JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2013
2012 edition, bottled on July 10, 2012 and tasted nearly a year later on June 19, 2013. Reddish brown with tons of suspended particulates and a medium-sized bright white head that is mostly, but not completely diminishing. Slightly chalky aroma underneath a healthy amount of alcohol, dates, brown sugar, light banana, cherry grenadine and rich malts and graham crackers. Malt aroma does seem like it is a little flat and stale, which really puts a damper on the whole thing straight away. Banana esters are fairly heavy up front in the flavor, mellowing out into mild clove, molasses, rum raisins, anise and alcohol. Slightly tingly carbonation with a full mouthfeel. Ok, but Im a little skeptical that this will "develop in the bottle for up to 5 years" - I feel that its going to turn into a cardboardy mess pretty quickly.

Fairly malty. Lovely deep amber color. Noticeable Belgian yeast funk going on. Not unpleasant, though. Complex and some subtle spice.

Complex and tasty. Spices, dark fruits, dark fruits, and brown sugar. Smooth with a full body.

thepatrickman (1286) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle at a share. An excellent example of a really under-brewed style. This nails the sweet, raisin malt and Belgian yeast interplay of some of the best dubbels. Complex and heavy, but worth sipping slowly on a cold night.

markducommun (1077) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottled 1/14/13, consumed 9/11/16. Cloudy light mahogany, minimal tan head. Nose of deep molasses, raisin, allspice. Dark fruitiness. Lightly bitter, spicy. Muted, mellow sweetness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Long finish. Everything blends together beautifully. Undertone of alcoholic sharpness. This aged remarkably well. Excellent.

kathouse (1860) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Clear light brown with orange tints. Sweet aroma of candies and raisins. Body is light and sweeter than I would expect. Light spice with a lingering finish.

Luvystypotables (1893) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Aroma of prunes, raisins and malt, pours a cloudy reddish brown color. Heavily carbonated. A full bodied feel a boozy malt taste with notes of plums and prunes.

Plenty of plums, figs and raisins. Delicious. Cerveja muito saborosa, com notas de frutas vermelhas maduras, ameixas, figos e passas.

Sidder og hygger med denne l, efter at have fet en almindelig dsel. Den giver nok lidt til llen i den positive retning. Let spritet, lidt brndt smag. Eftersmagen er efter min mening lidt for brndt. Har ikke helt fylden til at smage af "rigtig Belgien".
