GregMooreNH (2016) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2019 Pours cloudy, dark mahogany with a one finger, beige head. Aroma is light dried fruit, some toffee and Belgian yeast. Taste is raisin and brown sugar, moving to roast and Belgian yeast. Finish is light roast. A good Belgian dark.

oblaten (182) - SPAIN - APR 21, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2019 Ale fuerte belga. Rosa afrutada con sabor a frambuesa o frutos fes bosque. Dulce sin exagerar. Muy buena.

HECT0R (18) - SPAIN - NOV 5, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2018 Cerveza de color ámbar, con gusto dulce debido a sus frutos rojos y con regusto a regaliz, un toque más fuerte de su hermana caracole

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2018 Wat een topper... Schitterende samenstelling is dit. Speculaas. Caramel. Smooth maar krachtig. Een grand cru ineen jasje van stout. Wel een Bier om te eindigen. Want hierna smaakt je topper flop.

hauxe (1761) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2018
From the 75cl bottle. Brown with a frothy head that turns creamy and lingers. Some evident floaters. Aroma of berries, tangerine, Christmas spices. Taste is fairly well balanced between the tart berry notes and an underlying nutty sweetness. A very mild, somewhat numbing bitterness rounds out the finish. Body is medium, carbonation is prickly. It calls itself a brown ale but is plainly better classified as it is: a Belgian Strong Ale. Nice!

DraftPours23 (1584) - FRANCE - OCT 24, 2018
Rouge très sombre ou brun rougeâtre ? Très belle mousse épaisse, tient bien. Nez de fruit mur, vineux. En bouche, un petit côté oud bruin, presque un goût de fût. Du fruit confit, une légère amertume (torréfié ou houblon?) en fin de bouche. Bien équilibré, très sympa. Légèrement astringente.

Brown silky head. Sweet bready aroma some cherry. Taste Woody caramel hint of sourness in the finish

DraftDodger (2937) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2018
Copenhagen 17/8 2018. 33 cl bottle from Den Belgiske Ølbutik, Vanløse. Nostradamus dressed up as a Snail with a set of Binoculars on the label. Can understand that this one has won several medals in the World Beer Championship - but probably not based on the label illustration. Pours hazy medium brown with bubbly, off-white head. Settles as thin layer of foam barely covering the surface of the beer. Moderate lacing. Aroma is intense, musty and strong. Dominated by Dark fruits and alcohol. Some sour, bitter streak. Strong carbonation. Rather thin, very lively and prickly texture. Slightly sticky. Flavor is lightly sweet followed by way stronger sourish bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter and boozy. Less overwhelming than in the aroma. Light burn. A not very sweet but quite boozy Belgian.

3.8
Aggiebob (2258) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 4, 2018
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2018 Bottle. It poured a cloudy brown color with a thick tan head that has good retention. The lacing is nice. The aroma has Candi sugar, toffee, cocoa, vanilla and dark stone fruit notes. The taste is heavy on the tongue and sweet. A bit warming as well. Very nice sipping ale. Liquor Express
