Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Pretty good but not in the league of Rochefort or Westvleteren. Its a little bit "hot" but not so much so as the regular 8. It lacks the caramel plum smoothness of the much stronger, previously mentioned beers. This one tastes like 12% where the others taste more like this beers 8%. It does have a nice warming effect though. Overall a good beer but not as much so when I can buy Rochefort 10 for the same price.

hauxe (481) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle and leaves a creamy finger-thick head. Aroma is caramel, lightly yeasty, alcohol. Taste is bittersweet, yet metallic, with hints of banana, spice, and chocolate. Leaves behind an overall rough, unclean impression with a clear delineation between the alcohol and other flavors rather than a harmonious blend. Yeast, alcohol and aluminum in the finish. Body is medium and the carbonation is adequate. Quite drinkable, but also quite disappointing.

caribou43 (719) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 19, 2016
In my opinion, it is an average brown beer. I bought this bottle at Amstein. I drank it at Bonfol. The body is a beautiful deep brown color, white foam, average carbonation. The taste is dry, bready, malt, side of sugar or grape, but it is discreet, you feel that the alcohol is present, a little metalic.

PhillyCraft (6309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog, Bottle shared with Joe, Pours a murky brown color with an average off white head. Strong carbonation. Nose and taste are plum skin, fig, bread, chocolate and grape juice. Medium in body. The alcohol was hidden well in this just like the blonde ale.

anstei (1365) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours cloudy brown with some fine foam. Quite acidic for a bruin, but maybe thats because the bottle is a bit over date. No other signs of oxidation though. Good harmony of malt body and carbonation, matching bitterness. Palate is rather sweet. Decent and nice, but nothing extraordinary either.

alteregoo (1082) - POLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Piana średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, nietrwała, mydlana, szybko opada do zera. Barwa miedziana, opalizująca. Aromat to głwnie rodzynki, daktyle, głg, karmel i zioła. W smaku płsłodkie, ze sporą ilością owocw kandyzowanych, rodzynek, karmelu, miodu spadziowego i fenoli... Goryczka niska do średniej, orzechowo przyprawowa. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, dość pełne w odbiorze. Alkohol obecny w postaci lekkiego rozgrzewania na języku.
Piwo bardzo poprawne, zbalansowane, ale w tym przypadku jest to lekki zarzut - oglnie jest mało intensywne, najmniej wyraziste, najsłabsze z trjki piw marki Achel degustowanych w ostatnich dniach na blogu...
Ps.
Trunek sprawia wrażenie, jak byśmy Extra Bruin skupażowali z wodą gazowaną...
