Tmoney99 (15133) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and woody aroma. Medium body. Solid balanced toasted flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

HenrikSoegaard (14710) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Brown colour. Heavy maly light hoppy aroma. Light bitter caramellic flavor. Average light bitter fisnih. Oily palate. Boring brown ale without power.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark ruby red with a medium sized head. Decent retention. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and green apple. Taste starts off nicely with chocolate notes but quickly devolves into a thin and slightly chemically taste. Disappointing.

Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2008
A nice brown ale with a thick moka head. Caramel and chocolate in aroma. In mouth, a good coffee, chocolate and burned toasts, nice and roasted, with light acidic points. For a style I find boring, this is quite interesting. Bieropholie imports.

500cl bottle. Batch 156 (BB 06/06). Amber colour, with a fading off-white head. Brunt malty aroma and flavour. Watery mouthfeel. Taste of roasted caramel and light bitterness at the end. Very good to food - try it to chicken meat.
