Bottle. [thank you, Harrisoni]Jerre (3857) - Waregem, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2008
Pours a nice, redish brown with a giant, creamy, yellow-beige head. Aroma is sweet, lots of dried fruits, chocolate and toffee. A great creamy mouthfeel, pretty dry, actually. Wonderful flavours, great chocolate, lightly roasted and some good yeast. Fine cocoa dryness in the finish. Very nice beer.

33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex, balanced, cloudy, small head, good brew Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. The Beer floods out of the bottle, and goes on and on. The head is very weak and quickly disappearing. The color is beautiful red mahogany. The aroma is sourish with notes of roasted malt, dark sourish fruits, slightly dry citrus and light candy sugar. The overall impression is a bit disturbed by the sourness IMO. daniele (9888) - ITALY - APR 30, 2008

Pours a murky brown color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of caramel, fruits, yeast and mild smoke. Good flavor of caramel and yeast with some mild fruits. The body is medium with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. A good dubbel. fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 2, 2008

Dark brown with af loose white head
Brown sugar - raisins
Low bitteness but friut notes in the end jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
008-03-05. Dark brown bod with a modest tan head that fades (3+). Mild aroma, tangy prunes/raisins, some kind of dark fruit over malt, which continues in the flavour where it adds magnitude to the tangy fruit aspect. Malt is present, but a touch dilute, and secondary to the afore mentioned fruit character. (6+) Average palate is thinner than I’d personally like for the style. Average, pleasant. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle at Delerium Cafe, Brussels
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear reddish brown colour with purple hints with a low creamy off-white foam. Rich fruity and balanced aroma of dark cherries, berries, almonds, wood and mild spices. Medium-bodied with notes of almond-paste, sweet licorice, tart cherry-skins and dates. Long fruity finish of over-riped cherries, tobacco, almonds and dates. Nice one!
