. Big, broad sugary malt, figs and raisins in the middle as well as toffee, light roasted malt effect at the end. Chewy body, clean palate. Great balance and a fantastic brune.

JK (4586) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Do not serve chilled or cool or whatever the bottle says. Very dark and cloudy brown. Small but thick head that becomes rocky, and remains as a thin layer on top of the beer until the last sip. Cold immediately from the bottle the beer has little aroma, little flavor, and far too much carbonation; so much so that it seems to effect the flavor as footbalm said. After warming to room temperature there is malt, fruit, and very light spice. Flavor of rich sweet malt, some fruit. The alcohol is well hidden in the flavor. This tastes like a dubbel, but with the abv so high, it would be fair to call it a quad. Pleasant.

joergen (21291) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2005
Bottled. Hazy brown coloured with a small off white head. Aroma of malts, fruits, spices and dried fruits. Sweet flavour of malts, dried fruits and caramel.

YogiBeera (2486) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Dark brown color, medium forthy eggshell white head. Bread dough and yeast nose - great. Candy sugar taste, slightly alcohol to detect - and like a grain barn. Lively carbonated. Very spicey, yeast in the beginning - nice nutmeg and cloves in the middle with a weird though kind of light sour, sellery finish.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Pours a reddish brown with a nice fizzy layer odf foam. Nose is a jumbled mix of some spices and fruits with some sweet maltness.This is very carbonated,so much so that it fizzles the flavor off my tongue.Does have some coriander and fruit esters but not all that for a Belgian Strong.

rauchbier (3626) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Bottle, ZBF 2005. Hazy brown, good off white head and moderate condition. Low roastiness and chocolate in the nose, sweet and chocolaty in the mouth with some roast barley dryness in the mouth, low sweet malty finish with more roastiness.

TimE (3298) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 7, 2005
Dark brown color with dog food and chocolate in the nose, which was surprising for a Belgian Ale. Rich, chocolatey smooooth mouth with fig, chocolate and snuff and a big dry malty chocolately finish.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
Roasted bread and anise notes with good malt depth. Toffee and marzipan tinted dough characters. Very good mouthfeel nice and full with a woody and nutty finish.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2005
Dark brown with a very large beige fluffy head. Aromas are sweet and malty, some chocolate and fruit but lacking impact not much alcohol. Flavours are sweet malty and fruity, hints of berries with chocolate and spices. Becomes thick foam on the palate if held in the mouth - like some novelty cocktail drinks - nice, though. The booze comes through eventualllllyyyy (slurring). Urrrrr.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2005
Nice brown color with nice creamy beige head. Rich and round aroma’s of malt, some burned accents, little chocolaty hints and some alcohol in the nose. Sweet malty taste with smooth light burned accents and some alcohol warmth in the end.
