Bottle @ Kulminator, Antwerp.
[vintage 1998]
Pours entirely clear and deep red with almost no head. Aroma has toffee, strawberries, caramel and just a hint of oxidation. Soft carbonation, fat mouthfeel, extremely velvety. Flavour is pure, fat caramel and toffee, light yeast, some alcohol. Very sweet, but balanced with some tart notes. Very nice.

Gar4016 (24) - , Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Served in lambic basket and probably for good reason as there was a big layer of yeast along the bottom. Looks like 2000 marked on the bottle. Pours dark amber color. Small amount of head dissipates almost instantly. Smells a little sweet like chocolate, caramel and a hint of plum. Tastes quite sweet overall but with complexity, caramel, some chocolate, plums, brown sugar. Sweetness turns to a little bit of alcohol taste and a little light and dry at the end with lingering flavor for minutes. While quite sweet to begin with, it balances out towards the end to make a very enjoyable beer, probably better with age.

beastiefan2k (4694) - Bawlmer, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Cork says 02/2000 , Bottle served in a lambic basket. It pours a clear dark amber/dark copper color. There is absolutely zero head, just a small halo lacing. Aroma has a good amount of cardboard and a good amount of the positive chocolate-cardboard. Sweet and aged with present oxidation. Taste is more like iced-tea syrup with light notes of chocolate-cardboard. Pretty easy to drink and rather light. Reduced carbonation with a slight kick of bittered, stale raisin bread at the end. It was fine, past its peak though.
750mL in Caracole glass @ Kulminator.

JorisPPattyn (10826) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2008
Aged bottle, 1999 vintage Small, disappearing cream-coloured head over ruby-mahogany beer. Rich portwine, madeira, cigar leaf & wine-soaked dried nuts, perfect plum-cake in a glass. Sweet, very sweet even, but with added complexity, flavours as from (milk) chocolate, red portwine, dried figs & plums; rum flavouring retronasal. Oily, very viscous, alcoholburn and -warming; rich & luxurious. Just a tad too sweet, otherwise age has made this beer a topper.

BelgianBeerGal (4709) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2008 33cl capped bottle from Holemans Drankenhandel in Aarschot. Beautiful amber beer with lively carbonation. Sweet complex flavor that is not overpowering. Just a tremendous beer and a great BSA.

4.2
rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle @ Kulminator. Beautiful rich ruby, thin head disappears quickly. Nose is that of a well-aged barleywine - brown sugar, port, honey, slight sherry, dark fruits. Flavor is caramel first & foremost then hints of sherry & brown sugar. Plenty of plum and other dark fruits, cocoa, rich toffee. Avoids being too sweet. Wonderful.
