Tranquillity (2508) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Thick, malty chocolate-raisin aroma. Fastastic. Hazy dark worn/orange colour, thick beige head. Taste... so strong! Fantastic, oily palate with mämmi taste, prunes and orange finish.

Dedollewaitor (16393) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2007
Tap C4, Odense: Unclear orange/amber with creamywhite head. Very sweet & oily texture. Carbonation is lively. Dark fruits, raisins & plums. Quite easy drinkable though the alcohol is just visible. The finish is short, on that note the beer lacks something. But nice...

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
Cloudy amber-orangey with a medium beige head. Very sweet and very fruity beer. Raisins, plums, white and brown sugar, caramel in the back. Overall impression of a crusty raisin pie. Lots of grassy hops on the nose but somehow they are rather timid in the taste. Alcohol is apparent. Medium to full body with a typical lively Belgian carbonation. Not very a complex beer although quite effective. Despite its high sweetness level I wasn’t tired of it after a 750ml and that’s a good thing. I’m a happy man because I have no bad Prior experience.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours a very cloudy and dark amber with a big head that stays with you and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Smell is of sweet malts and yeast on the start with an almost doughy tone to it. Flavor is full and long with a noticable sweet tone. Alcohol is somewhat noticable, though not nastily so, and it seems to show more so towards the end and as time goes on. Overall this is a very even brew - though it holds no unusual or unique characteristics. The alcohol is masked pretty well andthe flavor is full and smooth. Very drinkable, but with 9%, you feel it, so you wouldn’t be able to go for too much. And at the price I got it, who’d really want to make it a session brew.

Really nice beer with an almost darkbrown beatiful look and big head. Aroflavor of fruits, plums, alcohol, cocnac, hoppy bitternes, caramel, some chocolate, fullbodied and with a warming finish.

3.5
SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle: Poures a dark brown color with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet fruit and earthy tones to it. The taste is a dark rich candy caramel taste and a dry malt finish.

downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle. Middling brown with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of creme caramel and dark fruits. Flavour of dark fruits and muscovado sugar with a long bitter finish. Very easy drinking for 9% ABV and highly enjoyable.

3.8
AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Bottle. Dark, extremely malt-forward. Caramel prominent in flavor and aroma. Maybe a bit too sweet for someone who avoids processed sugars. Very long-lasting finish. Some faint yeast, hazlenut, and roastiness. Pretty nice stuff.
