TaxiDriver (1746) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2008
Moderate yeasty, caramel, light fruity, malty dark bread and light alcoholic. Dark red body with a creamy off-white large head, long lasting. Light sweet taste with a long duration. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation and a malty taste. A very nice beer.

750ml bottle at Vol de Nuit in nyc. Terribly unimpressed by this belgian ale. For the style, which is a hit for me, is sadly as generic as they come, overly sugary some cherries. But no real complexity to over shadow 8%, dry finish. Very disappointed.

Pours a honey color with an audible fizz, like pop. This beer is good in all categories, but at the same time is nothing special. Flavor is of honey, mango, orange preserves. I’m pleased overall.

75cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a light brown with a thick light brown head. Smells sweet with notes of toffee, caramel, raisins. Flavor is malty, ripe fruits and a little banana. Overall, a nice ale.

Joakgust (1407) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2008
Tap at Man in the Moon bar - Fantastic looking amber colored beer accompanied by superb glassware. Toffee and caramel together with yeast dominate the aroma. Flavor is very full bodied with strong notes of dried fruits, nuts and caramel. On the verge of being to sticky, but stays behind the line making it a must.

Bottle. Lots of malt in the aroma. Pours a clear amber, a brown tinted head. Low carbonation. A smooth sweet malt, with a faint bitterness at the end. Exceedingly pleasant. Was suprised at the 8%, usually you can smell/taste some of the alcohol, in this one there is none. SMOOOOTTHHH.
