Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Mahogany with a frothy head and stringy lacing. Nose is full of yeast and malts. Some candy aromas and almost a touch of soda. Flavor is just a bit metallic. Not much, but just a hint of penny in the beginning there. Sweet caramel and brown sugar roll in next. This is definately a dessert beer. A bit of heat at the end as well.

750ml caged and corked bottle. Poured an amber color with a smaller sized head. Yeasty and fruity.

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours thick amber murky sour mix in color with a creamy sandy head. Aroma and flavor bring some fruity Belgian yeast that settle easily on the palate. The body is slightly chalky at this age, almost 7 years. There are some tame zesty yeast notes as well, that have faded for sure.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2013
This was a pretty damn good beer. It had that classic honey/yeasty malt aroma that makes Unibroue so damn good. The taste was sweet and bready with some more honey, yeast and sweet citrus. Undertones of dark fruits and brown sugar put it over the top for me.

OmegaX (1156) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Thanks again, Keir. Nose is candied sugar, dark fruits, pear, melon, yeast, sweet malts. Flavor is mainly yeast, candied sugar, and light fruits. Very pleasant.

greenhorn1 (782) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Vintage 2009 bottle. Awesome beer. Very sweet aroma and flavor, but don’t let this discourage you. Very easy to drink and ABV is undetectable. Very impressed with this one.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013
15-MAR-2013, bottle @Sonni, @Ulkløbben tasting. Clear amber with lasting off-white head. Sweet aroma of bready malt, fruit, dried fruit, caramel, nuts. Very barley wine-like. Quite hoppy with some grape fruit. Not really a belgian strong ale or is it just age showing? Very fine brew.

Süß-hefiger, leicht honigartiger Beginn, starke Karbonisierung. Süßer werdend, elicht Alkoholnoten. Hefig, süß-würzig. 11/9/10/10/9/10

Hazy amber beer, fluffy white head. Light palate, slightly soft. Creamy soft malt, a little dry. Yields to pleasant fruits, mild orange and a trace of pear. Finishes soft and dry with a carbonated sting. A little yeast in there as well. Pleasant enough if a little dry.

Sask89 (398) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours a deep amber colour, clear with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity with coriander spice, lemon peel and orange scents, and oak notes. Taste is quite sweet but not overwhelming, with no significant bitterness aside from some undertones. Full body, creamy-smooth mouth feel and softer carbonation. Amazingly good beer.

thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to JJFoodie) cloudy medium orange, ring of tan bubbles. Nose of sherry/port, rich, dark fruits like dates and raisins, light alcohol. Taste is oddly acidic, golden raisins, seems like alcohol Heat but almost more like chipotle/ancho chilies, interesting and well carbonated.
