GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap at Front Page in DuPont Circle. Pours a super deep amber with raspberry highlights. The head on this beer is insanely thick and has excellent retention and leaves crazy lacing. Very yeasty aroma with dark fruits, prunes, overripe golden pears, esters. Taste is roasty with hints of cocoa, raspberry, burnt caramel. Moves to some syrupy sweetness and cloying alcohol. Dry aftertaste. cloying.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Dark brown pour, decent head. Malty, sweet aroma. Some mild dark fruit as well. Flavor is similar. Lots of brown sugar sweetness with mild fruit. Pretty straight forward, decent brew.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2009
Bottle at Kerttu, Turku. Dark ruby, nearly black, frothy staying beige head. Mild molassy aroma, hint metal and cocoa. Very simple flavor, roasty molasses, hint of licorice, sweetness, reminds me a bit of the cheaper Baltic porter, noticable alcohol in the finish along with some syrupy cocoa and light herbs. Smooth, quite full palate. Mostly roasted sugar, very simple, the absolute contrast to Fantome in the Belgian scene.

Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2009
The beer was average. The aroma is sweet but it is not too noticable. The beer has a nice dark rosted malt flavor. Not a bad beer, but as a belgiun abbey style I was disappointed.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2009
This certainly exceeded my expectations! Pours a dark brown with a small head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with lots of cherries and pear character. The flavor is sweet bordering on cloying but its tasty qualities redeem this one no doubt. There is some cotton candy and pears, lots and lots of pears.
