Dark brown coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma is very good: sweet, a bit alcoholic and coffee. Flavour is medium sweet, strong and coffee-chocolate like. Nice beer. (Bottle 33cl, it says dark old strong ale vleteren) Borup (15112) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2011

Taste with yeast: more fruitier, malts, light bitter, yeast, light wood and hints of spices and something light dry-ish.
Aftertaste of malts and light spicy and something very light dry.
Soft mouthfeel, low carbo, medium body and light oily texture.
Nice beer. Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2011
330 ml bottle. As Dark Old Strong Ale Vleteren. From Woesten/Vleteren, Belgium. Pours a hazy burgandy with fair tan head. Nose is like sweet old cardboard. Flavor has oxidation, and dark dried fruits. Sweet, but dry yeasty finish. Huge carbonation. I rather enjoyed it. thewolf (12735) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2010

Light gusher. Pours muddy red-brown with a small, frothy, fizzy off-white head. Settles as a very thin film. Aroma is mild, light cellar, lots of dark dried fruits. Plums, prunes, raisins and a bit of malty astringency. Light biscuity as well. High carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, malty, caramel, prunes and plums. Light dark chocolate and a fair dry malty finish. Okay.

Hazy amber brown beer with a small cream head. Light, crisp and semi dry palate. Creamy dry malt and a little caramel. A little orange and whispers of banana and marmite. A few minerals before a dry finish. Not bad.
Trappist and Triple mixed flavour. It would be better if it were one of the two but it seems they could not decide which flavour they would like. The bottle mentioned "old strong ale" but the taste is rather shallow. Travlr (25745) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2010
