Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with well-lacing beige head. The aroma is raisin and toffee with a nice acidic tinge to it, lemon, oak, vanilla, and even a bit of cocoa. The flavor is smooth milk chocolate and malt with a mild acidity that cuts through the sweetness nicely. Some fruity notes pop out occasionally, like cherry and kumquat and prune. The finish is on the dry side given the maltiness of the beer. I enjoy this one quite a bit.

Bottle; dark brown pour with a modest off white head that retains well in thins glass. Earthy, dark fruit nose really, with a bit of florals. The flavor profile is fruity, slightly spicy, cocoa, vanilla, earthy oak notes present here. Im wondering why the oak aged our bruin is so mediocre in comparison to this brew.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle: Gusher! Pours a dark mahogany with a nice tan head and nice lacing. The nose is fruity with big dark malts, crystallized caramel and some fig and raisin notes. The flavor is balanced, nice sweet malty body and a thick raisin and plum finish. Light carbonation and hops in the finish. Not bad.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Pours dark nutty brown with big lacing off-white and creamy head. Aroma is sweet, lots of caramel, plums and fruity yeast. Very smooth mouthfeel, very sweet, LOTS of caramel, slightly vinous

Petrus Dubbel. Iíve had it yesterday from the tap and it was great. I like dubbel beers a lot and this is one I havenít tasted before. The head is big and sturdy, the aroma has lot of things going on in it. Hints of yeast, raisins and do I smell a wee bit of chocolate in the background? Aroma was promising, letís go taste. Flavour lives up to the aroma. Full bodied, well balanced. The yeast disappears and makes way for autumn fruit like chessnuts and vigs. And than the appearance. Look at that glass filled with the dark red brownish liquid. This is keeper.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 8, 2011
Better than the blonde one. A little incipit but with some good aftertatse. Not much head and nice spicy aroma.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2011
Bottle. Dark maroon color, slight off white head. Aromas of spice, caramel, some clove, and fruit. A bit watery/thin, tastes like burnt brown sugar and sour fruit.

Not bad but Iím not too impressed. To my mind this is one of those beers that is flavoursome and complex and has no evident faults, but still doesnít come together in a way thatís nice for some reason. Pours deep dark port-like red with a nice medium sized head. Aroma of caramel and aniseed. The flavour is sweet and a little tart, more caramel, aniseed and other spices, a little burnt sugar and some oak. Nice fullish body and thick texture.

thegreenrooster (4365) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Pour is a very dark brown with a average tan head. Aroma is of dark fruit. molasses and anise. Flavor is a nice caramel malt with some sugar and licorice. Decent but a little to much on the sweet side to give this a better score. This brewer goes heavy on the candi sugar.
