Svesse (7949) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2006
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Colour is dark brown with orange or ruby notes, beige foamy head. Nose is malty and fruity with tropical fruit, raisins, blackberries and sweet syrupy notes. Taste is fruity, rather malty, with dried fruit (raisins, prunes), marzipan, tropical fruit, notes of brown sugar and syrup. Well balaced sweetness, evident but never too much, alcohol well hidden. Slightly drier finish with notes of spicy hops. Elegant and very nice.

RichardGretton (4686) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle. Black beer with a reddish brown tinge and a strong bubbly head. The aroma is lightly spiced and fermented and the flavour is fermented winter berries with a touch of cream in the body. Overall a nice but plain Belgian beer.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2006
This beer pours a mahogany reddish color with a medium sized pearlish white head and good lacing. The aroma is strongly sweet with caramel and bread and a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Strongly sweet and dark tasting beer with coffee and vanilla extract abundant. Absolutely a beautiful beer to begin with but astoundingly sweet as it warms, almost difficult to temper. Carbonation is fairly mild with heavy burnt coffee aftertaste. Mildly dry, stout like almost. Very little alcohol presence.

Arayaga2 (2142) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Dark brown beer with big brown head, it smell sweetly of malt. Its a lot like the maredsous 10, only sweeter and less astringent. Lightly fizzy and malty in taste, this is not a heavy or hard to drink beer, and not especially flavorful, either. $3/12 oz

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Pours deep brown with a huge fluffy head. Sweet malt aroma with a caramel / malt taste. This one will warm you up. I cant wait to try the 10.

Poobah (389) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle. Syrupy and yeasty aroma. Very nice head. Good lacing. Caramel, raisins and lasting sweet aftertaste. Yeasty flavor throughout with bitter finish and alcohol warming. Carbonated, malty mouthfeel. Very good beer. Would be perfect to add to gameday chili.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Dark with a burbon aroma. Tastes like a sweet burbon, with the alcohol quite evident. I was surprised to see so many high ratings. Had on tap at Flying Saucer in Houston.

Ibeeria (2) - USA - AUG 1, 2006 does not count
Deep brown, with a ruby tint. Poured a nice head with quite impressive lacing all over. Smell is of ripe fruits/malts/and yeast. Taste upfront has fruity tones. Ripe cherries, plums, and green grapes. Infused with deep rich malts. A very complex Dubbel. Finishes crisp and dry, and semi creamy. Alcohol warming is also present. An incredible Dubbel and one that you should definitely try.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2006
Dark coloured with an average off white head. Sweet yeasty aroma, with some dark fruity hints (prunes?) and a little herby-caramel touches. Full sweet caramel body. Finish is roasted, bitter-sweet with again some caramel touches. A very nice belgian strong ale.

505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUL 27, 2006
A nice beer, no major faults, but nothing to rave about. Sweet and yeasty aroma. Nice flavor, very drinkable, medium body. A rather run of the mill beer, but good.
