oh6gdx (20842) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma of malts and plum, but still quite bitterish. Flavour is metallic, malts and plum. Some spices also there, but the metallicness is ruining the flavour.

omhper (19805) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2003
Bottled. Dark chestnut brown with smallish head. Richly malty with hints of toffee and black cherries. Sweet with just a hint of the balsamic acidity usually dominating flemish browns. Syrupy finish.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
Beautiful ruby-amber color. Malt aroma. Caramel and liquorice over all; ends somehow thin and drier than my favorites. Short palate.

33cl bottle at Delirium Cafe. Pours amber/ruby with a small creamy head. Sweet matured, cellar, mouldy aroma. Caramel, earthy, bread and sugar. Medium bodied. Smooth and round with a mouldy sweet caramel cellar note. Nice one!
