Had this on tap at the brewpub, Amsterdam, 27th Oct 2009 Pours murky amber with a whitefilmy head. This has a slightly muted nose but there is a touch of vanilla and spice. Good warmth from the alcohol, this like the other beers is quite lovely. A7 A3 F7 P4 Ov15 3.6 armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 31, 2009
0,33 l bottle, bought in Cracked Kettle, Amsterdamyalnikim (802) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 27, 2009
The beer has a nice appearance with a hazy dark brown body and a nice creamy tan head. It has an unpleasant sourish-earthy acedic aroma with some toffe and toasted caramel. The flavor is similar too with its own earthy character...All the brews of t’ij has this earthy and a little bit infected character....I do not know again....It has the nice toffee and belgian yeast characters...But over there is some troublesome character in the flavor...
25/09/2009. 330ml bottle from Beerstore. Hazy red-brown. Puts forth the gorgeous dark figgy fruits of dubbel-lore but they fade to autolysis and I can’t make it through the last third of the bottle... this beer really has potential but don’t we all. The most positive point is the stand of head that holds firmer and longer than George W Bush did to his belief that invading Iraq was justified. gunnar (9697) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2009

One of the nicest looking beers I’ve had in a long time, though I had to pour very carefully to avoid the big chunks of yeast in the bottle. Luminous reddish amber with a fluffy beige head sitting in a glass goblet. Luckily the rest of the beer backs up the appearance. Spicy, fresh nose, with all sorts of aromas fleeting in and out of perception. A deep draught brings frsh brown bread, caramel, figs, coriander, and brown sugar. The finish is a touch sweet and some more carbonation would be nice, but I’m totally nitpicking. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2009
(Draught at Brouwerij ’t IJ, Amsterdam, 3 Aug 2009) Cloudy amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of dark bread and dried fruit. Malty taste with prunes, raisins, caramel, dark bread and a moderate, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, rather sweet. Decent, but nothing exceptional. madvike (3301) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Bottle - Man...I can’t figure out why the score is so low on this beer--it absolutely blew my doors off. It’s a nice pour, all murky brown and almost opaque. It’s one of those beers you can smell across the room, and I got a lots of flavors in the nose: bourbon, sweet bread, toffee, raisins, and anise. The taste is about the same--slight bourbon, raisins, but fairly dry. Finish is sweet, bready malt. Yum. It’s medium-bodied and smooth--just a remarkable all around beer. pivnizub (10813) - Bochum, Porï¿½Å™ï¿½, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2009
Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured,some floaties visible, gushing, but very stable creamy off-white head; fruity and sourish cellary nose, backed by some sweet malt; moderate sourish-sweetish flavour, medium bodied, creamy MF; sourish-malty finish with an increasing bitterness towards the end. Pleasant.......... SaintMatty (7526) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2009
330ml Bottle - Hazy brown with a foamy beige head. Fruity aroma with spicy malt and hints of marzipan and more spicy elements. Fruity and slightly sweet taste with dried fruit, spices and more hints of marzipan. Very drinkable and I enjoyed this one.
