thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. [thank you Skortila/caesar]
Clear brown amber with a nice, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has pear, caramel, yeast and light chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine and light mouthfeel. Sweet flavour, good caramel, yeast and chocolate. Long, lingering aftertaste. Light vinious. Very elegant, and very dangerous, as the 9,5 % is nowhere to be found. Nice

Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2008
A winter warmer. Pours with a huge head. Mild tabacco and smoke aroma. The scotch is a purposeful butterscotch. Lovely after fish.Smooth drinking, though not something for every night.

Pinball (12329) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2009
clear brown, light brown head. caramel, cinnamon, faint hops in the aroma, also some dark fruits. flavor is sweet dark fruits, nuts, brown sugar, faint sourness, raisins, a sweet, malty deal, spiced up, but some fruity flavors do generate a little balance.

deyholla (12289) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle shared by Matt, thanks! Pours a hazy dirt brown with a gray head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a combination of light fruit, grain and spice with a hint of caramel. Flavor starts with earthy grains and light fruit by a bit of backing spice.

madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2006 Bottled: Dark brown coloured. Huge brownish head. Sweetness, caramel, light smoke and light spices in the aroma. Flaovur as well is on the sweet side. Yeast, light liqourice, fruits and some spices in the flavour. Medium bodied with a quite dry mouthfeel. Ends on a light caramelly note with good lasting. Nice one as official belgian beer no. 500.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Murky brown ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Never-ending retention. Vinous notes alongside dark fruit and sweet chocolate in the aroma. Full-bodied and meaty with medium carbonation. Sweet chocolate, dark fruits, restrained alcohol and hops. Sweet, dark fruit and chocolate finish. Thanks go out to darkguardian for providing the bottle!

77ships (11051) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2013
75 cl. bottle @ home from Willems. Bottled on 09/10/2010 – quite odd for a bottle this old to be lying around in a store where the rest of the stock is quite young. The label says that it is good for at least two years after bottling. Once opened - G U S H E R – it just continuous gushing, even after I have poured & lost about half of it, the bottle, half filled with foam continuous gushing. Not a good sign but going by the taste this luckily appears to be more of a yeast issue or something rather than an infection, good. Very dark mahogany, intense red hue, obviously huge beige head that slowly collapses. Nose is very sweet BE Christmas spices, very sticky molasses, very overripe dark fruits, stainless steel, Grand Marnier cake, sticky candy sugar & something wrong maybe infected after all still and not overdone? Tastes like kvass, black bread soaked in a doppelbock, very overripe dark fruit, sticky candy sugar water, light burn, sweet malts, supermarket chocolatedrink, very sweet BE spices, some coca-cola & metals, brandy soaked cake. Body is a touch lighter & carb. is overt. Feels a bit like they made bit off a mess trying to go to a high ABV still quite interested – almost a bit like a DE & BE hybrid. Does certainly improve when it warms up.

DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy brown pour with subdued off-white head. Aromas of caramel malts, some brown sugar, grapes, nuts, and brown sugary peaty funk. The palate is medium to dense, with a nice complexity of flavor, including notes of caramel malt, raisins, brown sugar, and slight old peaty funk. The whole thing never really gets what I would call sweet, but it is more semi-sweet. Well done.

3.1
gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2007
(750 ml bottle, thanks oh6gdx!) Labeled 8.7% ABV. Clear dark brown color, lasting tan head. Slightly acidic, a bit roasted scent. Weak raissin mixed with chocolate and vinous taste, also alcohol. Warming alcohol feeling, but not in the bad way it sometimes is. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
