cthomas2390 (224) - Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pours amber with a good head but a fair amount of sediment (vigorous pour, but still). Apple and toffee on the nose with some sweet Christmas spice. Sweet malty caramel flavours with alcohol sweetness and heat coming through towards the end. Residual Christmas cake notes on the finish.

Icedwarf (432) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Donker bier wat niet lang blijft hangen. Smaak doet denken aan aardbei en kersen. Fruit overheerst. Daarnaast ietwat rooksmaak.

ruigo (1269) - PORTUGAL - JAN 16, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a brown colour with a thin tan head/lacing. Aroma is malt, caramel and light yeast. Average to low carbonation and medium body. Taste is light bitter and light sweet, well balanced. Overall, a tasteful beer with a bit alcohol.

sinte (366) - Udine, ITALY - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle 0.33L. Dark brown body with a large, creamy, tan head, mostly lasting with nice lacing. Moderate-to-heavy malty (roasted, caramel) and moderate hoppy (orange) aroma with notes of red fruits (cherry), raisins and spices. Moderate-to-intense sweet flavour with light-to-moderate bitter character and light acidity. Medium-to-full body with creamy texture; lively carbonation; some light alcoholic feeling in the finish.

StoutHead (715) - DENMARK - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear-ish red with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is sweet and caramel-y. Taste is of malt, spices, dark fruits, molasses, bread and yeast. Very sweet and very smooth. Has a bit of a hop-bitter aftertaste. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden but does appear in the finish. Empty your bottle in one go or you’ll get a lot of yeast in the second pour. Very drinkable.

Torrefacto (653) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2014
El color es caoba oscuro y sucio, bastante feo, Chi una espuma crema que se disipa rápidamente. Los aromas son tenues de galleta, pan, caramelo y ligero chocolate. En boca obtenemos esas mismas sensaciones con un regusto ligeramente ácido y afrutado y una textura algo aguada. En realidad lo mejor es el sabor, está muy buena, pero tiene algunos defectos que la alejan de las mejores estilo.

rok1024 (1155) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - DEC 30, 2013
Very murky appearance with lots of yeast particles. Deep red towards brown colour, medium head. Fruity, spicy and malty aroma, sweet and sour, very good balance. Alcohol is amazingly well hidden. Grand seasonal winter beer.

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a deep ruby colour, with a thin off-white head and plenty of yeasty bits floating around; aroma of dark berry fruits; taste is soft, supple, with generous dried dark fruits; a little spice; this is a lovely, almost soothing drink.
