garthicus (2905) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 29, 2007
Moderate Malty aroma with hints of smoke or cask, a small head which dissapeared very quickly. A cloudy body with a red hue, initial taste was lightly acidic with a moderate finish, a very moderate body, dry texture and lively on the tongue, I really enjoyed this and I shall happily try it again As I am typing this I am sensing a coffee aftertaste

Murky brown, pale head quickly foams to the rim of the glass. Smells somewhat metallic, light hops, and sweet. Strong carbonation, the flavor is hard to place, sweet, fruity, airy and light. Quite refreshing.

Thick dark brown colour. Tight, thin creamy head. Rich, bitter, malty aroma, some coffee in there. Initial flavour is bittersweet developing into a more flowery aromatic taste. Feels lively and highly carbonated in the mouth. There’s an aftertaste containing some liquorice.

teddybeer (3330) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle 33 cl: small off white head. Colour: dark brown, blurred due to the brewer’s yeast. Aroma to chocolate, toffee, caramel. Sweet and fruity taste. An excellent beer to finish a day...

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Deep mahogany brown color poured from the bottle at the Belgian beer fest in Carlsbad. Fruity and raisin on the nose. Some brown sugar and caramel on the palate but not much to chew on. Short finish without a ton of complexity. Unfortunately dissapointed.

Periander (50) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Dark reddish brown with a fine tan head. Sweetish aroma. Fuity taste has notes of cherry and currants, but fairly dry with some nice bitterness on the finish. Not very complex but well balanced.

33 cl bottle from LCBO...properly labeled with all the neccessary warnings. Pours a dark clouded red-brown ale into my Westmalle chalace with a proper 2 finger off-white cap..cap reduces to a proper mat and laces well. Aroma is intoxicating...chocolate, figs, smokey-vanilla bean sweetness and a musty under tone. Silken mouthfeel, creamy-cocoa character...best mouth feel and palate of any beer I’ve tasted! Starts with a warm shower of deeply toasted malts and coffee-cocoa tones which become balanced with some tame but assertive hop bearing...mid palate the mix gets more complex, there are a number of flavor decernments but the one that stands out is that of a chocolate covered smoked apple...finishes wet with more flavors arriving late;earthy dates, toffee-earthiness and smokey fruits...add to this a dangerous drinkability and inherent smoothness and we have one of the world’s best beers. There is little I can say compared to the accolades this beer has had from proper critics....all I know is that I wish I had a consatant access to it...if I did I may lose my love of German dunkler bocks.
