BBHansen (571) - Køge, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle @ DØE. Appearance: pours clear dark brown with short lived off-white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: brown sugar, chocolate, dried fruits, alcohol, spices, palette: strong malty and yeasty aroma, average to sparkling carbonation, full body, notable sugar sweetness, somewhat balanced by a medium bitterness, long duration and an oily texture. Overall: tasteful Christmas beer, with a darker malt profile than many other Belgians

SinH4 (1590) - Garching, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2015
Brown color with tan head. Aroma is caramel and brown sugar, very belgian. Taste is also caramel and brown sugar, but nicely balanced. A nice winter brew, albeit very sweet. High but fine-bubbled carbonation.

anstei (639) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle. A spicy Belgian strong as you would expect it, but with a good quality. Fine but heavily carbonized, making it surprisingly well-drinkable.

sir__v (1456) - Lille, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle @ home from Deconinck, Vichte - BE. Color: deep dark brown beer with no carbonation and small ivory brown head. Smell: caramel and toffee domination. Brown sugar and malt concentration. Very sweet nose and caramel. Taste: full body with caramel and sweet taste. Good caramel malt and superb toffee notes. Not so spicy and really great. Very sweet beer with good attenuation. Aftertaste: caramel and brown sugar. I like it!

freretoc (1374) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 18, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2015 Bue en bouteille de 33cl au Kilarney à Besançon. Couleur brune, belle mousse et effervescence moyenne. Nez sur la compoté de fruits noirs et café. En bouche très ronde avec une grosse attaque sur le sucre roux et continuité sur le café et le fruit noir.

ciocanelu (589) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 14, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Review from notes. Slightly hazy brown color with beige head. Aroma has nothing really special, just some malt character. Taste is quite interesting, malt, caramel, dark sugar, molasses and some liquorice. Nice one, balanced and drinkable yet really tasty.

From Uvinum. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 2x13. Nice spicy touch. Low carbonation. I miss more body.

Vignale (2847) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2015
Flaska från Beernavigator. Mörkt mahognyfärgad med lågt skum mycket jästpartiklar. Doft öppnar inte riktigt upp sig muscovado, alkoholvärme och torkad frukt. Småbubblig i munnen, söt med en koncentrerad och lite eldig smakbild. Cognac, torkade päron, katrinplommon och fikon, brända mandlar. Riktigt gott.
