janubio (563) - SPAIN - MAY 5, 2012
330 ml. bottle. Brown colour, with red hints when you hold the glass to the light. Big off-white head that takes its time to fade. Smell of dark fruits, prunes, raisins, chocolate, toffee and vanilla. Strong body, good carbonation, thin and creamy palate. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and maybe a hint of cherries. A warm alcoholic feel aftertaste, and a great beer, imo.

As the name inplies it pours dark brown, and eventually turns black as it pools in the glass. The head is huge. Takes a while to die down. Nose is hay and grass at first, some caramel and chocolate notes as well. Big dark fruit character, dates, prunes, plums and light spice. Taste is belgian rock candy sweet. Some good bitter balance as well which eventually overtakes the flavor in the end. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean. Medium bodied with a good length aftertaste.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2012
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, crisp-bread and raisins. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, chocolate, raisins, prunes, brown sugar, crisp-bread and a spicy bitterness with a touch of liquorice. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced, tasty and very nice.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a small (less than 1 finger) off white fizzy head that dissipated rapidly leaving behind a very thin film and small collar which did allow for some fair spotty streaks of lacing. The aroma was of a dark bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, honey, dark fruit (plums and raisins) and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was sweet and malty with hints of toffee and honey from the start with the finish being about the same but with a touch of dark fruit, a strong yeast presence and a moderate dose of alcohol at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a nice fruity sweetness left on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just short of medium in body with a mild syrupy texture and a nice strong carbonation. Overall a really nice tasting Strong Ale with a superb drinkability...

Lot of flavor and nice finish, but not all that great overall. I’d call it above average overall.

11.2 Ounce bottle. Pours a deep brown with a tons o’ head. Nose is skunky when first pour that dissipates to standard fruity with a bit of spice. Taste is a hint of citrus. Aftertaste is a bit off (almost like a latex glove), but I like this beer. +0.2 for the picture of the smug a**h*** on the bottle ;)

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2012
Draft @ Delirum, Brussels. Cuivré avec un col épais crémeux beige. Arôme rappelle une sorte de purée de groseilles avec une pointe de réglisse. En bouche, le tout est léger, malté cara/pale avec une pointe d’aigreur fruitée, de baies noires de groseilles ou mûres. Palais reste pétillant, et je note sur la fin un profile de réglisse qui se précise lorsque la bière se réchauffe.

DYCSoccer17 (3513) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
750mL bottle purchased at Total Wine and More in Sacramento, CA. Opens with a thunderous pop. The aroma on this is nice enough, with some lightly sweet fruity esters, and some dusty esters as well.I can’t help but to pick up fruity raspberry aromas, which is A-OK in my book. Nicely aromatic. Mostly transparent, very fizzy cola-colored body with a cola-colored head that is medium and has decent retention. Quite a fizzy head, though. Starts fruity, and a bit overly carbonated. I detect that same raspberry that I get in the aroma, although it is very fleeting here in flavor. The beer then becomes a little caramelly, nutty, and somewhat toasted and sweet again. It dries out towards the end, and finishes with a bit of a woodiness. I think this is a nice beer. I just wish the carbonation was turned down, and it would be a 4+ beer.
