Tongue coating thick sweetness. Not entirely unpleasant, but so unidimensional that I was tiring of it long before I finished.

JonMoore (1957) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2004
Chestnut coloured with a slim off-white head. Aroma is alcohol, spices and raisins. Very nice balanced taste. Sweetish, malty chocolate and noticable alcohol. Nice foamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable good stuff.

PorterPounder (5874) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2004
750 ml bottle - Whole Foods. Austin, Tx. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a thick, fluffy khaki colored head, thick creamy lacing. Aroma has some whiffs of nuts, alcohol, brandy and ripe raisins. Flavor has some elements of chocolate, cherries, and dates. Just the right amount of carbonation. Alcohol hidden very well. Strong finish. A very drinkable and enjoyable Dubbel.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2004
This beer poor a dark ruby color with a nice frothy off white to beige head. Lots of lacing on this clear bodied brew. Aroma is nice with significant fruit in the nose and malt. Flavor is of dried fuit, sliglthy sweet initial flavor and yeast. Not a bad beer. Palare is also nice and substantial.

MiP (13955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 Bottle. Dark brown colour, white head. Very malty, but not too sweet. Balanced well by a strong alcohol flavour. Aroma and flavour have a hint of horse or goat, but it suits the beer OK.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Burgundy in color with a large healthy white head that laced the glass very well. The head retained well and morphed into a plateau of head that stayed until the last sip. It was quite odd. The nose, which was one of the issues of this beer, was descent. It showcases dark fruits, nuts, some spices and toasted grains. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and frosting were all around. This was pretty well hopped Belgian as well. However, I found it to be a little to thin in the mouth for it to taste great.
