    THEY ARE CASH ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They greatly prefer Euros to USDollars as well. They do not accept CC!!!!!!!!!! The sushi place across the street also only accepts cash and Euro CC!!!! Remember that!!!!! Not that I know from experience or anything, but I've heard stories. Sad, sad stories.

    I have always paid cash there. There is an ATM just around the block on Lange Gasthuisstraat, east of De Kulminator.

    It closes at 12am....or so I've heard. Don't been seen by the cops trying to get in there either once it is closed or they may ask questions.

    All of my semi-joking aside, Jim is right and I'm serious about the cash-only part. He's been there a bit. There is an ATM well within 5min walking distance of Kulminator. I think it is an ING bank. I would suggest getting money ahead of time though instead of leaving to go to the bank after you get your bill.

    Really, the ATM closes at 12 AM? I think the latest I have used it is around 10 PM on my way to Kulminator.

    Click on the green icon that looks like a tree (insert/edit image), and then enter the URL of a jpg file. (Maybe gif works, too.) The URL must be for a file. Preview your post before posting.
     
  14. That is the stupid thing Jim, i push on that button untill my thumb hurts but nothing happens. The same with the film modus. It worked in the beginning of this new set up but now it stopped!

    Very strange, Thijs. I don't know what could be causing that. Maybe your browser?
     


  16. I am working with Google chrome now and it works! (I hope...)

    I just went to Kulminator this week, thought I'd mention that Dirk found some 1979 St Sixtus Prior and ABT! And the prices aren't too excessive either.

    Yes! I had that Prior last time. Fantastic deal! For those who wish to quibble, it's listed as "1979 +/-".

    Breaking News: Kulminator will be closed April 10th through April 19th, 2012.
    There is a slight chance it might be opened on the 19th, but at this point they say it will be closed.
     
  21. Jimbo, I am planning on going up on Saturday, the 21st, should we be good to go? Thanks!
     
  22. What is 'not too excessive' Eric? Did you drink them?

    Thijs,

    I think it was 9 euros each, something like that. And I tried them, just for the experience. Little to no carbonation, lots of raisins/plums in the flavor (especially the Prior). I'd had a 1988 ABT a few years ago, and by memory it wasn't too different.

    As far as I know, yes, but I will see if I can find out anything more and get back to you here.

    Here is the sign that is posted a Kulminator (I copied it from a post on Facebook).

  26. Nice!! Thanks for the info. I have made the trip up from Brussels before to encounter the Gesloten sign of despair!! You would think I would have learned to call ahead having lived n Belgium for almost 3 years....
     
  27. I just called the Kulimator and they are back up and open for biz. I am headed up there tomorrow; anyone have any advice on what to try (i.e. verticals)? I am hoping they have some De Dolle SN special reserva, as that has eluded me thus far!

    They had several vintages of Stll Nacht Reserva last month. You should be ok. I especially liked the 2005.
