I'm surprised by some of these reviews, I was in Brussels two nights and I was here both of them and I loved it. I will admit that the smoking is a bit of an issue, but you'll get over it soon enough.
On Thursdays they have live music which is really nice, however they raise beer prices 25% when the band is playing! The place lets you have a tab (and they accept AMEX) which is fairly uncommon in most of the bars in Europe that I went to.
I was there the first night from about 8-2:30AM and the next night from 8-4AM (they close at 4AM every night) and my bills were totally reasonable both nights. I mainly got beer from the bar tender Charles who was awesome and I ended up hanging out with him later that second night.
Beer selection is simply amazing, I did run into a few beers that were out of stock (most notably Cantillon 50N 4E) but they have so many beers that you won't be sad for long, I had a 2005 Cantillon Iris that was amazing, a 2005 3 Fontenin Oude Gueze and a bunch of other great beers. But they also have both Delirium beers on tap for very cheap (3.20 euro I think, vs $9 in the US) so you can always fall back to that.
This was my favorite bar in Europe and next time I go to Europe I'm going to try my hardest to get back here again!

Fantastic atmosphere (though the average age of the crowd made me feel my years) and a great selection! I know this is one of the more popular and touristy beer bars in the area and has a reputation for being like a frat house at times, but I love it and think it's an essential stop in Brussels.
