tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle. Courtesy of marsiblursi. Pours cloudy mahogany with a rim of off white bubbles. Aroma is weak; malty, fruity and raisins. Flavor is sunky, cellar, cardboard, vinous, sourish and tart. Odd. Finishes moldy and fruity bitter.

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2011
Bottle 750ml courtesy of meilby. Pours greyish dark brown with a diminishing offwhite head, good chunk of floaters. Aroma of figs, raisins, caramel, basement, toffee. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and a little paperish. Medium to full body, oily, soft carbonation. 20110421

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours a ruddy brown with a small and quickly dissipating beige cover. Aroma is oxidized pit fruits, fig, grape, plum, sherry. Taste is a bit thin bodied fruit again, some caramel, cocoa, noticeably oxidized but this one has aged gracefully.

RB1 (117) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2011
750ml bottle tasted at Daknole’s Memorial Day "Throw Down". Amber/brown pour with unimpressive cream colored head. Aroma is subdued spice, yeast, malt and maybe some dark fruit. Again taste, like aroma is just flat, with some spice, toasted malt, and somewhat bitter/sweet. Finish has some alcohol (10%abv) warmth, but time has taken it’s toll on this one. You can sense that all the spicey attributes that generally make Unibroue ales so good, are there; they’re just lost in time. Disappointing, because this was probably a good one, 3 or 4 years ago.

BuckeyeBoy (2624) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2011
750ml Bottle Thanks to ditmier. Pours out brown topped with a sand head. Aroma was pit fruit, caramel, belg yeast notes, and some spice. Taste was like the aroma with a good sweetness and spice balance. Overall pretty tasty.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Etwas hefiger, außerdem stechend malziger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil schleicht sich eine Wässrigkeit ein, die kurzzeitig den kompletten Geschmack an sich reißt. Danach säuerlich hefig, etwas trocken herb, unspektakulär. Die Malzigkeit lässt nach, das Bier bleibt minimal sauer und ist ab dem hinteren mittelteil übermäßig mild. Langweilig! 9/9/9/8/8/8

Meilby (7246) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 28, 2011
Bottle 750ml @ Zoney
Pours reddish dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits and yeast. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

jtclockwork (7956) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle at Paul’s tasting awhile back. Pours clear brown. Nose and taste of rubbing alcohol, pine nuts and toffee. Rubbing alcohol is especially strong in the nose. Past its prime.
