Bottled (in Poirotti, Helsinki, blessed be the memory of the pub!). Slightly hazy pale brown colour with a mediumsized pale beige head. Aroma is raisins, mild toffee, alcohol, wood and some nutty notes. Flavour is nutty, yeasty, caramelly and some mild hoppiness to it. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle at LCRBM3. Brown/gold colour. Drinkable brune with surprisingly good hop on the end. TBone (17530) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2007

Dark ruby brown color, small brown head. Very fruity nose, loads of prunes, dates and brown sugar. Crisp carbonation. Prunes, toffee, some hops and even some licorice in the flavor. Some alcohol picks up in the finish. Nice sweetish dubbel. 10% version of this would be interesting - Rochefort influence is evident.
Bottle. From trade with jbrus. A slightly hazy amber to ruby beer with a decent beige head. Weak nose of caramel, sugars and some fruits. Sugary-sweet delicious flavor with caramel, some alcohol notes and a cute little bitterness. Slightly warming in the mouth, with a good carbonation. A nice one, even though the aroma was boring and unispiring. (081003) gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2008

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 Bottle, bought at the brewery. I’ve used Rochefort yeast for this one, brewer Menno Olivier says proudly. Dark brown color. Apple, chocolate, cinnamon and yeast in the aroma. Indeed, there is some Rochefort character, but I wouldn’t have guessed it without knowing. Chocolate, apple and plums in the flavor. Malty, medium bodied, not too sweet. Blackcurrant, somewhat yeasty. Some distant hop character. Velvety. Likeable beer. JorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2007
Fully hazy brown beer, with vanishing head. Wood, dark leaves, earthy notes in the nose, and a slight sourish tinge in the end. Wry, eikengal , wood again - as wood that was starting to rot and dried up again. Just a bit roasted. Very dry MF, dry-out effect. Strange, very dry beer; despite the strange eptithets, IMO totally free of infection, which is good for a small Dutch brewery. caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2007
Hazy brown color, medium head. Aroma of some roasted malt, chocolat, sweetness. Probably the recipe or the brewing has evolved in time, because it was very nice balanced, no strange ingredients were overwhelming taste and aroma. I’m becoming a fan of this brewery!

A Mes rate:
Bottle at LCRBM3. Murky brown with a decent off white head. Earthy and barrel type aroma with some fruity notes. Flavour is roasted malt. Typical for this brewer. Slight soapy notes but still tasty. Chocolate and alcoholic finish. Little too much carb for me but not bad. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
