dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, butterscotch, and raisin. Flavor was pretty oxidized, similar flavor to the aroma. Meh.

Decent beer with light hop flavor and quite some carbonation. It somewhat feels like a good beer with water though.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head recedes leaving slight sheets to mottle surface. Pit fruit aromas. Crisp with upfront dark nuts and pit fruit turning to toasted caramel in the dry finish.

jake65 (3462) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle: Pours a beautiful wooden amber color with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty, kind of sugary sweet. Light toffee. The flavor is again sweet. Malty, sugary, caramel, toffee, nuts, and lightly citrus toned. Silky mouthful. Finishs clean and sweet. Not bad at all, if you like candied sugar sweetness throughout.

PolishHammer (124) - Norwalk, Connecticut, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Sweet candy sugar and malt. Carmel and toffee with a nice, very present sourness. Reddish brown with an offwhite head. Refreshing sourness. Very drinkable.

darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2010
In bottle; pours brown. Aroma almost of milk chocolate and lemon; kind of odd. Taste was OK, some caramel and lemon/citrus notes. Not what I was expecting from this beer

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Pours chestnut brown with thin head that doesnt retain. Nose has estery bready notes and and a roasted quality. Palate is pleasantly bubblegum like with the yeasty flavors, slight chocolate to roasted malt, and fairly sweet finish. Not bad for a dubbel, but other examples are far superior and much more worth seeking.

markas101 (2379) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2010
33 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA. Hazy deep amber colour, thin bubbly head. Strange but not unappealing aroma of sweet basement and meat like my previous Petrus Oud Bruin. Sweet flavor with a mixed bitterness and alcohol burn on the finish.
