YogiBeera (2570) - 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 (3794) - 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 (4961) - 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.

leaparsons (9779) - Wigston, 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.
