UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Beer with a huge uncontroled head. Beer is clear and reddish brown but had an enormous amount of undissolved yeast floating around my glass. The aroma is initially very mild and sweet, has vinous notes with toffee and oak appearences. Flavour is oaky and spicy, with a well balanced alcoholic warmth.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 Pours a massive, fizzy head with good retention. Big powerful bouquet charged with ripe, porty notes, a touch of scotch, shows good complexity. Replays faithfully in the mouth. Dark malty notes and some alcohol heat drive the palate. More scotch notes add to the interest levels. Actually shows some surprising restraint on the finish, and never gets cloys or gets overwhelmed with the alcohol. (3.8pts) 2000 Bottling (e3.0 @ Kulminator) - Chocolate brown in colour with a thin creamy head. Sweet malts and chocolate on the nose; shows good intensity. Roast and more chocolate to taste. A reasonably high level of fizz but the chocolate and malt flavours stay in tact. Very vibrant for a 6yr old and must have at least 5 years ahead of it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2005
Dark coppery color, big yellow head. Spicy, sweet, licorice and yeasty, rich aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is rich too: starts with fruity tones, ends with spicy and slightly licorice notes, spices and citrus last in aftertaste. Mild alcohol comes up in the end.

Very spicy nose for this copper special from Des Rocs, with a hint of acidity pointing away. Contaminated??? Oh no... Full body, nutty and very malty, with a slight acidity that made me fear the worst, but finally came into balance here. Kind of a belgian barley wine with spices! Enjoyable, altough I prefer their regular Abbaye des Rocs.

yummy yummy yes yes yes what an aroma - marzipan, cointreau, pain d’épices, gingerbread, or that sweet dark dutch rye bread.... rich malty/bready palate gradually drying up in a lonngggg finish with grains of paradise, lemonpeel, and coating the sides of your mouth with cointreau and fairyfloss and panettone....this beer is my friend.
