HonusWagner (2250) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
A slightly above average Belgian strong dark thing, with a bit of the usual sweet fruity estery component you expect and then some slight orange peel. Drinkable, but totally whatever.

yerffoeg (81) - Dinant, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Une robe brun foncé me faisant penser à une Chimay, une mousse blanche très contrastée et une légère amertume. Pas un souvenir impérissable.

kryon (3929) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2017
Pours dark brown with low tanned head. Aromas of candy sugar, phenols, orange zest, spices, yeast, hints of licorise. Taste has sweet notes of prunes, raisins, candy sugar, oranges, spices, licorise

sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2017
Draft @ Osteria Del Borgo, Roma. Bottle courtesy opened by the bar manager. Acajou, col crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est bien malté sur un caramel dominant et touche de crystal. Rétro sur fine pointe de réglisse, fruits noirs avec un complément de houblons nobles. Palais garde un côté belge sur la levure, cara pâle, crystal, pointe de figue, prune et encore, une petit touche de réglisse. Je retrouve aussi un caractère chocolaté avec un fini collant aux lèvres. Le houblon sur un effet noble apportant juste la balance niveau de l'amertume.

ABS (1130) - Stokke, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Tønsberg. Pours brown to copper. Brown sugar, dates, figs, malt, caramel. Sweet. Light bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Good.

melush (4961) - SPAIN - JUN 29, 2017
33cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Dark amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, prune. Taste is malt, caramel, nuts, prune, hints of chocolate. Medium body, average carbonation.

Gurthnar (6291) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 27, 2017
Tap at Salon piva. Rich, complex intense mix of flavours, mostly malty - caramelly, chocolatey, fruity. Full bodied with lots of sweetness, which is however balanced by med-high bitterness. Some of the fruity character also seems to be fruit derived. Overall a really clean balanced rich tasty beer.

Initially a bit of grass, after some time more dried fruits and spices, amber with a thin ocher head, medium body, carbonation is soft, raisin, caramel, quite sweet, pleasant warming in the final...maybe a bit young but good.

ttoadee (1664) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Brown pour, slight tan head. Nose is dark fruit and some spice. Bittersweet. Middle is plums, raisins, dark malt, and mild dark sugar. Finish is mellow bittersweetness.

Vignale (4120) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
Flaska från SB. BBD 2017-10. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, en del sediment med lågt men kompakt och krämigt skum. Djup söt doft av sött vitt vin, torkad frukt, mörk karamell och sötlakrits. Mjuk rund med väl integrerad alkohol, smaken är torrare och inte lika utvecklad som doften med en lite träig torr eftersmak. Trevlig.

tandembrauer (1669) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2017
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy brown with off-white head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, some chocolate. Tastes sweet with little bitterness. Medium bodied.
