33 cL bottle, as Vleteren Dark Old Strong Ale, 8%. Pours dark and hazy brown with a lacing tan head. Orange fruity and spiced aroma with a note of roasted malt. Flavour is sweet and roasted malt with a distinct note of fruity yeast. Caramelish finish with a mild yeasty touch. Good but certainly nothing special.

Ungstrup (38383) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2004
An unclear brown beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma contains notes of coriander, oranges, yeast, wet cloth, and is a little sour. The flavor though is sweet with notes of yeast and coriander and a dry hoppy end.

Bottle at home. Hazy orange brown coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Fruity aroma of caramel and spices. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, yeast and spices with notes of liquorice. Spicy finish.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2006
Bottled (Red cap). Very murky dark brown colour, with big beigeish brown foamy head. Aroma of malts, fruits and some alcohol. Also a bit plum. Flavour is enormously plummy with some other fruits and alcohol. A bit roasted/smoked notes also. Wellbalanced, and quite easy to drink. Some yeast coming in also, as it gets a bit warmer. A very good beer, both for "easydrinking" as well as for an evening you just want to have one or two and chat away.

Travlr (26066) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle at the brewery. Dark amber color, off white head. Aroma of dark fruits. Taste is caramel and raisin. Nice.

26th September 2010.
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.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Hazy, greyish brown beer with a creamy head. Very burned malt - almost stout-like - an extremely dry, bitter finish. 111098
