thewolf (11553) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2007
Pours muddy orange brown with a very large, very creamy white (with yellow and brown notes) head. Aroma is sweet, some caramel, some cranberries - nothing that is easy to discern. Powerful taste, some peppery notes, vinious (but not too much), a sherry-like finish. Good, but not magnificent.

Lubiere (11232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2009
A hazy dark brown ale with a thick receding light moka head. A pleasant aroma of sweet dark fruits and raisins. In mouth, a sweet candy sugar with light orange peels, cherry, apples, light brown sugar. Some warming alcohol in finale. Sweetness comes out much better with an old cheddar. A classic. BB 12-2004.
