Bottle. Murky brown colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel. Flavour is sweet and dry roasted malts, some chocolate, a hint of dark fruits. Slightly dry finish. A very nice dubbel. Grovlam (4211) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle. Large beige creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Dark cola like color. (it was compared with a cola). Aroma was quit lovely with notes of fruit, caramelized, yeast, hint of sweet liquorish, mild toasted malt and what could appear as sweet chocolate. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor. Lingering sweet fruity caramelized finish. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2008

Rich reddy brown, beige head. Beautiful sweet melange - some slight high sour note, a cascade of sweeter tones such as dark fruits, and a good gravelly malty base (bass?) And that’s just the aroma. Pleasantly carbonated, tingles the tongue a bit, but otherwise very smooth. Slightly alcoholic taste, and some tangy spices, but a good fat dark brown roasted malt body. As said below, sweet but not sticky or sickly. Hops quite prominent as part of the spicy side. Finish is roasted malts, a hint of coffee perhaps, and some spiky hops.
Tasted 2008-05-18. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, yeast and plums. Has kind of a coffee like flavour. Quite dark for this style. I like it. Stefano (2004) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2008
Brown reddish body with an off white head. Fruity chocolate caramel in the aroma. Fruity taste with coriander, roasted malts sweet and slight sour finish. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008

Not a fan of this brewery so far. Clear brown with a bubbling brown head, aroma of fermented fruits, grain and old mud, has a little porty notes on the positive side. Flavor is sweet and again a little cloying, with bitter notes of metal. jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Dark ruby colour, big golden brown foam which just made the most amazing double ring shape in my glass while collapsing. Spicy caramellized sugar aoma, vanilla and oak. Very full barrique flavor, vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, . Dusty wood and herbal hops retronasal. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle at Chaucer’s, thanks Julie!- Pours a dark brown with reddish hues.Frothy beige cap Plummy, fruity aroma with nice yeast, Belgian candy sugar, caramel and some vanilla with hints of molasses. This is quite fruity and sweet. Like raisin bread with other sweet dried fruit. Toasty and caramel flavours also come forth. Its prettywoody as well. Finish is creamy as pet the style. Lingering bitterness with some fruit. Good brew!
